Some Highlights

Mark and Linda came over on Christmas Eve. We had a nice dinner, read the Christmas story, and opened some gifts.

They had come bearing gifts of American Girl outfits

and light sabers.

This morning was the Big Event. My gosh, I thought the house was going to explode with all of the secrets.

And indeed, it did.

Some highlights:

A softie Thalia made for AnnaBeth:

A felt ornament AnnaBeth made for me:

Flannel jammie pants the girls made for Rick (way too baggie, but that's the great thing about jammie pants):

And a potholder Thalia made for me, lined with cotton batting and Insul-Bright (pattern from Sew Simple):

The day has been spent assembling Star Wars Legos and watching all 6 DVDs, occasionally acting out the light saber scenes.

It looks like you had a wonderful holiday. And I'm happy to see the American Girl horse arrived safe and sound. :-)
