Christmas and Max

As has come to be the course with me and my writing...there is tons to say and not very many pics if any.
The family and I had a nice Christmas, although the girls didn't get as many gifts as I would have liked. They got the Barbie Dream House that they wanted along with all the Barbies and what not. I didn't have to do much in the way of preping a feast this year...seeing as it was just the fam and I with no drop-ins. I guess that is one of the upsides of living hundreds of miles and several states from your closest relations. All the presents and well-wishing, with none of the guilt or clean-up. The best part for me was the Christmas "House" marathon and stitchfest.
In other news, there has been an injury to Max! DD#2 took him out for a walk the day before yesterday and he stepped in a hole from what we can gather. He is getting better but he is having trouble with weakness in his hind left. He doesn't seem to be having pain but it just is not
as strong as the other side. DH is taking him to the vet this morning so that we can find out what is going on with the little guy. He is mobile and eating, which is a good sign for him but I will feel so much better when I know for sure what the deal is with him
Please Pray for my Little Furrybutt!

Doing Doing??

Here I am...I know that it has been forever since I last posted, and nooooooo! I don't have any pics of Fairy Hill to post. I would but I am far to lazy to do everything that it would take to get the pics here. I did however manage to clean the kitchen, cook dinner, get the girls to bed on time and vaccum the living room. So all in all, I don't think I did too badly considering the fact that I feel like I have been run over by a very large truck. I hope that I am not coming down with anything. I CANNOT GET SICK! If I dog will starve, the kids will eat all the snacks and no dinner, DH will wander the kitchen aimlessly in search of food and ask me countless times why there isn't any and the house will be DESTROYED! So I CAN NOT GET SICK!
I am going to school with the girls today so that I can meet teachers and eat lunch 3 times.
OOOOOOOH THE JOY! I am truely hoping that the time will fly, although I have no doubt that the girls will be thrilled that mom will be there.
I also have to remember to order my fabric tomorrow and finish the angel that I have in the works for Lyn. I also hope to make it to the post office and to Michael's and the supermarket so that I can make a pie.
Now to wait for the sleep that won't come.

Hi...welcome to the land of the Stitching Mad Cow.
I had so many friends that had blogs with blogger that I decided to get another one here. Today is my youngest daughter's birthday. She is 6. We are having cake today and her party will be on Saturday.
In stitching news, here is the latest installment of Fairy Hill. Things are really progressing with this piece. I closed the bottom last night. I know it won't be long before I fill in the big pink spot in the middle .
