Presents and Instructions

So remember that post about instructions? Yea, seems that once I figured out what I did wrong I was able to correct it and complete another one the same day. YAY ME! The second one turned out better than the first. I haven't decided what to do about that, yet. The one that didn't work according to plan is for a baby that isn't here yet, so really doesn't HAVE to go for Christmas, but I would like it, too....but....ugh. I'll figure something out. Tim is going to build me something to go along with the projects, but I don't know if he'll have time to do that before they need to be mailed. We'll see, I guess.

I have the third of five laid out and ready to go, I'll spend today getting parts sewed to it and hopefully have it finished before we go to the kids Christmas concert tonight. Watch for pictures of that tomorrow!!

Also, I bought the boys something totally cool (only $5!!), and found a lady that had a game to give away, so I snagged that. I don't know when I'll give it to them, but it's here.

Are you ready for the holidays? We got presents in the mail yesterday, so I know Tim's sister Steph is all ready! (Thanks, Steph and fam!) What presents are you making? What's your coolest gift that you are giving?

**EDIT: 3 DOWN, 2 TO GO! YAY ME!! (12:17 pm)

**EDIT #2: Just one left! I'm on a roll!! (3:02 pm)


  1. I made 160+ small bags of chex mix for all of Ethan's renters (good think Chex was on sale at Walmart for $2 a box). I tried out several of the different recipes on the Chex website, my favorite being one that is caramel tasting with popcorn.

  2. I so can't wait to see your projects....keeping us in suspense! hee hee! LOVE the surprise you got the boys....boy do Game Boys take me back! I think my mom still has ours at home! Too funny! I betcha the boys will LOVE it!!!! As for presents....I am so not ready yet for christmas....tomorrow is my last day of finals so then I can concentrate on christmas! YAY! I love christmas time!
