Happy New Year!!!!!

Happy New Year to everyone!!! Hope everyone had a wonderful and safe New Year. Emma came over and spent New Year's eve with us so that was the extent of our celebrating.  She did ring in the New Year by staying up past midnight. 

Nick left on New Year's day to head back to Mexico where he is working with an organic farming co-op in Juluchuca.  He moved into an apartment in the city of Zihuatenajo before coming home for Christmas and was ready to get back there and get settled in before Jeff and I go down there to visit next week.

We had a nice Christmas with family and friends.  We celebrated Christmas Eve at my Mom's home. Christmas Day, Ashlee, Emma and Dominic came over and opened presents. Emma was so much fun this Christmas. She liked opening presents and would stop and play with each one. It took awhile for her to get them all opened...lol

Christmas quilt - fits a king-size bed
 Several years ago, I won a Christmas quilt top from a local quilt store in Oklahoma City during a shop hop. Well this past summer, I finally bought the backing for it and Danna (my sister-in-law) and I put it on the quilting machine so I could start quilting it. Well, I never did get time to get it started, but Danna would go to the studio and work on it. So the week before Christmas Danna comes by one evening and she hands me the quilt. It is beautiful!!!!!! She did so much more quilting on it than I would have done. I am one lucky gal to have such a wonderful sister-in-law in my life.
 Well that's my Christmas holidays this year. Enjoyed time spent with Nick, Ashlee, Emma, Dominic and Jeff and time spent with my Mom and my brothers and their families that live here.

Getting ready for tax season, but first will be taking a trip to Mexico for a couple of weeks. I hope to do some posts on my blog while I'm there. So check back when you can.

Be sure and check out our etsy shoppe..prairiemoonprimitve. Ginger lists new stuff all the time. I'm working on some things and hope to list them in the next day or two.

Have a wonderful week and always wear a smile.
