Christmas approaches

 Well, it's been quite the week here.  Last night it snowed a little. It's been two years since we really had a snowy winter, I am hoping this little bit of snow is the sign of good things to come. (We have been having horrible drought!)
 Sammi was COMPLETELY smitten with Santa Lucia at the Christmas parade last week, so first thing Monday while washing ninety loads of laundry I set out to make her a Flow'ret Bright winter crown.  It was hard work! She was completely enchanted by it and wanted to wear it to school, but after two days of hand work (which ended in cursing and hot glue), I had to say no for fear it would get wrecked.

I started feeling a bit ill by Tuesday morning but thought it was all the tedious hand sewing with my old eyes (I now wear one contact for close and one contact for far and too much close work can give me a headache).  But nope, but Tuesday night I was down for the count.  I spent four days puking, sweating, weak. TOTALLY awesome with a huge list of Christmas things to be done, right!?
 I will get a pic of her in it and upload the pic of her with Lucia, but I have to log in and out and in and out and email photos from my phone and on and on to blog anymore. Its really a big pita.
This morning the kids painted these ornaments I grabbed at target on a whim. We hadn't had a chance to make anything this year and I just love how gorgeous these turned out!

All that's left now are the gingerbread houses and a trip to church before Santa arrives, but now Sammi is down with the puke, so who knows how this will all turn out. Lucky me! LOL
