Best Hopes and Wishes for your Entire Holiday Season

I hope everyone had a Very Merry Christmas, I know we did. It was packed full of love, laughter, mostly peace, and happiness. Now I'm not going to have a list of whats-wes-gots because my Christmas was wonderful for such deeper reasons. I am thankful to every power-that-be that I found some great deals long ago and stocked the closet. It really was Christmas to pull some beautiful much appreciated toys out of that closet. I kept it pretty low key and small scale for the " just in case" of tomorrow.
Now I would like to review my daughter's Calico Critter Toy Store, this is an amazing toy! It was worth whatever 70% off price that I paid for it and then more. It was better and more wonderful than I ever would have guessed. We just couldn't swing the doll house this time around (not enough money, or even supplies for dh to build it). This toy is great. She has already had hours of fun playing with all the little toys the toy shoppe came with. It's a beautiful thing. I would highly recommend it as an add on to your doll house or as a complete starter stand alone. My daughter said it best as "we're going shopping again!"

I promised so post Christmas photos so here they are. Daddy showing off the sweat rag I embroidered for him. He was quite surprised and gave me the look of, you weren't supposed to make anything! Haha, wait till he sees his birthday present on Sunday. This is my sister Ashley with her blue Butterfly Bouquet Quilt. Hopefully she wasn't just pretending to like it. My mom was the recipient of the Red Wintergraphix Star Quilt, boy oh boy am I happy to see that one go.
Life wouldn't be complete without a toddler enjoying a classic now would it? Here we have The Very Hungry Caterpillar, by Eric Carle thanks to our Book Club this one will be appreciated for years to come.

It sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas full of love, which is the most important thing. I loved the photo of Rob looking shocked at his present. LOL Jessica is so cute. I'm glad everyone enjoyed their quilts. You worked so hard on them!

Funny how your mom is wearing red and white. She perfectly matches her quilt!
