... but do you realize it's only 2 months until Christmas? *gasp!*
For most people that's no big deal, but for crafty people who try to make a lot of their gifts, this is crunch time.
If you look over to the right, I've started a little To Do list for myself. I'm extremely honored that I've had a few people commission me to make things for them this year. So far, that's what's on the list. There will be more. I have to make stuff for the girls, and Zoe's birthday is right after Christmas, so I have to keep that in mind also. (People with post-Christmas birthdays always get the short end of the stick, don't they?) And I'd love to sneak in a few decorations. We'll see how it goes.
But today.... today I really need to make the girls' Halloween costumes. I've been procrastinating because I am totally not excited about them. They vetoed every exciting idea I had. Now they're just going to be fairies (possibly wing-less) in tutu dresses. Meh. At least they'll be easy.
On a different note... we had parent-teacher conferences yesterday. It always blows me away to hear how my kids are at school. Heaven knows that at home they're crazy little goblins, but at school they're just everything I could ever hope they would be. Sweet, patient, smart, helpful. Olivia's apparently painfully shy in class, which she comes by naturally, but that was probably the worst thing I heard out of their teachers. I am a very proud Momma.
