more running

Well my mom made it in. However they forgot to send her bags, so we had to go back to the airport yesterday to get her bags! We have been on the move so much.

I think we are all ready for Christmas.  People have been so great to us. More people are reading my letter to Santa, but we have already gotten so much. So now I am telling people that we know of another family that is in need and they are taking the stuff over to them.

Today we are going to go down to Coronado Island and to old town. I have never walked through old town San Diego, so it will be nice to see it.

I am so very proud of Nikki! Nikki said that she wanted to make a quilt for her boyfriend. That usually translates into me making the quilt. I told nikki how to do it and I showed her a few tricks, but I did not do anything else. So what do you guys think of our daughters first quilt?

I am so glad that my mom is here and that we having a god time. I can't wait to go to San Diego and spend the day with my family!

I have fond memories of the quilt makers in our family.  My sister Ann made a quilt for special occasions like graduation for all her nieces and nephews, and they became so attached to those quilts they swore they could not sleep without them.  I wore one she gave me to tatters.  I took it on a camping trip with me when she was there, and she felt so bad she had my mother help her make another, but it was too lush and warm for Phoenix and I had to give it away.  I hope it kept some poor homeless warm.  I looked out once and saw a legless man in a wheel chair sleeping under a nice worm comforter.  I thought that looks like my sister's!  It was.  She gave it to him the night before because he was out on a winter night.   Gerry
