 The Christmas dancers did not disappoint!  Look at them dancing to Grampy's guitar playing!  It's a good thing you can't hear Granny's croaky singing.  I have a terrible cold!  
 Can you spy their daddy in the office?  They were full of JOY as they  raced around.  They only bonked heads a few times!
 Our first Sunday of Advent was FUN!  
 There were not many beautiful sights at Toys R Us.  The wrapping paper is pretty, don't you think?
 Clara will like inviting the Caillou people into her doll house.
 I've always loved girls who like horses.
 Aren't the brooms and dust pans adorable?
 The next day a friend and I went to the quilt shop.
 This is what I bought!  I am making Clara a rag quilt for her little white bed.  Flannel!  Cozy.

It's back to school today.  I sort of wish I could stay home and hook, hook, hook with this yarn.  I'm still practicing my ripples.
Guess what?  The Three Willows have arrived safely at MK's!  Go on over there and see what they're up to!  From there, I think they are traveling all the way to California. Stay tuned!
Come back here on Wednesday for a lovely dose of "A Childlike Christmas" please!  It's going to be fascinating!  (BIG HUG!)

Love that first photograph especially, glad you had such a good evening.

Can't wait to find out more about A Childlike Christmas.

Oh how precious....what a joy to just see the pictures so I know what a joy it was in real life. Childlike Christmas...that says it all.

Welcome Advent

Love the twirling and really think it is neat that you and Bill took Advent "on the road". You guys are super grandparents and making such great memories with those precious little ones. What fun to read about it.

Hope you feel better soon and the time flies until Christmas break.

Children know how to just have fun don't they. What treasure you have.

I am so sorry you are sick too. I hope you feel better, I wish I could bring you a cup of hot tea and honey. I would use my tea pot made in Occupied Japan.
I love all of the colors and I loved your little dancers. I am looking forward to Wednesday.
I loved horses. Still have a weakness.
Having to put my horse down though, keeps me from ever having another one.
Have a lovely Monday. I would wish to sit and sew today too, but as much as I hate to admit it, I never sew on Mondays.

Have a lovely week my sick friend. We will get better together,
hugs from me to you.

Hope you feel better quickly. The old loyal family dog is so sweet in the picture.

Twirling fairies, so lovely! I love the flannel you chose, it's going to be so pretty! Are you going to show us your ripple crochet? Crafting is just what you need when you have a cold...get well soon! xxx

That top photo is nothing short of spectacular! Love the glimpse of the tree- may I use your red tree picture from last week on Wednesday? I am about to start a ripple blanket- only the purchasing of wool stands in my way- but I'm too frightened to go the shop! Eye for colour juxtaposition not my forte- and I will as usual be paralysed into inaction for fear of jumping in! Will link to MK now- she has a gorgeous post- lots of emphasis on the book, which I love!

Oh Pom Pom, I hope your cold is better soon. What lovely little fairies in your house! The quilt like it will be wonderful on your granddaughter's bed - such cheery colours.

Love the photos Pom Pom, especially the first one :) And the material and wool are just so lovely, cosy and colourful, love them :) xxx

I'm so excited for tomorrow! I have such a fun/funny idea! I hope everyone can find the precious moments in the day when we are reminded that HE is with us!

Nothing better than children dancing to Christmas carols and guitar playing! Love the little brooms and dust pans. Blessed Advent.

Mmm, the colours and the textiles! It's a feast for the eyes! That reminds me, I need to get working a scarf for Bella.
