it’s been over for 3 days and I’m still in my pajamas!

And I get a little bit cranky when I have to get dressed. Even if it is to go to the target to buy christmas lights on sale. In a fit of real-life avoidance, yesterday I undecorated our tree, took off all the ornaments, tinsel and lights and went out and bought new lights and then redecorated. Tim and I are just never happy with the lights and this year our friend Karen clued us in, we need frosted lights instead of clear. We got these jumbo dew drops and I think they’re the perfect mix of nostalgia and modern and I’m so happy with them! So the tree is staying up til February. Actually it doesn’t take as long as you’d think to redo a tree. There’s no unpacking of ornaments, lugging up boxes from the basement, etc. Ok, just justifying my insanity. But see how pretty!

We had a wonderful Christmas weekend out at my parents house. Things that were awesome…narrowly missing a very nasty flu, an elated Oscar playing with his new train table with all the trimmings for 3 straight days (and counting), well received presents including my Mom’s quilt and my sister’s heart bear (yay for Jess Hutch patterns!), my special wrapping paper, the su doku puzzles that I became addicted to (perfect for filtering out every to-do thought left in one’s brain) and my new Small Object See Sew tote bag full of treats!

I’ll wait for a sunny day to take pics of all the fun crafty stuff I got for Xmas. Here’s a peek. Oh! and the missing package from eQuilter showed up on my doorstep on December 23rd (btw, did you know I’m the first domestic package of theirs ever to go missing?! odd since I was talking with at least one other gal who’d had the same thing happen to her!) so I was busy into the night making Oscar’s annual Christmas pjs.

Ok, that’s all the time at the computer I can take. Have to ease myself back into it. Now it’s time for a napper and maybe, well you know, some japanese number puzzling :)

Oh wait! Can’t forget the best Christmas present I saw this year. My friend Stacey made a board game! for her niece and nephew. So cool!

    glad to hear that you and yours had a wonderful christmas. i bought my hubby a few of those suduko books and we are having the hardest time with them…grrr! all that erasing :)
    can’t wait to see all the wonderful goodies you got and i must say i am jealous that you have been in your pjs for three days. i’m not that lucky…but does it make me a bad mommy if bella was in hers for three days?

    Where did you get that wonderful paper? My father-in-law was a dyed in the wool Cardinal fan and he passed away in the spring suddenly…unexpectedly. I’d love to have some of that paper as a way to keep his memory active in my daughter’s mind.
    Was sudako the ‘must have’ item this year? My husband’s young cousins all got them.
