Noel's picks

This Christmas has been anything but typical!  We celebrated and exchanged gifts on December 22nd.  My husband went into the hospital for a planned surgery on the 23rd (at 5:30 AM!).  We were supposed to be home by now, but here I sit!

I've been blessed to have both of our families in town loving on the kids, so I've been able to stay here at the hospital to help take care of him and talk with the doctors and nurses.  He's been getting quite a bit of rest, so I've had plenty of "down time".  I'm so glad I brought my laptop, but after all the crafty browsing I've done, I wish I'd brought my sewing machine too!

I've been posting links and pics to my (personal) Facebook page all day, and I thought I'd share a few of them here as well!  I hope that you enjoyed your Christmas and are looking forward to the new year.  I'll be "off radar" for a while, as Aaron Thomas Giger (our fifth child!) will be joining us on or before December 30th!

So, here are the picks of my day of surfing!
