O'Quilt's Merry Little Christmas

This Christmas was a grand gift of love
Both my children under my roof for Christmas..the first time in 15 years.
All three of my grandchildren here for Santa
and...my sister.
I hope you all found peace and joy at the holidays

Lynsey's T-shirt quilt was a big hit
She was so surprised...The  boys were jealous,
A huge thanks to Mimi in Idaho for stabilizing the t-shirts.
Nice to have friends in high places  !!

The boys were happy enough with their fleece blankets.
Instead of tying them..I just zipped a zig-zag stitch around the edges.

Christmas Eve Dylan could not find his stocking...it probably is lost among Legos..
We all looked.  Walmart came to the rescue.
Dylan's sweet 8 year old eyes....asked me to put his name on it
so Santa would know where to put his presents.
He looked and found these letters..Voila...Grandma to the rescue.
We have our Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve
The dinner was prepared by my wonderful son in  law and my daughter
Lynsey was the great sous-chef.


I did nothing but frost the cookies.
In the style of my own grandmother.
The grands with their daddy...
We did Christmas crackers...a tradition Mr .O'Quilts favored.

We still miss Granddaddy so much
My favorite Christmas present was a story about Granddaddy that Lynsey wrote.
It brought tears to my eyes.

Memories from many moons ago.Thinking of our lovely life together.

We had a wonderful Christmas
A favorite song.
USAF band holiday presentation

I grew up in an Air Force family, after all.

What a darling t shirt quilt. Wonderful that you could have all your kids under the same roof. So many emotions at holiday time.

Lyndsey is so cute in her Christmas jammies! I'm glad you got the quilts done and that the kids loved them. (of course!) So happy you had your whole family together for the big day! That makes for the best memories.

Happy New Year!
