All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth!
In other Christmas news, the felted clogs are done! Yahoo! I felted them yesterday, and they turned out absolutely lovely. I can't wait to make a pair for myself. I still can't find the @*#@&$ camera, so no pics. My BIL is dropping his off later so I can take some submission pics (and pics of the Knit Net sweater before I mail it off), so I'll get some then. I just can't imagine where that stupid thing might be!
Yesterday was the most productive day we've had in a long time. We were on fire, I tell you! I got the clogs finished and felted, put together two submission packages to get mailed off on Monday, went to the post office and braved a 45-minute line in order to get two Xmas packages mailed off, went to Target for some last-minute gifts and wrapping supplies, got our tree (which Sydney has since been decorating with anything she can find around the house - tape dispensers, toys, pens, socks...), and watched Christmas Vacation, one of the half-dozen Xmas movies we watch every year. Last night, we bundled the kids in the car and drove down to Peacock Lane, a bizarro little street in SE Portland where it's written into the homeowner covenants that they must display Christmas lights. It's quite the party down there, and we had to wait for 45 minutes in a long line of cars in order to get our holiday spirit satisfied. It was fun, but sadly Sydney fell asleep in her car seat long before we got our turn in the lane of lights. I tried to wake her up once we got there, but when she falls asleep, she's like a corpse. We might try to take her back on a weeknight when it's (hopefully) less crowded.
All right - time to make some coffee and tackle this office desk. We've decided to clear out everything but my knitting stuff so that we can take the home office deduction on our taxes. Bill got all of his junk out of here a couple weeks ago, but it's still utter chaos in here. I can't blame him anymore, so it's time for me to get organized. Maybe I'll find my camera somewhere in all this mess!
