2 More days Til Christmas!


Are you ready for the big day?? I am almost ready we have about 20 coming here so it will be pretty wild. I thought I would show you some of my decorations and what I have been up too.

When I was taking pictures of trees, I forgot to take a picture of our main tree, it is the traditional 6 foot tree with a collection of ornaments for our entire lives - and then we have the 3 foot Cubs trees, with all Cubs oraments.

This is my Quilting Theme Tree, it is in the Creation Station and I just love looking at it. I have white lights and it is really bright. I leave this one up the longest, just because I like to look at the ornaments a bit longer.

This is my newest tree - I have been collecting cute Gingerbread Ornaments for the past few years, always threatening to have an entire tree of gingerbread, well this summer I was lucky to find this nice tree for $5 at a garage sale and I thought PERFECT for my gingerbreads! This is in the dining room. I need to make a tree skirt for it. Maybe today. I only have 6 or 7 things that need to be done today. So I am hoping I can get it accomplished.

My Niece needed a little bib for her daughters 1st Christmas and she is going to wear a penguin outfit, so here is the bib. I hope she likes it.

And of course I have been baking cookies, here is the first round, and these were all mailed out. So today I am making 3 batches of cookies for some of my friends in town and for the family party.

Here is another tray. I just love to frost and decorate them.

I hope your holiday plans are going smoothly. And that you have a happy holiday!
Happy Stitches!
