Happy December,
We have been in a heat wave (62 degrees) here in south western Ohio, but the snow is on it's way, it went from 1-2", to 2-4" and now it's 3-6" inches coming tomorrow.  Kids are thinking they won't have school, wait until they find out it won't be here until the afternoon :) 
Lets see, I have got some stitching in here and there but it's all been for exchanges so I can't share them yet, but I'm getting better with my finishing thanks to Vonna and her awesome tutorials.  
We'll folks, I'm returning back to work, officially on Monday!  I'm going to be working with pre-Headstart families, birth to 3 years old!  Ohh I love me some babies so I am very excited at this new juncture.  The kids will both be driving (Ashley takes her driving  test this Sat -pending weather) so I will no longer be driving her back and forth to school, work and soccer :)  I'm excited for her and sad at the same time, my baby will be even more independent and I love seeing the kids growing into the young adults they are becoming but I want my babies back to. 
OK, back to working, I've already got a bag of stitch stuff to keep in the car when there is time.  I will make time, lol.  Or stitch before work, I will figure something out. Hopefully this will also put me and hubby back on the right track some and help with the bills, etc.  I'm sure my fur babies won't be happy since they've had me all to themselves for awhile now.
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving, 18 family members were here.  Lots of food and laughter, so wonderful to visit with everyone.  I am thankful for my husbands family, they are such a loud fun bunch to be around, you can't help but smile when they are near.  I am also looking forward to Christmas so I can visit with my mom and dad who I haven 't seen since earlier this year.
I think that is about it for now.  Everyone stay safe and warm in this crazy weather.

Hugs and Stitches.
