The food was so delicious and plentiful, the cards were special, and the gifts were beautiful! Here's a taste of our time together:
Prezzie Time: Rhonda recieved some beautiful hand knit gloves from Cindy as well as a few other goodies. Jill recieved some lovely place mats hand-sewn by Sarah, and Sarah recieved a gorgeous quilt that Rhonda made her! I had Cindy in the draw this year and I made her a table topper specifically for her bright and cheery kitchen. I'm so glad she liked it!
And now for my present...this deserves a post all on it's own, but I won't hold you in suspense! Jill had me in the draw this year and I am still overwhelmed by the beauty of the gift she made me. This is an advent/family tradition calendar of sorts. It is a flip style book that has a page for every day of December. Jill decorated each page individually and it's all ready for me to add pictures of our family traditions. I have never seen this before and I instantly fell in love with it! I love anything paper crafted and this gift is so special to me! I think I will have to make a few of these for future gifts. Jill put so much love and effort into this gift, and that in itself is such a special part of the gift. So, thank you Jill. This is one of the most beautiful, and meaningful, gifts I have ever recieved.
Thanks Ladies...for one of our best memories yet made!
