What has been going on?

I've been so stinking busy for the last 2 weeks.  I didn't realize that our trip back to Missouri was coming up so quickly...and I'm really glad I've been working on stuff for awhile. I still have a bunch to do, but I'm slowly getting it done.  

I've had 2 orders for letters, so I've also been working on those. I got one finished yesterday, and hopefully the second order will get done tonight.  

First time working with rhinestones!  
I know that there were a couple girls that started to try and sell letters like I do, but all they were doing was putting scrapbook paper on them.  I just took it as it was...imitation. It was flattering, but as far as I know, I'm still getting orders frequently, and I haven't seen anything from any of them.  

I've got my friend Mary picking up party stuff before I get there, and then when she picks us up from the airport, we're going to put stuff together at my parents' house.  We're gonna make some record food stands, an octopus, and some other fun stuff.  I've painted the centerpieces and have labels for the food.  PHEW.  I'm also in the process of making diamonds out of paper and glitter to attach to the strings of balloons that are on the ceiling.  (in the sky with diamonds...)

We took Delilah to see Santa.  Suffice it to say, she was not a fan.

He was a very realistic Santa though, even had a real beard!  I saw a Miracle on 34th St moment when he let a kid tug on his beard.  I felt like I had witnessed a Christmas miracle!

We also had a fantastic Thanksgiving.  

Had a great time with friends, drank wine, played the Game of Things, and as usual...Delilah charmed everyone.  She was such a good girl.

I decorated the house for Christmas, and Ben humored me by playing Christmas music while doing so.

I love Christmas.
