We had a great Christmas Day. We started off by all of us having breakfast together.
Then we opened gifts.
After a bit Craig and Becca went to her grandma's house. Kelsey and Ismael hung around playing games for awhile. Then they left to go to his house.
About that time, Larry went to take a nap and I watched part of Eat, Pray, Love. Silly me. I was trying to read blogs and watch TV at the same time--you all know how that goes--so I had to start it over because I realized I wasn't sure what was going on. Then I got tired of sitting still before it was over so I got up to start cooking supper. I never did finish the movie. I'll probably get back to it tomorrow. When that movie first came out, I wanted to see it but never did. I've heard mixed reviews about it. I guess before I can really judge the movie, I need to watch it paying close attention and actually finish the movie. lol
I have such a large family (4 brothers & 3 sisters) that we do not get each other Christmas gifts. We used to draw names but don't do that any longer. But being the crafty family we are, a few of us generally make things for each other.
This year, I received a large beaded Rosary, some wooden ornaments, and a wooden candle holder. One of my brothers has a wood turning lathe and does beautiful work.
This is the candlestick he made all of us this year. It is black with lime green in the middle.
A few days ago, I saw an advertisement for hooded scarves. I purchased a knitted one years ago and use it every winter when I have recess duty at school. So I decided to make one for my mom and sisters.
Now, I need to sit down today and make me one. This fleece matches the new coat Kelsey gave me. I have a great snowman embroidery pattern from Embroidery Library. CJ from Created by CJ suggested this site for embroidery patterns. It is great. Who can beat $1 designs?
Larry is working today. Kelsey is working half the day. Craig and Becca will be in an out. I think the kids and I are getting together to eat left-overs tonight. But, other than warming supper, it's going to be a day of napping, sewing, and doing whatever.
Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.
