I hope you get a sewing machine. I wish you were close by to sew with. Robin, Kris, Michele and I sew together about once a month. I really think Darren needs a Houston job! I just got a new machine. My early Christmas present! More than anything, I hope you get Christmas eve off!
Love you and miss you!

I received the same one from my sister this morning and I almost posted it on my blog, but I didn't have enough energy at the time to put forth that much effort.
I've never heard of Posole. Is that a dessert?

Thanks Melissa! I had fun playing although I got stuck on the "favorite gift" question and started down memory lane! LOL!

I got this email too and thought it was a fun one to send around. I posted it on my blog (last Tuesday if you look for it) and I couldn't help but add some of my own questions.

Have a blessed Christmas!
