Around the house...

We spent a lovely and much needed weekend away in northern New Hampshire visiting my nephew and his fiance'. We stayed in a beautiful old farmhouse that I found through a vacation rental site, sorry no pics of the weekend, I didn't use my camera once! But I might steal some from my daughter's camera if I get a chance.

Before we left, I did start to take some pics of the Christmas decor around the house. Each year I do things a little different, depending on the mood I am in. For the kitchen window, I used some red gingham fabric and made a scalloped edge for the shelf and hung some pinecones in the window. It came out simple and sweet and fit in with the rest of the kitchen theme.

Burlap seems to be very popular lately and I had some upholstery webbing burlap, so I made a big bow for one of the wreaths in the kitchen and hung it on the hutch by the table.
Mason's nap time is usually in the afternoon and since I moved my sewing area to my bedroom, I was in need of a way to entertain him for a bit so I could get some sewing done. I popped in his favorite movie(Lilo and Stitch is this weeks pick) on my lap and put him on my bed. Within minutes of me starting to sew, I looked over my shoulder and this is what I saw :)While he slept, I sewed a wool scrap blanket.
Have a productive Monday,

Thank You

I'm extremely happy to report that Mason is fine and doing well. Everything went smoothly, other than the normal screaming from an almost 2 yr old who has major mommyitis, and even that wasn't too bad, he just wanted the IV out as soon as he woke up. Thank you all for your prayers, they really meant a lot to me. I am so glad this is behind us and it is one less stress on my mind.
Hopefully I will have some sort of Internet back on Monday and I can share some pics with you. Thank you again all my wonderful blog friends.

Have a lvoely weekend,

keep Mason in your Prayers, please....

We are in between Internet providers, so I am using hubby's iPad, which is incredibly slow and awkward to use, so please ignore typing errors. As I mentioned in previous posts, we are going through some very stressful times, which is part of why I haven't been posting, I just don't have the gumption. But I am making this post to ask you all to keep Mason in your prayers. He is going in tomorrow morning(Friday) for dental surgery. It is in the hospital and he has to have general anethesia. Thank goodness he is to young to be stressing, but hubby and I sure am. Please pray that all goes well and he doesn't have any pain. I am one very nervous mommy.

I'll try to update later tomorrow.

Thank you,
