It's something we coordinated a few months ago to do. Beyond that I cannot say

Re: KAL ~ Christmas Crafts: Dec 2-8

Thanks Karyn, I just put a roast on the stove and made a playdate for this afternoon with my good friend Sara and her boys can play with Abby while she and I knit/crochet. I'm feeling quite a bit better than I was this morning. Hoping to get a bit done on my FIL's scarf while we're there. Then DD has AWANA (a church thing for kiddos) tonight and DS has church youth group. DH and I may Christmas shop while the kids are gone, but if not we'll just relax after a good dinner. Can I just say that I really hope to sleep tonight - sleepless nights suck! I lay in bed, hoping to fall asleep, never fall asleep and then realize I could have been knitting or crocheting or something productive. Then fall asleep for 20 minutes and feel like poop because of it later on. Can I also say how excited for Christmas I am this year? DD is going to get so many good presents and is going to be so happy! DH is also going to be so happy with his gifts that he's not expecting and I'm hoping DS will be happy and satisfied with his gifts too. He keeps adding stuff to this long list of his but we've pretty much finished buying for most people on our list (including him) so I hope he's not disappointed that he doesn't get EVERYTHING he's requesting. We're giving him some cash on top of the gifts too, so I hope he'll be happy! OK enough rambling.

More later.

Re: KAL ~ Christmas Crafts: Dec 2-8

Before I'm off for some knitting, anybody have any suggestions for a pretty, plus-size (50, 52" chest, more of a loose knit, nothing super-clingy) summer knit?

Katie- sounds like a fun day! No idea on the pattern. Sounds like you guys are big into Christmas! We like getting into the spirit, but aren't big on the gifts. We spent the same $$ on the family our church adopted as we spent on gifts for our family (just us, not extended).

I'm most excited about Bs santa gift- a train table. Costco had a good deal and she is going to be so stoked to see it when she comes downstairs Christmas morning. Otherwise we got her some stickers, a recycled plastic girlie tool set, clearance arm swimmies, and a M&D floor puzzle.

I needed to use up our collard greens before a new CSA box came today. So I just put together these (they required a bit of improv since I didn't shop for specifics, but it's pretty close):
