Happy Hanukkah!!

Wow did that creep up on me! I survived the Thanksgiving festivities and now my plans are underway for our Hanukkah Celebration on Saturday.  We will have another 19 guests in our home so the cooking and cleaning starts all over again.  I also had to finish up my shopping.  We celebrate with a gift each night so I had to shop for and wrap 40 gifts not including nieces, nephews, etc.  You know the drill.  I usually have everything done by Thanksgiving but I was caught up in some stitching.  Needless to say, I put the stitching down for a while to get ready for Thanksgiving and haven't started back up yet!  Oh how I miss my stitching.  I am hoping to spend all of next week in my stitching chair once this party is out of the way.  For those of you also caught up in the madness of preparations don't forget to carve out a little time for yourselves.  I'll be back with pics real soon!  Happy Stitching!

A very Happy Hanukkah from our household to yours!

Our family Hanukkah celebration isn't until next Saturday, so I have a few days to recoup from Thanksgiving. However, Hubby and I opened our gifts last night......I would do eight, but I can't do that and do Christmas too! (I'm Jewish, Hubby's not so we do both!)

Enjoy your party!
