Happy Holidays

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Trust everyone enjoyed the holidays and got to spend some quality time with family.
 Perhaps got those last minute gifts finished up and under the tree just in time? 
 I know I had one last minute gift.

Right before we had our family Christmas we made a quick trip to Florida for a graduation ceremony. 

Our oldest, Jenny graduated from University of West Florida in December.
  She graduated with a degree in Biology and will begin her Masters program this spring. Jenny will continue as a graduate assistant with the volleyball team.  

The letter "J" was the Christmas letter this year. 
 Mom's table looked stunning as usual.
"Joy" was the centerpiece and added a beautiful sentiment to the dinner table.

As you can see we all had a box of "Jello" at our place along with some "juniper" and "jingle" bells.

Mom found this wonderful "jean jumper" at Goodwill.  She was extremely proud of herself. 
I believe the scarecrow will be wearing it when the snow is gone!

I can't remember how much "jangle" was in the "jar" but I know that I didn't win the amount.  

As you can see we have a pretty good time with the alphabet. 
 Next year is the letter "K". 
 I think it will be more of a challenge.

I had mom's name and I made her a "jigsaw" puzzle ball out of "jet" black velvet.  I finished the day before but it looked awesome.  I'll try and get a picture later.

Enjoy your families and happy hooking everyone!

Memories in the Making

Many of you have watched my children grow up so I wanted to share these with you.

Sam and Joe after the all state concert. Sam sang in the chorus and Joe played the bass trombone in the orchestra.

We were lucky enough to spend the Thanksgiving holiday in Orange Beach, Alabama.
We all needed time to "forget" life for a few days and just be a family.

I used to think I had a "normal" family until I started looking at these photos.  
Seems they aren't "normal" after all! ;)

Natalie's cheer squad is competing for the first time in February.
She thought she could teach her "strong" brothers how to do the lifts so she could practice.
Turns out it wasn't as easy as they thought.

We had some good laughs and it was wonderful to be together as a family!

Thanks, for letting me share.

Happy Hooking!

And the winner is.....................

Thank you to all who shopped our Customer Appreciation sale.  If you stopped by or read the email you will know that we had a couple of give-aways.

I should have taken a picture of the jar that contained the noodles.  The winner of the noodles and mat to go with it was Elsie Ulland.

Give-away #2 was a skillet full of 1/16's and a soy candle. Skillet was a little too heavy to ship. :)

The winner of that was Cindy DeBlick!

Prizes have already been shipped and I must say the winners were thrilled.

Happy Hooking!
