So proud of my Kaira-girl!

Kaira just finished making Christmas presents for her two sisters.  Two handsewn doll pillows!  She did the stitching herself, with some help on threading the needle.  (I did help with tangled thread a couple times, and at the very end I helped her stitch closed the hole left for the stuffing.)  But she finished her very first attempt at real sewing, and the pillows are adorable! 

 

Today I'll help Kendra with her sister gifts (she's bursting to finish them!), and we'll make something for Daddy.  Then I'll scramble to finish all the laundry.

 

Yesterday was quite productive.  Kristy baked bread!  (WOO HOO KRISTY!), and I made mashed potato casseroles, and baby food for Prince Keegan.  (He shall be dining on yams with a hint of cream, and butter.)  I also finished all the gift wrapping.  (At 4 am, but, hey, I finished!  It doesn't help that I can't just wrap a gift, I try to turn each package into an elegant work of art.  )    

 

I made my menu for the upcoming week too!  Do you want to see what we are eating? Of course you do.  I'm sure everyone in the blogosphere is waiting with bated breath to hear what the PrairieFrogs shall eat in the coming days.
