One More Week...

and Nick will be home for Christmas.  Looking forward to seeing him and spending time with family and friends.

 Don't you just love this snowman pillow?  Joanne was doing a giveaway on her blog and I was one of the lucky winners. She hooked it on a piece of wool and it is simply wonderful. I love it!!!!!  Thank you so much, Joanne. Tell the boys thank you too!!!

I have been hooking on Emma's rug that I started in June and am almost finished.  I will post a picture in a day or two. This is the pattern that Frank Bielec drew from a picture I had of Emma at Tyler Rug Camp in May.  I was supposed to have it finished by her first birthday (July 13) but it didn't happen. I think because it is "pink". So watch for it in the next post.

Jeff and I went to a Christmas celebration he read about in the paper at Perkins, OK last Thursday evening. It is a small town and I think everyone was there to celebrate. They served frito chili pie, homemade desserts and hot cocoa.  It was at the Oklahoma Territorial Plaza.  Several old buildings that had been moved there and restored were open to walk thru. Santa arrived on the local fire truck and kids were lined up waiting to tell him what they wanted for Christmas. We even took a hayride through a nearby neighborhood.  It was a nice evening trip!!
Ashlee had pictures of Emma made with angel wings.  Emma wasn't too impressed with them at first, but the photographer did get some good shots.

Well, I hope to get a Christmas tree this weekend and get some decorating done. Started my Christmas shopping and hope to do a little bit more this weekend, too.  Hope to get some baking done too.

A cold front came thru this evening and I hope it stays cold for awhile. I like the cold weather especially during Christmas time. 

Have a great weekend and enjoy time with family and friends.
