Holiday Giving

Past project here from last week! Our dear friends joined forces with us to make travel pillows for a few guys we know heading off to Iraq as Christmas/Bon Voyage gifts. These two characters insisted on this photo because they were proud as peacocks that they actually sewed the pillowcases for these two pillows by themselves!!! My friend has never sewed before so not only was it a service project but a sharing the knowledge moment to boot!! Here's proof for Mike that she actually did sew all by herself. I'm pushing for her to move on to curtains for her new home next.
The Laurel and Hardy team really put their big sisters to shame! They sobered up, took the project to heart, and sewed up a storm....while the diva's opted for a pure playdate with no work involved!
Somehow we missed recording the closing ceremony?!?! The diva's redeemed themselves by suggesting we pray over or bless the indeed we did. Out came the bottle of "Irish water" as it is nicknamed in our house...holy water brought back from a visit to the shrine of our Lady of Knock in Ireland and each girl blessed each pillow by saying, "Dear god please bless the head that will rest on this pillow."....while the adults were silently saying "Please let them come home soon!!!"
