Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas. This will be my last post for the year. We are going to the in-laws for Christmas and between my FIL and DH I have a very slim change of any computer access. They are also on dial up, so I get impaction.
On Saturday we went and had picture with Santa, and it went well. LM was full of smiles. Then on Sunday she came down with a nasty cold. It is the first time she has been sick and she just wants to be held. Was starting to think we would be home for Xmas, but today she started to get better. I stayed home with her, as she was too sick to go to daycare, and tomorrow DH already had the day off, so I think she be good to go Xmas eve. She is sleeping now, yesterday she wouldn't even sleep unless I was holding her, poor little thing.
Wishing every one a great Christmas and all the best in the new year.

Presents & December

Last Monday was my guild Christmas party. we always have this at someones home. One of the girls had recently gotten a long-arm so we picked her house so we could check out her "baby". As always the party was lots of fun and included a gift exchange. We play the game were you pick a present and the next person can pick from the pile of steal you present. We open the presents at the end. This is what I ended up with. The puppy ornament was on the outside of the present and he just called to me. Inside was the lovely hot mat and felt ornament. There was also some peanut brittle but it didn't last to the photo.

December is a very busy month in my house hold, starting with my birthday at the beginning. We quite often keep it low key, with just a nice dinner out and a movie. I just wanted to share these lovely gift I received from my family this year, a couple of Australian fat quarters and this little sewing bag. Both sides are done the same, when you open it up, there is a spot for your little scissors, a spot for needles and a little drawstring bag for any other goodies.
On Friday was LM birthday and Gran sent her this lovely knitted teddy bear. I just love how bright and cheery she is. Don't you just want to give this teddy a hug?
Tomorrow is my first day back at work and LM first day at Daycare. I am stressing over it, I kept trying to tell myself that everything will be fine, but I just can't help it. It's going to still be silly cold. Not the kind of day you want to head out if you don't have to and for the last year I didn't have to, so think I should stay home till its warmer. (Don't think my boss will go for that).
We are hoping next weekend it a lot warmer as would like to try and get picture with Santa and do any last minute Christmas shopping, before we head to Grandma's Christmas eve. I think we have too much packed into December this year, but there not much that we can do, so will just try to enjoy as much as we can.

Good mail today, DH came in with the mail and there was three thing in it for me: something non quilting, my regular quilting mag and my SSCS package. I was expecting a couple of little thing, but not this many packages. I open the lovely heart ornament and it will go on the tree when I put it up next week. Once I am done this post I going to sit down with the magazine. Should be a nice relaxing evening.
I have got some quilting done, I finished putting the bunny top together and started quilting it. I am keeping the quilting simple as I am still trying to get it done by LM birthday, which is the 11th, so running out of time.
We are having a birthday party for her Sunday. Hopefully people will be able to come. A lot said they were, but the weather turned nasty today. DH came home at lunch as the roads were already bad. There is meant to be 20cm of snow and it's real windy. By Sunday its meant to just be cold, hoping that is the case. With DH home this afternoon got a lot ready, so tomorrow will be a little more relaxing. Shouldn't complain, the winter has been pretty mild so far. I am glad I didn't have to go out in it.
