Christmas is coming!

Oh I am getting so excited, Christmas is just around the corner. The kids are all very happy and also extremely excited.

I have some finishes to share with you. I completed a stick horse for one of the cutest little customers ever at The Rusty Bucket. I hope she loves him as much as I do.

I also finished up a couple pillows and a embroidered stocking.

Tonight we decorated the inside of the house for Christmas. I love the decorations but for some reason I always feel like it is so cluttered. Our decorations are such a mixture of styles because there are some the kids have bought for me that I just have to put out.

The kids were pretty much in charge of the tree. They did an awesome job this year. Each year they get a little bit better. It use to be we would have to go back when they weren’t around and lighten up the branches. They would hang everything from just a few branches, all around the bottom of the tree. This year it looks like the only “fixing” that needs to be done is our dog angel at the top of the tree.

Louise has already found her favorite spot. Every time I go downstairs and she is down there she is curled up under the tree.

My husband is an awesome cook and he did a fantastic job yesterday for Thanksgiving. I am one of those people who can mix all her food together and eat it at once. And Thanksgiving is the best time for me to do that. So for dinner tonight I had left overs. Turkey, ham, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, gravy, stuffing and topped with a little cranberry sauce – yeah gross but I love it!

I am working on a couple dolls tonight, hoping to finish them up and take them with me to work at The Rusty Bucket tomorrow. Remember it is Small Business Saturday tomorrow so if you can, go out and help a small business near you!

I better get busy so I can get some sleep. I hope you had an awesome week, a blessed Thanksgiving and have a super weekend. Don’t forget to find a little stitching time!
