Christmas is over...already??

Why is it that we wish for Christmas to get here and it's gone in the blink of an eye? We had a really special Christmas this year as my DH's son, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren came to spend the holiday with us in NJ. The drove up from Florida in the Blizzard of '09 and managed to make it here in one piece! We totally surprised my husband who had no idea that they were coming and we had a terrific time together. I managed to get off of work for a week and we spent the entire week together.

The children were able to play in the snow, we had 24 inches! They had never seen snow before so they went out and made snow angels and snow men. All in all it was a terrific holiday. They left today for the long drive back and we already miss them terribly. How many days til next Christmas???

Pillows Pillows Pillows

I am drowning in tuck pillows! I bought a bunch of premade tuck pillows from a seller on Ebay and decided to stitch a bunch of presents for Christmas. I have officially finished them all and pressed, stuffed and tucked them all into place. I think they turned out really cute and I enjoyed them all. The Santa's are from Prairie Schooler, the Sheep is from this years JCS Ornament issue and the two others are freebies from the Diabetes Tree fundraiser. Now to wrap them all...
