We're Relaxing


1970 - We discovered 'Santa Claus is Coming to Town' holiday show'. And the '70s brought us the new mini lights for decorating our tree. In 1973 - brought us the first Hallmark Ornaments. 1983 - their first musical ornament and in 1984 first their first lighted and animated ornament. And the Halmark Channel was born - offering many wonderful seasonal movies, most needing a tissue box or two. 1990 - Fiber Optic trees and pre-lit trees and 1992 - Muppet Christmas Carol (first production after the death of the Muppet founder)




Moe likes chillin' amongst the presents.






Bella has opted for a more comfy spot.



And this is all I have been working on as everything else is picked up. So we are just all 'vegging' and enjoying the season. Snow is on it's way, you can smell it in the air.


Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  11. It's nice to hear that you are taking some time for yourself and relaxing. Our family still watches the Muppet Christmas Carol every year. It has become my favorite Christmas movie. Partly because it is so much fun and also because it is something we've always shared as a family.
