It's beginning to look a lot like.... spring??
We had some real winter weather roll through here last week with snow accumulating enough for the girls to enjoy an afternoon of sledding
and hot cocoa. I thought there was a chance of a white Christmas but then the snow began to look all yucky and then super warm weather (for us, anyway) moved in. It was around 60 degrees Saturday morning when I went out to run errands and finish up some shopping. So now all the snow is gone and it's raining here.
I've finished wrapping the girls' presents - I just need to add labels. The bigger boxes will remain unwrapped. I have half of the blanket for Emily's doll bed cut out so I just need to cut the back piece and sew that together. There hasn't been much time for blogging these days. I've been staying up later than I want to at night in order to finish up presents. The unfinished doll furniture was a big thorn in my side. As usual, I thought I would have plenty of time to sew all the bedding and paint the furniture but I lost some of my weekly "free" time with parent/teacher conferences and shopping. Weeknights are fairly useless to me - by the time the girls are in bed and we've eaten dinner, it's almost 9:00 and I'm usually wiped out. Rich ended up priming the furniture Saturday afternoon while I had the girls at a birthday party and I spray painted everything last night in the poorly lit garage after the girls went to bed.
I want to spend today (what's left of it) cleaning (we host on Christmas day) so I can fully enjoy the day tomorrow with the girls. We have big plans for Christmas cookies and Rich will be home early from work. I think we are still undecided on what we'll be doing tomorrow evening. I can't believe Christmas Eve is tomorrow. I had big plans for other sewing projects that never made it past the "it would be nice to do this" phase.
I know, McKenna. I know.
