A wintery heirloom


I FINALLY finish page 1 on my HAED project!!! It has taken 64.5 hours and 7440 stitches to finish this page. I was so excited. I put the final stitch in about 12:30 AM on Sunday. I made a decision that I wasn't going to bed until I finished it!

On a more personal note. DH and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary on Wednesday. We made a decision not to get each other gifts....however I was in Wal-mart and found a Chris Daughtry CD that DH mentioned he wanted so I picked it up for him. He bought me a new Wii game!!! I know they are not very exciting gifts..but I am going on a couple of vacations this year and DH is planning ot play in several golf tournaments plus another trip to Vegas while I am in Disney. We both ignored the no gifts rule however, we both got something we wanted!! My new Wii game is "Night at the Museum- Battle at the Smithsonian" It is a game where you go through the museum solving puzzles. Tonight we went to dinner and enjoyed an evening out.
