I was glued to the computer throughout the festivities because we'd made plans to video-chat (using Skype) with Laura, who is vacationing with friends in Bangkok today. We never heard from her which added a little edge to my jolly, kwim? Heard from her today- and all is well. So, since I am online, let me show you the pictures of the holiday sewing! Everybody was so happy with all of their gifts (not just mine, hee hee).
