This is a random post. I need to catch up with how neglectful I’ve been over the last week. I feel a lot of jumping around coming up so everybody take your Dramamine.
So, Hesira got little prize from my contest and so she sent me a tin of her own homemade Biscotti. I ate them all. I did not share them. I ate them all. Homemade bisotti is da bomb.
Here is Brittney at the airport. Her eyes aren’t actually that red. We picked her up on Friday night. She was 4 hours late due to some delays out of Salt Lake and then more delays out of Chicago. I’m not complaining though because if she’d been routed through Denver she would have been a lot later than 4 hours.
Here’s the crew ready for church on the morning if Christmas eve. I made that dress for Maggie 2 years ago. It was to the floor the first year. She finally fits into it. I like to get a lot of wear from my hand made stuff.
I have no pictures of Christmas day. Lots of Video though. What was the greatest was Ryan going downstairs and seeing the presents under the tree and screaming “I can’t believe it! Santa did come! He did come!” Nothing more fun than a three year old’s enthusiasm.
This is the letter I put into Chelsea’s present. You remember the pink ribbed sweater? Not done. I’m very close to the arm hole decreases on the sleeves. Problem is I haven’t touched it since Christmas Day. I have a good excuse though. Inventory.
Here is Brittney helping her old mom out with the inventory. Good news is that I finished counting and weighing it all tonight. Now I just have to enter it all into quickbooks and everyone will be happy!
And finally, today I bought my store (and me) a little prezzy today. Sometimes it gets a little quiet in there and I could use some music. My sister said it also would help a lot with store ambiance and I am working toward a very homey feeling. If any of you have XM, are there any stations you would recommend for the shop? I also am going to try and download some podcasts for me to listen to when no one is visiting me. There’s definitely a learning curve to this thing but it’s cute as heck.
