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 :)
