Finished this one last night. Wow that sled felt massive!

So, as I waited on the boy to come home and started this one -

I'll Get my Elves on That

This Santa has some massive clothes! That's well over 2 hours of stitching there.

And DH came through with a frame for Red Birds -

Red Birds

Need to get glass for this and then get it on the wall. Not sure I'll get it done for Christmas. Doesn't matter - I think this will be hanging on my wall all year long.

The cookies are done...well, except for those raisin ones. Courtney and I will attack those bad boys tomorrow!

Otherwise, I am set to greet the red suited one. Now, if DS is able to get out of work Christmas Eve. Somehow he missed the memo we were having everyone over. Teenage boys... sigh!

Okay - I'm off to nap.Only 4 hours of sleep last night.
