Aside from the bus ride, Chritmas was so much fun and I felt so loved and spoiled. Probably the most unusual thing that I got was a beautiful hot pink cuckoo clock. It sounds horrendous...A cross between a horse neighing and a sick crow but oh so beautiful. Seeing the kids was the best part. Big and little...(my children and grandchildren.) I made the most awesomest (I know, I know, it really isnt a word but it fits ok?) prime rib! You coat it in spicy mustard, salt and pepper and rosemary then roll it in rock salt. When it is done you break the salt shell with a hammer. It is yummy.
Here is Liv tracking Santa on the computer keeping me company while I cook.
Daniel and I celebrating in our Santa hats!
Liv and I getting ready to down some sparkling cider!
I did get all the projects done with lots of hard work. I literally sewed until a half an hour before I left for Washington!
The kids got their quilts.
I made Stacie a new purse.
And these cute Dresden plate quilt hangings that I saw in a BHG magazine..These make up really fast and are super cute.
As you can see by the banner at the top, Taylor and I went sledding when I got back. it was so much fun. I have the skinned knees to prove it. We are planning on sewing tonight and going sledding tomorrow! WOOHOO! Little Miss Tayloree got a sewing machine for Christmas from her Mom. We both are thrilled!
Happy New Years all...oxxoxoxoxoxoxomelinda
