Christmas is...

OFFICIALLY OVER! WOOOHOOOO! Party at the Maxman house!

Dont get me wrong - I love Christmas and all - but dang. Doing three Christmas celebrations on Christmas Day as well as figuring out everyone's gift? Yeah, its alot of brain power going into it. Not to mention A TON of woman hours going into this year... Y'all ready??

So, if you remember, Jocilin was helping me with her quilt - until it was time for borders...

Just a memory refresher...

FINALLY has borders!

Warm & Fuzzy

Justine - AKA - Toad was also the lucky recipient of a quilt from Dear Ol' Sis...

Toad <3s her new blankie!

The Nephews fared well too...

Lucky Michael!
Notice the Lizards above? He started naming them after he opened his blankie! <3

...3! ...2! ...1! ... BLAST OFF

Mathew's Space Loot!

What else could there be, you ask? Well, kids, we are just getting started!

For Sister Sarah a new hand-bag

Mom fared fairly well too - even with her silly remarks -- a little background... Way back at the begining of December, I made a comment about makin a list and checkin it twice on my FB page. Well, my mom, being the silly that she is, stated that all she wanted was a crayon roll, a marker roll, and a colored pencil roll with a matching carrying case... Well, ask and ye shall recieve!

Louisa, Ali, Cameron & Cadence all scored new purses...
Perfect for little hands, if I do say so myself!

As to why they are sideways - WHO KNOWS!  But they sure are cute!

And of course, Justine sure is lucky I love her! I took most of an entire day
 that I had dedicated to finishing my projects
(which didnt get done until THREE AM CHRISTMAS MORNING!)
to help with hers - they did come out aweful cute...

So, I think that covers the Christmas crafting with the exception of ONE project that needs to be photographed.

I hope everyone's Christmas was cheery and bright!

*Did you hear the bells...?*

Its Raining! Its pouring! The old man is snoring! Okay, he isnt snoring, he is watching football. Blech. If you know me, you know how I feel about professional football. If you dont know me - FYI - I LOATHE professional football. While he snores away watches football, I sew or read or bake. Today it was all three. Ive been blog hopping. And sewing Christmas gifts. And baking. This one is YUMMY and simple! Rachel of p.s. I quilt shared the recipe for Rainy Day S'mores

Happy Rainy Day!

Whos and Whoville

So, another blog hop is happening. Today is day THREE (you can still join in Henry Glass Fabrics has all the details!). I love these things. I learn SOO much. One of my favorite Christmas time movies is The Grinch *yes* this is a relevant fact! Jacquelynne over at The Noble Wife posted a pattern for a pin cushion - SOOO CUTE! She also admitted to being a "recovering perfectionist" - does that not describe me or what!? She also said that she could see little Whos singing around the tree (pin cushion) in Whoville. This year, Adrianne sat on Mommy's lap to watch The Grinch on tv. She swayed in time with the Whos singing and giggled at the Grinch. I hope that Adrianne is not nearly as (yes, Im going to say it!) particular about things as I am. The Whos give such a phenominal example. It doesnt take THINGS to make Christmas great - all it takes is love and having each other.
