Tuesday Update!

Well here it is the last update for this year!
I was able to get my quilt sandwich put together with the help of Jacquie! We used safety pins to hold it together. It went together fairly easily.

I guess I should tell you that Santa brought me a new sewing machine and I have decided to call her "J" short for Janome.  She is a Memory Craft 9700.

I made Nick some football fleece blankets while Darren watched MNF last night. Nick said, that he was getting use to the cold. I thought this might help:)
I think that Next year I will do a Thursday update as we will be having Mutual on Tuesdays!
 Happy New year to each of you!!!

Tuesday Update!

My sewing room all decked out for the Christmas season.

I really like this chair, but it will have to go back in the living room once the Christmas tree comes down.

I enjoyed making my own gift bags out of fabric. I got the idea from my little sister who has been gifting this way for a few years to us.

Do you think this black button goes or do you think it needs something brighter?
Merry Christmas too each of you, thanks for stopping by and leaving your comments.

Sister Dalton Came to SC!

It is 12:15 in the Morning and I just changed into my P.J's after returning from Columbia. We got to take our YM and YW to hear Sister Dalton speak. It was such a blessing. She is such a good example of the believers as the 2009 Mutual theme teaches. It was so awesome when all of the Young Women stood up and recited the Young Women's Theme with her. Then she asked for a few Young Men to volunteer to say what they felt as that happened. They said it was so Cool that they know that they are daughters of a Heavenly Father who loves them. One said that the Values are way cool. Etch.  She shared some personal experiences. She told them to take there time when reading the Book of Mormon and to liken the scripture to themselves. She told them how much she loved each of them. After she was finished speaking we viewed a short video. Sang called to serve and I cried after the first 5 words all the way thru. They were both happy and sad tears. After the closing prayer Sister Dalton was so kind to hug and speak with every single person who was there. The stake center was full!
She asked the youth to do these Three things each day.
1. Pray Morning and night
2. Read the Book of Mormon 5 min.
3. Smile

Black Friday???

So what is it with calling the day after Thanksgiving BLACK FRIDAY?  Why don't they call it Yellow friday or Brown friday or even Green friday? Here is what Wikipedia has to say about it.
Here is what we did instead of shopping!!!

We enjoyed the 1/4 mile walk out to the beach with the Morris Head Lighthouse in the distance.

James didn't think the water was nearly as cold as the Oregon Coast!

We could not let James go back to WV without tasting some local seafood.
We ate Lunch at Vickery's on Shem Creek!

On our way thru Charleston we had to stop while Engine #102 backed into the Firehouse! If you look really close you will see the time and outside temp.

We also drove over to the River Dog's Stadium so that James could see where they play.
