Ornament Afternoon

Getting Ready
Biting off more than I can chew? Perhaps, but that is what the holidays are all about, right? I'm hosting a little ornament party for my girls and a few of their friends. I have supplies for 5 different ornaments. Possibly too many, but that's okay is we don't get to all of them. I think it sounds festive and fun! I really hope the girls feel the same way. I'm nearly done prepping all the materials. I'll show you tomorrow or Sunday how I plan on organizing this whole shebang. Here are links to 3 of the ornaments we're going to make. I'll share the other 2 with you this weekend.

Darling Christmas fabric is from Jo in Japan. Terribly excited to use it!

And since we're on the subject of biting off more than we can chew, let me confess that we're hosting an Open House next week too. Yes, it is a lot of work, but I'm very much looking forward to it. I love the visiting, the nibbling, and, yes, I like the holiday cheer. I'll be back next week for some "what should I make" advice.

So tell me, what have you bitten off? If you're just sitting back in your clean house sipping egg nog, laughing at us crazy types, reveal yourselves anyway!

Random P.S.
Since we can't get pandora over here, I've been listening to Christmas music play lists on Youtube. The girls have been enjoying this one.

This week we hosted:
1. Neighborhood baby shower 1 week old for Baby Jack.
2. Book Club, which you sadly missed.
3. Enzo's class holiday party (can you say 20 adults and 15 kids?)

We wrapped up our week with the yearly tradition of waiting in line at Nordstrom to see Santa (whilst eating cookies, drinking apple cider and chatting with elves), followed by a trip the carousel and dinner at P.F. Changs.

Like you, I adore this kind of Christmas cheer and being surrounded by children. Have fun at YOUR parties!

I'm interested in the pasta creations -- let us know how it went.

I know this sounds cheesy but... warm 106.9 that radio station from seattle plays all christmas music all the time streaming online. I listen to it at work and kinda enjoy hearing about the weather and traffic in my hometown! xo S
