Christmas and Crazyness...

Okay...  Christmas snuck up on us this year!  Maybe it is because I am getting older, or maybe because time is actually moving faster!
 I shared a booth with Blair!  Just love her!
 She has some really neat art that she hand draws and colors with some amazing markers, and of course her amazing talent!
 I made(sewed) some covered dish carriers, and aprons in a jar and some other odds and ends.

This is supposed to be an apron in a jar.

 Here is my table...Decked with my Ninja clips and other fun stuff.  I sold just enough to cover my part in the festival and buy a Mcdonald's Big Mac!  Yikes!

 This large box came from a sweet girl in Texas!  Can you ever guess what was in it?  A real life Tumbleweed!
 Here are our stockings that I made about 10 years ago!  
 Not the best picture of me and my honey, but it will do for now.
 My husband always reads the Christmas story from Luke before we do gifts.  Even if we have heard it 5 times during the season...I think the birth of Christ the Lord should be read year round!  Praise the Lord for His Holy Word!
 We finally got a tree from Mr. Jones' Tree Farm a week before Christmas.
 Here are some of the boys playing their new Trouble game with R2 D2.  Dad is trying to be Obi-Wan Kenobi.  Funny.
The girls are playing with their new jeep and Target Dolls!

So the next week I was to make a wedding cake for a very sweet couple in our church.  And my friend and I did get the cakes made with fondant and ready for the big day, when one of my children got a bad cold that sent him to the hospital by ambulance.

 So glad he is finally home and better...getting better!   He has asthma. So, the cold attacked his lungs.  Praise the Lord he is home now and doing well.  The rest of us caught the cold.  My husband stayed in the hospital with our little froggy man until they released him on Monday!
 While I was being a "Mom" and staying home to take care of the little ones who were sick, I started preparing the Boy's room so when little Froggy man came home it would be allergen free and easy to maintain.  So off came his top bunk...
 There is less room now, but it will be easier to change sheets and vacuum the lint and dust!  I even sewed new curtains!  Later that night I came down with the cold...eeek.  I felt like someone was sitting on my chest!  Cough, cough, wheeze, wheeze.

My dear friend Becky(who taught me how to make wedding cakes) and her husband finished the cake for the sweet couple in our church and I was able to continue with what the Lord had lined up for our family at this time.
Red velvet cake with homemade butter cream frosting and homemade fondant.  Thank you Becky and Chuck!

So here is to a very Happy New Year in the Lord Jesus, who has brought us through all things and guided, provided, and supplied all our needs.

Hannah is doing several paintings and really wants to have a booth at some festival this fall. We will see. She loved seeing this. What did you do with the tumbleweed? :) That was funny!

So good to see everyone doing so well now! Keeping froggy man in our prayers! Please forgive me for not calling. I will try to call tomorrow and chat with you, if you have time. I know you are still recovering and working on school prep! Love to all!
