January 2010

We got a treat early this year!!! Mom and Vicky came to Oklahoma City for the OKC Winter Quilt Show. That way she gets to see most of my kids, my grandkids, and Debbie & her son!!! They stayed at the Renaissance Oklahoma City Convention Hotel in downtown OKC. Debbie, Hayden & Betty drove up from Dallas. Alyssa, Justin, and the grandkids drove up from Ada, and Mike and Anna drove up from Norman!

Here is a pic from the lobby.

Alyssa took this pic from our room's peep hole.

Mom got upgraded to a Suite and this was the view from our balcony!
This is looking North East

Vicky is adding binding on a quilt in the hotel room...man this women is fast!!!
This part of the suite had a hide-a-bed that was actually comfortable!

The bedroom part of the suite.

We were on the 11th floor. This is a view looking down

This is another view. This hotel has 15 floors.

The view from pointing the camera straight up to the ceiling!

Here is another Christmas card I made

I made these boxes for little ornaments that I bought from Michael's. I got the tutorial for the boxes from Angie at Chicnscratch. She has a ton of tutorials on YouTube.

My Daughter-In-Law Alyssa and I ate at Shiki's Japanese Restaurant and then went Christmas shopping! Alyssa took the pics in the restaurant with her cell phone.

Love their food!

We went to the local Party store & nabbed some pics of Alyssa!

My Christmas tree....easy to put up, easy to take down!!!

Well, we got our White Christmas! 14 inches of it!!!

They had a 50 car pile up by Tinker Air Force Base. And Amber & Marcus came up to OKC to visit and was stuck in the Norman traffic 6 miles from their destination for 8 hours, due to a semitruck jack-knifing.

And here are the backs of the coats! They love them!!!

We celebrated Christmas a couple days after Christmas because of the weather with Justin, Alyssa and the kids. Michael came up to Edmond before Christmas because he had to work, so he got his gifts early.

But we are Blessed and Thankful for being able to celebrate it with family & friends!
