It's been a long time in between posts for me. I had a wonderful Christmas break with the family. It was the first time in a long time that I was able to enjoy myself and not worry about what I needed to get done. My brother in-law Todd and his wife Shan were so nice to let us crash their house for a week and a half. We had good food, great parties and unbeatable movie nights in Todd's theater room. My mom took me to the Fabric Center to pick out fabric for my Christmas gift this year. Each year she has made a quilt for one of her children and it's finally my year. I have waited 7 years for this, but just because I am number 7 in the line up. I can't wait to get it, my bed has needed a new quilt on it for some time, but I have yet to make myself a quilt. I picked out fabrics from Simple Abundance by Bonnie and Camille. Gorgeous line! I was able to go to my uncles funeral, it was a sweet experience and I got to see a lot of cousin's I haven't seen in a long time. My sister Abby did my hair, it looks very similar to what I did here, but we put in a little more red! It was overall the best week and I am so glad we took time off to go up to Salt Lake.
Oh, and the best part about being up there was when I was brushing Lili's hair one night and she looked up at me and said "Mom, I am going to love you forever!" I just looked down at her and started to cry, then she said "Yeah, I was thinking about that." These little moments make being a mom the best job out there.
Last but not least is my "Green Fairy" doll. My sweet mother-in-law bought this doll several months ago and gave it to me as a Christmas gift. The doll is so beautiful and it was such a thoughtful gift. Now I have a "green fairy" to look at every day. The doll needs a name, so that's where I need some help. I want to name the doll and then I will use that name for an up and coming design. Any suggestions would be welcome. Leave a comment with your suggestion and the person's whose name I pick will be sent some prizes from me, aka the Green Fairy!
Thanks to everyone for making 2009 a successful year for Clint and me, and here's to 2010 and all it will bring! Now I definitely have to get back to work!
