A few Christmas videos.
After the candy the kids played with blocks and Lincoln Logs
Now snack time and story time.
This cold sure makes it hard to get ready for Christmas. Presents are ready and wrapped but I miss riding around looking at all the pretty lights. Just too darn cold.
I started knitting mittens again and am on my second pair. I can make the cuffs longs so they also cover the wrists and lower arms which make them warmer.
Well good night and have a pleasant tomorrow.
There were Christmas carolers here tonight. Such pretty songs they sang. There were about twelve people, young adults I think. They gave me an invitation to Christmas dinner before they left. Must be cold out there tonight.
Took kids to library story time today and Santa was there, gave them each a candy cane. Then brought Owen to school. Too cold to go outside for recess so they were going to have a special surprise. I didn't find out what it was cause his Mom picked him up. His Mom has rented a new house, has moved away from her parents. The house is huge, two stories and three bedrooms. Owen is excited about it having a play room too.
Put the lights on the Christmas tree today. Owen picked out the tree. We got it from the Boy Scouts Troup 1008 at Annunciation Church.
I'm going to try mall walking but it takes some prep time to think about getting out early and going to the mall before it opens. I don't even go to malls when they are open so I'm not sure how this is going to work out for me.
Got all set to write out Christmas cards tonight but then found out I forgot to grab a pen so didn't do it...ha ha.
I have a new Mother Earth News to read, so I think I'll go do that.
Goodnight Mr. and Mrs. America and all the ships at sea.
They are made from 18 to 24 month jeans...my granddaughter's outgrown ones, lined with a pretty lavender and pink fabric and hot glued together.
(edit) they priced them at ten dollars and they all sold as soon as they were placed on the table so I guess I did okay. I bought some baked goods. It was a very nice sale, still going on this pm.
It's quite easy even for me to make them. They sell for $40 to $50 dollars to strangers or $15.00 to friends. It requires a very small pair of jeans, 18 months to size 10. One yard of fabric for the lining, a sheet of foam to insulate, glue and glue gun, and any decorations you want to put on. Oh, and a friend to help you when you get stuck LOL. Also a magnetic snap. It was an enjoyable time.
Here is the group I got to play with today...notice how conveniently everyone has their head turned away.
How beautiful is the road to a friends house...Goodnight and have a pleasant tomorrow.
There is one more thing (well that's not the exact truth as there are quite few more things I would like), but these are starry lights powered by the sun. This is a string of tiny little starlets powered by the sun and they glow up to eight hours on solor power, never need to be plugged in.
The catalog is much more fun than the web site and it is free. There is also a link to http://windandweather.com/plaques
(No, I am not selling for them, just thought you might enjoy browsing too)
Goodnight and have a pleasant tomorrow.
