    Smile What was your first gift of the season?

    Good Morning and Merry Christmas! What a great surprise I got from my sister! Fifteen fat quarters. My sister has a unique talent for picking out the best, most interesting and fun fat quarters. What a way to start off the new year also!!!!!!!! I have a week to look at, feel, decide what I will do with these fat quarters. And the day hasn't even started yet. I am heading to Caribou's to meet her for coffee. She is putting some Bailey's Irish Cream in her pocket and we are going to talk, reminisce and just enjoy ourselves before the day starts. Hope your day is as wonderful as mine is going to be! Edie

    Well, I was surprised, and shocked DH got me a 'healthy' gift certificate to my LQS, it could pay for next years retreat with monies left over or I could get lots and lots of goodies.
    Merry Christmas to all!

    My daughter bought me two Tutto sewing machine bags! I have looked at Tutto many times, but felt the price was too much for me right now. My daughter bought me two sizes for different machines, in bright purple. Wow, was I surprised!

    I got a 2 year subscription to "Love of Quilting" magazine from DH because each month I've been scrambling to JoAnn's to get the newest copy as there was something in it I liked and might like to try. :-) I can hardly wait for the first issue to arrive! :-)

    Something money cannot buy! My grandson (he will be 2 on Dec, 31) was playing quietly on the floor while I was talking with my son-in-law, he got up, came to me, gave me a big kiss on the cheek and went back to play. Tears of joy came to my eyes, a moment I will never forget.

    My first gift was hugs and kisses from my 2 grandkids and then they gave me their school pictures of each of them. Priceless to me. After that came the gift cards for the local fabric store!!!

    I got my first Christmas present a week early - I was baptised last Sunday and I've been celebrating Christmas all week! Midnight mass was my second Christmas present - a little bit of heaven on earth!

    Congratulations!!! I am going to be a grandmother for the 14th time in June. It is just as exciting the 14th time as it is the first time. Each one is special.

    Never look down on anyone, unless you are helping them up.

    I live on a small ranch where we have gates to open every time you drive out. Climbing out of the car to open them; back in to drive through; then back out to close them; back in to go on your way.........gets very difficult when my legs don't want to work well. This year, my children bought a "mule gate" for my first Christmas gift.

    What's a mule gate you ask? On my car visor I have a button...just like the garage door openers button except it opens the gate for me!!!!! This is a wonderful gift for seniors. I love my kids and their surprise gift!

    Hope everyone's day was as wonderful as mine. Merry Holidays!
