    Sorry I've been absent for a bit.....I was sitting in the naughty corner for a while, got up to go potty and must have staggered....eeerrr....walked out the door. I've been staggering......uuuhhh....walking around.....getting into all sorts of things. While I was out I popped back in the house and found that our Elf Deisel had arrived. He's a weeee bit mischeivous as he tried to convince me that he new exactly where the SS box was hidden and that he had it on good authority (north pole and all that) that I could open it. In fact, he volunteered to help. Well, after he left that night I re-hid the SS box and hopefully little Mr. Snooper won't find it this time.

    So....I've managed to find my way back to the naughty corner, with my Elf Deisel firmly stuffed in my pocket (try getting out of that...hehehe).
    The trouble with Trouble is.....It usually starts out like fun!!

    Do You Hear What I Hear?
    Said the night wind to the little lamb
    Do you see what I see
    Way up in the sky little lamb
    Do you see what I see
    A star, a star
    Dancing in the night
    With a tail as big as a kite
    With a tail as big as a kite
    Said the little lamb to the shepard boy
    Do you hear what I hear
    Ringing through the sky shepard boy
    Do you hear what I hear
    A song, a song
    High above the tree
    With a voice as big as the sea
    With a voice as big as the sea
    Said the shepard boy to the mighty king
    Do you know what I know
    In your palace wall mighty king
    Do you know what I know
    A child, a child
    Shivers in the cold
    Let us bring him silver and gold
    Let us bring him silver and gold
    Said the king to the people everywhere
    Listen to what I say
    Pray for peace people everywhere
    Listen to what I say
    The child, the child
    Sleeping in the night
    He will bring us goodness and light
    He will bring us goodness and light
    The child, the child
    Sleeping in the night
    He will bring us goodness and light

    Up on the House Top.
    Up on the housetop
    Reindeer pause,
    Out jumps good old Santa Claus.
    Down thru’ the chimney
    With lots of toys,
    All for the little ones,
    Christmas joys.
    Ho, ho, ho!
    Who wouldn’t go!
    Ho, ho, ho!
    Who wouldn’t go!
    Up on the housetop,
    Click, click, click,
    Down thru’ the chimney
    With good Saint Nick.
    First comes the stocking
    Of little Nell,
    Oh, dear Santa
    Fill it well;
    Give her a dolly
    That laughs and cries
    One that will open
    And shut her eyes.
    Ho, ho, ho!
    Who wouldn’t go!
    Ho, ho, ho!
    Who wouldn’t go!
    Up on the housetop,
    Click, click, click,
    Down thru’ the chimney
    With good Saint Nick.
    Next comes the stocking
    Of little Will,
    Oh just see
    What a glorious fill
    Here is a hammer
    And lots of tacks,
    Also a ball
    And a whip that cracks.
    Ho, ho, ho!
    Who wouldn’t go!
    Ho, ho, ho!
    Who wouldn’t go!
    Up on the housetop,
    Click, click, click,
    Down thru’ the chimney
    With good Saint Nick.

    So when is the time decision going to be made? HUH????? Nancia is planning to come to my house to open them together, but we need to make plans, according to the designated time.

    Also, I need to know when to have the cookie platter ready.

    Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.
    Rocking around the Christmas Tree
    at the Christmas party hop
    Mistletoe hung where you can see
    Every couple tries to stop
    Rocking around the Christmas Tree
    Let the Christmas Spirit ring
    Later we’ll have some pumpkin pie
    and we’ll do some caroling
    You will get a sentimental feeling
    When you hear voices singing
    “Let’s be jolly; Deck the halls
    with boughs of holly”
    Rocking around the Christmas Tree
    Have a happy holiday
    Everyone’s dancing merrily
    In a new old fashioned way
    You will get a sentimental feeling
    When you hear voices singing
    “Let’s be jolly; Deck the halls
    with boughs of holly”
    Rocking around the Christmas Tree
    Have a happy holiday
    Everyone’s dancing merrily
    In a new old fashioned way

    I have been keeping myself super busy trying to stay out of trouble.

    Is everyone just Too Too Excited? I sure am! We are so dang close now girls. I can't believe this is going so fast.

    My power went out for five hours today because of the high winds and rain.(Well everyone's in my part of the north valley anyway.) It gave me time pick up and fold up fabrics to put away. Now just to find a place to put them. LOL. I will have a straight and clean sewing room for christmas. How fun is that? It usually doesn't happen until well after christmas.

    Sulabug, grab your coupons & SS package, hop a plane & you'll be here in time to join us! You know you're always welcome at my house! Anybody else in the DFW area, we're meeting at 10:30 a.m. at Thomas's Sewing Center in Mesquite. Joann's is just a few doors down. Lots of restaurants for us to choose from for lunch. Just send me a PM to let me know you're joining us, all are welcome! We'd love to meet others from the board.

    Finished 9 quilted stockings today for a community service project my daughter is doing. Have 2 table runner/hot pad sets to make for christmas gifts, and a kindle and Ipad covers. Hopefully I can get a top or two done to hand quilt on since I have to pack up all my fabric for a move. Not sure how long after I can get it all set up again, so at least I will have hand quilting to do until my machine is ready to go again!!

    If we do it 8pm Eastern, that would still be early enough for the rest of us.

    Happy tails-- I'm sorry, too! We're having more than enough fun for the three of us. Wish you lived closer,but you would still have to live with snow here! Know you don't like that. But you are always welcome!! Can't remember did you get a box that jingles?

    Who has a box that jingles? Has anyone not rec'd a box yet??
