We first celebrated with my husband's parents and his grandma on Christmas Eve and I gave my mother-in-law design walls.
On Christmas day, we celebrated with my parents as well as my sister and her husband and kids. I think my son likes having a new baby cousin. :)

After Christmas, we headed up to Michigan to celebrate with my husband's brother and his family. I never can read in the car, but for some reason I can stitch. So I traced this pattern onto some white fabric and stuck it in a hoop for stitching in the car. I was hoping to finish it on the way and give it to my sister-in-law as a gift, but we ran into a bit of bad weather and it got dark early so I was only mostly done when we arrived in Michigan. I finished stitching it up while we were there and I think she liked it. It reminded me of her and her children.

|After! I stuck magnets onto the back of the ones my husband and I did and now they are on our fridge.|
Tomorrow I'll post pics of what I bought with the various gift cards I was given. Can you guess what I might have purchased?
