The days after Christmas are some of my favorites. The decorations are still up but things are calmer and more cozy. I love spending the quiet days at home with the kids playing their new games and watching the new movies they got on dvd. Just being lazy with no where to go and nothing to do. I spent all day yesterday sewing (which has been forever since I've done it) and watching movies with Mark and the kids. I loved it!
The wall hanging above is one that I should have finished long ago for a shop sample, but with being sick and then the holidays it just didn't happen. So the top is done now and I just have to quilt it - probably this weekend.
Probably one of the most fun things this Christmas was having Chloe around. I think she got more gifts from Santa and the kids than anyone! Her FAVORITE toy came from Santa (Emily was Santa for her and spent her own money on the toys) and is 3 chipmonks in a tree trunk that squeek. She loves sqeeky toys, but chews her toys up to death. She goes nuts outside over squirrels, chipmonks and mice. So this was perfect. It was so much fun to hear her sqeeky around, and watching her dig the chipmonks out when we would put them in the tree! So far she has been good to the poor little chipmonks. Only 1/2 an ear on one is gone! Yup, she was one happy dog the last 2 days!
