Happy Holidays

We had a very nice Christmas and I hope you did too.

I think most everyone here enjoyed the day. It is so much fun with the grandkids. They are growing up much too fast. Only one seemed a little disappointed with their presents.

This year we got some really good pictures. Santa brought Chloe a camera for Christmas. She took some really good ones.

This is the oldest son Tony's family.

Tony, Cindy, Haylie, Lyndsey, Chloe, Katie, Amy and Karly

I can't seem to post any more pictures so I guess I will do some a little at a time.

More tomorrow!!

Another Birthday

We just celabrated Isaac's 9th birthday. Grandpa made him his favorite. An apple pie!!

We have been so busy getting ready for Christmas. We spent one day this week going to Chicago to the American Girl store. Amy wanted Santa to bring her the bitty twins. I guess they were sold out online. I figured they had them in the store. Couldn't get the blondes but did find the brunettes. When her Mom asked Amy if Santa could not bring the twins and brought another doll instead what would she do. Amy said she just would not play with it. As stubborn as she is she probably wouldn't. Santa is going to come through though.

Today Jonathan had a wrestling match. He got beat but it was a pretty even match. He put a scare in me though because he started having trouble breathing. I thought he got hurt. Come to find out he had an allergy attach. They cleaned the mats before his match and he is allergic to chlorine. It threw him off his game. It has been a frustrating year for him but he isn't doing all that bad. He is 15-2. That is not bad for a freshman.

Isaac wanted an apple pie and Jonathan wanted a peanut butter pie. Since Jonathan has 2 weeks till his next match and will have a 2 pound extra allowance Grandpa made him a peanut butter pie too.

Jonathan had been talking about his Grandpa's pie to his wrestling buddy Will. Some we are taking 2 pies to church tomorrow for him.

I have been sewing some things but have to wait to show pictures. I sure hope they like what I have made. I can't believe it is less than a week away.

Quilts in the Mail

I haven't posted for awhile. But I have been busy. But I will tell you about that later.

My swap on came to an end and I thought one of my gals wasn't going to get her quilt. I had made an extra of my pumpkin quilt so I sent it to Sandy. Her swap partner came through after all so Sandy had an extra of her quilt too. She mailed it to me. I was very lucky this last round. She did a good job and I really liked it. Thanks again Sandy!! Oops not the best picture.

Monday my geisha girl came in the mail. Margaret had a super LA deal so I sent her my quilt. She did a really good job. I just love it. She had really nice things to say about it here. Made me feel pretty good. I would highly recommend her to quilt your quilts.

Thanksgiving was wonderful. We got to go to our oldest son's house. It felt so good not to have to cook and clean. DH did bake 2 apple and 1 peanut butter, and 1 pumpkin pie. They were very good. His crust is so thin and flakey. The grandkids just love the apple and peanut butter.

Friday and Saturday we went to Jonathan's wrestling meet. There were 10 teams there so he was to wrestle 5 times Friday and 4 times Saturday. We won all 5 matches Friday. Saturday morning he woke up with diarrhea. Took some amodium after weight in. He thought he was doing OK (but he wasn't) so he went and won 2 times before he called it quits because he was too sick. I don't see how he could do it.

He did very well for his first meet of the year. 7-0 is great for a freshman. Jonathan said that one of the guys he beat on Saturday was ranked 12th in the state. That sure pumped him up.

It was a long and tiring couple of days. I did work on my Dear Jane blocks during the breaks.

Other good news is I got my car back today. It took them a month to fix it. It seems just like new but I haven't driven it much. Hopefully it will be right.

BTW check out my new sidebar. I posted a give-away. There are so many to blog about that I thought this would be easier. If you like doll quilts you will love this one!!
