Alice and Christmas socks



Spent the day playing with Alice while her parents went and got their Christmas tree and decorated-we had the very important job of supervising! I feel somewhat sad, that my mom did not live to share this first Christmas with Alice-in fact, she missed her birth all together. This is such a beloved child by all of us - we all feel so lucky she is such a happy baby and in our lives.
So- here is today's photo of miss Alice Wonderful...busy playing..and socks..the red one belongs to her...the others are now in the mail on their way to Texas. This week I will start decorating for Christmas and with luck may even finish a Christmas themed ufo. No, I don't mean I can finish it in a week, I mean I will work on it until Christmas! I have all the squares cut for my scrap project and that leaves many, many triangles still waiting-I think I will use the scrappy quilt project as a leaders/enders while working on the Christmas ufo...I need to feel some quilting progress being made! life has just been hectic with....life stuff.

Miss Alice Wonderful - I like that! She certainly looks like she is a happy baby and how lucky she is to have so many to love her.

She gets more beautiful ever day - I can tell by seeing all her pictures. I don't know how you can stand not to just keep her for yourself! What a beautiful little girl!

Sounds like a plan - working on a Christmas project. Do that enough Decembers and it will be finished one day. I just couldn't resist - forgive me! :-)

Need to get together in January for sure - OK? I'm sure I can find a Saturday to devote to cutting scraps!

Alice is ultra-cute. I can't believe how fast they grow. My first little grandchild is now 19 and much taller than I am. When did that happen????

Cher, she is so gorgeous. I am certain your mom is somewhere where she can take joy in Alice, as well. Just like my grandparents are watching my babies grow...
