The Last Christmas Dinner

Well, we're officially moving onto New Year's festivities. Today marked the end of the Christmas meals. We had our in-laws over for the whole food and presents deal. My in-laws arrived an hour and a half early. Since I left everything to the last minute I was scrapbooking my mother-in-laws present with her standing right there. Oh well. We were thrown off a bit with the early arrival, but we made the best of things. What can you do, right? We had it nice and early though and were done by midafternoon. It was really Christmas lunch, not dinner, but whatever.

The rest of my day was spent feeding A(that does seem to take up most of all of my days) and sewing cloth diaper wipes. I found the cutest flannel awhile back. It's a print with skulls and the word SKATE written on it as well as some other things. Very cute. I'm making them double-sided - flannel print on one side and cotton terry on the other. I've just now learned how to sew, so they're very rough. They're nowhere nearly as finished looking as the cloth wipes that a lot of WAHMs (Work at Home Moms) make and sell. But who knows? Maybe someday I'll get good enough to make a little bit of money on the side. I was in a bit of a hurry to finish them up today seeing as we just ran out of wipes and I really don't want to buy more disposable wipes when I have perfectly good wipes ready to be made. So I got through quite a few of them today. I have some to finish. I'll post a nice pic when they're all done.

I'll leave you with a funny pic of A. There's a funny story behind this. I was packing up the food to head out to my grandparents' house for our Christmas Eve festivities. I was in a hurry and didn't realize that the seal on the bag of powdered sugar wasn't quite sealed. Oops. And the result of this below.
