Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeww!

I know, I know...
Bad Blogger!!! Bad Bad Blogger...

I have been so busy, it's been maddening... but I am finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel... or is that only dust in my eye? Hmm...

Well, first things first, my dental visit...
and my first chance to play Mrs. Claus...  (I love this part!!!!)

Dr. CutiePie is a gamer.  Now, he's an XBox360 Gamer... but I can't even begin to imagine a character from XBox that I would/could due any form of justice to via crochet...
so.. I went with SackBoy.    Pattern purchased here: SackBoy Pattern
 
Sure Sure.. I could have done Mario.. or PacMan (old schooled it..) but they aren't XBox either...
besides, his favorite game at the moment is Guitar Hero.. or was it.. Rock Band...
Hmm...
I forget...  which is why I got him a gift card for Game Stop, so he could get whatever he wanted!
Me, I just stick to my air guitar!!

And... of course, I couldn't forget Katie (his secretary/receptionist/office manager/all around go-to-gal)
Kitty Pattern purchased here: Alley Cats 
OH ... ALRIGHT, alright.
YES!! it's MY type of pressie!!!
But I don't know a single woman who wouldn't appreciate some good chocolate... and a ice-cold cup of coffee!!!  (Well, okay - but Katie likes Iced Coffee too!! - Must be a New England thang!)

Then, of course, there was the tree to decorate...


Each year, it is the one and only thing I ask for from Hubby.  I am not to much a material gal - I enjoy the simple things... and having a live Christmas Tree at Christmas is the most 'simple' and (to me) traditional.
...
but ... had I known that 3 more Christmas Pressies would just seem to appear overnight... I would have decorated it even faster!!!
Ain't they just the sweetest???  The 2 smaller dolls (peach and lilac) were done using a Size 1 hook using yarn.. and the larger one (pink - which is for a 3 year old) was used with a larger hook... I want to say a C hook.. 
Oh Lord, I'm having a hard enough time just remembering what I did this morning when I got up.....

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
that's right...
I figured, since there wasn't much else I could do.. and since my hands are hurting so very much from crocheting like a mad feind!! (There is another smaller pink fairy which is about 85% done, but still needs wings, tiara, and wand... I think I will work on that tomorrow night-talk about pushing the Christmas Eve deadline huh?)...
....
I started my baking.. (FINALLY!!)
This is the box of goodies went with Hubby to work this morning... and boy do they ever need the sugar rush!!! (hee hee)
There are 3 different kinds of chocolate chip cookies, brownies, butter cookies, peanut butter cookies, sugar cookies ... and my own little touch, a little bit of Italy.. Pistachio Loaves and Almond Biscotti (my Nonna's recipe *grin*)
Yeah... I'm sure this was a welcomed *surprise* this morning when they all had to show up at 6AM... Yes, 6!! On a Sunday...

oh?  Did I forget to mention??  Why is it that "
wasn't much else I could do" a mere 4 days before Christmas?
Well Hubby and crew are on "Storm Hours".. which means 18hours on.. 6 off - or rest..
because it started snowing Friday afternoon at about 2:30 and hasn't stopped yet.. LOL
And you want to know the SADDEST PART...
we probably still won't have a "White Christmas"...
Tomorrow it is supposed to snow in the AM... then turn to rain and sleet by mid-afternoon...
then Wednesday night... Christmas Eve... there is a 60% chance of RAIN!!

*sigh*

At least I will have the piccie ...

Seasons Greetings friends..
May your holiday be bright and all your wishes come true!

This is the time of year we can actually pass ourselves, at least that's the way I feel. Can I please ask you what pattern you used for the dolls? My grandaughter would love them.
Thank You

Dot said...

well you could send the box full of goodies this way.It looks so good. Tom is on a diet so no goodies here this year. but i think i will get just a few for myself since we are not going anywhere and none of the kids are coming. J have already made my Santa run to see the grandkids and seen to it they had the money cards so that way they cann get what they want . The tree is very nice maybe i will pull out the small one just to see the lights. have a great Christmas and a great New Year

Robbie said...

I agree with Dot, send those dolls, and the cookies my way...
Merry Christmas my dear friend, I wish all of you the best...

Cindy said...

Those dolls are adorable, I would love to get the pattern. Please let us know when it is available and where we can get it.

Doesn't it just suck having rain in December? They're calling for rain here on Christmas Day. Ugh. It's winter people! What's with the rain? And flooding? *sighs*

Oh my!! You have been busy!!! Great job on all. The dolls are adorable, the cookies look delicious and the tree looks great!! Sorry, but you can keep the snow, too old and to tired to shovel...I know Dr CutiePie will love his gift and so will his best lady of all trades, Katie. You're terrific!!

Debbie said...

I have to agree, OMG you have been busy. You did a wonderful job on everything!!! I love your idea and the chocolate and coffee, soooo good. The snow is wonderful and I sure you getting the storm today as it is snowing like crazy right now here! We got about 10" yesterday and should get that much today but love a white Christmas!

Merry Christmas to you and your family

Shirley said...

Very nice job, I am impressed! I wish I had your energy. I am trying to get an afghan finished for my son's girlfriend. She just told me she would like "one of those blankets that you make".

Yesterday I made 40 dozen cookies after church. I had the dough already made, it was just a ton of cooking. I kept hoping the power would stay on. You got all the snow, here in Northwest Ohio, we got ice on Friday morning and it is still here (1/4-1/2"). With today's winds, I hope the power stays on.

Hi, I just can't stand it where did you get those cute pixie fairy dolls you made?
Love them and your girls sooooo lucky.

Merry Christmas and thanks for giving a lift to my Christmas spirit.
