Well my mother's surgery went well and she is recovering in the hospital. Today she has a bit of a fever so she will probably be in for a couple more days until they can get that under control. The doctor didn't think it was cancerous, but has sent the tumor in to be tested just in case.

In quilting news I have just gotten back the first of three quilts that Judy is quilting for me. It is gorgeous. I will post some pictures as soon as I get it bound. I can't wait to see what she does with the other two quilts that she has. I have been making Christmas quilty things like a fiend lately and will post some pictures later this afternoon.

I have been listening to Air 1 a Christian radio station and they have this bit about one familie's tradition of the Christmas elf that comes on Christmas eve and puts a new pair of pj's on the porch for everyone. I think this is a cute idea and I picked up a new pair of pj's for each of the kids today while at Costco. I am thinking of changing the tradition though and doing pillowcases instead. This year I could make Abbie a cute crib sheet since she is too young for a pillowcase. I'll let you know what I decide. I can't quite believe that Christmas is only a week away!

Settling down

Well things are starting to settle down around here. The tree is decorated, all that is left is to put away the boxes. Most of the shopping is done as well as most of the wrapping. I have not been doing much quilty stuff lately but that is because I have been working on projects for gifts. Thankfully most of the big stuff is done I just have a couple little things left that would be nice to give but aren't imperative.

My mom is having surgery tomorrow for a tumor on her kidney. The doctors beleive that the tumor is benign but all of your positive thoughts and prayers would be greatly appreciated. Hopefully she will have an uneventful surgery and a speedy recovery.

My husband is out of town on business again. It's alot of work, but we are into a bit of a routine and things are going pretty smoothly. The only thing that scares me about having him out of town is what if something happens to me. The kids are too little to call for help and it could be a day or more before someone misses me enough to come looking for me. The thought of the kids being on their own like that is a nightmare. I guess I just need to pick a person and check in with them every day so that they at least will know that something is wrong if they don't get their daily call.

Well I need to go to bed now tomorrow is going to be a busy day.
