Today we had my husband's side of the family at our house. We had 34 for dinner - two of those were babies, but it was still a full house. I love it! Wish we did this more often. It's always fun to have a house full of the people you love.
And tomorrow the Christmas tree will go up. I think putting up the Christmas tree is one of my favorite things to do. And I did get out my Christmas quilts yesterday and my daughter is curled up on my sofa under one of them.
I hope everyone else had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well.

- I get to eat a holiday meal today that I didn't cook. (I'm bringing the veggie tray.)
- My girls will both be here on Saturday for a late holiday party.
- The winter storm conditions have ended and the sun is shining.
- Good health and well-being in my household.
- And . . . my Christmas shopping is already DONE!
Best holiday wishes to all.

Yesterday I picked up some of the pillowcases that had been made for the Pillows For People project and added them to the box. I just had to count them. 115 - and there were still maybe a half dozen left "decorating" the drop box at the coffee shop. Plus there are 7 smaller pillow covers in this box.
The Love Feast event where these will be given away is coming up on December 16. I'm not sure we'll make our goal of having a new pillow and pillowcase for each of the attendees at the Love Feast. But we'll do the best we can.

A couple of weeks ago I posted about the Big Brother/Big Sister fund raising event I attended. We had a lovely lunch, a fun trunk show, and could bid on lots of beautiful items in the silent auction. I bought this framed applique . . .
