And the best news is, even though our numbers were few- we almost completed the costumes. A few people had to cancel, and the weather forecast was predicted to be uncooperative, so I imagined myself sewing all night long for the next month and my spirits started to wane, but the six of us pretty much wrapped everything up! All I have left to do is sew the ties on the tops and finish the waistband and hems on the pants! They did a great job! Thanks to all who helped.
Getting ready! I put Valentine's candy all around for them, but they were all so healthy! I had to ask James to hide the peanut butter M&M's or I would have finished off the bowl.
Fung Laoshi kept our coffee mugs full!
Ironing the shirts turned out to be the most challenging job ever but Kathy had an amazing technique.
She taught the rest of us how to do it.
We put our completed piles on the couch. The piles keep growing!

So to celebrate the New Year I will have a giveaway of two tins of tea. Just leave a comment and tell me which two kinds you think you need. This could be fun.
You can check their website to see the full list. I can't guarantee that the grocery store I buy them at carries all the different kinds, but I will do my best for you!
I will keep the giveaway open until next Tuesday.
Feel free to tell others about it too!

Time: 6:00am - 9:00pm
Location: Corner Coffee 514 N 3rd Street, Minneapolis MN
Spaghetti with meatballs, of course.
We made pretty fast work of the Mozzarella bread. As an avid anti-tomato activist Aidan was literally stunned that the spaghetti sauce was the same as the tomato sauce you used to dip the bread. We may be slowly converting him to enjoy food made with tomato's, which is good because I love to cook with diced tomatoes.
And this is why I usually prefer to shop sans James. I can keep Aidan in line, but those two......... Someday I am sure Aidan will have lots of fun memories of shopping with James - unlike shopping with Mom - who must be very boring in comparison. (But Aidan has noted in the past that unlike James, I am easy.)
So.... that was our Friday night. We finished up at REI and bought Aidan's coat and boots for next year. I know buying ahead is a gamble sometimes, but here's a good mom tip: REI clearances out quite cheaply, and if you find out next year that the items don't fit when you thought they would, if you are an REI member they can look the items up and will give you a full refund. So Aidan is all geared up, and I love knowing that his little feet and body will be toasty warm in good quality boots and jackets.
