Home Alone...






I've made great progress on my Moonbeam witch. She is turning out soooo great. I have run out of the white blending thread so I had to order some yesterday. Hopefully the mail man will bring it soon. I know I wrote in my last post that I was going to do some back stitching..sorry to disappoint ya all but I didn't get to it. After I finish this piece I'm going to have to start my Christmas presents. I haven't stitched a single ornament this year and that's not like me at all! I usually have at least a dozen done by now. Before I forget..If any of you would like to receive a Christmas card from me plz send me your address. Send it too glorylady29@gmail.com




Keith and I took down our Halloween decorations the other day. Seems like we didn't have them up very long. Keith wanted to start putting up our Christmas decorations, only because it takes us sooooo long to do it. (we really go all out for Christmas). But for some reason we haven't gotten to it yet. We have been having awesome weather here, 75 degrees..in November! It's very strange. To be wearing light summer clothes when we should be hauling out our winter coats. It makes me think that come January we might be in for some major winter weather.


I spent all day yesterday ALONE! Keith and Brandon went to MIL's for the night on Tuesday. She wanted to keep Brandon over night and needed Keith to do some house repairs. So they both packed up and went to stay. It was so awesome. I sat and watched like 7 episodes of Desperate housewives. (season 3..old reruns). I did some cleaning..stitched..cleaned some more..stitched. Mostly I stitched and watched TV. LOL It was great.


Post edited forgot to post MIL's pumpkin


After I clicked the publish post button I remembered that I wanted to share my MIL's (who I will now refer to as mom) Pumpkin with you all. Mom got this great idea for her pumpkin from someone else. And I just LOVE it. She used the pieces from Mr.Potato head. You know..the kids toy. Brandon just loved it. So guess whats he's getting for Christmas?!? And just think..Brandon can do this himself next year. Put the pieces anywhere he wants to..and no mess!

While at moms house we decide to rake the leaves. Well Brandon in sited on helping..of course. Just look at him. After we raked up a big pile we taught him how to jump in and have lots of fun. We had a blast..who knew playing in scratchie leaves would be so fun. I had to take an extra allergy pill but it was worth it.

Lucky you on your day alone! Moms deserve breaks like that!

Don't get me wrong, I love my husband and my girls and wouldn't want to be without them...but at the same time, I look forward to having little breaks from everyone here and there.

She's looking great.

I am not looking forward to pulling out all the decorations, but I like getting the tree.
