Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas. We are still recovering. I don't think that I was in bed before 1:00 or 2:00 AM all week before and not til 3:00 AM on Christmas eve. Little girl had a good time despite a bad cold that required frequent nose attacks by tissues (poor thing). I worked Christmas eve but was out of there by about 2:30 PM. Picked up Abby and finished some last minute things before heading over to Meema and Da's. They had a gathering for family and neighbors. Abby had a good time and we stayed way past our goal of 8:00 PM departure time.
She looked so cute in her Christmas outfit :)

So anyhoo, we left Meema's pretty late. My plans for reading Christmas stories and putting out cookies and milk for Santa with little girl went out the window since she fell asleep on the way home. Once I had her settled and snug I put out her gifts making sure to leave room for Santa (Sissy). :) I was up til 3:00 getting ready! I decided to start a Christmas tradition of giving her an ornament of her own each year. The ornament would relate to something special to her at that time. She got 2 this year since we were apart last Christmas. The pictures are a little blurry but they speak for them selves :)

She loved them both.

Yep! Santa was here

Her special stocking made with scraps from her 100 Good Wishes Quilt :)

Sleeping angel ! She has no idea what is waiting for her. Stay tuned for Christmas day pictures :)
