3 gorgeous gifts

We had a wonderful weekend visiting family. My older daughter was so well behaved. She made it through late night parties, lunch in a restaurant and a trip to visit her very ill great-grandmother. I am so proud to be her mom. As a stay at home mom (for now) I sometimes feel inferior around my career oriented friends. But watching my 2 year old behave so well reminds me that I couldn't be doing anything else. And the baby was just a doll - slept, ate and didn't want to be put down for a second.
I couldn't ask for anything more.

We received a beautiful gift from one of my husband's co-workers. This pretty little quilt is hand quilted with tiny, perfect stitches that I will never be able to achieve in my quilts. I am so touched by the thought and effort that went into this quilt.

You have the most gorgeous girls ever! And remember - a job is what you DO - it's not who you ARE! And you will ALWAYS be a mum and that's the best job in the world!

Do you actually eat the gingerbread houses?

Happy Christmas!
