So much to do and...

seems like not enough time to do it all!

We don't have the tree up yet and I'm a tad disappointed with that but I'm trying to figure out where on earth it would go this year! Julia Grace has a playpen that has become her toy basket in one place we've used and she got a desk this year that's in the other place. I do have my Christmas tablecloth on the table - did that the day after Thanksgiving. My Advent calendar is on the fridge. Julia Grace and I have been watching Christmas movies each day and she's colored Christmas pictures. I'm hoping to finish compiling my Christmas card list today and try Julia Grace's Christmas dresses on her (they were gifts in previous years for later from Grandma and Granny). We made the first batch of Christmas cookies (and ate them all!) on Friday evening with Madison and Mallory - sugar cookie men and snowflakes and Christmas trees with red, green, and white sprinkles.

I'm also off to visit the ladies that are teaching me to knit. I've successfully made two scarves and they want to show me how to make what they call a "chemo cap" next- which is a good idea because my mom is need of just that! I'll have to keep you posted on this.

So goals for the day are...

  • visit my "knitting ladies" and learn my next knitting project
  • go to Forest City for work and take Julia Grace somewhere to play for the afternoon
  • finish compiling my Christmas card list and try Julia Grace's dresses on her
  • decide what to do this evening for dinner

Have a good day and I'll be back in a bit!!
