My 2016 resolution in exactly 40 words. I challenged my olders to do the same. Here's to a new year!

My husband got me one of these "adult coloring books" for my Christmas present this year. It amazes me what some of these costs for simple pages printed and bound but I guess whatever sells right? I am enjoying having these at my desk at work to slowly go through since it will take me a good long while due to how detailed it is. I am thinking of splurging and bringing my nice colored pencils from home vs dollar store colored pencils that are breaking every pencil stroke.

Some time to reflect on the last week and share some things that have made me grateful.
...wool socks. For real. If you do not own a pair, or 3, you need to. I promise. You will thank me later.
...passing emissions testing on the first try with my car. This never ever happens and we usually end up with crazy repairs needed before we can get new license plates.
...receiving Shemp's body and paw print back. Made it even more surreal but actually put me at peace to know he is home again.
...a brother who decides to spend his free time with his nieces and nephews and babysits almost on demand.

Remember how in the past I have always said, "I don't sew"... Well. I didn't. Until now. Randy was supposed to have helped me with Beanie and Mark's PJ pants for Christmas after the entire sweater fiasco. One thing lead to another and they ended up my lap at work. I will be finished with them with maybe 2 days to spare but they will be done! Mind you they are not perfect but I hope all of the kids enjoy their handmade gifts this year.
What are you crafting this year?

On Saturday morning St. Nicholas came to visit with our kindness fairy, Sally. He brought gold coins, candy canes and peppermint patties with a nice little note to remind the kids to be "sweet" to one another.
What did St. Nicholas bring your family this year?
