Starting to feel like Christmas

With December just one more day away, I'm really starting to feel like Christmas (which is a lot better than feeling like the flu for the past couple of weeks).

.... we've put up lighted trees and reindeer in front of the house and evergreen wreaths on the front door and backyard gate. Now we just need a little snow. Next weekend we'll be setting up the Christmas tree in the living room window.

.... Sarah's and David's quilts are ready to give to them in time for Christmas.
(Thanks to Mary Lyn for the lovely quilting and the
super fast turnaround on Sarah's Snowmen Quilt)

and .... our package of lebkuchen arrived from Germany! Lebkuchen are German cookies made with ingredients like hazelnuts, walnuts, almonds, orange peel, honey, chocolate. Absolutely delicious! They are a family tradition for us - it wouldn't be Christmas without these treats.

A Quiet Weekend

These treasures arrived in the mail on Friday - some new fabric and two great books. Got them just in time too. My 24 year old son arrived here sick with the flu on Saturday afternoon so, while he sleeps, there is lots of quiet time in our house this weekend - perfect for reading.
