Playing Catch-up.....With Pictures

We had our family portraits taken recently and I just got the disk back today.  So I ordered Christmas cards (they will be late going out if you are expecting one!) and some prints.  Will go back later and order more for grandparents and such.  The pictures are great!  My children are very photogenic :) 

Gregory Robert - age 11

Leland David - age 14

Norman Matthew - age 4

Abigail Caroline - age 19 months

That's a yawn.....taking pictures is HARD work!

Mommy's little girl.

The last 3 weeks or so have been VERY hectic.  I did some sewing for a friend (WITH my friend Shanna) - a 81x81inch comforter and curtains.  I still need to do matching pillowcases but that will wait until after Christmas.  I've been knitting like a crazy woman.  Hats for all the kids (Abby is wearing hers in some of the pictures above) and for myself.  A few gifts :)  And sewing some gifts (can't divulge what yet but I will after Christmas - easy peasy and soooo cute!).  I have my sewing room set up the way I think I want it.  We will see.  It was insane how much fabric and yarn I have.  I solemnly swear that I will try not to buy anymore yarn or fabric until I use some of what I have......unless I go to MBT....then I can't promise anything.  I had better get back to knitting and sewing :)

I've been baking like a crazy kid.  The 3 youngest kids helped me make sugar cookies on Monday.  There were so many sprinkles on the kitchen floor that it was like walking on marbles.  We took or will be taking cookie plates to our neighbors....some of them are difficult to catch at home. 

The Christmas spirit is alive and well here :)  I love that I am able to enjoy it with my little family while we remember the real reason for the season.  All 4 children took part in our little church's Christmas poduction.  I am hoping that someone took pictures that I can get my hands on.  Lee was Joseph, Greg was a wise man, Bear was a sheep and Abby was a little angle.  After the play Lee and Greg joined some friends in whistling We Wish You a Merry Christmas and playing a few songs with the bells.  We are Christmas carolling on Wednesday night.  I love to go Christmas carolling.  I can't wait!!!!!!!

I hope that all of you are enjoying the wonderful time of year that is Christmas.  Remember our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and cherish the time that you can spend with your family.  Hugs to all my friends!!!!!!!
