only 10 sleeps until santa comes! are you ready?

wow!!  I feel I have not had a minute to do any blogging!  not only that but Ive not done any real christmas crafting.   those darn bears have taken up most of my play time.    two more days of bears and then I wont even think about them again until janurary.    
The house is decorated.  well, I never did put the garlands up in my bedroom, or the wreath that goes in there.. and I also didnt change the quilt and shames yet.  maybe I still will.. maybe I wont.  
and, Ive not done any baking except some cheating baking with Torry and Marla yesterday when they came for Grammies christmas sleep over! 

We had a lot of fun!   they each decorated their own trees.. which they loved doing...
We made popcorn  (which they loved watching more then eating..)  and watched rudolf.
We attempted to go to bed all in my bed.. booboo (grandpa) slept on the couch.  I eventually also slept on the couch..  one little pie... (that would be torry) tried to talk to me all night...  
The next day they made special presents for their mommys and daddys!
Which involved painting their hands brown... 
Which they loved!
And then their was the marathon baking and decorating of a batch of sugar cookies..   which even though I rushed them through it they loved.    
In between all of that, they played hard, watched christmas shows, fought a little..  and collected a million hugs and kisses from me.   well and there was a short sit in time out for one of them.. but we arent telling anyone about that!  lol!  
they are the most special little people.    Next year we will do it again.. only.. it may become a day long event and then they can go home to sleep!  lol!!  next year Violet will be able to come!  

I only have three bears left to make.. 
Im about to cut them out right now..  
I hope youre all enjoying the holiday season...      
only 14 sleeps til santa comes!  
heres a little kitty treat..    
UP on the house top.. kitty Claws!

toodles for now! Ive got to cut out those bears and get ready for work..  a long busy work week ahead and then next week Im only working one day.
have a great day my bloggy pies!

You are such a good gramma even when you are overwhelmed with all you are doing you make time for your little "pies". I love that about you, Viv.

Good luck with the bears. Glad you are almost done with them. That was a big order this year. I am pretty much ready except I have to get one more ornament and a gift card..oh..and WRAP! Haven't even started that yet. UGH!

Have a great day at work and a great week. xo Diana

You throw such great sleepovers I'm sure the kids will be talking about them forever! Those are the things kids love to remember from childhood. I hope you get to fit in all the things you want to do. Nothing wrong with cheat cookies! They taste great!Hugs, Maggie

How fun that you are willing to host sleepovers. You are so hands-on. What fabulous memories your grands will have of their time with you. Good luck with the bear order. I can't wait to get this work week over with. My to-do list is a mile long. Christmas hugs!

Ps/did you always have word verification? Blogger is doing some strange things lately.

Merry Christmas.
