I have been spending quite a bit of time going through pictures for our big "6th Grade Graduation" event. I do not really get the whole thing but somehow it got started that our 6th graders should have a graduation ceremony. Well, I have found that our fourth child does not seem to have nearly as many pictures as the other kids...no surprise. While trying to find pictures, I ran across these that I took of some of my mother-in-law's decorations for Christmas. By the time we arrived at her house, the tree and things were already down since we were there for New Year's Eve. I love these ornaments that she displays in a bowl and she told me they were many years old. They were a gift to her and she still treasures them.

As long as I have known her she has cross stitched...

One of her nativity sets is by Jim Shore and since I am a quilter, this is exactly how I like to picture baby Jesus, the wise men and the shepherds.

It has been fun going through pictures even though I don't seem to have what I am looking for. I really need to scrapbook and journal before I forget all the stories that are behind the pictures.

Great photos Joellen! I really the ornaments in the bowl & those Jim Shore figurines. And those cross stitch pieces are wonderful - they must have take lots of time to finish!
