Lots of December News

December went by too fast. My camera decided to take a vacation and I wasn't able to capture all the memories I wanted to, but we still had a wonderful holiday month.

I started the month by cleaning the pantry. I couldn't do any baking or cooking with the mess that was in there. Now I can do more cleaning and organizing in there as my MIL gave me a set of Click Clack storage cubes.
We put up Mr. E's tree on Thanksgiving, but he wouldn't let me decorate it until last Tuesday. Once we had it decorated, he started singing Jingle Bells to it.
We did a Secret Santa swap at work. I made my partner this little wallet to go with . . .
this crocheted project bag. She loves it! So does her daughter, so I'll be making one for her in a few weeks.
My SSCS partner, Jenny, made me this stunning yarn basket and filled it with scrumptious Australian wool.

My Secret Santa partner at work stitched this awesome candle mat for me. She knows I love embroidery and chocolate so she stitched me "chocolate."
Grampa gave me and Mr. E Sesame Street's Yummy Cookies cookbook. You can be assured we will be trying out a few recipes over the next few weeks.

How was your Christmas?

Sweet P

Paula, I just love that crocheted bag you made! What a thoughtful and practical gift, and great looking besides! All your other little gifties are quite lovely too! Mr. E's tree is just darling and his enthusiastic singing must have been so fun to watch!

We had a wonderful Christmas here too!
