Yeah, they've entered the 60s while I wasn't looking. Lots of shift dresses, high necklines, sleeveless, and way too short for me to sit and bend over in. I'm trying to find something for Christmas events with very little luck. Boo.
Though I am the proud owner of a Peggy Carter shirt and a pair of Alexander Hamilton socks...
It's been snowing for the past six hours or so. But it's fairytale snow...it looks all silvery coming down, and is very light and fluffy on the ground. I've cleared the driveways and the cars twice, but in about ten minutes and with a broom. This kind of snow I don't mind too much!
Hope everyone's warm and dry tonight.
I need to unChristmas the house. There's not a huge amount: stockings and hangers, the kids' little tree, the big Christmas tree, and the nativity set. I also want to give all the holiday things a good clearing out. I'm keeping the Christmas village, though I didn't set it up this year, but I don't really care about much else.
Hope everyone's 2015 was put to bed happily, and that 2016 treats you all well.
So, what did I do in 2015?
I had a baaaaaaaaaybeeeeeee!! Who is fat and happy and awesome. And still not having anything to do with people food at nine months old.
I made some beautiful garb for the children for the Renn Faire, and I went to the Faire outside of Philly for the first time.
Danced in the show for Ukrainian dancing. Just the finale, but still.
Went to Disney World en familie.
Made a bunch of kiddy jammies and long underwear out of wool sweaters. I need to posts pictures...they are super cute.
Got pneumonia. Frowny face.
"Mom, [boy on the bus] asked me what the fox says. I told him they yip. He said no, they sing some ring a ding song. I said no they don't, that's bells, foxes yip. I don't know where he's getting his creature facts, but that was very wrong."
In completely unrelated news, I have pneumonia. And codeine. I don't like the pneumonia and am undecided on the codeine.
If you never hear from me again, please assume my entire family was eaten by our Christmas tree. It is a hulking beast of a thing. It's only 7 feet tall, but it seems absolutely huge!
I'm keeping a close eye on both Alec and Mr. Hudson the cat. And if it starts singing motown classics we will evacuate immediately.
Katrina just wrote her first fan letter, via lj message, to the very funny, very talented, and possibly very sparkly ursulav. Katrina is convinced she must be sparkly, to be the source of the glory that is Harriet the Invincible.
We have read the first 12 chapters in the past hour and a half, and are only taking a break because my voice is tired and the baby woke up. I read the whole thing last night in the bath. It's a delightful story, and also serves as a child's first snark primer.
