Knitting Poetry – Christmas Haiku (Christmas Countdown Day 23)

I wish you a merry
Eve of Christmas Eve today
Knit on, Happy Friend

or

December is short
Christmas Day is almost here
How goes the knitting?

or, perhaps

Composing Haiku
While knitting this dumb stocking
Is straining my brain

 A sneak peek at the stocking I am making for me. (Who says purple isn’t a Christmas color?)

‘Tis the Season to Make Candy (Christmas Countdown Day 22)

Christmas baking and candy making is twice the mess and ten times the fun when the  littles help in the kitchen.

The Dancing Queen and The Boy helped make cookies with the cookie press.

That cookie press was lots of fun. Everybody had to try it.

The Princess and The Munchkin helped make fudge.

And, after two failed attempts, The Bookworm and I conquered the peanut brittle.

Yum.

So, what’s cookin’ at your house?

What’s in Your Stocking, Girl? (Christmas Countdown Day 21)

Stocking stuffers for my girls

 

1 white play silk and a packet of Koolaid for dyeing it
1 tin cup with cocoa and candy cane
1 kids bath bomb (from Cheeky Maiden)
1 Hello Kitty lipgloss
1 can silly string
1 bouncy ball
small notebook and pen

the little girls each get a doll from Nova Natural (specifically, this one for The Princess and this one for The Munchkin. The doll in the picture above is for The Dancing Queen) while the big girl gets a box of artists pencils and “The Parent Trap” DVD (the old version with Hailey Mills because it is waaaay better than the new one)

So, what’s in your stockings?
