(Look how cute we are, and notice my lovely crochet beanie!)
Christmas day was probably the best! We slept in and then opened presents from each other. I was so excited for my DH to finally open the quilt that I made him. I originally started this as a baby blanket and when he saw it, he requested that I make it large enough for our bed. So I did, but he thought I was still waiting to order more fabric. Then my aunt quilted it for me. She does a fantastic job and she is so sweet to do it for me. I just kept it hidden for three months and every time he asked when I was going to finish it, I would say that I needed to order more fabric. I think he forgot about it, or just figured I would never finish it. He was surprised on Christmas morning. The cats loved it too!
We got our cats a pet bed. They didn't seem to excited about it, until we put it next to the space heater. Now they love it. They also got treats and new catnip toys from grandma, and toys from my sister. Noisy toys! But they love them, so I guess it is okay.
Later in the afternoon, my mom, sister, brother-in-law, and niece came over for dinner. My husband cooked, so it was super tasty. And then we opened more presents! You will never guess what my mom got for me!? Try and guess!! Okay, I'll show you. I had blogged about how I wanted to make this flower squares and wanted to get this book. Well, she got me the book and enough yarn to make the afghan. I was so surprised and excited. I can't wait to get started.
Well, that is about it. We had a super busy (extended) weekend and had lots of fun with family. I hope everyone enjoyed the Christmas season.
