153 sleeps until ... You know!

I know it's crazy! I used to have all my gifts ready by now. Yes, I was the person you did not like. Who is happy and relaxed during the holidays? Me that's who.

I was hoping to have a small Christmas in July tutorial but alas My sweet Hubby was in the hospital for a few days and things are running behind here at home. I will instead share photos with you.

One to keep and one to give. I just love Mary Engelbreit. What have you made for Christmas 2009?

Speaking of giving a gift. My birthday is soon, so stay tuned for a giveaway from Me to one of You.

Fun in the Sun...

We had a great weekend. On Saturday My DS's BFF (AKA My Son's hero) spent the day with us. We went out for pizza at a great local place, then to the arcade and off to our place for water gun wars. We sent the poor kid home soaking wet with two towels to protect his Mama's mobile.
On Sunday we went on a boat cruise around Lake Arthur and then fishing. My little one caught four fish and I caught two. We kept the Hubby busy baiting the hooks and taking the fish off for us. I thought that was nice of him. Oh yea and I caught a really nice sized tree.

Unfortunately, I could not reel it in. Apparently, I am not the only person to attempt this as there are many bobbers and lines decorating this Arbor.

Not much stitching going on. I did do some more unstitching and some red work.
