Have you thought of any gifts yet?
Good golly, put it that way and it really doesn't seem all that far off does it? But when I think of everything that's going to happen from now until then I feel like I have all the time in the world.
No I haven't figured any gifts out but I HAVE thought a lot about it and what kind of time I will have once classes start up again.
11 yr old neice = (she'll be almost 12 then) a ribbon poncho I think
7 yr old neice = (also almost 8 at the time) a ribbon poncho (different color of course)
3 yr old nephew = Maybe a bulky sweater with something on the front like a smiley face
DH = he got his sweater so now I have no idea
10 yr old son = sweater (have yarn, just need to start)
8 yr old son = bulky sweater w/ skull on it
6 yr old son = bulky sweater w/ something on it
3 yr old daughter = I have no idea, too many tempting things in her catagory
Mom/Nana = maybe a ribbon cardigan? (she's petite so it'd almost be like doing a kids)
MIL = socks? mittens? vest?
FIL = (the man who has everything) I have no idea
That about does it for my gift list. Oh crap, no it doesn't, I have the yarn and the pattern all picked out for my best friends birthday gift in October.
So, finish the afgan/mitered squares, do Meg's b-d gift and then on to sweaters and ponchos. At least it's an excuse to get more yarn LOL.
LOL that's funny Pam, because a few months ago someone discribed our family as big and I have to tell you that it took me by surprise because I don't see it that way. Now a family with five kids, that's big, but NOT four, nope four isn't big at all. *grin*
There are days I wish the parents of the kids who run around here would come and take them home so I could stop babysitting and then I realize that they're mine. Who was it who let me have kids??!!??
J/K, I'd not trade them for anything, my life would be so boring. I really like being a mom.
Let's see, think I'm going to save Aly's poncho for her christmas gift, still working on it, and will probably need to get more yarn.
