Merry Christmas! From Our Home to Yours...

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas! Hubby and I are having a quiet Christmas day, just the two of us. We're planning a nice hike with Cooper (Scout has gone back home), movie watching, and grilling steaks later. We'll see Daughter 2 and SIL2 tomorrow. And we'll see Daughter 1 and SIL1 soon, too. When kids grow up and get married they have to split themselves between two sets of parents. We've never pressured our kids to be here for any certain holiday - we don't want to stress them. We were so blessed to have EVERYONE here for Thanksgiving!

Hubby surprised me with lots of fun gifts - I'll share them tomorrow.

Yesterday after our hike I made miles of scrappy orange bias binding.

And I machine stitched it to the quilt. Last night I hand stitched the binding down one of the long sides (while we watched Jason Bourne). Making progress!

Today's movie will be Love Actually - nope, we've never seen it! There will be more hand stitching to come!

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas day!


  1. We're having a low key Christmas, too. We feel the same way about holidays and offspring. Two live out of state and my DD is just 10 miles away, but her MIL is only .5 mile away, so we share them. We're having chicken, potatoes and kale salad, plus cookies for dessert. Merry Christmas!

  2. I do the same with my children for holidays. They both live near Washington DC and I live in Texas. We get together in late January when we can celebrate everyone's birthday! Takes the stress out and hopefully gives me MIL points��!
