Long Weekend

We'll even though it was a long weekend there wasn't a whole lot of sewing going on.  We had family and friends in town for Thanksgiving and we had a blast!  The holiday weekend was filled with great company, lots of laughs, a local hangout in the kitchen and lots and lots of food and pie!  I managed to remember to take one picture, and ya, it turned out blurry.  What ya gonna do?

Thanks again to family and friends who came to spend the holiday with us.  We had such a great time!

After our company departed we turned to the next holiday tradition.  So once again, no sewing, but we did manage to put up the trees :)  Yes, that is trees as in plural.   I have 2 trees, I love Christmas :)

The kids call this Mom's tree and they are pretty much spot on.  I put on the lights and ribbons and they put on the ornaments.  Then when they leave the room I redo the ornaments and spread out the clusters :)  This is the first year I have done the ribbon going down the tree instead of around and I love it.  I know, I am a few years behind on this trend but I still love it!

This is the kids tree.  I let them put on the ornaments and then I leave them where they put them.  Ya, this is so hard for me, especially since this year they decided it would be fun to group similar ornaments.  But it is theirs, and they reminded me every time I tried to give "helpful" hints that this was their tree and I couldn't tell them how to do it.  The two kiddos in front are my two youngest, as soon as they saw I was taking a picture of "their" tree they just had to jump in :)

So now, (after a mountain of laundry and a lunch appointment) I am hoping to get back to my sewing room :)
Pin It!


  1. both trees are lovely! and looks like a great feast!!

  2. That's a great idea having two trees. I might need to implement that just for hubby and I! ha ha!

  3. Love the tree - and the kids. :) blessings, marlene

  4. We only have one tree right now, and it looks more like your kids' tree. But when we finish with our basement, there will be two trees. "My" tree will be upstairs in the front window, and "Their" tree will be in the basement, with all the presents :-) (At least, that's our current plan!)

    Both of your trees are lovely!

  5. I love both of your Christmas trees! I the angel on top and the ribbon going down the tree (which doesn't goo out of style).

    I must say that the kids did a good job on their tree. My Little One also has his "own" tree which he decorated. All of the ornaments are hung on the bottom!


  6. Congratulations on your banner "win" at Stash Manicure! How exciting - and well deserved I might add. :) blessings, marlene

  7. Need to keep testing my blog. Not working as I want it to yet. Thx for the theme. Maybe this will get mine to look better.
