Well, Look Who Finally Decided to Drop By

Maybe by the time Little Miss goes to college I will finish this felt nativity that I started in, oh, 2009.  Apparently working on this project is an annual endeavor.  I had high hopes of finishing it c.o.m.p.l.e.t.e.l.y. this year, but it's not looking too good.  Too many projects, not enough time I'm afraid.

I would like to say that I will finish this whole thing up after the holiday . . . but that's not bloody likely either.  I doubt I'll be in the mood for Christmas projects anymore.  :/

Ah well.  This year, we have the only wise man wise enough to figure out where the felt baby Jesus was staying:

Felt Wise Man

Maybe a couple other gift-bearing friends will show up next year.

Here's the set so far:
Felt Nativity Take 5

They get played with heavily, but they're holding up ok so far.  We've actually got 4 kid-friendly nativities sitting out on our bay window ledge that get played with regularly.  I love having them available even if it means that I have to pick up stray shepherds and Josephs off the floor every day.  In all honesty, it's funny to walk by there sometimes and see how the kids have set them up with all the marys chatting in a corner while the wise men hold a who-brought-the-bigger-gift council.

For those even later to this party than the latest addition, the pattern is by Bugga Bugs on Etsy.

Anyone else still entrenched in Christmas decor making?  I'm starting to lose steam, but I WILL finish the kids' new stockings before D-Day if it kills me!

You always make me laugh... :) I'm glad I'm not the only Mama trying (and not necessarily succeeding on all fronts) to get every little thing done. I've given up a couple of lofty ambitions for this year and will again be in the same boat next year.

I guess we'll just do what we can and be happy with that! After all, we're the ones who set the expectations, right? ;) Happy Christmas to you - the Nativity scene is adorable!

Oh, you're FAR from alone! I'm sure many more out there suffer in silence. ;)

I told Mr. Skooks last night (after I finished making all new stockings!) that I wanted to make the kids each something special from me for Christmas and he looked at me like I had 3 heads. You're absolutely right . . . the expectations are set by me and they are ridiculous!
