The kids have helped over the course of two days to get our Christmas tree set up and decorated. I was happy last year with the four foot tree, but this year I was browbeaten into putting up the behemoth. Somehow, we’ve acquired all manner of animatronic figures and doodads. Personally, I’d rather set up our Nativity and call it good. Isn’t that what Christmas is all about anyway? I’ve already decided at the end of the season to do some serious weeding out of all our decorations. You can’t see Jesus in the manger for all the other crap we’ve got going on.

Tomorrow, Co Def #2 is having some fairly involved dental work done. I’m taking along my cross-stitch WIP to hopefully distract myself during the supposedly two hour ordeal. She’s already a nervous wreck, and frankly, I’m not far behind. I chose a totally inappropriate time to go cold turkey on the Xanax. Wish us luck.
And last, but not least, my blogger buddy Mary over at Made with Love by Mary is in need of prayers as she prepares to go through some health related tests. It’s the season of miracles. I’m praying for one for her.
Happy quilting, y’all!
