I love Christmas.
Except for the crowds.
And rude, frustrated people.
Oh......and traffic, too.
But, really, I love Christmas.
My tree no longer has the ornaments beautifully and evenly spaced.
Instead, my precious ornaments are carefully hung on the top branches
and all others decorate the bottom half of the tree.
Because even an artificial tree needs to be trimmed up with a fake Home Depot saw.
My local grocery store had these super cute gingerbread house kits
marked down to $2.99. Seriously, $2.99.
So we made a "gingerbread man house".
And we got STICKY.
We might possibly have snuck a few pieces of candy.

I know I could never, ever be a pre-K teacher!

Growing up, my sister and I were fortunate
to spend a lot of time with my Nana and Pap and my Mima.
Every Friday night, my sister and I would pack our
overnight bags and head over to Nana and Paps.
My parents got a much needed break and we got to have fun!
My grandparents ordered pizza from Yolanda's.
It was SQUARE, something we never got at home.
Then we would watch "The Dukes of Hazzard", "Falcon Crest", and "Dallas".
(Yeah, in case the clothes in the pictures didn't give it away, I am THAT old.)
For dessert, we got peanut butter ice cream.
A flavor never found in our own freezer.
We usually fell asleep on the floor.
And now my son gets to create these same types of memories.
Every Friday night he packs up his overnight bag and
heads off to my parents...his Mima and Pappy.

There were also many people selling chicken houses. I thought they would make great storage bins but I was so afraid that no amount of scrubbing would totally remove the chicken poop. And I just couldn't bring myself to put something poopy in my car.
But now, as I look around my house, I see so many places where a chicken coop would be totally perfect. Isn't that always the way?

But our family will be together again and that makes me very happy.

I feel better now......I am off to sew some new things for this weekend!

Seriously, it's not you......... it's me. Because I'd tell you if it were you. Really. Truly.
But now I am going to write to you everyday. Well, maybe not EVERY day, but certainly every week.

1.Buy any purse from my shop (including clearance priced handbags) and get a wallet, wristlet, changepurse, or key fob for HALF OFF! (Discount will be refunded to your paypal account)
2. Follow this blog and leave me a comment on any post.
3. Tell me in the notes to seller that you are now following my blog (or contact me through etsy if you already completed the transaction).
Pretty simple, right?
Oh, I almost forgot....this only applies to ready made items. No special orders, please.
Happy shopping :)

And I also got this cute retro chip and dip set. How clever!
And it kinda sorta matches the wall color in my kitchen!
Okay, that is a bit of a stretch but it is still perfect :)
Now, my sister and I are planning a 70's themed family dinner so that I can use my latest treasures. I'll make the chips and dip and let my sister the chef tackle the fondue and cake. That's fair, right?

The Noodle really loves school. I think it is because he is an only child, without even any cousins near his age. He is such a friendly child, never hesitating to play with any kids at the playground or in church. Most of the kids in his class are the same as last year but there was a new boy today. When the new boy was walking in to the classroom, my Noodle was waving and saying "Hi, friend!" Sweet, right?
And, this was lunch on the first day:

I am glad, though, that school starts on Tuesday. I love my Noodle but I get nothing accomplished when he is home. He has never been a kid that likes to play by himself so it is impossible to sew or clean when he is awake. Plus, he really likes to help me with what I am doing. Have you ever tried to sew with a toddler on your lap? Well, let me tell you - it is impossible!
But school starts Tuesday. I feel somewhat embarrassed to admit that I am excited about it! I have been anticipating the three days a week that I will get six blissful hours of uninterrupted sewing and cleaning. Well, mostly sewing :)

And, he really loved the turtles!
We never even made it to see Shamu, the manatees or dolphins, Clyde & Seymour, or the stingrays. I guess that is the only thing I like about living in Central Florida. We don't have to cram everything into a few days....we can visit Shamu and Mickey anytime. With only two more weeks until school starts, I guess we need to pay a visit to the Mouse House next week!
