I cropped a few whiners out (my sisters who would rather not be blogged in their jammies- sheesh) but this was the scene all the way around. Crazy! A fun crazy though. I finished all my projects except the doll houses and clothes pin dolls (so cute, so I'm a little sad about it) and I was going to make some Molly Monkeys for the older girls. They didn't miss them though and loved every present they received. I'm so lucky to have kids who truly appreciate every gift they get. They really do, and they got just as excited about the dum dum suckers they got as they did the gifts Santa brought. I love that! They just loved being at Grandma's and having fun as a family.
Speaking of having fun with the family, Cody surprised us with a game system. Anyone who knows me knows I've been avoiding any type of game system or cable t.v. for as long as I could. Well the day has come and I have to tell you- I love it! I hope I'll be able to get things done now that I'll be spending some time brushing up on my shooting skills (balloons that is) and steering cows. I wish they had a knitting game so I could practice that before I screw up anymore yarn. The kids don't really understand what it's all about yet so I can use it as a learning tool. I'm going to try the "Pay to Play" method where they have to do chores to earn playing time. I'll let you know how that works out ;o).
And did I get any pictures of my finished projects before I gave them away... no. I'll try to drum some up and post them if I can. Oh, and before I forget, the Doll head purses are not my idea in the least. Of course I picked the fabrics and drew them up myself but they are direct copies from another blogger. I just can't seem to find her or her link right now since I saved the picture about a year ago. I'm not in the business of copying other peoples products and selling them so if I read your blog- never fear! I only copy things from other bloggers for my own personal use and I make my own original stuff to sell or give away. I always try to give credit where I can! I hope that puts a few minds at ease ;o).
