Party #1 on Christmas Eve, 2010: Celebrating Christmas at home with our children and their families.
I love the inventive way my hubby wraps gifts. On this one he used a leftover piece of yarn I had left on the wrapping table.
He and I opened gifts to each other before all the company arrived.
DIL's enthusiastic response to one of her gifts.
This quilt is for our daughter. She knew about it long ago, in fact she picked out the fabrics; I've been working on it for 3 or more years. It was a surprise to her that it is actually (almost) done.. and that the quilting was done absolutely beautifully by a master quilter/friend of mine. I still need to get the binding done. I put it off 'til the last week, and then got sick, so it didn't get done.

As you can see, we were cheerful and happy and had a good time.
The favorite gift was probably that Student Thesaurus. And I am the Queen of England.
