Merry Christmas to all!

Finally Christmas is here, and I didn't have to wait any longer to open my SSCS gift from Jan over at "little Red Hen". She spoiled me rotten with not only one, but three gifts!  First was this lovely bag in awesome fabrics, and inside were two wooden kangaroo buttons and a pattern!

This is the bag closed, isn't it gorgeous?

Jan also made me this pretty drawstring bag ( again- i LOVE the fabrics!!!!) and inside this bag was a pack of Christmas kleenex :-)

The third lovely gift Jan made me was this adorable stocking!  I just had to hang it on the tree right away!  Thank you so much for your generous presents Jan, I am thrilled with them all!!!
A million thanks to Donna as well for hosting the swap!!!!
Today we woke up to a cold morning with -32C ( -24F), so we have stayed inside pretty much all day.  Went to my Mom and Dad's for Christmas lunch/dinner which is a tradition, along with my brother and his wife and her parents and sister.  My parents also have some friends from Romania who doesn't have any family here who spend Christmas day with us,  Kristine is in Texas celebrating Christmas with her dad and stepmom there, so it does feel a bit empty here without her.  Can't wait to see her again in January.  She has a couple of weeks off before University starts again, so she'll be home for a few days then.
I hope everyones christmas has been wonderful!  Thanks for stopping by my blog!
