Shortly after my last post I got a crazy fever. I have barely slept and barely moved in the last 24 hours. Sigh. Such is life. I have learned that if I am going to be sick it is much better when hubby is on vacation and can take the kids. I planned all 7 day of Christmas, but it isn’t looking like I will be participating in many. Either way, it has been a good week. For earlier post: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4
Now for Day 5
Lily is feeling much better today so both kids had a chance to enjoy the day.
The gift for today was pretty fun. I made up a sewing kit for Lily and hubby did up a building kit for Ian. They are both ‘real’. I think real and small is much better than a bunch of bright plastic fake stuff.
Lily got fabric, scissors, needle, lace, and elastic. She got to pick out more fabric and thread at Grandmas to finish off the kit. Ian got a hammer, 2 screwdrivers, safety glasses, a tape measure as well as nails and screws and a block to put them into.
Donuts. The best donut shop I have ever been to is the ‘Blair Bakery’. It is amazing! It is in between us and Grandmas house so whenever we go to Grandmas during the week early enough in the morning we get donuts (which isn’t very often at all). But, this morning it was part of the plan. … it was a bad day to be sick and miss out 🙁
Ginger bread houses at Grandmas house with the cousins. I got a kit of 5 little houses to make a village on half price Monday on Christmas clearance.
Costs for the day
- Gift – $4 for Lily’s Scissors, $10 for Ian’s tools
- Treat – $10
- Activity – $5 for kit
Total = $29 (most expensive day of the week so far)
So, while I was sitting here this morning I got on and try to start figuring out Pinterest. There is so much stuff on there! Anyways, I wanted to make up a few pins. I have to say I like the quote pins the best. Here are the ones I came up with.
Okay, now I am going to bed and hoping that I will wake up tomorrow feeling young and alive again. I will not be posting until next year :), I will post Day 6 and Day 7 together Sunday morning January 1.
