Merry Christmas to All

Merry Christmas to you and your family. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year too. I have to say that I am sorta sad that Christmas is here already. We lost a week with Thanksgiving being so late this year. I feel like I just put up my decorations and for some reason, am even sad about taking them down this year. My kids are on count down as I type. They are going to my brothers for a overnight and I have a few more things to wrap up and some baking to get done. I think I am just as excited as the kids are... I can't wait to see their faces when they see what Santa has brought them!
Merry Christmas!

Down Town

We all went downtown last weekend to see the Sound of Music. My good friends daughter was Marta in the play. It was very fun, and the first time ever my girls have seen a play downtown.

Downtown Cincinnati is so magical this time of year.. All the lights and decorations. Everyone is happy and in a great mood and having a ton of fun..

We stopped at the ice skating rink on the way back to the car.. It was so pretty.

I also put some pictues of my girls all "decked" out and looking pretty for the play. We had a wonderful time.. and are ready for the bid day for sure!

My first quilt.......

Well I have finally started my first ever quilt.. I like how it has turned out so far... let's hope I can get the back on it and some binding as well.

It is a gift for my sweet niece who is turning 16.. I can't believe Oliva will be 16 on Christmas Eve.. I was there the night she came into this world and what a gift she is.

I figured for your sweet sixteen, something special you can keep would be nice. I hope she feels this way too.
