aHH, the other side of Christmas...here are a few highlights from our week of holiday peace meets chaos:
*Mailing most of my packages on time! Having so much fun making or choosing just the right gifts. Making the packaging from old grocery sacks and random fabric.
hot choc drinking chocolate with gourmet marshmallows on nights we needed to stay up late to finish assisting the elves in the workshop.
*Hiding treats for my sweets.
*Sitting up knitting next to the tree and smelling it's yummy fir-ness.
*Onion dip. Onion dip. And, oh yes, onion dip. The kind that comes from a little foil packet and mixes with sour cream. Mmm.
*BOMBdiggity buckwheat warming goodliness from my girl, Nina. More of her beautiful sewn cards...thank you my love. Felted snowbawlz from my gal, Wen and beautiful handmade coloring stones...I love you dames. Cards and pictures galore papering the fridge. Peanut butter cookies. Plum cake.
*A new laptop. Pink. WOO HOO! Santa was very, very good to me.
*"Holly Jolly Christmas" one million four hundred sixty seven times.
*Hobo trippin' to the movie house to see Desperaux with my little man. Discovering long lost gift certificates to movies in post-holiday nesting purge...free movie!
*Kisses on the lips. Snuggling up close and smelling morning baby's breath.
*Hearing a name for my baby girl over the beautiful, cacophonous din.
