Christmas Wrap Up

I hope you all had an enjoyable Christmas.  We had a great time, but up until the last couple of days I've felt like I was on the Christmas voyage of the Titanic.  And I hit the iceberg when I got sick.  It was nothing serious just sinus ache, sore throat, cold symptoms and feeling tired.  The being tired part was what slowed everything down.  I went outside long enough to take the snow photos that were in the last post and came right back in.

The first four photos were taken 48 hours before Christmas.  I have three trees up, and the main family room tree only had 3 decorations on it until Christmas morning.  This is our sentimental tree...ornaments made by loved ones and friends that are no longer here so maybe that's why this one was saved for last.  Nice memories but sad to work on at the same time.

Over half of the presents weren't wrapped.


One of many gifts that didn't get finished.
My family helped which I'm thankful for.  I stood in the kitchen Christmas Eve and said, "I wonder what Martha Stewart is doing tonight."

Next year I'm going to be better organized.  I'm trying to come up with some sort of plan.  Christmas comes December 25th every single year, and next year I'll be ready.

Here is a tree that did get finished.

I spent a lot of time decorating and doing crafty things like this knitting needle ornament Christmas tree.     I really enjoy this part of Christmas.

I loved putting this Pepsi crate Christmas centerpiece together.

And the tomato cage Christmas tree was a fun project to put together.

My wonderful husband cooked our Christmas turkey on the grill.  This was the first time we have tried this, and it turned out pretty good.   Last year for Christmas dinner I cooked a big pan of lasagna and a big pan of chicken alfredo along with garlic bread, salad and pie for dessert.  That was easy and really cut down on time spent in the kitchen on Christmas Day.  What do you have for Christmas Dinner?

Here is one of my early Christmas presents.  I have heard that The Fabric of Society by Annette Gero is going to be out of print soon, so I ordered my copy.  There are beautiful quilts along with patterns in this book.

I did get some other quilty/crafty things for Christmas.  As soon as I take photos, I'll post them.

Oh....and if you are one of those super organized people that has everything done weeks before Christmas, I'd love to know your secret!

Thanks for visiting!
