Survived Noisy Parties, More Crafts. . .

I finally got a shower-Yay, me! Cleaned the messy bedroom, see before photo... The parties were hectic as usual, and so very LOuD! They are just So excited! : ) Mary Claire didn't want any of the Chick-Fil-A nuggets we'd gotten or the cheese and crackers. She was only interested in the beautifully colored sugar cookies, emphasis on sugar! She shared a small bite, and it was wonderful! Way to go, Shelby Lynn's!
So, now on to the next thing...I'm waiting for my sweet friend, Jenifer, to come by..she's bringing something by, and I'd bought a towel for her party Friday night (I've got a date!), so I decided to go ahead and monogram it now, and so she'll have it before the party. I tell ya, I live my life by the seat of my pants, moment by moment! And what fun I have! : ) I got the bedroom vacuumed, go me!! And both boys have had their baths (Water Works Wonders) while I worked away. It's awesome when I can multitask. Ok, I had some help-Ches was half watching them too. We definitely have a tag-team approach. They did start to get cold, so I heated that water right up, yes-siree! Then they could just about swim, and I had another 15 minutes or so to write another blog, and get ready for the next project: teachers' notebooks. I'm making little tabs (with my nifty tab puncher from Stampin' Up! my absolute fav toy!) and then stapling them into premade notebooks-so cute! I'll have to add some pics of my favorite projects! : )
Ok, hard to type with toddler on lap, talking on mouse (phone) to imaginary friends, swatting at air with metal pica ruler. Ok, down now, striking at a/c intake vent with metal ruler. Must go. Sure frees up the lap and hands though!

'Twas the week before Christmas and in everyone's house families were busy quickly moving about. Mommies were cooking, daddies making repairs, little girls vacuumed while small boys swept stairs, working day after day and well into the night, making sure their house was all cheery and bright.

There were baubles, bangles and Christmas tree lights and a star on the top reached to dizzying heights. There was mistletoe, candy and presents for all and crackling fires warmed rooms -- wall to wall.

Christmas soon will be here, with all said and done, and time to relax, so get ready for fun. Uncle John will soon be ringing the bell and Aunt Christine will be there with good things to eat!

So happy children, Mommy and Daddy, get ready, get set, leave cookies and milk, Santa Claus is coming and life will be joyful!

ps-outdoor photos don't take so well when all the lights get shorted out. Turns out that 23 strands can't go in one outlet. I did have the branch-y system with no more than 3 hooked together at each joint, but alas, I shall have to have the outlet replaced like last time. It blew the reset button/fuse thingie. So pictures would be like the black hole with a cute wreath in the middle. : )

Love the pictures of your crafty stuff... the notebooks for the teachers are so cute! I have a spot open in my next Revolving Hostess Plan - do you want it? New catalog - new goodies! :o)
