This is How We Do It

The Give-Away Girls have made it to their new homes.
Well two out of three ain't bad. Ginny, on the right, and Gertrude, on the left, have found their new homes. I thought I'd share with you how they are doing.

The Stitching Nut says of Ginny:
"I got Chicken Ginny and I adore her. Altho, she looks very much like the "Partridge in a Pear Tree" and not a chicken, LOL. Must be the bling & clothes she's wearing, huh?"

Ellen says of Gertrude:
I just wanted to tell you again how much I have enjoyed having Gertrude here. She has been perched under our Christmas tree since we put it up. All went well until Christmas Eve when we have all of our family gathering here for fun and festivities, not to mention good food and all that goes with the Season. Well, not usually one to Tell Tales, but she got so many compliments that put the rest of the tree inhabitants to shame....and I fear all of the attention has quite gone to her wee head. She is refusing to leave her spot and we have had a number of discussions on Humility, Piousness, and Agreeableness. I have told her that when I take the tree down, pack everything away, she will not be included in the boxing up, but, as I told you, be a Presence in my Room. This seems to mollify her, and I am hoping for the best. The best meaning that she will go sweetly into the back room and rule her roost there. She has really been quite peevish! And may I add, has exhibited an aura of superiority. I have quietly suggested to her that beauty is only skin deep and ugly goes clear to the bone. I can tell that she is considering this possibility. I think that we may, after all, have a smooth transition in the long run.

And look, LOOK! At this fabulous thing that my MIL got me for the holidays. A mini iron! Yee-haw this thing will sure come in handy for seams and little sewing projects. Yay for me! We had a great time at the in-laws on Sat night with the Hubby's parents, both brothers and their ladies (wife + fiancee). The munchikins made out like bandits, again. An ant farm, a seamonster growing kit from the smithsonian, awesome handpainted building shapes, a rock tumbler, lots of goody bath soaps, bubbles and girlie body sprays. The Hubby and I got a vaccuum sealer for the kitchen, some handmade soap, pumpkin butter(!), and a turkey fryer - not for turkey - for boiling down sap for syrup in the spring. Homemade maple syrup for all next Xmas!

Wishing you all a fabulous 2007!
