So much fun!

Oh Joy from 2010 JCS Christmas magazine 

Another 2010 JCS ornament 

Prairie Schooler Freebie 

Snowflakes by LHN

Here are the promised progress pics of the ornaments and my Snowflakes by LHN.  I have more stitched on the LHN but as I took the picture that morning and then stitched that night I don't have a more updated picture.  I haven't been able to sit down to stitch at all this week but, today I am going to get a serious case of stitchers butt. lol

The three kids are now well and going to school and Ms. Katie who was able to avoid getting sick these past three weeks has finally succumbed to it and is home with me again today.  What a month with the germs this has been!  I'm just thankful that everyone else (KNOCK ON WOOD!!!) is better and back to school.  I've been working and taking care of the sick little ones and I have to say that is no fun and way beyond stressful. lol   I've been working so late each night because you can't get much done in between getting meds, food, blankies and just snuggling with them when they are feeling poorly.  I decided to skip work today and just take some time to get the house in order, throw some soup in the crock pot, hit the store for some yogurt and ice cream for Katie's sore throat and then get the serious case of stitchers butt this afternoon. lol

The weather has been cold for us here in sunny Florida.  It hasn't got above 55 degrees since Monday I think.  Today it's 59 but it's cloudy and rainy.  Yuck!  I'm enjoying the cooler weather but I could do without the rain while it's slightly cooler.  I don't mind rain when it's warm out but when the wind is out of the north and cold, you can keep the rain, please and thank you. lol

We did manage to get the Christmas decorations out of the attic but alas, they are now sitting stacked against my sliding glass doors in the living room.  Tomorrow come Hell or high water (as my Mom used to say) the tree will get decorated and all the inside decorations will be put up.  I will post a picture or two if I'm not too exhausted after I get them all up.  Now, it's time to fold some clothes and get to work on the serious stitchers butt. ;)

Have a great weekend everyone!
