Day 17 and Day 18...

~ Greetings and Warm Welcome to ~

I'm combining the two weekend days because...
today I go and pick up Katie from college!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She will be home with us for 3 glorious, wonderful weeks!
With all of us here together at home.
Simple joy!

Yesterday I stitched and finishing my boys' 2016 yearly ornaments.
These have been percolating around in my brain for the last year.
2016 is the year they got their driver's license so I stitched vehicles...

Ian 2016 Ornament Jacob Ornament 2016

The addition of the little trees loaded in the back and tied on the top of the car were original to me and I thought about it all year long. This summer when I found the little trees. WELL....I knew it was going to be the addition I was looking for....
and it was, as I think these ornaments are the cutest!

The truck is from "Tree Lot" by Little House Needleworks
The Car is from "Route 66" by Little House Needleworks
just another example of thinking outside the box with patterns that you may already own.


On my grand vacation starting on Day 10 and all the way to Day 28 I was stationed in Fairfield, CA. 
I met for the first time my niece and nephew. 
Here we are together. My nephew's name is Weber and my niece's name is Evan.
They were doll babies and I'm pretty sure they liked their "Auntie Von" as they called me :)

  11. What a clever, brilliant idea to add the tiny trees with a bit of twine. My grandson gets his learner's permit in February, so thank you for giving me the solution for his 2017 annual Christmas ornament. Have fun, fun, fun with Katie and all your family these next three weeks.

  19. Very cute ornaments, Vonna--I'm sure you've started a new trend with the "real" trees sitting on top of the cars :)

    Have a lovely time with Katie--I remember how much I enjoyed my sons Christmas breaks... Now they have to return to work withing a day or two and it's just not the same. I think everyone should get the week between Christmas and New Year's off! Wishful thinking!!
