Countdown to Christmas... 12/18/2016

Today, in and around worship services, I finished getting the Christmas cards that we mail ready to go in the mail.  I hand delivered all the ones that went to the members of our church so now I'm all done with this part of Christmas preparations.

I received a pair of really cute Christmas socks from a friend at church!  Thank you Mrs. J.!

My husband and I received some goodies from some of the children at church.  Thank you sweet children!



It's the simple things that carry with it some pretty big Christmas cheer!

In and around worship services I also got the crocheted dishcloths I've been working on ready for gift giving.  I think they made cute gifts!

What did you do on your journey toward Christmas today?

  1. Tonight was my work Christmas party. I was asked to set it up and clean up. I got an extra shift and the leftovers. Works for me.

  3. Patsy you are really getting into Christmas and all the wonderful magic that surrounds this time of year. Today is our Katie's Birthday. She loved her gifts of a quality set of sheets(bought on a 60%off sale), Minion European pillow cases and pillows, Minion bunting and a Minion Boomerang pillowslip. I sent her off to work with vanilla slice, that I made last night, to share with her work colleagues.
    Now her Birthday is over I can concentrate of Christmas. All the gifts have been posted or sent off with Mum for the family celebrations. We will be staying home as Bluey isn't well enough yet to travel. The puddings are made, the seafood is on order with the pick up date much closer to Christmas. It's too hot here to have a traditional cooked meal.
    Hope you celebration build up continues at a merry pace.

    1. Jane, I bet your daughter's work colleagues sure do appreciate your thoughtfulness! Sounds like you have everything under control! We too are staying at home as our family lives too far away to make a trip to see them possible. We are planning a quiet day enjoying some of our favorite foods.

  9. You have turned into a "super crocheter!" You are really whipping out those dish clothes. I only made a few this year, and have already given them away. Next year, I'd like to have more on hand when the holidays arrive, but this year was a year of change with the big move and all. I took the leftover yarn from 2 and made myself one multi-colored one. It's a little strange, but it washes dishes. Your labels are lovely.
