Tuesday, December 15

Hello All!!!

Hope all is well out there! Things are going well here and I think we are almost time adjusted now (although seems like Brenna is starting on a cold today - yuck!).

My mom and Brenna decorated the Christmas tree here yesterday - Brenna had lots of fun with decorating - we used all the new felt ornaments that we made since Brenna and I came back. Now, we all just need to figure out how to guard the tree against the crazy cat Louie here - he is into everything (he sure fits the description of curiosity killed the cat - wonder how many lives he has already used up??). Louie is not a great cat with all my projects - he keeps trying to lay all over my new fabric and coats here. I am learning quickly to put all my stuff behind closed doors that I don't want him in!

My skirts are all almost done (well the 3 that we started, lol!) except for ironing and some hand sewing on the inside :-) Thanks for all your wonderful help mom - your the best!! I will have to share some pictures after we get back to Germany - a new fashion show of mom attire :-)

We went out today to pick up some of Brenna's Christmas gifts that she made - only half were done, but at least they were the ones we needed for leaving tomorrow :-) I'm not doing very well getting my Christmas cards mailed out - please don't be offended when I just hand them out!

Brenna fell in love with a pair of pink jelly shoes today (they were on sale for a $1 at Wal-Mart) - she put them on as soon as we came in the house today and hasn't taken them off! I think they may be a new favorite shoe for the house (at least for the winter, lol). I thought maybe I could leave them here for next summer, but I think she will probably discover pretty quickly if I try to leave them behind.

Well, I need to work on some more Christmas gifts! I have been slacking there (and working on my own projects too much).

Take Care!

Can't wait to see all of your projects and hope I can say that I get all of my projects done too! Too funny about the jelly shoes, who knew they would come back! Wishing you safe travels and can't wait to see you again! Love you guys!

Hope you get lots of good use out of those comfy skirts, you have surprised me again with your interest in sewing, and a very good talent to master. I think the pink shoes are a keeper for Brenna?

It was SO nice to see you and Brenna on Thursday! She reminds me so much of Maddie at that age. They grow up so fast. Is the pottery place in Medina, All Fired-up? Or is there another pottery place that I'm missing out on. Do tell.
