Another Week Gone...

Well, I'm happy that it's the weekend, but I have so much to do!!! YIKES! So, here I am sitting at the computer...playing. {grin}

Thought I would share this fun Christmas photo with you. That's me (Tonto) and my sister, Joyce (the Lone Ranger). I'm thinking we were 3 & 4 (or 4 & 5??). I tell you, we had more fun wearing those costumes!!! Pretending our tricycles were our trusty steeds (Scout and Silver)...shooting our guns, racing around on our horses, and generally saving the day for the neighborhood!

How am I doing on my Christmas sewing??? Well, not too bad. Today, I must finish everything I am working on that is going to be mailed. I have 3 to my sister in Colorado, one to my niece in New Mexico, and a big one with several people's gifts in it to Eau Claire. I already mailed Joyce's package to her in Alaska, as she will be travelling over the holidays and I wanted to be sure she had her package before she left. Lots to do yet...I'm not done sewing! And, I am taking pictures, so will have a big show & tell once everyone receives their gifts! Cannot wait!

With that being said, I suppose I should go and get started, hey?

Have a great weekend!

How cute! Perhaps you were Neil Young's inspiration for "Cowgirl in the Sand"...I must have had the same thing going with that pic of me in my lace panties and gun and holster and red cowboy hat...I was only 3 for those who don't I best clarify!

LOL - Lone Ranger here!!
Thanks for putting that on your blog!!
At least everyone thinks we are cute!
I had a ponytail in kindergarten so I am thinking
I was 4 so you must have been 3 when that photo
was taken. Look this spring for a new Lone Ranger movie I heard was being made!!!!!
