We were thinking of attempting another "snow" activity, but DH doesn't like the idea of waiting in line with the boys..so we'll probably hit up a Christmas craft fair then go to the light parade and C's art award presentation at city hall. So proud of my munchkin!
way to go C!

I was looking for some AG stuff, but dont think I'll be spending $75 on stuff.


back from polar express breakfast with Santa. Steven did awesome, Emily was screaming oops! But that was what Steven did too at her age, so I saw it coming.

Re: KAL ~ Christmas Crafts: Dec 2-8

She is still planning on meeting you. I talked to her for a second this morning and then she got quiet so I assume she was getting ready to go? I do know that you are a lucky woman and I'm slightly jealous.

I would do the shorter guesset and then just make wider legs if you need to.

Do that.

So, it's 10 degrees out and supposed to get to 21 today. That's a 30-39 degree improvement from what we have been seeing.

The stitch marker is from RB. It's a tester so if you have feedback, or suggestions, we'd love to hear them.

I had grand plans of making note of who sent what but then it was 1 AM and I had no pen or paper so I just said it and threw them in the mail. If you text me a pic I can tell you who sent what!
