I can hardly believe this is New Years Eve! Where has the year gone? Too fast for me, thats for sure. It has been a wonderful year as I found the blogging world. I have been Blessed meeting so many fellow Quilters, and many of you have become dear Friends, for that I Thank You. There have been a lot of ups and downs for most of us, lets hope this year blesses us with mostly ups. My wish for you all is Good Health and Happiness, and pray for World Peace. Happy Quilting! Love 'n hugs n'kisses Kaye

We made it home with absolutely no problem. 27 inches in Reston VA at my son's house and boy they were ready for it. It started to snow about 8:30 Fri nite and plows were out and waiting, the Dept of Public Works deserve a huge hug and the Thanks from all who were on the roads. It was the same in Maryland all the way into Delaware. The pictures are from my sons House, it was beautiful and it really feels like Christmas. Thanks to Our Lord and Our Guardian Angels for the safe ride home
The picture of Santa and Mrs Claus was taken at the Cracker Barrell thats on Rte 50 past the Bridge, opposite the outlets. It was the perfect ending to our trip.

Its a winter wonderland! Living in Delaware we see very little snow, but we traveled to my son's house in Virginia for his annual Christmas Party. I just didn't believe the weatherman when he forecast up to 2 feet, was I wrong. We woke this morning to 11 inches of the white stuff Its beautiful. Sorry I can't post the pictures we took, as I am using my sons laptop and I don't have the cables to hook up the camera. Katie and Brandon are so excited, they haven't seen this much snow in a good long time. Hope we make it home for Santa!!

My Baby is 40 to-day, yes Kathy is 40. Her birth was extra exciting as she and my nephew Kevin were born on the same day. My sister Pat and I were room-mates in the hospital, and the newspaper came to take our pictures and write a story about us. It helped that our Mom worker at the hospital. My 5 children were all born in the 60's--- 60, 62, 63, 66 and 69. I can't even begin to believe that my oldest will be 50 next year..Life has been very Good to us, Sure we have our aches and pains, who doesn't, but we have been Blessed many times over. My Grandson Nicholas was born on Christmas Day and this year will be 18. How cool is that??

You know its getting close to the big DAY when the school has its Christmas Concert. My Grandaughter Katie's school goes to 5th grade. Its a Great School and what Fantastick Teachers. The music teacher has been doing 2 concerts a year for 30 years. She is so talented and it shows in the children. Every year its different and every year the kids get better and better. This year was the story of Kids having a Pajama Party , and the theme is "Jamming in our Jammies" They all wore their P J's to scool along with their slippers and some had to bring their pillows They told the story and sang and danced and I"ll tell you they were great. Even the boys got into it. They sang traditional Christmas Carols and some cute dancing songs. I was fortunate to sit in the front row and had a birds eye view! Katie is in the front row with short blond hair and purple pj's and slippers

I have just finished reading " The Master Quilter " by Jennifer Chiaverini. It is the story about the making of Sylvia's Bridal Quilt. Pat Casadei has been busy making the blocks and I am busy reading about them. It is a great story with a bit of mystery in it, and talks about the friendship , creativity, challenges and dreams that Quilters have. There is a series of books Jennifer has written, the popular Elm Street Quilters series. I also have Circle of Quilters and The Christmas Quilt. There are 8 more books that I know of that will definately be on my list for SANTA. A good read for many of my fellow bloggers. ps: am having a problem with my computer and my camera, they are not getting along, so no new pictures till I can get them looked at
