Snow Day!

We have a big snow storm coming our way today. They are predicting 8-16 inches of snow here before the weekend is over. The perfect kind of day to stay home, make brownies, coffee and knit on some lace. I started the Bee Fields Shawl last night. I'm excited. It is so nice to be working on something that has no deadline and is just for me. Selfish isn't it? Sometimes you need to be a little selfish to keep your sanity right? Here's to a little selfishness this holiday to keep the sanity at your house:)

BDiddy took the camera to take pictures of the kids ice fishing so I'll have to post pictures later. I have all my Christmas knitted gifts done! But sadly not all my other gifts bought. Next week I will have to brave the stores for the rest.

We went out to the kids school for a breakfast with Santa and then the kids could go shop with "elves" to get gifts on their own. It is a really cool idea and they loved going and getting their own gifts without our help. They even wrap them so no chance of seeing it accidently, but you have to tell the kids not to give it away. The other nice thing is most of the gifts were around 2-3 dollars and nothing was over $10.

In January Jess and I are going to start sweaters for ourselves. We have been talking about it for at least 2 years and decided once the holidays are over we'll get going on that. Anyone care to join us? I should think up some name for it and we could have a KAL. No certian pattern just one you like for yourself. Comment if you're in!

I would love to join your "KAL", but not until next year, if you gals do another one. I just have too much stuff going on! Oh, I got the pattern for the clogs, have yet to start on them, but I can't wait!

I think we all need a little more selfishness!!
You especially deserve it having done all your knitted gifts.
We braved the toy store today, I was ready to fight for the choice toys but there really wasn't that much of a crowd.
