It's still a little dark outside and, amazingly, my house is quiet. Most everyone is still sleeping and Avila is snoring on my lap. She always pops up when I wake up, but generally isn't really ready to be awake. So today, she chose to sleep on top of me.
We're only a week out from Christmas and, per usual, I feel totally unprepared. One day, I'll be on my game and get everything finished in July so that I can really savor Advent. One day.
I was really proud of our ability this year to make about 90% of our gifts. A few for the kids will be purchased (I can't make books or boots!) and some were bartered from artisans and crafters on etsy. I was proud, until a read my sister in laws blog and she made ALL of their gifts. She always beat me :) But, she's a veritable wonder-woman!
My week will be spent with my knitting needles and and sewing maching finishing up this and that. Hopefully everything will come together without too many long, late nights!
