Christmas past and A Happy New Year!!

I can 't believe it 's 2010 already..... my computer has been down for the past few days so I didn't get to wish you all a Happy New Year!

I have some pictures from Christmas to share:

The scene is set....packages under the tree, fire in the fireplace and the smell of fresh coffee.....but where is everyone?

Shayla was the first to dig in....she found all her presents and enjoyed opening each one!

I think hubby liked his new lap quilt.....hee hee!

Broc liked his prezzies as well....looking stylish there bud with your new hat!

My girlfriend and her daughters surprised me with a cake and presents for my birthday....I like having cake before breakfast....especially if it fave!

Another successful Christmas....everyone enjoyed their gifts....I made Robin a quilted table runner, 8 coasters and 2 hot pads....this is the fabric I used

Of course the picture doesn't do the fabric justice, but what I did was but a thick piece of batting between the layers but before I put the back piece on I stitched along each line where there was CQ stitching...kinda like stitch in the ditch type and it made it look hand quilted....she loved it!
Aaron got a digital photo frame, which he liked as hoping he didn't get one already....yeah!

Mama and babies all resting....can't believe a new grand baby in just a couple of weeks.....woo hoo!

Even Shayla has tuckerd out from all the days fun and excitement....she's all cozy in her new blanket too!
