Today the weather was quite a bit warmer.
Steve and I started the day with Mass and then went Christmas shopping. It is rare for us to get to Mass without children and it was really nice to sit there in the quite before without a toddler whispering in our ears.
We completed most of our Christmas shopping with a hour and were back home by 10.30.
I spent most of the day cooking and sewing. I have started the Christmas cake (that I should have done a month ago) and I helped Amelia sew a pair of 3/4 pants for her to wear Christmas day. I will do her top tomorrow. Brigette's dress only needs the zip and Madeline is making her own dress. Once I have done Amelia's top, I will start the boys Christmas shirts. This is the best thing about holidays. I can get so much more done. When Christmas is over, I am going to sew a heap of summer clothes for Tom and Christopher. Everything they have seems too short or too raggedy.
We have hired Mario Galaxy from the video shop and the boys have been playing it a lot. I have had a couple of goes at it and I really like this game. Maybe we will buy it after Christmas.
I hope you all have/had a good Wednesday.
