As I sit here...........

My house is so quiet except for the TV noise in the background. Both boys are gone with friends and John is still working late. I guess I must get used to the quiet, even though my heart is protesting the fact that my children are older and will be venturing out on their own. Spring semester starts Jan. 6th for Jacob, I'm glad he has chosen to live at home to save money, I will be taking him every morning to campus so we will see how that goes.
I'm working on my niece's baby sampler and as soon as I get my charger back, I'll post pictures of what i have! Little Reagan is doing better, we are hanging in there. Some sleep apnea problems going on and we need to be able to maintain our weight and our body temp, but other than that, she is breathing on her own. Go baby girl! Aunt Donna wants to hold you!
I get to see my baby sis tomorrow so I'm happy for that!
Hugs my friends!

Hoping Everyone had a Blessed Christmas!

Here in Georgia, we had snow on Christmas! First time on Christmas since the 1800's! How awesome is that? I'd have took pictures but guess who left their camera battery and charger over their momma's house? Me! It was beautiful watching it fall last night! Warm by the fire with my family around me!
Wishing everyone a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Drop by to see me this Wednesday at The Stitch Store! I'm working at the shop! Get ready for Tuesday night Stitch-ins! It starts January the 4th! Remember that we only have 8 seats so call ahead to let us know if you'd like to join us!
Hugs to all!

Wonderful Christmas Party!

Every year I host our annual Christmas party at my house for my family and I'm excited to say it is growing again! My brother Patrick asked his girlfriend to marry him and she said Yes! So it was exciting to have everyone over! (Poor Kelly was in a wreck on the way over! Can you believe that she was hit and run? At least they caught the lady who hit her! Some people just don't care!) I'm blessed to have Kelly in our family! Wedding, Wedding, Wedding! Wahoo for me! I'm already thinking of bridal stuff!

My great baby niece Reagan is doing good, still in the NICU and my niece Tiffany has got the blues so bad, please pray for her that her little princess gets to come home soon! I know it must have been hard leaving the hospital without a baby in her arms!

Speaking of babies, my baby Jason will turn 21 on Thursday! Gosh, where did the time go?

Are y'all ready for Christmas? I have 2 more presents to get tomorrow! Then I will be finished! I'm so behind in my stitching, so I'm looking forward to things calming down so I can get back to stitching! Gotta get Reagan's birth sampler finished, plus gotta work on Patrick and Kelly's wedding sampler.

Well it's late and I need to get in the bed! Busy day tomorrow!

Finally got my tree decorated! Plus a new baby!

Thank you to all my friends who wished me peace and love after my doggy Brutus had to be put to sleep. It's been very quiet here at our house, my kitties are doing their best to keep me occupied. Butters has been in my lap every time I sit down. Bless them for that. They know Brutus is gone.

I got my tree decorated and I still need to finish my mantel, but I need to get some material to finish it off. A big thanks goes out to Edgar for brightening up my day with some Christmas goodies! Johnny ate everyone of those cherries Edgar! I didn't even get a taste! He sure did enjoy them!

Anna, thank you for one of your cookies! It smells heavenly! Superb decorating skills my girl!

I'd like to introduce you all to my newest great niece Reagan Leigh Richey! She was born 12 weeks early by emergency c-section. I'm glad I was there for support for my niece Tiffany and Justin. It was quite scary, but the Lord watched over my girls and Momma is doing fine and baby Reagan is a fighter! She is 12 days old and weighs 3lbs now! Yea! I can't wait till I get to hold her!

I better get a move on her cross stitch! I figured I had plenty of time! hahahaha

Hope everyone has a great week!

Sad news......

It is so hard when it comes to having a pet put to sleep, but this afternoon when I got home from the gym, I knew it was Brutus's time. :(

18 years is a long time for a dog and I'm blessed to say that my boys were there for me during this hard time. He will no longer be hurting or having seizures or being unable to hold his bowels, I know that I probably should have had him put to sleep last year, but I couldn't. But today I let my baby rest in peace. I will miss you ruffy tuff!

My heart is sad and I'm unable to type anymore tonight!

Hug your pets my friends!
