0 degrees

It is freaking freezing here. When we got up this morning, 0 degrees. We had to jump start Todd's truck. We've know the battery was getting weaker tend to put things off that aren't an absolute necessity - especially in the winter and at Christmas time. Today he will go buy a new battery.

Yesterday was extremely cold. Come to think of it, Saturday was cold here too.
Saturday was spent at play practice - and cleaning and doing a little sewing. I'm making headway on the gifts. Todd also went hunting and shot an 11 point buck - at 8:30 a.m. Which was perfect - then he didn't have to sit outside all day!
Our church's Christmas Play was yesterday - here is a video of 1/2 of 1 of the songs they sang. I would have so loved to video the entire thing - but I left the video camera sitting at home on the kitchen table (when I put it down to go get the camera - rather than put it in my pocket!?!)

Afterwards I tried to get a nice picture of Jessie and Tyler in front of the tree they decorated during the play - and this is what I got:

Afterwards, my parents came over because we had seen these birdies. Mom cut them out, and I sewed them. Then Jessie wanted one - so I did the bright pink one for her. They are now sitting in our Christmas tree on the branches - but I forgot to get a better picture. Hopefully my Mom took better pictures (of both the Christmas play and the birdies!)

I would show the gifts I have finished so far, but someone showed Jessie how to get onto my blog, and she was reading back posts and I don't want to show what I have finished that is hers or Tylers. So on the 26th I will do a show and tell of every single present I've made.

And next year.....I'm so starting this in January. or February.

Yahoo! Awesome 11 point buck. CONGRATS & good eating to all of you!

I smiled at the children singing. Don't you just love their young voices and enthusiasm?

Happy sewing to you. I'll look forward to your wrap-up after Christmas.

Stay warm. Safe travels to all who may be crossing the miles to come together. Know a wonderful Chrismtas Eve & Day of great love, joy, peace and happiness! Ana :)

Mmm, venison for you. Since my daughter is restricted from internet access for the rest of the year, I don't need to worry much about her right now, but I do find it a bit annoying when she would read my posts and comment at the dinner table. ;)

Good looking deer. Very fortunate to get him early too. I have been in the woods so cold that I couldn't pull the hammer back on my gun. I was so mad I wanted to just throw the gun at the deer and hope for the best.

Anyhow, well done...worthy of a mount?
