I made this thing when Son #1 was two and Son #2 was on the way.
It took me hours to make those characters - by the time I got to the cow and camels I knew proportion was not an option.
Let's just call this 'folk art'
I knew this was coming - last year the Wise Men were standing on their heads, the camels were perched on the palm tree trunks and we had sheep in the sky instead of angels and stars.
I think instead of putting chocolate in each pocket (along with the figure to put in the nativity scene) I will put money into the pockets.
That should spark the desire to carry on this tradition.
Bribery, you are my friend.
And boys, when I said "Grow Up!" I did not mean giving up stuff like this.
Their baby is a boy!
This is some of the other stuff I made.
My pottery room is full (over-full really) of items that need to be glazed.
Lots of beads and pendants for jewelry - fussy, piddly stuff.
To go with these that are waiting to be strung.
Many of these are Christmas orders.
I hate the glazing process.
Maybe I'd like it more if my pottery room wasn't the size of a closet.
I am stalling and putting it off..
Procrastination, you are not my friend.
I should do something about that.
I'm going to Les Ballet Jazz de Montreal with The Ladies on Tuesday night - so excited!
I know I will try some of their moves once I leave the building.
I hope for full black-out darkness when I try this leap.
I know it will not be successful.
And now I am leaving the house to go and pick up Son #1 from Silver Star Mountain Resort where he spent the night with 27 other people in his friend's dad's new condo.
I hope the condo is still in respectable condition when they leave.
I can't wait until he passes his N driver road test - two more weeks!!
Fingers are crossed that he doesn't make any mistakes - his friend hit a pedestrian - just a small nudge but a failure none the less.
I sympathize as did the same to a State Trooper in a Key West Florida gas station.
He was very nice and only limped for a short time.
Like an old car that needs a tune up, I have run-on.
So I'll chug to a stop now.
Have a great weekend everyone.
