The past few weeks have been a little busy. Zac and I each had Christmas parties to attend, which was fun for us since we don't get out much, just us. My cookie party was a lot of fun, then again I had one-too-many amaretto sours. I brought a pair of gifts that were to be swapped during Dirty Santa and came home with a few gift cards for my parents.
Zac's party was just over the weekend in New Orleans. We went bowling and attended a cooking class. I've got a few Louisiana recipes to attempt sometime in the future.
Marie babysat for us and the kids made a whole bunch of homemade things, like ornaments and graham cracker houses. They had so much fun!
All the shopping is complete. Well, just about. Zac is bringing home one more thing for James, then it'll be complete. I've got all the gifts wrapped and ready for tomorrow night after the kids are in bed.
I'm giving the kids a two-week break for the holidays. My parents are coming for New Years, along with Emily and Alex. I finally finished Emily's purse, but still need to weave the ends away. Francesca's scarf is done, and her matching American Girl Doll's is half-done.
With my own two-week vacation, I'm going to get my house cleaned up. It's gotten a little out of hand since I've had to clean my closet out to make room for wrapped items. It's overwhelming, but needs to be done.
I had to quit my B&BW job... I wish I didn't have to, but the local one never got back in touch with me and the time I spent driving out to Slidell and back wasn't worth the gas money. I'm going to put in some more availability to GAC to make up for it and go from there.
