We Made It!
Tuesday, December 18, 2007
We made it through our Christmas orders! Everything is packed up and on its way. What a great feeling! I hope my customers are as thrilled when they open their boxes of Christmas gifts this week from Polka Dot Market.
I cannot tell you how excited I am to play with my little girls, wash the dishes, vacuum the house, put away the laundry, play with my girls some more, cook my husband a hot meal or two, and go to sleep before 2:00 a.m. Laundry? Cleaning? Why would I want to do those things?! Well, I love my family and I can't wait to take care of them like they have been taking care of me these past two months. What a great feeling it will be to have a clean house with dinner in the crockpot (maybe) and extra time to tickle my girls or play tea party too!
I am thankful for this season, our family, our church, our neighbors and our friends across the country. This is a first Christmas without my favorite Aunt Ann who passed away September 14th. I cry every time I think of her, but I know she would only want us to celebrate the season in joy, laughter, gratitude and surrounded by family. She is missed!
Wishing you a few days off to spend with your family too...make the most of it and give lots of hugs and tell everyone you love them. Take lots of pictures too!
Now on to sewing gifts for my family and friends...the fun never ends around here!
Merry Christmas (in one week)!
P.S. - I forgot to tell you that the photo is from my customer, Julie. You can see more of her work at Lot 116 Photography. Isn't her daughter PJ adorable?!
