Christmas, delayed!

Our Christmas with our family was to be today.
And then....
John is sick, nasty cold that still may need checked.
My Mom is sick with the flu,
My Dad has pneumonia,
Marilyn had dialysis.
And so...
We postponed.
Christmas has officially been moved to December 29 this year.
And so on my day off I painted.
This Santa was inspired by one of the stacks of Christmas cards that I have kept for inspiration.
Fun to paint. We did pass out of few of the hand-made gifts and now I can post pics of them.
This was made for my MIL for Christmas.
We filled it with all kinds of purse things.
This was for Shelby and Ryan's bathroom.
The letters are their initials.
After looking at this pic for awhile, I lightened up the block in the bottom left corner.
Forgot to retake the pic.



And this...another repeat of the snowmen heads.
Jenn really liked this and kept telling me and I took the hint.

And so, the presents are still wrapped, the food is in the fridge and freezer and everything is on hold waiting for people to get healthy.

Oh Cathy Sweetie...
I am so sorry to hear that SO many of you have been and are still sick. This will be nice that you can celebrate Christmas and New Years together. You may start something new in your family. I like the idea that it gives you more time to get ready for everything.

Love your paintings and that bag you made for your MIL is so beautiful. I bet she loved it too.

Your Santa is the cutest one I have seen, a star Santa. I love his little polka dots all over him. Just precious.

Many hugs and SO much love to you sweet one. I will be sending some prayers for your family to get well soon. Love, Sherry
