It is still so darn cold here I don't want to be out and about doing anything :) Staying at home working on 101 Christmas projects and trying to figure out how the heck to get the sewing room back in shape is where I want to be. I DO NOT miss upstate NY where we lived may years ago, holy cow batman!!! I will never forget the look on my Southern boys face when he read in our lease we were required to do snow removal on the roof. :)
Sew let me ask you, have you ever thought you had lost a handmade Christmas item or two? Let me tell you turning your already messy sewing room upside down in search of two Christmas gifts you thought all you need was a day or two to finish up is not a pretty sight. Low and behold I found the missing objects....to my surprise I wasn't nearly as far along on those gifts as I have imagined. Crapola, I have some work to do. Sigh. All of our gifts this year are Christmas related. The plan was to have them in the mail the first week of December so the recipients could enjoy them this season. Now...who knows.
Our schedule has already started to get crazy for the holiday season. Tonight is our annual "Southern Christmas Show" evening out with the big girls. Saturday Mason mans 3rd Birthday, Sunday SIL Birthday dinner, Tuesday Thanksgiving feast with the toddlers at Pre School, Sister in Law and her family arrive that same day, followed by 5 days of family time (lots of cooking) So far the big girls have not started sending me Pintrest posts of "Mom can you make" ideas they want for their homes but I know it's coming :)
Ahh the joys of having a big family!! I wouldn't want it any other way :)
