Brutus on My Head

My mom gave me a box to open.  She said it was from Aimee who works at our quilt store.  So I opened it.  You will never believe this...

Haaa...I LOVE it!!!! Thank you Aimee.  I never had Brutus on my head before.

Dinner with my Big Brother

Tonight I went to my big brother's apartment for dinner.

It is really nice. He even has a real Christmas tree. 

He has a big screen tv and he let me watch the Disney channel.

Julie made dinner. It was really good.  She cut up carrots for us to eat with our pizza. My favorite.

If you look really close you might see a few quilty things from our store.  Well it is time for me to go home. My mom came to pick me up.  TJ is doing laundry in his new washing machine. 

On the way home my mom said she had somewhere she wanted to take me.  We stopped in front of this house and all of a sudden the lights started dancing.  It was really cool.  Watch this...

A Day in My Life

So I thought I would show you what I did today. 

First I had some mail waiting for me when I got to the store.  I love mail.

Look at this cute card. It is from Michelle in Tempe, Arizona. She follows our blogs. Hi Michelle!!

Look at this card. "Mom," I said in my are you kidding me voice. "You never told me I could have my picture taken with Minnie and Mickey Mouse for our Christmas card." And now I am kinda mad at you.

But it is so cute I could not stay mad for long.  It is from sweet Ella.  She is my little friend who was really sick this year with cancer.  We hate cancer. But she is doing so much better now!!!

Then I had a package waiting for me from one of our customers.

Wow!!! Look how cute this is.  It even has an S for Sarah. Hey that's me.  Thank you Cathi.  I love it!!!

I decided I better model it so everyone can see how cute it is.  I am going to put my cell phone and ipod in it.  Haaa look how well it matched the outfit I picked out to wear today. It's perfect.

Then I had to go upstairs to my new desk.  Do you know I have my very own desk and computer now.

I am suppose to be working. But today the rest of the office left for a holiday luncheon. So I decided I was going to watch Disney on Ice videos on You Tube instead. I am really super smart when it comes to finding videos to watch.  Ok see ya later.

Celebrating Ashton

This is a video about Ashton.  It was her shining moment where she showed the world how awesome she is.

Ashton is fighting for her life tonight. The doctors are not giving her family much hope. Prayers are needed for their strength and for a miracle. Keep fighting my friend.

From the Jar to the Card

I opened a Christmas card today.  It is from a really nice family.

This year they have three boys in the picture.  But next year...

Katie will go from being on the jar to being on the card.  That is exciting!!!  And today they got some really good news.  Their dossier has been delivered in Katie's country.  Which means they will be traveling soon to see her. 

Oh do you see the jar. Remember when I was counting money a few weeks ago.  Well look at the jar already. It is almost full again. And there is more green money too.  Thanks to our wonderful customers.  You can help too by going to their blog and making a donation if you can.

Hoppin' Across the World

A package arrived...

all the way from South Africa.  Really?

Looks like it went through London too.  I wonder if the new Princess saw it:)

Look at this!!! It even had to clear customs. 

I wonder what is in here?

OMG!!!  It has big ears.  And a really cute hat.

Can you believe it!!!  This bunny hopped all the way across the world. Even the ocean.

Seriously. How cute is this!!!  Floppy and Hoppy. I named them.

They are going to be just perfect for our display in the front room.  Want to see...

The bunnies have been sweetly stitched by Leigh-Ann & Bev in the same fabric we have.  All the way over in Johannesburg, South Africa. Thank you.
