Busy holiday merrymaking

Yep. Things are chaotic in this house. In a good way, that is.

I've got most of the rooms clean, just two more to go. Tomorrow is the day since my mom comes in on Sunday (sis is already here, but she even offered to help!).

I *started* making the stockings. (Sort of). I got the first one cut and the toe and cuffs sewed on, but that's about it.... I hear the clock ticking, haha. Can I finish it on time?!? Stay tuned for the next episode of "Sew impossible"

I made a couple of ornaments for N.'s teachers at daycare, but I have no pictures to show for it. They were a finish-and-run-out-the-door-ornament-making-session. I thought they were kind of cute, two little Christmas tress made of green streamers and sequins with wire for hanging.

Almost done with shopping. My husband finally told me what he wants, so he's the last hold out.

And then tonight... I made some pretzel-and-peppermint bark (I'm in love with hyphens today; it's my everything-hyphenated-day). Just got done now, around 11:30 pm. Oi. But I'm so happy!

Oh yeah, we're frozen. Everything around us is frozen. We're in for a very white Christmas.

Happy weekend everyone!
