Hooray - I'm finished!

The last of the Winter stoneware is out of the attic and into the kitchen and dining room. The babies have come out of the attic. They were really happy to be released from the big tubs - it was hard to breathe in there because the air was so stale. None of these babies have seen the light of day for years and years. Now that I have grandkids I think it's time to make some new seasonally appropriate outfits for the Cabbage Patch kids - I must have at least 20 different clothing patterns in my filing cabinet!

Now tomorrow I can focus on the cinnamon rolls. And maybe drag all the wrapping paper out of the attic and get busy on gifts? I hope I can use all of it - I'm getting very tired of the same paper year after year. When all the kids want is books, CD's, video games, DVD's and gift cards, one doesn't go through wrapping paper very quickly. I'd forgotten how much fun it is to shop for toddlers - I know I overbought and will have to put a few things away for birthdays. And most everything is bigger than anything I've wrapped for years - and will use lots and lots of paper LOL!

Well, it's snowing again - we're supposed to get 2-4 more inches by tomorrow morning, then snow showers Monday and Tuesday. It's not supposed to warm up until Christmas Eve. I'll be thrilled if the roads are clear but the rest of the ground and the trees are still covered. This is my 62nd Christmas, and I've never had a white one yet. But I always hope . . . .

I still have my Cabbage Patch kid from the 80's. Flora Dana is her name! She looks very similar to yours.

I love your Country Threads Santa wallhanging. I've always wanted to make that one! Yours is great.

We're still having lots and lots of snow here. Maybe we'll have a white Christmas? As long as it's not an 'under-water' Christmas, I'll be happy. Hope yours is happy!

This is my 37th Christmas, and the only white ones have been in other areas--I've lived in either western Oregon (growing up) or western Washington (adult life) all my life. My Colorado-born husband is still amused by what I think of as "a lot" of snow.

Cute kids! Red outfits would be soo cute. We've lived in snow country for the past 14 years and this is our first ever white Christmas. As long as I no longer have to go out in the white stuff every morning I love it. Retirement is great. Let it snow...
