A Copasetic Christmas, Carol

What a fun Saturday! I did a little sewing today. I finally got the tree up, and even wrapped a few presents. I used to love wrapping presents, but as the years have gone by, it has begun to lose its appeal. So I felt very pleased with myself to be able to use these quilted gift bags that I made right after Christmas last year. Easy peasy! And they are re-useable many times over. I'm feeling quite happy with this wrapping method. I have several more to use, and will need to wrap only a few in paper this year.

Tonight we went to a concert. We took our two kids and their SO's out for dinner and then to "A Copasetic Christmas Carol" performed by Doug Haining and the Twin Cities Seven. They are a local jazz group who is doing pretty well (every once in a while I hear them on the radio) AND their founding guy, Doug Haining, is my second cousin! He doesn't appear in this picture; it was really hard to get a clear picture without using my flash. The pictures where he appears were all very fuzzy.

Anyway, we had a good time with our kids and their special friends, the food was good, the music was great. I'm feeling pleased with my life at the moment. I wish the same for my dear readers.

I like the idea of the quilted gift bags. I hate wrapping myself. When my daughter was living at home we would bribe her to do all the wrapping. Her brothers would even talk her into wrapping her own present!
