Guess Who Turned 5?!

Hi friends! How are you? I am glad you are stopping by. :) It is cold and white here. I have been stitching and stitching on my Theotokos. Here is my progress.
BIG SMILES! =) The borders meet!

Hooray for Henry! Not only is he doing well with his neck injury, he seems fully recovered! He is now 5 years old. =) He is about half a year younger than Mabel.
 I finished the book by Louis Zamperini, Don't Give Up, Don't Give In: Lessons From An Extraordinary Life. What a great, quick read. I recommend it!
A beautiful, sweet surprise from Brian.
Are you ready for Christmas? No, not me. Not at all.  Well, the Christmas stockings go out tomorrow night, and I have the stitched ornaments ready and the candy all set. We have the front door wreath up and the nativity out in front. Not much else yet. I'll get there. ;)

Stitching and praying,
I told you poodles are smart

Your dogs are so cute. Everytime I see a picture of them it reminds me of Suesue, my grandmas dog when i was a kid. Soft and curly hair.

Happy birthday to Henry! Please don't tell Mabel, but I have a bias toward your little Henry. he's such a cutie! Hope your Christmas prep is going well. I'm still shopping, and there's no tree yet either. lol! As for the knitted items, they just aren't going to happen. Oh well.

Happy Birthday to Henry! Perhaps he is now an adult and will behave appropriately and take better care of himself ;)

Congrats on your borders meeting! That is such an intense feeling of relief, hah.

Yay! Henry is well!

Glad the borders met also! They are quite beautiful! Henry sure is cute! Hope he was a little spoiled on his special day! LOVE the pink rose from Brian! He's a keeper! I have the stitched ornaments out of storage, the little tree out, and...that is all! Plan to do more today, AFTER I blog!!!

Happy 5th birthday to Henry! Hope he got some extra doggie treats :)

I hope Henry was fully celebrated today! Five is a special birthday for a pup! He's quite dapper.

It sounds like you have a lot of your decorating done. We've done most of our shopping but zero decorating. It will all work out!

Your WIP is looking amazing! Yay for the border meeting!
