I keep meaning to post about how busy I am with work, but I'm just so busy. Santaland Diaries opened the weekend after Thanksgiving, and has been running Wednesday through Sunday, with an extra different show afterwards on Friday and Saturday. But tonight it closes, hurrah. It's such a fun job, I really love it but it will be good to be at home. Tomorrow I'm going to cook a leisurely dinner instead of having to rush--roast chicken, mashed potatoes, broccoli. |
You can see our Christmas decorations on the outside of the house here:

I really thought I had more to say. I've been composing all sorts of mental posts over the past few weeks. I've been doing pretty good with the holiday stuff--we made gingerbread houses, and went to the Giant Candyland at a local park, and Brian took them to the Holiday Festival at the museums (I had to work). I tried not to stress myself by making everything for the girls, but I still ended up trying to make too much (the felted boots are what totally threw me, and I need to go check on them in the washing machine to see if they felted properly, but I'm scared). Brian is taking them to see Peter Pan this afternoon and I'm hoping to finish up the details on a few other gifts.
Oh look, saved draft from Saturday!
Things are still moving along in an okay manner. I've finished with the Christmas gifts, there were some other things I wanted to make but I can just do them in January, they were going to be clothing items anyway. I almost ruined the felted boots, Miranda's were HUGE, so I cut them down about 2 inches, reseamed them then threw them in the washing machine to felt the seams a little more and they felted a lot. They were almost too small but I was able to block them and stretch them somewhat. They would have probably been perfect if I had left them alone.
Tonight we are going out to look at Christmas lights, which I love doing and the rest of the family is a little bored by it, I think.
