Christmas Crafts

We spent some time crafting last week. The kids love to paint ornaments and it's fun for all ages. The Ipod serenaded us with beautiful Christmas music and we drank hot apple cider as we painted. Great fun!

Well, it's 1:30 a.m. Dh has the crepe batter ready our Christmas breakfast. The breakfast table is set with fine china and Christmas decor. The stockings are filled and overflowing, the presents are all wrapped and under the tree, and the little ones are fast asleep and will be awake in no time. I better catch some ZZZZZs.

Hope you all have a Merry Christmas!



I finally attached the hanger to the snowman stocking I made last year and completed a new moose stocking this year for Brown Eyes. It sure looks better after being blocked. I love this pattern and will make another one next year for little caboose. The kit was purchased here.

Now if I can find some time to get to the store and purchase all of the stocking stuffers. Does anyone want to take that job for me for 7 children? lol ACK!!!


Blue Sky

Sorry - no pictures, my battery charger is dead and a new one is in the mail. We've been inundated with rain these past few days. It's been kind of scary considering the flood we dealt with last year. People at the coast will be without power for a few days. I was listening to the news, and at that time, there was no cell phone coverage, no land line phone service, no power, no gas stations open, no grocery stores open, and no way to drive out of the area due to thousands of downed trees blocking the roads (hurricane-force winds = 100+ mph). Talk about isolation!

Vernonia, the town with stranded people mentioned here Stranded People in Vernonia
is within an hour of us.

Don't you wish there was a way to pipe this excess water to SE parts of the States who are suffering drout conditions? Crazy weather!

We are also saddened about this little bit of history that is no more: Largest Sitka Spruce Topples and
Pre-Storm Pics. We just visited the site a few months ago and saw its majestic beauty.
