Christmas Music!!!

In light of my last post,
I have decided to share my secret stash of
Christmas music.

You're welcome.
Go clean the kitchen, fold laundry,
sweep the floors, and make lunch,
and feel happy because this music is awesome.

Merry Christmas!

Oh wait. the music, ha.

It's a secret, shhhhhhhhhhhhhh.....

Long time, no nothing

I know, I know, I totally fail at updates.
But hey, I'm busy, and that's life.

Michael Buble, you can sing your Christmas album into my headphones long.
As long as I don't actually have to see you sing it, because that annoys me.
I mean, you rock the 50's suit, but after that ehhhhhh.....

Back to updating though!!

I got every single piece cut out.

For lil kid #1

So, a striped (say that STRIPE-ed okay, it sounds cooler)  quilt.
Teal, turquoise, gray, blue, red, black, and white.
It's going to have a black backing. 
That way all that white dog hair will show up.

For lil kid #2

A fatter striped quilt, teal, orange, white toothpaste-er turquoise, yellow, green, and gray.
(In case you don't know your colors yet)
With a rockin' lime green back.

for kid #3

So, blocks, and stripes together, the white will be vertical stripes, and the blocks will
stack vertically too. Different pinks, orange etc. 

kid #4

Planes, and stuff. I really like this one. 
See those colors? 
I'm not naming them this time.

Get ready for Christmas peoples.
Cause, they totally started decorating the town already. 
For realz? They didn't even wait until after Thanksgiving-
that's my kind of decorating.

I told my mom, it got chilly for a couple days, and
the decorating committee jumped the gun. 

But hey! It is festive. And that is what counts.

Winter is a'comin'

Have you ever heard that old Christmas song,
"Christmas Is A'Comin'",
that Bing Crosby sings?

Our family discovered it a couple winters ago, and even the little kids 
love it. They go through the house humsinging parts of it.
"God bless you, gentlemen, God bless you,
if you haven't got a hmmhmmhmm, then God bless you!"

So for Christmas, I usually try to make something for my
sibs. Usually I make PJ's or something, and the open them 
on Christmas Eve and wear them Christmas morning.

But! This year I decided to be ambitious.
So amongst my shop orders, 
curtains for lovely windows ,
and, oh yeah, school,
I decided to make each kiddo a quilt.
A simple quilt,
but still. a quilt.

So! Since my siblings never look at my blog, I have decided to chronicle my 
progress. You are all sworn to secrecy.
Utmost secrecy.

It will be a bit before you see any lovely fabric though,
it is all laying ever so nicely next to my bed in a wicker basket,
waiting to be brought to life.

Until then,
and also 
and maybe a little
I Love Lucy.
