Today Andrew and I actually got the time to relax that we were looking for. I took the time to make another stocking. Andrew used Robbie to clean our floors. We ran some errands, delivered some Christmas goodies, and overall had a very relaxing day.
Here is Andrew in his brilliant outfit. The red stocking is mine (the one that I made today) and the green one is Andrew's (the one that I made on Thanksgiving). If you're wondering what he's doing, he's pointing to the date on the advent calendar.
And here they are hanging on our fireplace. Oh, wait...that's right. We don't have a fireplace so we hung them on our wall. I don't know how Santa is going to get into our house this year, not having a fireplace and all!
And our poor, poor lights that Andrew finally fixed today...The poor things. We had put them up with electrical tape when we first did them and everyday when we came home we would take turns putting them back up. They just didn't want to stick to the window. This week has been so crazy! We didn't ever fix them so this morning when I looked at them they were completely fallen down.
Patrick and Mom came over to pick up some presents they were hiding at our house and Patrick said, "Why don't you just use a glue gun?" Brilliant! It didn't melt the wires and sticks to the glass but comes right off if you stick your fingernail under it and jab a little. No sticky residue and it holds up a lot better.
And since our star flashes (we did a lot of work to figure out where to put those bulbs to make part of the string flash and part of it not), we took a video of it, too!
