More December

I finally got a picture of some snow on the garden fence.  After a few hours, it was gone.

The best Christmas gift we've gotten so far (okay, the only one) was the roast from Aunt Mary, packed with dry ice!  BFJ happened to take the day off Friday and we spent several minutes putting chunks of the dry ice in a glass of water.  We saved the rest in the freezer to show the boys, but by the time they got home from school, it had disappeared!  I guess we should have left it in the packaging. 

I finished a gift for someone from school, and already delivered it, it's the Just Enough Ruffles scarf from Laura Chou.  I have one, and I love it, so I knew it would be a good gift! 

I have several other projects in the works and hope to get them all done before Christmas, except one.  I started a blanket for my boys, a snuggle-on-the-couch-watching-cartoons sort of blanket, but I have had other things going on and missed my goal of December 1, so it has been on the back burner. 

I'll have to show the rest of them to you next week!

Yipee -- snow on the garden fence! Next up -- FEET of snow on the garden fence LOL!

LOVE that scarf. It's SO pretty -- what a wonderful gift.

As for the dry ice -- we do a luncheon at work every year and part of it is to make a punch where they drop the dry ice into the punch and it bubbles like a witch's cauldron -- it's very fun and cool! (They don't really drink the punch in the punch bowl -- I think the chemicalse in the dry ice are really bad for you) Too bad the dry ice didn't last for the boys! Btw, hubby has to buy the dry ice -- he orders it from one of our grocery stores and it's fairly cheap -- for a fun experiment for the boys!
