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.
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.
