This is the most popular word around my house these days. Everyone,
especially me, is itching for Christmas Break to start. In years past, school break started a week before Christmas, but for some reason they moved it back this year.
I’m used to having that extra week to get all those presents bought, made, and wrapped. Needless to say, I’m behind. WAY behind.
They are for my little toddler boys I watch. Their mom’s teach with Chris which is very nice because I get all those school breaks off. I was going to give them all slippers, but while trying them on their little feet for the final fit, all three screamed,
And immediately wanted them off. Since the slippers were pretty much done, I decided to add the snack bags to their gift just in case the slippers get pushed aside. I hate giving a gift that isn’t used. I know that the snack bag will be put to good use since toddlers can’t seem to go far without some sort of snack. And remember, every child *has* to have a bag with their name on it.
For the oldest child, I made another Eddie Cap which I finished this morning to be given away this afternoon.
Ms O is modeling it for me since I didn’t want to spoil the surprise. I must of snapped a half a dozen of these before I got one that wasn’t blurry. Man, toddlers can MOVE!
I made this hat out of some remnant wool which was super cheap so it cost me less than $3 to make. The wool is simply luscious, so beautiful, soft and just the right color. I can’t figure out what the blend is since the info wasn’t written on the tag, but it’s much nicer than the stuff I made my boys’ caps out of- dang.
In the end, with fingers crossed, the gifts were given *and* enjoyed by all. Whew!
Now, for tonight, wall boards for Augie’s teachers which are to be given tomorrow. Along with 24 fabric covered tacks.
Oh, don’t you worry, it’ll get done. Come back and see.
