Happy New Year!!!

What a crazy holiday season! :) We've put over 1,000 miles on the car the past week! We went to my inlaws for a quick Christmas celebration the Tuesday before Christmas. Came home and celebrated Christmas at our house. The day after Christmas, well really at midnight, we hit the road and drove up to PA to visit my 92 year old grandparents.

Man, I LOVE them! :) Grandpa is having a few, growing old, issues! But overall his health is still really good. He told Grandma he needed to go to the doctor so he could do something to fix his balance! She said, "Ken, you're 92! Live with it!" As you can tell, Grandma is as spry as ever! :)

We drove home Tuesday evening at 8pm. Walked in our door at 3:00AM. The kids slept the ENTIRE way! :) Yeah, for driving at night! Wednesday morning, we took the kids back to my wonderful inlaws. DH and I hit the road for another 3 1/2 hr drive to arrive in the big beach town of Shalotte, NC. Never heard of it? That's okay, I don't really know where I am either!

But I do know I'm childless, and DH is busy with his single friend, who we are staying with! :) So that leaves me TONS of time to stitch! In the previous week, I've not even picked up a needle. That's the big negative driving at night! I can't see to stitch! We'll head home on Saturday. And kids start school on Monday!

We've had a wonderful Christmas break, hope you have too!

When life slow down, and I get back to real life, I'll post some pictures! :) And tell you some stories of life with two 90 year olds! It's hilarious!

Happy New Year! I'm hoping to stitch in the new year, hope you are too!

Sara, you are so fortunate to still have your grandparents to enjoy. What a treasure! Sounds like a wonderful Christmas even if you were 'road warriors'. Enjoy your mini vacation at the beach while I have perfect stitching weather - a foot of new snow!
Happy New Year!

I feel tired just thinking of all that travelling. You are lucky to be able to stitch while travelling. I get awful car sick. Have a wonderful New Year with lots of stitching.

Happy New Year to you, Sara! Thanks for taking on the challenge of the Friendship RR - look how many lives have been brought together because of your willingness to give. Hope you have a blessed year!
