It has been such a busy two weeks and I'm sure it has been for everyone! I always feel like I've been sucked up in the tornado that went through Kansas and dumped down in a heap after the holidays! But I do love it so, especially because my kids aren't getting any younger and I know that in a few years I'm going to be missing all the hustle and bustle, kitchen with flour and sprinkles from one end to the other, the kids being excited on Christmas morning (well, DD still is, DS is getting too old I think).Not a lot of stitching to show since I last posted:
Other than that it's been cooking, baking, last minute shopping, wrapping, etc. But then thrown into the mix to make me crazy was an emergency run to the Orthodontist for DD as she broke two brackets on her braces (she thought that she could just eat a couple Fritos - NOT), a couple items that needed to be picked up for relatives that DH forgot to mention, our computer crashed big-time so I'm hopelessly behind on all the blog reading (so bear with me - I'll get there) and I broke a tooth. I was scheduled for my sinus lift and implant on January 4th, but it now seems that I need a root canal on this broken tooth, so that will have to moved once again. How did I get so lucky to get all this excitement? LOL

9. Audition by Barbara Walters
As I said, I probably won't get Audition done as it's a large book. I am enjoying it though. I never was a huge fan of hers, but I'm enjoying her book.
Well, that's it for me. Still more baking to do for our Christmas feast tomorrow night! My in-laws are Polish and always have their big dinner on Christmas Eve. And yes, there is homemade kielbasa, periogies, the most wonderful mushroom borsht and just about anything else you can think of as being Polish. It's a sweatpants kinds of meal! LOL
Hope that everyone has a wonderful, peaceful and joyous Christmas.
