Busy, Busy, Busy!

Christmas time is always so busy. I still have to find stocking stuffers for hubby and I need to finish the two quilty gifts for MIL and my niece. Things to do and not enough time to do them!
And when you get busy, you tend to make mistakes. Lindsay, don't worry about the dress. I messed up one of the bags. You know, the Sunbonnet Sue bags? Yeah, I put a pocket in upside down! That was interesting to fix. I couldn't turn the liner upside down because I'd already cut where I boxed the corners and there were holes where the magnetic clasps went. But I did it!
The elves have been busy as well; getting into silliness!
They got into the kid's Halloween candy...
were found snuggled in a Santa hat reading "The Grinch"...
and this morning seemed to be taking a marshmallow bubble bath! They know not to touch the elves (they won't move anymore if you touch them) but I think some kiddos sneaked some marshmallow snackage this a.m.! Hope your family is loving getting ready for Christmas!

Way to fix an upside down pocket! That's pretty awesome!

And those elves are so funny! I love the marshmallow bath!! I saw a picture of someone's who was making a snow angel in some flour. It made me laugh!

Oh man I wish the elves had been around when my kids were little - at 15 they are way too cool for them now but i would have had a lot of fun with them when they were younger. Enjoy!
