Slow stitching Sunday....

Today is a family day at home (a rare occurrence at my house). The kids had their first Christmas with Grandma H last night so we have way too many new toys in the house! I will pull a bunch of things from their rooms and the play room tomorrow while they are at school to make some room. We decided Grandma is not too great at Operation but Aidan and I rock! We each got 5 parts out of the minion without that buzzer going off!

Grandpa A will come over later this morning for a visit. After that I have Christmas cards to write out and get into the mail tomorrow (must print off the kids school pictures today to tuck into the cards). At some point I really want to watch the Polar Express since I got outvoted last week for the movie night! The kids each did their Polar Express at school this week in the library which included Em wearing her pj's to school on Friday for her movie. While I watch it I will either add some stitches into Hugs and Kisses or into my new hand piecing project of a trip around the world quilt. Maybe I will do a little of both!


Linking up with Kathy and the slow stitchers today as she reminds us each week to slow down and relax with some slow stitching.

We did breakfast with Santa yesterday morning and I got this picture of the kids on Santa's lap. They both were all smiles! I have a feeling this might be that last year for a both kid picture like this :(.

  2. TATW is growing! Your Santa pic takes me back to the day when my kids could still sit on Santa's lap! Great memories!

  3. Glad you are having fun family times and playing games... I would box up the kids toys (that they hadn't outgrown) and pull them out in the summer.. the kids had forgotten most of them and found treasures to amuse themselves in the summer... just an idea :). Love your Trip progress and hope Hugs and Kisses gets some time in too! Love the pic of your kids on Santa's lap... I do miss those days! Kathi

  5. Oh, another person hand piecing TATW! I love the idea. My grandkids were scared of the Operation game when I bought them one and they first played it. We had to put it away for a couple of years before we could play it again. Grandma (me) is usually the loser here because her hands shake a little! But it's loads of fun to play the old games with the kids.

  12. Someone needs to tell them to stop growing up! ;-)

    I had hoped to work on Christmas cards between events at the swim meet, but there just wasn't enough room, so I gave up on that notion ... and need to finish them up today!
