What a wonderful, fabulous long weekend this has been!! Wednesday kicked it off (really Tuesday kicked it off . . . my co-worker and I were the only ones there and it was soooo slow--we wrapped presents!) with a leisurely start to the day, a late breakfast/brunch for Todd and I, and then I got to the baking that was my part for Thanksgiving (an apple pie, a pecan pie, and cranberry quick bread). Todd and I had dinner together then he carried me to Joc's house, so Ellie and I could have a 'sleepover'. Aaaaand, so I could get up early and help Jocelyn orchestrate the stuffing and turkey preparations. :)
Thanksgiving dinner went off without a hitch! Jocelyn set a gorgeous table . . .
Ellie and Everley were just darling in their beautiful dresses . . .
The only thing missing was the Panter crew . . .
But they celebrated their first Thanksgiving in California making fun memories like eating Thanksgiving dinner on the floor of their new apartment, because their new chairs had arrived, but their new table hadn't! With littles, those kinds of mishaps are adventures and I know they'll look back on that meal with smiles! We got to FaceTime with them that afternoon, and that was sweet!
Friday was a very quiet down day . . . some stitching in the nook . . . some Christmas movies . . . leftovers for lunch and dinner . . . my perfect way to spend the day after! No shopping for this gal, unless it's online!
Saturday was busy and productive! I baked a pumpkin pie for Todd's dad, gingersnap cookies for a church fellowship this afternoon, and chicken pot pie for dinner! Plus I pulled out the Christmas tree, decorations and quilts and turned the RV into Santa's workshop!
And while the Iron Bowl (Alabama vs. Auburn) game was on, [Roll TIDE!!!] I wrapped the rest of my presents. So now I'm ready for Christmas! LOL! With a few exceptions . . . I'll still have a couple of things to finish and wrap!
My stash report remains unchanged from last week . . .
But my snowman doesn't!
I've still got to stitch his collar and scarf and the holly leaves in his hat, but he's made tremendous progress. I'll continue to 'slow stitch' on him today!
Linking up to Patchwork Times and Kathy's Quilts this morning. Have a blessing-filled first day of Advent!
