Behind in Blogging, Ahead on Knitting

I have been a bit behind in blogging lately.  Can you blame me?  As the holidays approach, not only do I have to contend with the usual holiday preparations, but I had a gift list of knitting to tackle.  As of two nights ago, I am officially done with knitting gifts.  Yes, one more pair of socks needs to be blocked, but that is all!

It's a good feeling of relief to know that I finished with plenty of time to ship my gifts out.  The next question is, will I get them shipped on time?  As many of you  know, getting to the post office with a preschooler and a toddler can really be a challenge.  In fact, just yesterday I found a package in my car that I would have sworn had shipped the week before! 

Other winter-related news includes:

seeing our first bald eagles of the season over the WI river
Surviving a 10" blizzard with style
cooking and eating our first 3 venison meals
wrapping Christmas gifts with the preschooler
taking both children Christmas shopping separately so they could buy gifts for each other
writing Christmas lists

The Christmas list writing was especially entertaining.  I spelled words out and A wrote them down.  She was so proud of herself!  I will have to post pics of them later.  I think Santa and family will be able to find at least one item from each list.  However, I do think the "electric car" may be a bit beyond our means this year.  Oh, and no new baby sisters, either.  Sorry, girls!
