December Recap

Hello Friends...
I had a few seconds so I thought I would give you a recap of my December in pictures.

I did not get to decorate very much this year due to my arm being the way it is. However I did put all 20 of my Nativity sets out.

I did have a little Christmas tree.

The only other decorating I did in the house is in my kitchen.
I love Jim Shore figurines.

I was unable to put up my 6.5 foot tree due to my arm still hurting, so my husband being a manly man went outside and promptly decorated a 35 foot one in our yard. (Love him!)

Christmas Eve was spent at my Mother in laws house with these little cuties! 

We had a lot of fun and too much was eaten by all!

Later that evening we attended our churches Candle Light Service.

Truly beautiful service.

My gifts from my hubby with my help. lol

Christmas day we go to my Mom and Dad's house.

When I got there my older niece had the sweetest card she had made for my husband and I.....she can draw like you can not believe. (she is only 10 years old)

The best thing ever is watching the little ones open gifts! (BIG gifts at that)

But even better than that is watching two grown men work like mad to make one little girl very happy after opening said gift!

This is my mom who is a very gifted quilter herself,  I gave her a stack of fabric and her first spool of Aurfil thread.

As you can see by this quilt she made for my sister in law who is a photographer.

Can you see the camera shaped blocks?

Our family (my side anyway)
I am on the left in red, my son is directly behind me and my husband behind him.
My mom beside me and my dad behind her.
My brother is behind my dad with his littlest one on his shoulder. My sister in law in front of them and my niece and nephew in front of her.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. And I hope you have a Happy and Blessed New Year.

Hugs and best stitches to you,
a.k.a. Mrs. Sew & Sew
