Vacation Time!

Good morning dear blogging friends!
I've been enjoying my 'vacation' somewhat. I took the kids out yesterday while my Respite Angel took care of our handicapped daughter. We shopped all morning and enjoyed some lunch at Applebees. But the best part of the day is we got it ALL DONE! 
My table is empty....for the most part anyway.
I have a box of 'unfinished items' I cleared off of it and promised myself I'd get to the first of the year.
I've been sewing up some PJ pants for my little boy. He LOVES his PJs and picked out some Scooby Doo, Sponge Bob, and Cars material so I could make him some.
I received some goodies in the mail this week!
Valerie Richardson of Yorkies Primitives sent me these cute bowl fillers, ornies, and waxed pine cones from her Giveaway that I won. She also sent this.....
Val, the kids just LOVE this!! So much fun to make up your Snowman on the fridge, especially since we'll not have ANY snow in sight!
Also got a cute Christmas ornament from a sweet cyber friend.
Thank you SO much, Barb!
On the agenda today is Christmas Cards....yes, I'm a bit late getting them out.....wrapping gifts, and letting the kids paint their salt dough ornies that they cut out .
SO much for my vacation, right?! Well, I had to close down my Etsy so I could make time for this kind of fun!!
Hope your Holiday Season is special and you find time to enjoy some down time with your loved ones. After all, isn't that TRULY what it's all about?!

Love your goodies from Val and the salt dough ornaments look so fun.
Glad you like the ornie. Thank you for the mention and the wood!
Merry Christmas!

What a cute snowman idea on the fridge! I love it! And it looks like everyone is getting in on the fun. Kids must take after you! Enjoy these next few days of holiday fun! It's supposed to get 'cool' so it will even feel like Christmas! Sweet hugs!

OMGosh Vicky, you're an angel yourself. You're a super fun mom!
Man, I'd love to have some of those pj's, but the fabric would bust your piggy bank! Ha!
Sweet and fun gifts from your friends, love 'em :)
Merry Christmas baby!

Vicky, I am so glad your kids love the snowman magnet! I used to love doing the crafts and cookies and candy with my kids. Enjoy them while you can because they are gone before you know it!
Have fun on your vacation! Hugs and Merry Christmas, Valerie
