all done!

Yay! this bear order is finished!
They're finished. well, except that they need tags still. I m out of shrinky dink plastic, thats what I usually make them out of. will get some tomorrow then off they go! I hope she likes them.

I dont know what happen to him, but the girl that ordered these bears lost her father last year. I think this is the first christmas with out him. the bears are going to grandchildren. She wanted to order some quilts to. but I dont do quilting!

So YAY!!! its FRIDAY!! I'm so glad. It seems like it was a long week. it really wasnt, I had tuesday off! Tomorrow I'm going to do a little bit of Christmas shopping. I need to get busy, most years I've already got it half done by now! I dont even know what to get for the boys. probably tools, but they will have to tell me exactly what they want! Bethany wants a GPS tom tom. Jennifer wants to be surprised. My husband needs slushy barn boots.. Ive decided that for my husbands sisters and their families, I'm going to bive then movie tickets. we dont exchange anything big. I was thinking about telling them other then the kids that I didnt want to exchange anymore. His sisters are easy enough to find things for. But their husbands.. I dont have a clue.. and they have money and buy what they want! so a thought a night out at the movies would be good!

I keep thinking about our friends that have traveled to Omaho Nebraska for Silver Bella! I know they are having the greatest time tonight!!!! I wish i was there with them. maybe next year. I cant wait to see everyones pictures and to read their stories when they get back!

a little work in progress here:

Has everyone touched base with their partners for the snowman swap? I havent heard any complaints, so thats good! I hope everyone is happy with their partners and is ready to whip up their snowguys! I'm excieted about mine. Ive started on one.. but I have a lot of work to do!

Did you notice the all the ♪ christmas music ♪ I loaded on my playlist tonight? I have more I want to add, maybe over the weekend!

well girls.. not much to tell ya about of show ya tonight.. im tired and I think Im going to bed! so Night night!
