A New Week Begins!

I have not posted anything recently because I have been swamped with things to do between taking our trip to Chicago, celebrating my hubby's birthday and getting settled back into my routine now that we are home.  Let me just say we had a wonderful time in Chicago visiting with Jason's cousin (he has not seen since he was 6) and her husband.  We had sooo much fun enjoying the food and shopping together.  Here is my favorite picture of my hubby and his cousin.
After returning from our travels I got right back to painting the infamous cabinet doors for our kitchen.  I also got lured away this past Friday by my mother-in-law.  We spent the entire day embroidering Old World Santa's for some Christmas pillows.  We are now on the hunt for just the right fabric and trims to complete the project.  As you will see below, the embroideries turned out aaamazzzing! We loved them sooo much that we decided that we need to add some projects to use these Santa's on.  I am definitely going to make hubby and I some new stockings to hang on the fireplace mantel this year and I just may have to have a few more pillows too!  I keep reminding myself that I don't have to make everything I want this year; I can add new designs each year.  I am not sure how successful I will be at convincing myself of this. :)  
Hope that all fellow bloggers are having as much fun as I am getting into the holiday spirit!
