You see, I had cut out matching skirts for Gaby, Sarah, and Mary, but didn't have Gaby and Sarah's sewn yet. And I wanted to make some PJs for Elijah for Christmas too...all before we went to their house.
So, when Phillip got up at 4:20 A.M. on Christmas eve to bake our ham, I got up, put on some Bible to listen to, and started SEWING as FAST as I could!! Jesus helped me and I got it ALL DONE!
~Thanks to Aunt Laura (and Sharon H.) sending us some fun Lightening McQueen material, I made Elijah some jammy pants for Christmas. ~
A couple minutes later Sarah said, "Mommy, just make a road and put cars on it... to hide the stains." I said, "Sarah, that's a Great idea! We'll make the road out of jean, and use yellow ric rac for the line down the middle." So, I grabbed some jean and Phillip cut out the road and all the cars while I was finishing Elijah's jammy pants. Then I quickly sewed it all on.
We were so happy at how Jesus helped it turn out.~
We took our big ham that Phillip made to share with them too, and it turned out YUMMY! I made a big batch of biscuits to take, for they love my biscuits. I also took lots of Christmas tins filled with our homemade goodies like peanut butter and peppermint fudge, candied almonds, etc. to munch on during the afternoon/evening.~
Here's Phillip, Mary, and I enjoying our soup!~
Pastor Jimmy and Sis. Farly gave me/us an ADORABLE set of "tinto" cups (or small coffee cups) and saucers. I squealed, for I had seen one similar at Pastor Jimmy's Mom's house and fell in love with it. I'm so HAPPY to have this set! ~
~Bro. Jaime, and Sis. Sofia, and Edgar and Joanna each gave us a nice fruit basket!! (We gave each couple a big block of cheese, their "areguipe" ( soft caramel), and a tin of Christmas cookies.)~
~Elijah in his new PJs.~
Pics of our Christmas day coming soon.
