What has been happening and what I have been up to. With Christmas so close and being so busy doing so many things to have everything ready for the holidays, I have not had time for anything else but getting ready for the holidays. But thank goodness I can now relax since I have finished with outside and inside decorations, packing all the gifts to put under the tree, sending out Christmas cards, grocery shopping since it is my turn to do the cooking and baking, so now I am ready for Christmas.

I had to do alot myself since my husband went out of the country for 10 days (not very nice of him) and
left me to do alot on my own. So I have not had any time to relax or even do some stitching and that is sad :( but I do have my new releases for Feb. 2011 framed, and that is good.

It has been really cold and windy down here and kind of kept me inside for a couple of days, but lucky me I came down with a bad cold which left me with no energy but to stay in bed. Until today I had a little time to post something and let you all now what I have been up to and what is going on in my life.  Thank goodness my husband came home last night because I was ready to cry, yes cry out of desperation since with all the days of strong winds my phone went dead, the alarm system went crazy in the house scarring me to death and having to deal with everything else, I was ready to run out of the house. Thank goodness my son-in-law took care of the problems, thank goodness for son-in-laws when husbands are
not available.

Hope everybody is ready for Christmas, especially those with small children how are so anxious for that special day when they can open all those presents and see their big and happy smiles on their faces.

I posted these pictures of two of my grandchildren that I took pictures of when they came over for holloween and loaded up on lots of candy and seeing them have a great time and their big smiles on their happy faces.

Many blessings to all of you, Vilma

Love the photos of the grandkids, they're so cute. I bet they were totally wired with all of that candy.
Sorry to hear that you've been under the weather and hope you feel better soon.

Merry Christmas to you and your family.

I love your photos Vilma. That certainly looks like enough lollipops for the little giraffe. : )) You poor dear. I hope you are over that nasty cold. I just had to spend 7 weeks alone in our very VERY big house and at night I locked myself into the main bedroom or I could not fall asleep. Being insecure at night makes my insomnia worse so I was often up till 4am. I absolutely ADORE your stitching chair. No wonder you come up with such amazing designs. Just looking at you chair I feel inspired. : )
I hope you have a very blessed Christmas with your family.
