17 Days down.....

I hear those sleigh bells jingling ;) Another night I am getting in so very late, and again I apologize. I wasn't made aware that out of towners were coming so soon, and I ended up spending another night away. The kids Aunt is in from California for the holidays, so they spent time catching up and visiting. Dad seems to be okay with the new meds which is freaking fantastic! Thank you all so much for your kind words and well wishes. It really means a lot.

I finished some of my projects though- so that was also another huge plus. It was nice with some away from kiddo time to get them wrapped up. Its so hard to craft with them over your shoulder asking every why they can think of, and wanting to help "glue or cut" LOL I don't mind them helping at all, its just when you feel crunch time and are striving for perfection for a gift- then its more like the "alone" time crafting. I'm rather proud with my turnouts and will snap photos tonight to share with you all, and a few last minute hybrid ideas for you all as well tomorrow.  Ugh, but I didn't care too much for the major mess I made in my process of crafting. I thought kids were bad when it was cut and paste time.... I never had so many slivers of paper everywhere LOL. 

Speaking of messes, I wasn't the only one making them today. During breakfast Dallas decided he wanted to really clean his bowl up. It was too full to pick up and drink the milk from, as he quickly found by spilling it on himself. So he went with the puppy approach LOL. OR- If you are REALLY in the Christmas mood- The "Lil Piggy" approach LOL! I couldn't resist, so I snapped it with my phone. 



The face I got from him was priceless, and of course I didn't help the matters any by laughing hysterically at him. Once he figured out I was laughing because of the slurping, then the others chimed in doing it as well. Needless to say the coffee table got a bath in milk today LOL. 




Okay, now what you all been waiting for .......

Hi, this is a great gift. I unzipped the files and it looks like part one and two of 17 came through on the two links you provided . . . no 16? Help - can't see how to get day 16. Your gifts are amazing - thanks for them! Wishing you the best!

Anonymous: I'm thinking that Liz just divided up the "I Didn't Do It" kit... because it was so big or something of the like. My 2 links I downloaded had different things(pieces) in each of them. :)

Lynna said...

You have been so generous with all of these goodies you've been giving away. Thanks so much! Can't wait to see pics of your projects you've been working on! And I thought it was just my kids who thought it was funny to drink like puppy dogs...and me the adult finding it funny...LOL :-)

So glad to hear things are going well with your Dad's medicines!! The pics of your kiddo are so cute.

Thanks for your gifts!!

cosmictadpole said...

Thank you so much! This is an awesome kit!! I had the same issue as "Anonymous." I understood your post to say that there were two parts for day 17, and then another separate download for day 16, which I can't find. I'm perfectly satisfied with what I was able to download, but I just want to make sure I didn't miss something ;) Thanks again for sharing your unique and wonderful kits!!

Marif said...

Thank you so much for yet another "giftfull" day!!
I know how busy you must be, I only have one son and I'm trying to multiply my crazy schedule by 4 to try to imagine... it's a really scary thought, lol!
Good luck with it all!
