Yesterday, we actually braved the after Christmas sales and went to a couple of stores. There were plenty of crowds, but nothing too bad and the lines moved quickly. Zach wanted to spend the couple of gift cards he received. :)
So, my friend Peggy had a new post on her blog called "The Week Between." What are your plans for the week between Christmas and the New Year? I'm hoping to lay low as much as possible and enjoy the quiet, more relaxed days. I do have some quilting related goals though...1) put the finishing touches on my Whirl into Winter Blog giveaway (check back 1/1 for more info!), 2) put the final border on my log cabin/churn dash quilt so I can send it to the quilter, 3) figure out how to make a shower curtain from quilt blocks! If any of you have any tips for that, I'd love to hear 'em! I've seen a couple of pictures and I don't think it should be too difficult...I'll keep you posted on my progress.
In the meantime, I thought I'd share some pictures of Zach making our traditional Christmas morning cinnamon rolls. I make the dough in the bread machine and assemble them sometime on Christmas Eve, then I pop them in the refrigerator and they are ready to cook whenever we are ready to eat Christmas morning. This year, Zach got into the assembly process and just took right over...I like that!! Left me free for picture taking! He said, "Are you going to put these on your blog?" Well, of course, dear! :)
Rolling out the dough and spreading out the butter....
