Fast and Furious!

Between shopping (I thought I was doing good.....until I made a list):


this is MY christmas present*. I lost the picture of the marathon shopping session I did on Saturday that I had to text to Todd when he asked me what in the heck I did all day. The kids were lucky they were able to squeeze into the Durango among all the packages and bags and didn't have to ride in the luggage rack.


Basketball practices:




believe me, 8:30 a.m. practices are no fun. But that two hours is nice to myself:)

And some furious knitting:


a back and one front side of Jessie's Central Park Hoodie. I still have to attach 1 side and the sleeves, and put on the hood and the button band ribbing. All is knit but the button band, the hood and 1 sleeve......


I just may pull it all off. I'm sure I'll be burning the midnight oil tonight and tomorrow night, but....


It will be so worth it come tomorrow night and Christmas morning and day.


Have a very Merry Christmas!
Kris


*yes, I buy my own Christmas presents. Thank you junk stores.....Saves us a lot of fights and headaches. This ancient wood cabinet will grace my kitchen, which will out of necessity get demolished sometime this coming spring.....

Good idea to get your own presents. Much less disappointment that way.

The cabinet is a real fine. It has character.
