ok, here's some more things i can cross off my list!
sent off my quilt top and my scarf.
sent off my giveaway prizes!
i have two of the three fringey fleece scarves finished, just one more to go!
almost all my gifts are wrapped - but i can't put them under the tree :(
my cards are almost all done too - just waiting on a few addresses.
still to be done:
6 dozen cookies for saturday morning - thinking about lemon gems
cookie trays for neighbors
teacher gifts - i have all the fabric cut for the teacher notebooks, but only one finished. three to go!
here's a photo of one of our treasured christmas traditions. for our wedding, my husband's aunt (and godmother) made us a nativity set. made as in cast the ceramic and hand painted them. amazing, isn't it?
funny story, when we were given the box to unwrap at our shower, i could tell it must be something special because of the way she was watching. so the first thing i unwrapped was the black king. and i was holding a rather large box. and i thought, hmmm. a black figurine. what in the world is in this box!
so i sat there smiling, trying to figure out what to say, when someone finally explained to me what it was! it was one of those awkward moments, and i know she felt a little disappointed by my reaction. but it truly is one of my favorite parts of the season! isn't it incredible?
and on to another fave tradition - wallyworld for free pictures with santa! they always have the same guy as santa too, which makes it even better for the scrapbook. a little more believable, you know? have a great weekend, i've got to run get started on those cookies!
