Making Progress

Sunday, November 27, 2011

Today was another dreary day.
Another one...ughhhhh.
Gray, depressing, little rainy, cloudy...the sun absolutely nowhere to be found.
We stayed home all day long, all of us.
And if you want to know the truth, I never even got out of my pj's, except to shower
and put clean ones on.
But we did get a lot of stuff done around the house.
We are making great progress on the laundry room and playroom...I think I am rubbing
off on Eric now.

I started on an advent calendar, maybe I will finish it up tomorrow.
I used pages from an old, falling apart children's book and made them into little pockets by
gluing the sides.
Then I used my fancy new border press thing (?) on the top.
Don't you love actually making something with stuff you already having laying around
the house? I am going to fill the little pockets with activities and fun holiday things we can
all do together.

We also made hot chocolate with marshmallow snowmen.
I am realizing that it won't be too long before we are making real snowmen.
Eeek...definitely don't think I am ready for that yet.

So that's what was going on around here today, taking it easy and trying to recover
from a fun, busy, kinda crazy weekend.
Hope everyone has a great Monday.
Meet me back here for Virtual Coffee tomorrow bright and early.
