More adorableness! This gingerbreadman chart was a freebie that I came across from Cross Stitch Happy. Luckily I had the perfect piece of Christmas Green Jobelan in a scrap bag, and it was finished in almost no time. Oh - and I switched in a Crescent Colours thread (Old Oak) for the DMC 436.
And yes, I did reach my goal of mailing five Christmas cards yesterday. Sent christmas cards to:
a) Two of Dave's boyhood friends that send us photos and cards every year without fail. I really think that the guys write the letters, not the wives, and I think that's awesome. I love Dave, but he would be completely incapable of that.
b) My best friend from high school
c) My best friend from elementary school
d) The friends we visited in SC this past summer.
And today folks, I sent out two more. One to a friend that I went to college with, and another to a friend of Dave's, whose wife definately writes the letters. Look out, I'm on a roll.
Johnny called to say that he got the cookies I mailed him and that not a single one was broken. And that they were delicious. How that kid can put down three dozen cookies in one day....It's a good thing he runs a gazillion miles each day. I sent him our household favorite - chocolate chips. I threw in some of those pretzel/kiss/ peanut M&M treats for fun. And his Christmas favorite, Peanut butter Kisses.
My favorites aren't that sweet. My grandmother used to make cookies called Kiffles, and they weren't particularly sweet. Kind of like apricot horns, if you know what I mean. I could eat those like popcorn. You guys must have some favorites, too?
