Getting Close to Christmas

I can't believe that Christmas is 10 days away. I still have a lot of shopping to do and we have had nothing but snow upon snow so I haven't gotten to the stores.

My tree is up and lit and this is the first time in many, many years that it is not a tree with 90%  handmade ornaments. In fact there aren't any this year. Justin (DS#1) wanted to do new lights so he bought Bright White and they really are. I had 16 pretty purple ornaments and he wants to get some more purple and silver ornaments. Right now it has a lot of Hallmark ornaments and other ornaments that are both my sons' ornaments since they were little. 

We went shopping to adopt a dog. We didn't find anything but I did find 3-4 online and want to check them out this weekend. They are German Shepherds and there is a 6 month old puppy that is a German Shepherd/Rottie mix. Which is what I have always owned in the past. We aren't in a hurry and will take our time.

This week I didn't stitch quite as much as I would have liked to.But I did manage to make some progress.
I was hoping to finish the column by tonight but I didn't.

I watched 2 good movies this week as well, off from my DVR.
Let It Snow- Loved it
The Christmas Spirit - still have like 20 minutes left on it but it is so good and will need kleenex for the rest of it.

General Hospital has been getting really good. Loved how it ended on Friday and can't wait for tomorrow.

Everyone have a great week!!

Nice progress on your dragon.

Will you show us pics of your tree when it's decorated?

Good luck with your search for a new dog.

Love your stitched piece - it is looking great! Good luck with the search for the new dog, finding the right one is hard to do. Your tree sounds pretty, would love to see a picture!
