Christmas Eve

Good morning! Hope you are snug and warm and at the destination where you are spending the holidays. Southern Michigan is under a weather advisory for freezing rain and sleet this morning and then a bit more intensely overnight tonight. There is also a storm coming across the country from the Southwest. Be safe.

The hubster just left to pick up two of the grandgirls to spend the day with us while their Mom is working at Toys R Us. She will join us along with her brother and his daughter later today for our Christmas celebration.

We have to keep the girls occupied today as the presents under the tree will just keep calling to them all day. I found a cool project for making angels out of empty toilet paper rolls that I will do with the first grader. She loves doing art.

Meanwhile, last evening I was working on a creative lettering lesson and had the urge to draw a face. I haven't been drawing faces lately so didn't know what to expect, but I am quite pleased with her. I really have to learn how to add color, though. I haven't decided if I will try with pencils or acrylics or water colors, but I am determined to take my time and layer and layer to see if I can get something that I like.

It is bound to be a busy, busy day, but loads of fun. I'd better get it in gear as the girls will be hear soon.

Merry, merry Christmas (Hannukah, Kwanzaa, Holidays) to all of you!
