Finally Friday! :)

Hello Friends!!
Hope you are all doing well!! I can't believe it is almost the end of January!  Soon it will be Valentine's Day!

Not too  much going on this weekend!  My sewing machine is getting a little tune up. I have a one day retreat next Saturday and then the next weekend is my "Young Chicks" sewing retreat.  We are a group of gals that have been meeting for about 5 years now. It is super fun, but I must confess, I tend to like the socializing part more than the sewing part!  I can sew anytime I want at home, since I don't have two-leggged kids.  Alot of the Young Chicks are moms, so it is such a wonderful time for them to be able to get away for some sewing and friend-fun!  

The hard part about retreats is that I really miss Annabelle and Zoey!  Oh!! And Paul too! :)  Sometimes he will bring the girls for a little visit, depending on how far away from home I am.   I guess it is good that after 17 years, I still miss my hubby when I am away!

Hope you all have a super great weekend!!  Here's a picture, just in case you wanted to see two precious faces! :)  I caught Annabelle in the act of playing with an ornament on my tree!!  I had to snap a shot of that cuteness!!!  As you can see, I am not a very good at discipline!

Oh my goodness! Zoey was SO tired! :)

Secret Sister goodies!!

Hello There!  My dear hubby got an Ipod for Christmas and after trying to download songs, ended up frying our computer!  So......after many phone calls and trips to the computer store, we are back on line! Seems like we have no end to computer related problems!  Hopefully this is the last!

Anyway..................I have a new Secret Pal this year, from the Dear Jane website!   I received a wonderful package this week and took a picture!  Everything was packaged up in such a cute box! I'll put my cards in that.  The pink pin cushion fits on your wrist. So cute!  The tape measure is perfect, because it is pink with a pink tassle and believe it or not, I didn't own one until now! :)    The mulling spices are wonderful!  I had a little in my tea this morning and it was a taste treat.  And the glass candle. Beautiful. It is the Love chapter from the Bible and I can't wait to light it up in my quiet room.  Here's a funny "small world" thing!  My Secret Pal actually lived in Neenah, Wisconsin while she was little.   She got a little Schnauzer puppy at Thanksgiving, so I know her household must be very busy! :)   And full of puppy fun!   Oh how I love dogs!  :)   

Annabelle and Zoey are ready for their supper, so I'd better go feed the little princesses!
