I must be trying my darnedest to sabotage my new year's diet before it even begins because we've spent a crazy amount of time baking with Grandma Craig, and have been eating like royalty since we got here. Christmas Eve and morning were a lot of fun. Santa treated all of us quite kindly, and I do believe we don't need anymore toys ever! I'm a sucker for happy kids, and love to see their surprised faces Christmas morning.
My Mom and I have been taking advantage of her four-wheel-drive, and venturing to my favorite fabric stores here. They haven't failed, and I have plenty of fabric to keep me busy when I get home. Right before Christmas I got an order for five bags for the Godfrey sisters, Emily's Mom wanted a bag for everyone for Christmas, so I whipped a few out, and must say I thought they turned out cute. I hope they liked them. I think I have more fun sewing the bags when I'm free to choose the fabric. The real thing that got me to learn to sew was the desire to create with beautiful fabrics. I'm a sucker for a good yard, even if I don't know what I'm going to use it for, I'm happy to own it. Luckily I've learned how to do a thing or two with my collection.
The kids have been having a great time getting reaquainted with their Utah cousins. We don't get to seem them as often, and they really get along well with them. Travis' Dad has a barn full of turkeys, pigs, horses and chickens, and my kids think his "farm" is the best place to be. We also had fun sledding yesterday in Lindon despite the lack of proper snow clothes. We made do, and warmed up with Grandpa's hot chocolate after. Hallie doesn't ever want to go home, and I think will be quite sad when we do.
