Like snowflakes, my Christmas memories gather and dance – each beautiful, unique and too soon gone. – Deborah Whipp
It’s going too fast!! I am really trying to savor everyday before the holidays, but it insists on flying by! Pesky time, I tell ya, it goes fast when you don’t want it to, and creeps by when you want it to go fast. I have only made wassil once…oh no. I do have most of the shopping done, just a few doo-dads, and stocking stuffers left to acquire. I love to shop so that’s not a problem. But I wanted to party more you know??? Maybe do a little caroling around the ‘hood.
This weekend I will be going to Mom’s to do our annual cookie baking extravaganza!! Then thats it! No more weekends before Christmas. I guess the BG and I are going to have to make the next week count. So you are all cordially invited to my house from monday -thursday next week to party our socks off!!
Oh yeah speaking of socks I have about 10 pair left that I didn’t get to wear !! Maybe I could double up and wear two pair a day =)~
I thought I would share a gift wrapping idea that my boss Ruth shared with me. She makes new pillow cases every year for her grandkids with whatever cute fabric the kids are into that year. Then she places their gift inside!
I bought the kids the Curious George stuffed animals and books from Khols ( I buy the toy and book from there every year, good cause and good price, plus you know I love books!) but I didn’t have a box big enough to wrap them in. OHHH yeah! I will make them a fun , softy flanel pillow case! And then I thought, “self, you should make Curious George a pillow, and pillow case too!”
Now that I am on such a roll I think I will make the kids and Curious Geroge a set of matching flanel Pajamas too!! So now they will have a “tuck in” present all stuffed into the pillow case. What could be better than flanel P.J.’s and a bed time story for you and your pal Curious George ?
Lator gaters! melissa
