NEW GRANDSON!

Our new grandson, Eli, was born on December 7.  Here is a picture of him with his other GM.  It looks like he's trying to figure out what she's talking about.  Tomorrow we will go to see him and spend about a week there helping out.  Can't wait!


I made these cute angel ornaments from a pattern I got from the Dutch Sisters.  You can get the free pattern here.
I've been busy baking cookies to take with us, making lefse,  getting presents ready, etc.  We'll be with Eli's family for a week, then will go to Florida to be with DS#2 & family for Christmas & Abigail's 2nd birthday.  So we've got lots of presents ready to pack: new baby gifts, Christmas, birthdays, etc.

I think I told DH that I wasn't going to get any more doll beds to fix up, but I couldn't resist a vintage set of doll beds at a garage sale.  They can be set up as bunk beds and have wicker type sides.  I didn't take a picture of them yet.  I also got a really nice wood doll cradle.

In case I don't post again before Christmas, I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!
