Just relaxin....

Hope everyone is enjoying a nice relaxing Christmas Holiday like we are. We are just spending our time eating, napping, eating, visiting friends, eating, playing games, did I say eating???? Anyway, it's been a fun time! Our Christmas Eve started off with a wonderful Christmas service at our church, however, the 300 luminaries we prepared were a bust as it rained ALOT! Oh, well, no need to prepare them for next year!
Christmas morning the Sweetie Man and I prepared a breakfast for my son and DIL then proceeded to open gifts....as you can see, Nintendo DS was the big gift along with all sorts of games!





And I waited till Christmas morning to open my Secret Santa gift from Barb in my Yahoo Cross Stitch Group! Oh, I loved this!!! Thanks again, Barb!

Plus I personnally recieved some great gifts including gift cards to my favorite craft and book stores and an awesome new purse. I loved everything!
Contrary to popular belief, I can bake (just not cook very well!)so we had cookies (pic is a little fuzzy)to munch on all day till a delicious chicken dinner from the Sweetie Man, head chef in this house!


Oh, and I wanted to show off this memory bear I was sorta commissioned to make for a friend of mine. Her husband's uncle passed away this past year and this was made from the golf shirts/sweaters. Not too bad for a first attempt...


So, that's about all going on at this end of the world. Doing some stitching and finishing off a special gift for a special little man in our world....so it's back to the needle and thread for me now! Hope your relaxing and enjoying the holidays too...till next time, yinz crazy guys.....

Looks like it was a fun "Nintendo" Christmas! I love the Sweetie's britches! Too Fab! I miss those Stooges being on tv. The bear is adorable. Great idea.
