Sad that it's over.....

Kyser our 9 & 1/2 yr.old Weimerainer waiting to open some presents on Christmas @ our house!!! ~*~
Jason & Megan Christmas 2010 @ Mom & Dad's house

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas ~ It was a very nice weekend, an extra layer of snow fell Christmas morning :) , but now I always get sad that it is over. Soon, I will take down all the decoartions & lights that I just love looking at & the house will seem so bare, but believe me it is far from it ~ hee,hee. I just love this whole season......the warmth & closeness you feel I wish would last all year long!!!

This Christmas was more quaint than the past, but extra special all the same as Granny has done very very after having her bypass surgery in late Aug., but now my Pap has a hernia ( his 4th ) & will need surgery as well, it is always something to worry about, they are both in a lot of pain, but every holiday spent w/ them is a blessing :)

Then we traveled a few miles down the road to my Grandma's old house ( she has now passed a few years back & my uncle lives there ), we stayed a short time, just not the same anymore, came back had a few drinks & snacks..played games & went to bed waiting for Santa to come.

Got an early gift just like when we were little he left us new jammies!!! It is an ongoing joke we have & this year my sister & I were kidding we wanted new jammies on Christmas eve & there they were left outside!!! My dad, he is a real kid at heart too, love him so much!!! He picked out the brighest ones he could find my Mom said :)

Woke up Christmas morning to open presents w/ my family then had dinner @ Granny & Pap's then headed home around 6:00 to have our Christmas at our home just Jason & I w/ our dog Kyser too of course he got presents!!!

We hope you day was filled w/ lots of special family memories & a couple great gifts too & of course taking the time to " Remember the Reason for the Season "

Blessings till next time ~

It's almost here........

Wow ~

I can't believe it is almost seems like December just flies by ~ I will be spending a good part of the week wrapping gifts, doing a little baking, ( and sampling of course ) , as well as stitching up a couple special little gifts as I always do for a few loved ones :)

On saturday night, we decided to have a "date night" granted there are just the 2 of us & our weimer Kyser, so we go out quite often, but we wanted to go somewhere a little different for dinner & further away so we called & made reservations & the little waitress set us up in our own private dining room!!! It was so sweet, she didn't even know how to light an oil lamp, but she did her best, & it was so nice after the smoke cleared,( hee~hee ) I have included a pic of their "famous" gob cake sundae & it was good......wish I had another bite this morning!!

Enjoy the day.....

"Merry Winter" & believe me it has arrived in Pittsburgh.....

This one is currently listed on Etsy ~

Listed on Ebay ~ Seller Id ~ stitchinthedayaway......Special orders also available.......

Well ~ This is what I have been working on how they turned out :) I just loveJenny @ Country Rustic Primitives patterns....sometimes I feel like buying them all, but I have to budget myself :( I will be back though & soon.....hee,hee

One is stitched on hardanger & the other is aida cloth & each has its own "personality if you will ~ It has been lightly snowing & COLD here for the past week or so, so these little guys feel totally appropriate!!!

Will be making one for my home for sure after the Christmas "rush" slows down a bit ~ If you are interested feel free to contact me ~*~

Have a great night & stay warm......We've got the woodburner going full blast :)
