We are getting a blizzard right now! We haven't had a white Christmas in several years. It messed up our plans to spend the evening with my family even though they are just a few miles down the street. The snow should be finished by morning, but there is a nice thick layer of sleet underneath (typical Oklahoma weather, tons of ice!)
I finished Ethan's Christmas stocking this morning at 1 am! I had my mom help stitch his name and a couple other items. I have spent countless hours putting together this stocking. I added more than what the kit calls for. I also made the stocking with velvet and lined with "silk" and topped with a cute fluffy cuff. I think it makes the stocking look much better than just stitched on the felt stocking it came with. Ethan's stocking is navy. I thought I would point that out since it looks kind of black in the picture. I didn't even get to touch Andrew's stocking. He's stuck with a plain one again this year. I have a whole year to work on that one...yippee! Think I'll put it off to the last minute? haha
I'm looking forward to tomorrow morning! We have Ethan's gifts all out. I can't wait to see what he thinks about them. I'm sure it will be an exciting day! I also want to mention that my cousin is in labor right now with her first baby! This will be my first great-cousin and it looks as though he will be a Christmas baby!
I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! I hope it is a wonderful fun-filled day with your loved ones.
