This and That and a PIF Reveal...







Prior to Christmas I was finishing up some table topper gifts. With this one I used my "Edge Guide" for the first time. I like it!! 8-)

Boys will be boys at Christmas! I think DS has found the little brother he never had in DD2's boyfriend, MrRose. You are never too old for Lego, or Sock'em Bop'em blowup punchers...







There is always time to play that new game you got for Christmas... RISK...
And you are never too old for building a Gingerbread House... even though you may build it with more tools... Besides the drill, note the glue-gun to the right... and apparently the tree belongs on the roof, and one gingerbread man needs to dangle from it... Note the sky-light window? lol

MrRose is one that is always fidgety and needs to be busy, so I think buying the gingerbread house kit was a good idea... They spent an hour and a half building it! 8-)

It snowed and blowed all of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day... Made for rotten driving conditions, but we managed... only got stuck once... 8-)
Now for the PIF reveal!!!
This is the table topper I made for Lurline.
I had fun making it for her... 8-)
Christmas Day morning...
Our fur-girls usually sleep in their kennels at night, but when we have been out all evening where they've already been in their kennels, we often let them sleep with us... Here they are sandwiching DH... Makes it hard to move around... 8-)
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your families!
I did!

I just had to laugh when I saw the drill. Can totally relate about boys being boys. Looks like it was a great Christmas.

That Gingerbread House sure was built to last - Enjoy.
Came from JuliesPP that quilt hanging is just gorgeous and so is Lurlines table runner. Have enjoyed having a look around your blog - lots of fun and inspiration there. Have a Happy New Year with lots of time for creativity.

Myra, I am back into the blogging world. Glad you had a great holiday. We still haven't had ours. Plan to on New Year's. Sure was a nasty blizzard on Christmas. I love the table runner you made for Lurline. It is beautiful. I also love the last picture with your girls' eyes glowing. LOL. Have a great day. Winona

Love the photo of the girls. As for the biys, well they may grow up in physical age but men will always be boys in mental age

Love and hugs GIna xxx
