While my mornings were spent with Santa. My afternoons were spent with Kindle. Let me just say that I love that the library loans books on Kindle. All three books I read came from the Chicago Public library. My first book was a little older, The Story of Edgar Sawtell. It was pretty good. I had a hard time with this book because I kept waiting on the dog to die. The death of animals makes me cry and I knew this was going to be part of the book. I will not read Marley and Me because I heard the dog dies. The second book was The Night Circus. I really enjoyed this book. Finally, I read Girls in White Dresses. This is a girly book and this is not my usual genre. I only read this because the author was from Chicago. This book is good if you are looking for this type of read.
I leave on Saturday for Naples for a week. I am done with my Christmas shopping however most of the gifts involve cash, checks, or gift certificates. DH ordered his own Christmas present before the Turks. He got a dive computer which he used on vacation. The only other gifts I bought were for my parents. Part of those are already in Florida and I will bring down a few gifts. New Years Eve is a stitching day with the guild ladies and we are hosting a wine tasting party for a small group of friends.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Holiday Season. Enjoy your family and friends but I hope you can find a little time to stitch.

I did get a lot of stitching done on this trip. I started the snowman ornament that is pictured above on my plane ride down. He turned out really cute. I still have the background to work on but that is a good task for my next trip.
While I was in Florida, a professional sand castle event was going on. The sand castles and artists are amazing. Here is a sample of my favorites.
