What I Have Been Up To?

It has been so long since I have posted. I cannot believe it. I have not used my computer at home in all this time. I have just been busy doing stuff.

I did win a giveaway over at Crafty Stitchers and received this cute little Angel ornie. She is proudly hanging on my tree now. She is adorable. Thank you ladies!!


Alice celebrated her eighth birthday. We all made her cake and frosted it. I was able to get a funny picture of her and one of her presents. She is so silly. I really think she is going to be a comedian when she grows up, maybe she will make enough money to take care of her mom and dad when we are old, I mean older.


I too the kids on a trip this past weekend to Southern Maryland. My husband had to work so he could not go, usually it is the other way around. My father-in-law had his Christmas get together on Saturday. We had a lot of fun.

On the drive I had to stop at a 7-11. We don’t have 7-11’s here and I missed them. As you can see I did not get a good photo, it was pretty busy and I was trying not to get the people in the store for fear they might get angry with me.


The kids got to meet their newest uncle, Uncle CJ. My mother-in-law works for a shelter who rescues abused/kill list dogs. She just had to have CJ, they were  not sure how he was going to react to all the people, he was abused pretty badly. But he was such a good boy and playful. We are surely glad Grandma brought him to her home!  We took him for a walk, luckily it was Gordon’s turn when it was time to pick up the poo.


My father-in-law and his wife live in the area of Solomon's Island. It is so pretty there. Makes me want to live on the water. We walked down their pier and I laid on the dock. It was so peaceful. Cold, but peaceful!!


We had a great time with the family and the kids got loads of great presents.  I decided not to post pictures since I didn’t ask for permission to put everyone on here. But I had to post a picture of the snowmen couple I won at the Secret Santa Swap. Aren’t they fantastic!!!


I hope to catch up on all my blog reading sometime this week. I miss reading what all my blog pals are up to. Life had me all caught up for a bit. Have a great “hump” day and don’t forget to find a little stitching time!!

I do a lot of communicating by email so I can't imagine going days without the computer..I can check it on my phone but I can't answer too well..not used to the tiny keys and one finger typing.
Cute Dog...I think that is great that she does that...I'm sure he'll be adopted, he's so cute.
We used to have 7-11...I haven't seen one called that in a long they are pantries..
