Yikes I didn't realize that it had been a week since I last posted. Bad bad blogger! I had a really busy week trying to get Christmas and Hanukkah obligations done and attended some parties and oh yeah worked...
I finished my handmade presents (woo hoo) last night--before midnight--even better! I had four helper-kitty elves assisting with the present wrapping. Oh we had fun.
Example: Kitty elf #1: Let's take this ribbon and rruuuuunnnnn!
Kitty elf #2: No even better let's eat this ribbon Yum!
Me: Let's not eat ribbon. Here play with the tape. Haha tape on your paw.
(Repeat. And shred some paper for good measure.)
Kitty elf #3: Here I'll get cat hair on this present before you send it.
Kitty elf #4: I'm not getting out of this box, you can't make me!
So with all that help, the box of gifts were mailed this morning (kitty elf #4 not included; cat hair probably a little). I baked a couple of batches of cookies for a cookie swap. And now I am trying to catch up on some emails, blog reading, laundry, and housecleaning. Tomorrow, I'll report on baking and the cookie swap.
