Changing blog backgrounds

is something I have fun doing.  I always look at this birthday one and think I'll use it 'next time' but my birthday comes during the Christmas season so I don't get a chance.

This year I'm using it because it's a BIGGY.  Biggy for me, anyhow.  It's the oldest I've ever been.  50.  It gives me shivers.

Today is not my birthday but we're celebrating since all the kids are home.  We are going to a Japanese Steak House where you sit around the grill and they cook while entertaining you.  Should be fun.

It's a picture-free post today because I'm saving up.

The Twisted Stitcher is going to be my inspirations for 25 day of Christmas posts.  I don't think I can follow her format exactly but I am going to try to post each day up until Christmas.  Sometimes it will be crafty...sometimes it will just be about us getting ready for the holiday season.

I hope a few other bloggers will give this a shot.  It's fun to watch other people's holiday preparations and decorations come together.

What do you say?  Any other takers?

Happy Stitching
