Hope all is well out there! Things are going well here and I think we are almost time adjusted now (although seems like Brenna is starting on a cold today - yuck!).
My mom and Brenna decorated the Christmas tree here yesterday - Brenna had lots of fun with decorating - we used all the new felt ornaments that we made since Brenna and I came back. Now, we all just need to figure out how to guard the tree against the crazy cat Louie here - he is into everything (he sure fits the description of curiosity killed the cat - wonder how many lives he has already used up??). Louie is not a great cat with all my projects - he keeps trying to lay all over my new fabric and coats here. I am learning quickly to put all my stuff behind closed doors that I don't want him in!
My skirts are all almost done (well the 3 that we started, lol!) except for ironing and some hand sewing on the inside :-) Thanks for all your wonderful help mom - your the best!! I will have to share some pictures after we get back to Germany - a new fashion show of mom attire :-)
We went out today to pick up some of Brenna's Christmas gifts that she made - only half were done, but at least they were the ones we needed for leaving tomorrow :-) I'm not doing very well getting my Christmas cards mailed out - please don't be offended when I just hand them out!
Brenna fell in love with a pair of pink jelly shoes today (they were on sale for a $1 at Wal-Mart) - she put them on as soon as we came in the house today and hasn't taken them off! I think they may be a new favorite shoe for the house (at least for the winter, lol). I thought maybe I could leave them here for next summer, but I think she will probably discover pretty quickly if I try to leave them behind.
Well, I need to work on some more Christmas gifts! I have been slacking there (and working on my own projects too much).
