Christmas is coming!

We have started our countdown to Christmas. We have an advent wreath that I made with a group of ladies at my church. Each day Bay gets to open a present off the wreath. We tell her what the item is and what it symbolizes. Then Daddy reads the Bible verse that goes with it. Bay really enjoys opening presents. I hope this is practice for her so she will know exactly what to do on Christmas morning. I am ready to start packing for our Christmas road trip. With each paycheck I buy items needed for a better trip. I am still trying to get together a couple of things for Bay to do in the car. I am thinking since we are splitting the trip up by staying with my mom that most of the drive they will be asleep. They are good travelers. I am really enjoying this season this year. We have pancakes on most Saturdays but now we are making pumpkin pancakes and they are wonderful. This time I let Bay stir the batter and watch the pancakes cook. She loves to help with anything. Also I have been entering so many giveaways on blogs and am yet to win. Tonight I went to a ladies exchange party. Everyone brought 6 similar gifts and came home with 6 different awesome gifts. I will definitely do this again next year. One of the gifts I brought home was a beautiful ornament which I put at the top of the tree. Our couches are a barrier around our tree which protects the presents but also creates a place for Bay to climb on and pull ornaments off. So they are on and off the tree throughout the day.

He's in a band, I am in a guild...

Yep, Tony is in a small band(friends from work). He is excited about it. And I have an innate need to craft and I found a quilting guild that meets at my church. The average age is probably 65-70 but they know so much and I am ready to learn.Our generation seems to be lacking in the sewing department. I want to make one of those warm log cabin kind of quilts one day. One you would wrap up in during the holidays. I have to get my sewing machine claeaned and repaired first. I haven't been posting lately because our computer has been hijacked. They like to send out mass emails and make our internet company cut our internet off. We were told to reprogram our computer and reinstall windows and install an antispyware thing. Whatever. I wish I knew more about computers. It is not happening as fast as I would like it to. We are going to Greenville, MS for Christmas! We have many people to see. We will probably be there from the 23rd-28th. Speaking of Christmas, I finished the dolls for the girls. Here is a picture.I wonder which one Bay will choose.
