Dear Santa.....send elves!

I need elves. Or more hours in a day. Or not to have 2 kids under the age of three. Or for Christmas to be postponed a few days.

Felted bag--almost done. Just got the guts to stab holes in it for the handle. I knew if I messed it up, I'd be screwed.

Mary's gift--Almost done. Maybe tonight. John's out in the garage working on an additional part to it:).

Ellie's gift--Ugh. Maybe. Thank goodness I got her something off Etsy.

John's gift--Arrived Friday and it turned out great (so glad I didn't try to make it). I really hope he likes it.

Cranberry salad for Christmas Eve is cooling. Need to make banana bread, apple pie and a cheesecake. Oh, and help with the chili for Christmas. Wow, that seems like a lot. I can't believe I made a ham, homemade chicken and noodles, mashed potatoes, cranberry salad, rolls, 2 pies and a cheesecake last year. AND hosted! And couldn't figure out why I was SO FREAKING TIRED. I couldn't believe how tiring and stressful hosting 17 people was. I was just exhausted from it........and then I found out 2 days later I was pregnant:) (although I should have known when the week before I was doing puzzles with Mary and fell asleep at 6:30pm with a puzzle piece in my hand.)

I am hoping to have pics of everything I've made. I may have to do it at night with the flash on as I just don't see having time to do it in the daytime.
