Christmas Spirit has arrived!

I have just finished taking a look at the gifts I have been collecting for this Christmas.  I usually start no later than July!  I am in better shape than I thought.  This is helping with my stress level.  I have finished more craft projects and am having fun making things for friends and family this year.  Being creative is also blood pressure lowering!  I finished my needle felted Dala Horse (see picture below!) and it came out better than I expected it too.  You know most things you make come close, or end up looking very different than you what you thought at the start.  There are those rare projects that exceed your expectations.  This is the one.  I have always loved these horses.  They are normally hand carved and painted, and are absolutely beautiful.  I have never owned one, but my mother and sister do.  I have decided to keep this one instead of sell it because I like it so much.  

My daughter is still ill, but the Prilosec her Pediatric GI specialist has given her is helping.  She and my husband are off today to meet with the doctor about where we go from here.  I just wish we could get an answer about what is making her sick.  The not knowing is very hard on the whole family.  No one is sleeping well, and everything else in life comes second to making sure the ill one is taken care of.  

The sun has just come out again.  It started snowing yesterday afternoon for the first time this season, but then changed to rain overnight.  I would rather have snow!
