Yes, cold is the name of the game. It is -13 and I know some of you are used to dealing with that kind of temperature but we aren't so I am staying inside today. I think that I am going to work on my new Christmas stockings today. My kids thought we needed something new for last year and I really wanted to wait till next year to make them but I figured that I will be too busy get them done when it gets close to Christmas so....this is the first one. I have all of them cut out and pinned. The Santa stocking will go to my dh and each of the rest of us also decided what will go one our stockings. I am thinking that next year I will decorate with more primitive items so this is just the beginning. Hope to see you soon.
