Hanging In There

Processed with VSCOcam

Our beautiful Mia is 14 today. I can hardly believe it. She is becoming a very special, sweet, kind and funny young woman, right before my eyes. Here she is opening one of my gifts to her, Urban Ears coral headphones. I love the color. I also got her some really cool leggings in a great print.

We had dinner at a Japanese restaurant, her choice. I love a girl who can eat and she can eat. She still had room for some Peppermint Mud Pie.

She and Miles raced to see who could pull out the most candles and lick the ice cream!

Here are the two of them waiting for cake. Miles has a fork mustache.

I have been busy finishing my Christmas shopping, doing Christmas cards, decorating and cleaning the house to prepare for the PDX SAQA holiday lunch here tomorrow.

I am almost ready to post the fabrics that I have available for sale, but I have to get through tomorrow, first.

Thought I would share this pretty Christmas Card that we received from the White House yesterday.

    When I think back to the days when I was new to reading blogs and Steph’s was one of my favorites. Watching M & M grow up to be such wonderful young adults is a great joy. Mia is so beautiful and I know that beauty is in her soul as well. Have fun tomorrow! (I am crossing my fingers that I get a card from the WH again this year. What a beautiful card!!!) Cheers!
