Can't believe it's been a week since I posted last! Things have been really crazy around here lately. Finals were this week, for one thing. Ben had four of them spread out throughout the week, and is currently taking his last one right now!
Hat orders have been excellent! I have had just enough to keep me really busy, but not too much to handle. I have two orders finished and ready to send out this morning, and two hats left to do before Tues. Then I am taking a much needed break!
I have most of all my Christmas shopping done. I just have a few items for Ben that I need to pick up, and few stocking stuffers for the boys. I have been super sneaky this Christmas season, and I think playing Santa has been ultra fun! I feel especially pleased with myself for actually being able to hide 3 beanbag chairs in my mini van, and pick up my boys from school on the way home, and THEY NEVER NOTICED THEM! I couldn't believe it! Maybe I really do have super Santa powers!
As for myself, I pretty much already know what I am getting for Christmas. I make a list of "affordable" things I want and Ben buys them for me... it's that way every year. Works for me. This way I don't leave poor Ben hanging. Last time I did, he got me some things that HE would have liked to have. Better just to make a list for him. Then I have my secret list of things I REALLY want but there is no WAY we could afford them. My secret wish list: a Kindle Fire and a Serger. BIG wants... but totally unrealistic. What I am going to get: a computer game I have been eyeballing, and a hoodie. Getting cozy with a fun computer game? What more could this mama ask for? (Maybe I could suggest a coupon book of foot-rubs, dishes-be-gone, and sleep-in days -- that would make a GREAT stocking stuffer for me!)
What would you like for Christmas? And I am not talking world peace... even though that would be nice...
Oh... and here are a few updated Santa Pictures from Ben's unit Christmas Party. I thought Jake was going to flip, but he surprised everyone!
