My son, Riley, & his kids were here for almost a week during Christmas break.
I only get to see them about once a year so we
pack in the fun!
We played on the frozen Ennis Lake....here are Elli & Amy "fake" skating - so beautiful...
We go on a hike every New Year's Eve - it's a tradition now...
We take the same picture on the same log every year - it was so dang cold this year!
While my grandson, Adam, serenades us on the guitar, the two girls and I went for a stroll through my fabric stash.
(is he so cute???)
They wanted to make their very first quilt and we had plenty of indoor time.
I dumped my stash on the living room floor and the
color sorting began!
Amy got a little bored with the whole thing so she took some time out to go up the hill behind our home on the 4-wheeler....she's a tough one, that Amy!
(she said this is her tough face)
She did get her blocks cut out....maybe grandma will finish it?
Elli stuck with the whole quilt making thing....
she loves using my Janome, especially the button that cuts the thread.
This girl - she worked non-stop on her quilt for 3 days - she even quilted it herself on my BIG machine!
She said it was a bit intimidating, but she's always
up for a challenge.
She quilted all-over loops and signed her name in a corner.
All finished - she never let go! It's so pretty.
I love her color choices.
The last photo of this wonderful crew before they headed home - oh, how I love you all....
