Happy New Year!

Pumpkin and I and a pile of presents...

The cousins!!

What I've been sewing: Aprons for all the ladies...

...and jammies for the kiddos...
I didn't mean to fall of the face of the earth, but I did fall off the stairs. A trip to the ER and a lovely air cast later, I am glad to say that my ankle is not broken, but my Mother's hand is. Huh? It's quite simple, really.

Saturday evening we were all bundled up to go out when I went upstairs to get a map off the printer. On the way down the stairs, I somehow missed the last stair, or few, and fell. As I sat on the step trying to not pass out or throw up, Sweetheart called Mom to come over and watch the boys so he could take me in for an x-ray. She drove/sped over and took care of the little guys while we went to get my ankle checked. So far, so good--for her.

Now, fast-forward to Sunday. Mom came over to give Sweetheart a hand with the boys while I layed on the couch with my foot up on ice. They went upstairs to get the boys. No problem. The next thing I heard was an awful thud. Sweetheart was carrying the boys down with Mom behind them. She reached down to pick up Pumpkin's Bunny on the stairs and down she went. We are all glad she wasn't carrying anyone. Except Bunny.

She got her x-rays on Tuesday, and Wednesday had to see a hand surgeon. She now had surgery scheduled for tomorrow. As I cannot drive yet, Sweetheart will have to take her to the hospital. She'll stay with us afterwards.

I'm in the recliner now with the laptop on my lap and the boys playing at my feet. I am up and around now, but trying to not stand or walk too much. While no time is good for something like this, we are all grateful it happened the day after the rest of the family left town and not before Christmas.

We had a Merry Christmas and are enjoying a quiet week this week. It's time to go fix supper now. Blessings to you all and a very Happy New Year!

I was reading this just before turning off my computer for the evening.

I honestly didn't know whether to laugh or cry, you poor thing! And you Mom, too!

Instead I'll pray for both of you, and your Sweetheart.

I'm so sorry about your ankle and your mom's hand- both of you at once, how crazy is that?
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the aprons! Is that the pattern from Maryjanes big thick book? (which is sitting in the other room but I'm to lazy to get it to look at the title.)
If so, how did it sew up? Good, I'm guessing since you made so many.
Happy New Year to you all!

Oh my goodness! I am sooo sorry, dear friend. I will be praying for you sweet girl.

By the way, I LOVE the apron pattern that you used. And I love your choices of fabric. In fact, I have some of that blue fabric in my stash, too.

Love you, friend!

I finally have the time to check in on all my blogging friends and here you are worse for wear!

I am so sorry for you and your dear Mother. I will keep you in my prayers.

The boys and the aprons are just too cute! What pattern did you use? I might have to just make one.

You rest up and take care of yourself, the same goes for your dear Mom.

Yours ever so kindredly,
Honey Hill Farm
