Santas Elf has been busy..

I have been a busy elf working on secret gifts. I am trying my best to make this a homemade Christmas. I am doing okay at this point. I do realize how ever that if I decide to do this every year I need to start sooner in the year. I think I am getting crocheters elbow from all the work I have been doing. I would love to learn to knit someday, don't get me wrong I am able to do the basics but need to be taught the correct way to do it. Holding the needles between your legs can not be the most efficient method. I am self taught in most of my crafting, looking at books is how I've learned. Knitting has just not been as easy to do. One day right?! For now I will stick to my crocheting which I am very proficient at.

How has your holiday shopping/gifting been going?! (the above picture is in my kids disastrous toy room. Tripp loves checking our ears for infections, must stem from all of his and the tubes he now has because of it)

Too cute of a picture! Lisa, you look like a babysitter in with the kids. Ha!
Gotta love Doc Tripp! I bet he took good care of you.

Speaking of learning how to do new things. You'll never guess what I asked for for Christmas............... a sewing machine. Maybe you don't realize just how strange that is coming from me. Sean told me he thinks I may be turning into a Mennonite woman. He said he draws the line at the white cap! Ha
Sorry I can't make the party. I was really looking forward to it.

I've always wanted to make a homemade Christmas, too. But I tend to think about that in late November. When you remember this year, let me know so I can start, too. ;)
