15 days till Christmas!

Van's in the shop. I'd appreciate a little prayer that the bill isn't too high. Please?

M'kay. I just spent WAY too long sewing 25 jingle bells on 25 stockings and painting 25 names on said stockings for Justin's 3rd grade party. And THIS is why I am NEVER room mom. I am merely "helping" with the party, and I get such a fun treat? Yay... Actually, it's ok. I don't mind too much, but I do think that the kids won't give a flying fart. I did, however, make sure to point out to Justin exactly HOW cool his mom is that she did such an awesome feat in one afternoon.

This, in addition to walking to and from school twice in the freakin ice. ICE. With a 2 year old. Who either wants to walk reallllly slowly, saying "Oh, dat's not so bad, Mommy! Dat's not so sipppery!" Or, saying "You gots to carries me, Mommy! I tired! I sipppery!"

I am not seeing that silver lining over the van being dead today. Not so much.

So, can this sewing and painting count as my good deed that won't get recognized by most?

I think it can.

I'm new to your blog but I agree...you should win some sort of prize! That's a whole lot-o bells and no one wants to walk anywhere with a toddler NOT in a stroller:)

Good on ya. Here's hoping the van comes in under budget!

Wow! You rock. I'll be praying about the van...not a good time of year to have to shell out a bunch of money!

I think it's really nice what you did - and sounds so cute! I love hearing your two year old say "sipppery" - too cute. Take care. Kellan

Oh! Hope your van is fixed quick and cheap!
That is a huge amount of jingle bells, good for you! and you are one nice mama to let the 2 year old walk, I strap mine into the stroller at every opportunity:)

Yay! "Only" $138 including the tow!! Whew...

Oh, and it's soooo icy and snowy out that a stroller just won't work, Kristen. Trust me, she'd be strapped in if I could!

You are a SAINT! Because if treaties are going in those stockings you know the candies will come out and all your hard work will be tossed aside...

But I'm sure Santa knows how good you've been....I'll put in a good word for you!

Happy to hear the van isn't going to be too expensive.

I'd recognize you anywhere with that pink cape and the "Super Mom" across your chest;)

Wow. You're my crafting hero. I hope your son appreciates his mom (and while he may not now, he will someday).
