Mark comes from Minnesota and this is what "real" weather looked like when he was growing up.
So if you want to hear the weather caster in Minneapolis/St. Paul making fun of Californians, watch this short video. And do NOT miss her last line. Dripping with sarcasm... I get it.
Speaking of snow, last week I saw a link on the Sew Mama Sew website, under "gifts for geeks." It was a link for Star Wars snowflakes, along with a video on how to fold the paper in case you don't remember. I printed some out and gave them to Aaron. Christa was out of town, so after the kids were in bed, he made good use of his time.
I think Yoda is my favorite.
It's cold enough to wear a stocking cap. Jessie knitted this one for Levi, and now Gabriel is wearing it.
We had "soup and cookie day" the other day--my favorite holiday tradition. Aaron, Christa and kids come over for homemade soup, then they either go shopping or go to Starbucks, while the kids and I make cookies.
sometimes the chocolate even ends up on your nose
They are supposed to be Christmas mice, with a chocolate covered cherry body, but I mistakenly got the ones with no stems--so no tails for these little critters.
I think they still tasted okay, however.
Of course, the ladder-climbing, musical Santa gets a lot of attention.
Mark was watching football the other day, rewound the DVR when he happened to see this--a torn football jersey getting repaired. On the sidelines. Because college football teams always travel with a sewing machine, right?
And finally, are some of your presents being delivered by
Amazon Santa-zon? This would be tragic.
P.S. There's still another day for a chance to win the Sew Mama Sew giveaway here.
