Matt bought me a great birthday, anniversary and Christmas gift this year with my help. All those events fall in December so it works out well. I took it out of the box yesterday and charged the battery. Now I need to start figuring everything out.

Sadly this is a project I have been meaning to complete for over 2 years! Yikes, I know. I bought a wicker hamper and it was great other than the original liner fabric. For some reason someone thought it would be good to use pumpkins and squash for laundry??? Strange.
The new and improved hamper which fits perfectly between my washer and dryer.

This year I am attempting to give mostly hand made gifts for Christmas. Our dogs are no exception. With leftover fleece scraps from the dog coats I made for Lilly I created some toys.

While visiting in Wisconsin we decided to go roller skating as a family. About 21 of us ended up going. Most of us had not been skating for 15 years or more. Pictures turned out horrible in the dim light but were too fun not to share. No falls for me but Matt had 3 by the time we left as a result of trying to out maneuver the rest of us.

While we were with family over Thanksgiving we had an early Christmas since we won't make it back in December. This year I made all of my nieces and nephews pajamas. The girls received night gowns and the boys flannel pants and a knit shirt.

Our little terrier mix, Lilly, does not appreciate the cold weather very much. We knew we would be in cold snowy weather over Thanksgiving so I made her a couple of coats to help her handle the change from 72 degrees to 14 degrees.

My mom and sister decided it would be a good idea to attempt to make stuffed turkey cupcakes from a recipe in a magazine. (sorry I don't even know which one it came out of). While I was staying there over Thanksgiving I became part of the plan.
