The shows went great. My kids were fabulous. I was so proud of them. It was a hectic long weekend, but I can't believe at one time I was in charge of that. How did I do it? How does ones brain forget that kind of stress?
I was burnt out Sunday, but pushed myself to get the tree set up. (not decorated) I also switched out the Christmas china from the storage to the cabinets, got the tables set up and put out the nativity set. Nothing is finished but it looks like Christmas vomited in my house.
Or as my kids used to say, "Mom, which one of your personalities made this mess?"
Mom is having an open house on Sunday at Sissies and I am sure it will be well attended. So I have a list of treats to help her make. I also have to practise the piano every day to play background. Don't hit the Christmas carols enough. Put in 1.5 hour practise Thursday and one hour yesterday. Hope to get some time in today.
I am going to mix up Kokokasse (coconut log cookies) and peppekkakor(pepper cookies) today ad they have to be refrigerated and then mom can bake at her leisure. I have to do at least 12 doz of each.
I have all the Christmas bath linens in the wash right now. Mom's room and bath are the first on the deep clean and I hope to get those done before I go to bed tonight.
BUT.... I have a bit of sewing to do before I do anything else and I also need to take my kids to dance at a rest home at 6 p.m. I also have a bride at 4 for a try on and i haven't even touched her dress. Yikes!
I wanted to do caramels, toffee and fudge later this evening.
okay someone gave the mouse a cookie.
have a great and productive day!
