Merry Christmas Everyone!

I hope you all had a fabulous day! We went to my parents' home and came back yesterday. Since we had to come back the day of Christmas, mom chose to cook Christmas dinner the day before. This was great cause we had leftovers while we were there, but when we got home there was nothing for dinner. I picked up Chinese. I totally felt like Ralphie from A Christmas Story! We just needed a crazy relative to give my son a pink bunny costume!

Everyone was pleased with their haul and it was nice to see my family. We do have a couple of returns (hubby's George Foreman grill had a big crack in the top when we took it out of the box, and my pj's don't fit) but otherwise most everything went over well. There are some cards to spend, and my aunt who passed away recently left each of us a little money. I almost hated to take it cause I know my other aunts could use it but I also know there was no arguing about it. So now I will think of something cool to get with it that I wouldn't have bought myself otherwise.

So what did Santa get you for Christmas? I got a new rice cooker (my other one was disgusting because we used it so much), an ice cream maker attachment for my Kitchen Aid mixer, some pj's, slippers, boots, and a cute set of measuring cups in the image of Matroykshka dolls. How cute are these?

I hope Santa was kind to you all and that your holidays are wonderful. I hope to get back in the sewing room tomorrow. I'm currently working on post Christmas laundry and taking down some Christmas decorations, then I'm off to pick up a black printer cartridge so I can print the return paperwork for the grill. Pretty sad when you don't even have enough ink in your printer to send something back!
Happy Holidays!

We have a long tradition (way back from high school days) of going out on Christmas Eve, after church, and eating Chinese. Yum!

It sounds like you had a great Christmas! Enjoy the sewing time. I hope to get a lot of that myself over the weekend.
