A Bit of a Crazy Week
This week has been a little crazy for me. I usually consider myself a "Last Minute Lucy" and at this time I am usually in a panic to finish up my Christmas sewing, gift wrapping and cooking. Other than pumpkin rolls I don't do any Chritmas baking so that is not an issue. Anyway, we had two family Christmas parties last weekend so it seems as Christmas is all over. On Saturday we had a family party at my parent's home with 46 of the 48 family members in attendance. It was a wild time and also a very fun time. The day included breakfast, gift opening, games, snacks, horse drawn carriage ride, more games, more snacks and then dinner. Then on Sunday Steve and I celebrated Christmas here at our house with our family, all 14 of us, plus my parents. It was a fun day of family time (7 grandchildren, including 4 - 1 year old boys), gift exchange and dinner. It was so good to have everyone home at one time. I have been able to kick back a little bit and have enjoyed it. Yesterday after volunteering at school and an office party I finally got back to piecing a block from the Block of the Month that has been cut and waiting for probably a month or better. This morning I made made another block for the BOM and started on the 4 corner blocks. It has been fun to just relax and do some sewing. In fact as I write this post it is almost noon and I am still in my jammies. I have a couple of loads of laundry to fold and put away, then I need to get ready to go to a Christmas party with my Grandma at the nursing home here in town. I told Steve that it felt kind of wierd this week since we have already celebrated Christmas with our kids and grandkids and he agreed. He said he had been thinking about it too and was glad that we have two Christmas programs at our grandkids schools this week. Oh, and I need to add that we will be celebrating Christmas this weekend with Steve's family. Merry Christmas everyone!!!
