The Stockings are Hung...

Sorry I have been absent.  My last day of work for this year was last Thursday. I have been furloughed until January 3.  It is hard not to have the money but I am grateful to have the time off.  I promptly got sick and am currently nursing a cold. Still, I am looking forward to Christmas Day!!!

Some scenes from our Polar Express ride in Sacramento:

Drinking "Hot Chocolate"

Reading our copy of the book on the train--the Conductor signed it!!!

It was such a great experience!!!  I can't wait to do it again next year! 

I also finished my homemade gifts for Noodlebug. Here is a view of his finished alligator scarf:

I liked the pattern so much I may have to make a matching one for myself!

Here are some pillowcases I made for Noodle. I am addicted to sewing pillowcases!!!  I am giving one of the rocket ship cases to my friend Kim's son for Christmas:

Sorry this one is a bit blurry.
I also finished some hooded towels. These are for some little girls I know:

Whew!!!  Hopefully, I have everyone covered.  I didn't quite get all my handmade gifts done. There were just too many great ideas and not enough time.  I'll keep plugging away though. Maybe some will be Valentine's gifts.

Speaking of my friend Kim, I am finally going to meet the Crafty Triathlete herself tomorrow!!! We have been internet friends for a long time now but will finally get to meet in person.  She is an incredibly generous and creative person and I am lucky to know her. Maybe we'll take some photos and post them on our blogs.

I may not get the chance to post again before Christmas so I wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas.  Many blessings to all of you on this very special day.
