Silver slippers......

I sat down yesterday to wrap all the handmade gifties I'd bought.......with a little help from mstr.Finn.
I can't say he entirely understood why we were hiding all the pretties in layers of paper, but fascinating it was...
If you've ever wrapped or tried to do anything slightly organizational with a nearly two year old, you'd know already that what should take half an hour ends up taking two hours.

I had all my little piles of whats for who, but little hands would steal from one pile as I dealt with another. Hence the time away from the table searching for pretties that mstr. Finn had absconded with.


Before long he had tuckered himself out and decided that the rainbow spread of tissue paper looked like the perfect place to rest his weary head. So with bubba deep asleep at my foot I turned up the speed dial to finish up....except that one piece was missing!

I was sure as sure could be that I had bought miss lillie some little silver ballet slips to go with her spotty dress, but they were no where to be seen...

I checked all Finny's favorite hiding spots, in the drawers, on his little couch, in the toy bucket.....no slippers any where. So I resigned myself to putting that pressie aside till the missing shoes popped up.

Lo and behold, later that day, when I was down at Mstr.Finns eye level I saw some pretty little slippers dangling from the X-mas tree.....so cute....


I guess to a little tacker, they do look like any other shiny decoration on the tree.

All the best for the big day, my bloggy friends.
I hope you enjoy time with your little families, your furry friends, your extended family or just peace and quiet on your own.

However you spend your Christmas day, make it a good one and I look forward to catching up with you all before the new year.

  2. Finn's so cute I could eat him up! Jack's been doing the opposite, pulling every ornament off the tree and bringing them to me one by one. He already knows I like shiny things.
