|Can you tell I love the "Portrait" lens on my camera? Drews, you make an excellent subject.|
I thought that Andrew would be a little overwhelmed by the large amount of estrogen floating in the air last night, but I was wrong. In fact, he said I should do this once a month. This being--sewing/crafty night. Oh really? I replied. Hum. Then I realized that Andrew enjoyed a relaxing night involving sugar cookies and the lack of his wife pestering him with things that need to be done.

1. Ellie goes to bed ridiculously early. Think ~5:30pm. Yes, we are at that weird sleeping stage. Therefore, babycakes was all snuggly in her crib and Andrew got to cuddle with our spoiled furbabies while watching Top Gear or some other manly show.
2. Us women folk were sequestered in the "dining" room that is closed off by a set of French doors. It is essentially sound-proof.
3. My friends and sewing make me happy. A happy wife = happy household.

|Okay, I did not make this in one night. I actually made two of these as gifts for Christmas.|

More Christmas crafts to be seen after they are given to their recipients. Until then, you must satisfy your curiosity with more Ellie pics.
Sophie, wouldn't your like your bone? I am giving you a peace offering. I even tasted it for you. Wouldn't you like to have this bone? It is very yummy.
This looks like trouble. . .
Now, did we complete any of our sewing projects last night? Yeah right! Between gabbing and troubleshooting. . .
