Having a nice visit...

My mom has been here since last Tuesday, and it has been so much fun. I have even gotten to do a bit of stitching, as we sit and visit.

Yesterday was my birthday, we went to the zoo, and out to eat at the Cracker Barrel, and then had cold stone ice cream cake for my birthday. I got 100$ to spend from my mom for my birthday, I bought jeans, and stitching stash. I filled in holes in my DMC collection and bought some snowman pattern books. I was going tobuy "King of the Hill" a Wolf design put out by Kustom Krafts but I would have had to order it online, and that money was burning a hole in my pocket! LOL!

This past week I have really been going to town on my dad's train, Snow Valley Express, I also worked a little bit on Holiday Airing the other night as well. Other than that not much is going on, just relaxing, and hanging out with mom. She leaves in a few more days, so we decided that we are gonna "have Thanksgiving" today and then tomorrow we are gonna put up Christmas stuff, with her. A bit early, and usually we (Hubby and I) are like "the two weeks before Christmas is fine" kinda people, but we wanted to sorta have the "holidays" with mom here.

So if you drive past my house and see my Christmas tree up, please don't laugh at me! LOL!

Happy Belated Birthday. It sounds like you had a grand time. I also enjoy eating at Cracker Barrel, and Cold Stone has wonderful ice cream. Glad that you had a good time with your mom, enjoy having both Thanksgiving and Christmas. So many places are putting up decorations now that I'm sure you won't look all that early. Besides, lighted Christmas trees are so pretty that having a little more time to enjoy it sounds lovely. I especially enjoy them late at night, all the lights off except the tree, sipping on hot tea and listening to carols. Hmmmm maybe I need to go get my tree out. :)
