(Don't pay any attention to the dates on these pictures--Wayne's camera chooses the dates and usually they're no where near the actual date.)
We took off from the boat and landed right on the boat again. Other than them lowering us down and dipping our feet in the ocean, we didn't get wet.
I do confess I had one moment of WHAT AM I DOING? when the one guy was helping us on the boat and told me not to sit on the parachute as it was made of tissue paper.
So I'll be boring you in the next few days (or weeks) with pictures from Maui, our Anniversary and Christmas.
It's good to be home, but someone needs to tell my body to get with it!

I'll be taking a leave from my blog until after Christmas. Hope you miss me!
(The kiss was Wayne's idea........he said that's where this all started.)
More of those little Gathering Hearts on the wall. I really like the looks of the two pastel bedrooms...they seem so restful. Not very masculine, but restful. The third bedroom suits the guys more.
Well, that leaves two bedrooms. They are about 15'x15', so I can really pack in the quilts! Right now with the freezing rain and cold temps, we need more quilts!!!!

It was a fun day and in spite of the roads not being perfect we had over 50 people come. The first picture shows the gift I gave out - a little decorated notebook and testamints.
On my dining room table is "Home Sweet Home", the very first pattern I designed.
I don't think anyone knew that this woolie wasn't done! On the other end is another set of gifts that I had just started the blanket stitching. (Now you all know)
We had people from Albert Lea, Alden, Kiester, Wells, Bricelyn, Frost, Blue Earth, and Fairmont all in Minnesota and Lakota, Ledyard, and Buffalo Center in Iowa. It really was a fun time!!!

(Bet you can't guess which picture was taken at our home!)

Our daughter, Jill, has been busy making mittens out of recycled wool sweaters! I love the combinations she has put together! They look so nice and warm! And "NO!" I don't need snow to test them out!
I would have a hard time picking out a favorite pair! Today she is hosting the "kin" to a kringla and cookie making party: cousin Denise, sister Janeen, sister-in-law Karen, nieces Morgan and Karissa and great-neice Vivvi. Wish I was there to at help sample!!
