I did it!

I finally finished my nephew Nolen's stocking. It took forever and my wrist hurts, but it's done and Santa can fill it tonight. For some reason, my sister-in-law wanted the Grateful Dead bears on the stocking. I was puzzled since neither she nor nor my brother are fans, but I have to admit, it did turn out pretty darn cute! The other stocking is Nolen's big sister, Madelynn's stocking that I made two years ago.

I also made 50 cut out cookies and 256 crescent roll cookies. Why so many, you might ask? Because I'm mathematically inept. I thought I was doubling the batch and instead, I quadrupled it. Yes...I am just that clever. Sigh.

I still have to wrap presents. Guh. I'd better get to it - Santa comes early around here!

I love the stockings!!!!!

That is an insane amount of cookies to deal with at one

Hooray, you!

If you have too many cookies, you can give some away. Who doesn't like free cookies?

I don't have the patience to sit and do cross stitch - or knit - or anything which requires me to draw in the lines. ;)

I hope everything is sparkling with you and yours -
