We have overnight guests next week from Monday through Saturday, so I'm also trying to get three guest bedrooms tidied up and ready. I'm almost there; I think by the time everyone arrives I should be pretty much finished. Today I'm hoping to at least get all the guest beds made up.
I'm not even close to finished with all the Christmas gift crafts I was supposed to have finished by now, and I have yet to wrap a single gift! I did finish one of the four scrapbook calendars, one pair of socks for Ben, and I've partially finished some of the ornaments for my grandmothers. At least I still have a few more days to finish! Here are some of my favorite pages from the first scrap-calendar:Three more to go! I also need to finish another pair of socks and put the final touches on the ornaments. And I still have holiday baking to do! I'm hoping to get some of that done tomorrow. I'm trying not to take on too much this season so I can really enjoy it with Maddie, so my parents will be bringing our traditional Christmas breakfast - homemade cinnamon rolls (usually burnt by my dad). And we're having fairly simple dinners for the holidays - New England Clam Chowder for Christmas Eve, and Prime Rib for Christmas Day. Simple and yummy!
I'm also really looking forward to after-Christmas knitting! I have a couple projects I want to start for myself that I can't get to with all the Christmas gift knitting!
Hope you're all having fun this season!
