Christmas will be here in 5 days, and T turns the big 13! I think he is pretty excited about it. I know he is looking forward to his birthday party on New Years Eve. We finally got our tree and put it up. R did a great job of picking one out this year, and the smell of it permeates the entire house! Here is T decorating the tree:
We also made some cookies last week, and J seemed to think he could shoot me with the cookie press because I was taking his picture:
My shopping is done and all that I have to do is wrap gifts. Hopefully that will be done by Saturday morning since we are going to Quaker City on Saturday. Then Christmas with my family is on Sunday evening. I do have to work Christmas Eve, which stinks, but it should be slow and quiet. Maybe I can come home early.
After Christmas, back to quilting. I am looking for a good price on jelly rolls to make some quilts with. I also want to finish my block of the month quilts and some other projects.
I started Pomegranate Soup by Marsha Mehran tonight after I finished the Emperors Children by Claire Messud last night. The Emperors Childrens just didn't do much for me. It was not a great book in my opinion. I think she could have said what she did in about half the pages.
