As usual, I planned too many projects for myself. It started with stockings. I made stockings for Allen and I before we got married. Then, I started making them for family. Once I made them for one child in a family, of course I had to make one for all of them. Two years ago, when it was Jacob's first Christmas, I told my sister that I did not have time to make him a stocking (I was working full time, in school, and in the sick pregnant stage.) and I would make it the next year. Well, the next year, I had Ashlyn, Allen was gone, and I was still in school. So, I was going to make one for Jacob and Ashlyn this Christmas. Then, with the baby boom in our family, I needed to make four stockings for Christmas. I did manage to complete the first 3 toward the beginning of the month, but I left Ashlyn's, since it didn't need to be mailed or anything. I finished it TODAY, on Christmas eve. Nothing like the last minute on projects. I also decided to paint a set of table and chairs for Ashlyn, er, Santa decided to paint a set of table and chairs for Ashlyn. Fortunately, she has no clue, so I was able to leave the project out while I was working on it. But, now, it is just 30 minutes short of Christmas, and I have 2 pies, cookies, and a breakfast casserole completed for tomorrow. Plus, all of the presents are under the tree and in what turned out to be a gigantic stocking.
Allen, proving his point, that the stocking is ginormous.
