Did you have yourself a merry little Christmas?

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! Mine was quite good. My sister Mrs. P. gave me these neat-o vintage Farm Journals! The Ford tractor ad is from 1950. Our tractor is a 1948 Ford so they're pretty similar.

Christmas Eve!

I thought I'd hurry up and write a post.
We're getting ready to go to Aunt P's.

Confidential Present Info Enclosed! Don't look at this if you're my sister!

I know I already did a post today, but I'm snowed in remember!
Check out these ornaments I made for gifts! (Even though I was already done with my to-do list.) FYI: Anything I make I'd be happy to do custom orders for. :)

Caroloing, caroling we did go...

Christmas bells are ringing,
Thankfully we didn't lose any toes,
Christmas bells are ringing.
(To the tune of "Caroling, Caroling" hee hee)

Ya so it was pretty cold last night for caroling, but it sure was fun! Afterward we went back to church for Christmas tea made my my sister Miss A U, and HOMEMADE EGGNOG ala Miss Ella. (Don't worry, it had faux rum flavoring.) :P That eggnog was soooo good. (Considering I used to hate eggnog!) I think it might be my new fave!

Merry Christmas Eve Eve Eve!

Yesterday was my sister Mrs. P's birthday. I think it was a pretty good one. Here's a fun picture of Donna Sue. She's all ready for Christmas with the apron I made her on. :) The little elf's name is Herbie. (He's the cousin of Hermie off Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer. He doesn't want to be a dentist though, he wants to be an auto mechanic. hee hee) Ok I'm kind of silly today.I better go get some work done or something. Tonight I'm going caroling with church! Ya-hooooo!

5 Days til Christmas!!

Check out little dude's Christmas present. Every time I see it I want to start singing "Domo Arigato Mr. Roboto." Hee hee.

Ice Day!

Get it? Instead of "snow day"? Hee hee. Trees outside are cracking from the weight of the ice on the branches. It's really pretty except for the whole dangerous part. I took some pictures while I was feeding the chickens and ducks this morning.
I'm almost done with nephew's sweater. Right now I'm sewing on an applique. Then I might embroider some words or something.

Look what I got today!

Check out this cute calendar that I got today. I got it at Dollar General, of all places! It came as a gift set with a mug and hot cocoa for 5 bucks! Sweet!! Hmm...think think think...oh I also made some bread today. I found the recipe in "Hobby Farm Home" magazine. It's still rising so hopefully it tastes good.

Oh, the weather outside...

...is BEAUTIFUL! I love snow. Unfortunately I've been sick the past few days so I can't enjoy it quite as much as I usually would.
Anyhoo, my goals for today (even though in a sinus medicine induced fog) are to work on the Christmas presents that I should have been working on a month ago. Oh well, I can check one off the list: Lil' niece's dress is finished! (It's the same dress as in the pic at the top, only it's a few sizes smaller.) Yay! One down, a ba-gillion to go! :)
