Last Christmas at the country house for the Roans?

This Christmas, Justin and I travelled to Nacogdoches to spend some extra time with his parents and the family. It hit us right before Christmas dinner that this might be the last time that this house will see Christmas for the Roan family. They are getting ready to put the house up for sale to move into town and build a new shiney home.

See the pretty antiques that Mary collects, she has ultimate taste and an eye for things pretty. Manuel and Pat (Mary's brother and sister) joined in for the feast. Yummy! We ate way too much and took more home for Justin to pig out on.

Merry Christmas!!

Wish her well and pray for a safe return. Her blog updates are simply amazing and inspiring. You really should read.

Another little creation

Since Traci is expecting in March, I thought it would be nice to start sewing little bitty things.
I sewed a couple of bibs, felt baby shoes, burb towels and a very small quilt.
I have lots more I want to really is quite a small bit of fun to do the small things in life too.
