Time to try and catch up.... well, maybe

Wish me luck that this will look nice and not all jumbled when I press "publish post"

And then we come to Christmas......We had a very beautiful and white Christmas. Christmas Eve we left to go to mass and the roads were clear even after it snowed all day. When we came out of church, the roads were snow covered and slippery and it continued to snow. My husband had to drive very slowly home. The main roads were clear in the morning so we were able to go to my daughters to celebrate Christmas. Dinner was GREAT and we went out with our grandkids, Ryan and Raven, to build a snowman and for snowball fight. Needless to say, they wore us out. lol Raven turned 14 years on the 26th, so we went out to eat at TGIF, which was her choice. I can't believe how my grandkids have grown. It seems like yesterday they were running around in diapers. lol
They are GREAT kids and we are quite proud of them. I hope you all had a Wonderful Christmas. Next for the New Year 2011. What will it bring?
Here are three bracelets I made. Two are for cancer awareness and will be given away. I still have TONS to learn, but hopefully I won't go too"wild" with this new craft. If it counts, I always buy on sale:-) lol It still adds up fast.....During this time, before Christmas, I made a couple of fleece blankets. My daughter and I had found a cupcake fleece pattern and just had to have a blanket made from that fleece. Now we will probably crave cupcakes everytime we use it. I also finished two shawls. Worked on a quilt, which I hope to finish in the next couple of days. Raven and her friend came and made some cookies. I worked quite a bit and time flew. I also took up a "Dangerous" new craft I tell people. Why? It can be very expensive. Here are a few I have made. I did make a necklace for my dear graddaughter, but I didn't take a picture of it before I gave it to her.After Thanksgiving, it was time to get ready for Advent. This is my wreath that I made. When I saw the big purple flowers from Michaels, I just couldn't resist. I hope everyone had a very nice Thanksgiving. Ours was really nice. My daughter and son-in-law made an early lunch since I had to go to work. Gobble, gobble:)
