Wow, it's almost Christmas!

It's finally starting to feel like the Christmas season.  My son just came home from college last night, we got the little tree up, and I'm starting to bring gifts from the office home to enjoy.  Life is good!  I enjoy the cooler weather because I finally get to wear sweaters and blazers and not look out of place.  LOL.

The quilt for my mom for Christmas should be done in the next couple of days.  The long-arm quilting lady brought it back last Monday, and I have been busily getting the binding on ever since.  Lots of handwork that requires very small careful stitches.  But it is all well worth the effort.  She will be so surprised and thrilled!

My father is getting a new board game that I think he will love.  It is a railroad game, but is enough different than his other railroad game that he will enjoy it.  I'm fully expecting that we will all sit down and play for a couple hours on Christmas afternoon.  A good bonding time for grandparents and their grandchildren!

Ho, ho, ho and Merry Christmas to everyone!
