Oh, boy...I did not mean to fall off the face of the blogworld for a whole week! Seriously.
Here's my week in review:
Monday: Club Little House sorting party...great fun and lots of work. Thanks so much Hope, Pam, Lorraine, Claudine and Leslie for being such fabulous elves! (see Pam's blog for club little house sneak peeks, but not if you want to keep it all a surprise!) Here's a picture of what my family room looked like with all the club little house submissions ready for sorting.
Tuesday: Spent most of the day wrapping gifts for the baby and packing them up to send off to California...took way more time than I thought it would. My three favorite gifts were a cat face shaped keyboard which had an option to change the notes to "meows", a chipmunk toy (we used to have a chipmunk that would come visit our front door everyday and Baby would (many times aday) go to the front door with his face pressed against the glass and say "Monk" Monk"), and a tiny digital picture viewer to which we loaded 50 pictures of us, the baby, and other fun things.
Wednesday: Worked on handmade gifts in the morning and went shopping in the afternoon, treating myself to a very nice lunch out alone.
Thursday: Had some little friends over in the morning for a crafting project. Afterwards we had gingerbread with whipped cream (lots) and egg nog served in tiny espresso cups of different colors. Went to the dr. in the afternoon and finished up handmade gifts in the evening.
Today: Met my friend Hope at Newberry's in Brunswick for their moving sale (great!) and then exchanged stockings at Beans in the Belfry! Dropped off 20 gifts for my sweet friend Irene to give to all the angels in her life, including the staff of her dr's office and the folks at the drive-thru of McD's. Stopped by for a quick visit with Ann and Linda at the Cottage. Ate a late lunch at Tuskie's.
Here are some pictures that Hope took on Monday before the sorting party of my holiday decorations...
