Merry Christmas and SG Advent Day 25.....

Today is the final day of our SG Advent Exchange! I opened up my last package and it contained 3 charts from my Wish List!!  I received JN Snowflower, The Drawn Thread Christmas Quartet, and With Thy Needle and Thread Needleworker's Sampler!  YEAHHH!!!!!  Lynne has blessed me with many wonderful gifts each day of this Advent Season.  I'm very easy going as I love each and every gift because someone took the time to pick it out to send/give to me.

I am having a WONDERFUL day spending it with my family all together.  Being a military family, we went home at Thanksgiving and celebrated that holiday with family.  We weren't able to go home for Christmas though.  That's the tough and sad part.....being away from family but they are always close in my heart.  We did call each other and talk this morning!

However, we brought our gifts from family back at Thanksgiving and ever since then, I've been stalking the mailbox receiving gifts from my stitching friends!!!  I hope to show those gifts here over the next few days as I took pictures of all my wonderful gifts!!! 

We had our big dinner at lunch today and have been spending the day watching Christmas movies with the kids!!!  I did stitch a little while but had to lay down to rest some as I had to get up early this morning.  Friends of ours were flying out and dear hubby drove them to the airport!  Me....I had to find the battery charger for the camera as I couldn't remember last night!  But....I found it. 

I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas.  Jesus is the Reason for the Season and every day of the year!

Blessings to you and your family!


  1. Merry Christmas to you, too, Brenda. Sounds like a fun couple of months you have had with your family celebrating the good times to me - I love the idea of Thanksgiving!

  2. It sounds like you had a wonderful day yesterday! I know you will be enjoying the rest of your daughter's vacation before she has to return to school.

    Have a wonderful weekend!
