The festivities...

In what seems like a short moment; lots of happiness is enjoyed with family friends, along with laughter and good food..too much good food..even perfect winter weather.. None of the above was missing...

Christmas Eve and Émilie gets her gift from Grand-mère and grand-père.How do you get into this? Oh wow! I rock!
Even at 2o years old... Amy still looks forward to her gifts from "Gram" and "Gramp"And Laurène and Ariane are surprised because I turly believe they would never think grand-mère was in the new teck age and would know about a Nintendo DS
As long as they don't ask grand-mère and Grand-père to set it up.... Christmas day....everyone has arrived!the house comes alive with love and laughter...the oldest daughter.. "Yvelle" and Timmythe second daughter, "Liette" and DavidAnd the youngest son... "Adrien" and Monique... their first Christmas as husband and wife...
Grand-mère gets a surprise too.. from Amy and Émilie; a generaous gift certificate from??? where else??? would bring on that smile...
Cotton Quilt Charm Shoppe...It is my understanding that a little Elf named Kelly was very helpful... and even met my daughter Liette via phone

So now it is time to come down from all the chaocolate and the Christmas treats and get down to business. I have completed all my December projects and will post them shortly. I have seen a few finished projects on the Charming Girls' blogs but I may have missed some so could you leave me a comment here that you have posted your finished projects and I will visit and put your names in the draw for one of two $25.00 gift certificate from Cotton Charm Quilt Shoppe. Kelly will be hosting the January Charming Girls' Club so start planning your New Year's projects. I look forward to what she has in store for us.....
