Busy, Busy Bees!

As I'm sure it is with most families, we have kicked it into high gear around here. Operation Christmas is in full swing! I have been crafting, shopping, baking and wrapping (as in gifts, not the hip-hop rapping, but that might make the crafting and baking even more entertaining...) for the past couple of days. The problem with this is, that I can't really show you what I've been up to because the people I've been crafting for read this blog. I can show you a sock monkey or two, and promise you that on Dec. 26, there will be a serious post with lots of pictures.
This is Miss Priss, she is going to my Mom. I'm not sure who she is going to, but her tutu doubles as a hairbow, and if you can't tell she is very prissy!

These 2 are brothers. Silly and Willy. I made these for Lon's Grandma to give to 2 of the youngest Great Nephews. I'm not sure who is getting Silly and who is getting Willy, but I am sure they are gonna love 'em!

In the mean time, I will show you what the boys cooked today for lunch. They love to "make recipes" as Walker says. Today they made pizza. It was one of those Chef Boyardee box mixes, but they really thought they were something. Walker making his "just so" ever so gently.
Connor takes a more aggressive "beat it to death" approach. The sauce and cheese part was a little messy, so I couldn't really take pics. Lon ate it for lunch, so it must have been pretty good.

I've turned Walker into quite the little barista (coffee-making expert). He is officially my little helper these days and wants to do EVERYTHING I do, including making coffee. Luckily he listens well, and since we make it on our Keurig, it is not really involving any hot water so the burn factor is zilch. (I felt this needed clarification because a 3 year old really has no business making coffee.)

Tonight we are going to the Festival of Lights on James Island. It is spectacular, and the boys really love it, so that should be a lot of fun.

Tomorrow is Nana's Christmas party, so "Santa" will be making an appearance, and we have lots of goodies to bake. Walker is making and decorating sugar cookies for the first time, so that should be fun. I'm anxious to see if the boys recognize him this year. They haven't so far, but he doesn't talk a whole lot other than the HOHOHO's.

Lon also has a football game this weekend, and we have to finish our shopping, so it should be pretty eventful. I'll get lots of good pics tonight and try to put them up for tomorrow. These lights really do top anything I've ever seen. Hope you have a great weekend!
