Each year I make a homemade gift for my nieces and nephew. It started with my first born niece, when she turned 2 I made her a scrapbook of all her family in it for Christmas. Then it just kept going. Last year I made all the kids knitted sweaters. Now the thing about my tradition is though that I am usually finishing up the gifts on Christmas Eve after church! This year I decided to sew them something since I didn't really knit much this past year. I made them each a teddy bear. It takes me about an hour and a half per bear, I've made a few now. So I got up nice and early, got out the fabric and made a little assembly line of 3 bears. Well not really, I made one kitty, one puppy, and one bunny, all same bodies, just different ear styles. I am happy to say that I started and finished the stuffies all in one day and they were wrapped and placed under the tree. Jacob and I just hung out at home all day and he got to play all day and I got the gifts done. We should have more days like this. So thanks God for not putting any interruptions in our way to have this kind of day!
