Armstrong Mansion Bed & Breakfast




Adrian and I spent a night at the Armstrong Mansion Bed & Breakfast last weekend. Thanks to me, I spent two hours listening to a very boring time share presentation (Worldmark by Wyndham) in order to earn a free night stay. It was worth it! We only had to pay $20 for taxes. The July Glory room was selected for us and it was a very romantic and cozy room. It was a little creepy to have George Washington staring at you but it was still fun to get away. I especially enjoyed the breakfast which consisted of fresh fruit, orange juice, quiche, trifle, peach cobbler, and assorted breads. We also spent the next day together and even got to see the movie Duchess. Thanks for the lovely weekend Adrian! I had a great time with you. Love you.

Princess Stockings



A lady from my ward wanted Cinderella/mouse and Sleeping Beauty/rose stockings for her grandchildren. I was a little worried that it might not turn out but I think they are so cute. Of course, Adrian was my master critic so it took me a little longer than planned. Oh well! It was worth it. I hope they will enjoy their new christmas stockings. I am all booked up for the year 2008 but if you are interested in buying a christmas stocking for 2009, go to my blog at http://emileeschristmasjoy.blogspot.com/. Happy Christmas (as they say in England)!

Cutest hat ever!

I got so excited when I saw Becky's blog, I had to post the picture to share with all my friends and family. McKenzie is wearing a fasionable hat that I made. Yes, I knitted the cute pink beanie. Becky-I hope you don't mind me advertising my creative abilities. I am now grateful for the snow so McKenzie can wear the beanie I made. Love it.
