Christmas Is Exhausting!

I just could not resist this shot! They are sleeping like babies!

This is Tipper, our 9 month old "pup" and her best buddy, PeeWee the cat.  They are napping on the couch.  I keep a blanket thrown over it so it won't get covered with hair.  They are so funny when the play together. I would have taken a shot of Ricky asleep in the recliner but I don't think he wants to be posted on the web.  We have had a great Christmas, saw all the family from both sides, within the past 2 weeks and are now enjoying a restful afternoon with just the two of us at home.  I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!

Walking on Water (Ice)!

The sun is finally shining this morning and if it continues maybe the ducks won't have to do this much longer!

Our ponds have been frozen for several days now.  At least we are lucky enough that we don't have snow covering the ground, even though it would be nice for Christmas.  I have a hard time doing anything productive when the temps drop.  I just want to stay in my jammies and drink coffee by the fire.

We are having our family Christmas today. This will be a new tradition started this year so we will see how it goes.  I can only pray that all goes well and we are able to share good times together.  I'm giving jelly and jam to all, hope they like it!

Addition to Studio!

Saturday my wonderful husband fixed a stand for my quilt batting. 

Lately it has been standing up in a corner of my studio.  I am so excited about this and it's just in time for me to use.  I am ready to put another quilt on my longarm so I get to try it out this week.  The plaid fabric that you can see is the backing for the quilt.  He also made me a big board to go over my ironing board.  I'll post about that another day because I have got to put a cover on it.  I am so thankful for having a husband that will support the things I like to do.  Have a great day!
