We had a great time, and even ended up having Miss J come join the party. We crafted for SIX hours straight! Whew!

The girls decided to make stockings for each of their family members. Miss L and Miss E made four stockings each, and Miss J cranked out eight!

It was Miss L's first time sewing, and she loved it.

Before we started, Miss E. said, "Can we make these stockings how we want to -- or are you going to tell us how they have to look?" She has obviously not crafted at our house before, because we don't have very many rules during craft time. Just let those creative juices flow!

I made some bread for us to snack on. I sliced up 1/2 the loaf to start off with. I went back an hour later to slice up the rest, and found 1/2 a loaf of bread with the entire center carved out and missing. Just the shell remained. I was so shocked I just started cracking up laughing. I asked the girls who ate the bread. That's right -- 6 year old Miss E. What a silly girl.

We did get all 40 gifts wrapped for Mike's co-workers. In the morning when Mike saw all the wrapping paper and ribbon cut I explained that I had asked the girls to help me wrap the gifts. He then smirked, "Well, I see you have your little sweat shop set up." Thanks Mike!
