Tonight I get a night off! I used to play a game with some friends of mine called Pokeno, but once the girls came along and Bill started working nights, I couldn't play anymore. But at Christmas time, my brother-in-law offers to watch the girls so I can go play. We do a Dirty Santa gift exchange, which is always a lot of fun. I have gotten a lot of really cute Christmas decorations from my Pokeno group.
This year, I decided to make something instead of buying something. I had seen a Pin for a similar little elf and figured I could whip one up without a pattern (because the pattern for the Pin was not in English and crochet patterns rarely translate well). I think he turned out really cute.
I got a little crafty with my presents for Bill's side of the family. I had mentioned a few weeks ago that I was having Chocolate Gravy for breakfast and not a single one of them had ever heard of it. It's a Southern thing, and they're all Yankees.... but it's soooo good. (Not really good FOR you... you're basically eating warm chocolate pudding for breakfast) So I decided to give them a taste. I mixed up all the dry ingredients and put it in a mason jar. Then I slapped a label on with directions and sent them off on Tuesday. I can't wait to find out how they like it.
