Just two days away from Thanksgiving being over and Christmas officially beginning in our house. Already Christmas bells are ringing…in my head. in a manic ding! don’t forget this! … ding! who’s going to do that?… ding! what about those? sort of way. I’m a few online orders away from being a much calmer person. It’s so hard with Oscar’s birthday right before Christmas. I feel like I’m just doing everything half assed. The most I’ve done for Oscar’s birthday, which is only a week away, is buy paper plates. Oh well, I’m thinking keep it low-key as long as I can get away with it. Doesn’t take much to make a 2 year old’s day. As it is I think our goals will be met — by December 26th every single toddler toy every made should be living in our house. On a more chipper, less buy-it-all, Christmas note I’ve already started decorating. Like Amy (so pretty!), I’ve dug out the glittery fake snow and am setting up scenes. What I’m really excited about this year is my new kitchen Christmas tree. Yes, I realize I’m taking a step down the slippery slope that leads to a house full of theme trees. I am a few short years away from being featured on Extreme Homes the Christmas edition (oops link fixed) and when they ask what started it all, I can point blame at these extremely painfully cute kitchen ornaments by Midwest of Canon Falls.
Really I had no choice.
Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving! I’ll be working on wee ornaments between courses so hopefully they’ll be up for sale next week. Also in time for Christmas present buying, patchwork robots and the Patchwork Set dolls and quilts will be for sale in the wee wonderfuls shop!
