Smitten with Mittens

Hello Everyone,

I have just enough time for a quick post this morning.  Our dearest friends, Santa Mike and Mrs. Mike are coming over for dinner tonight.  Santa Mike comes over as Santa at 5pm for gifts and pictures, runs across the street to change, and comes back as Mr. Mike for dinner.  So far, the little kids haven't put two and two together yet......and I hope they never will.

I made a complete set of Mittens with Moxie for their family.  Our granddaughter, Kinsey, decorated all of the tags and Mr. Joe made the mitten stand.  This was a true family gift from one family to another.

Santa Mike and Mrs. Mike are the kindest, most genuine people that we are proud to call friends.  They embrace the true meaning of Christmas throughout the entire year.

Our 10-year-old granddaughters are in charge of dinner for 15 tonight.  They are coming over at 1 this afternoon to start making Sweet and Sour Chicken with a side dish of fried rice.  The rest of the family is bringing side dishes and desserts.  It's never too early to start the little ones learning how to cook, set the table, and decorate.  They love it AND they are great little cooks.



  1. Love the mittens lined up on the mantel - and sounds for a lovely evening.

  2. Your mittens are adorable, especially in front of that gorgeous quilt! Sounds like you have a wonderful evening planned...enjoy,

  3. How wonderful that the girls are cooking the main dish tonight! Aren't we lucky to have friends like that in our lives? They're going to love their gift!

  4. The mittens look fantastic. :) And what fun to have a Santa neighbor!

  5. What a lovely gift for what sounds like a lovely family.

    Hope you all had a great dinner.

  6. Love your mitten display, and the quilt in the background. Do you have a full shot of it?

  7. Tell us more about the mittens!! We don't have much of a need for them here in Middle Georgia, but they look wonderful.
