Especially considering the level of his color blindness.
This is snowman gift #19 for the month of December. Pooldad colored it all by himself and I have to say I am very impressed:
While I was "ooohing" and "aaahing" over it I noticed the colored pencil he was holding in his hand. I asked him, "So the pencils, they all have the colors written on them, don't they?" He laughed and said yes. [We kid because we love.:) heehee]
I love it!
In other Christmas news: We went shopping at the mall yesterday. ::gasp:: Never thought I would do that this close to Christmas, but I have to be honest - although it was incredibly crowded when we first arrived - we did find a very close parking spot and didn't have to wait too terribly long in any line. And the sales? WOW! These retailers really want our money. I was surprised by what we found for 50, 60, even 70% off. We had to make two trips to the car to unload [Pooldad has skillz, trust me, but he has a hard time pushing the chair while juggling packages] and we spent less than $250. I love bargains.
Best part of the whole trip? We were waiting in line behind a woman who was checking out. We were chatting and she mentioned that she was so happy that she was finally done shopping. We laughingly agreed when she suddenly handed us two coupons for Macy's. She explained that since she was done she wouldn't be using them and noticed we could. Yipppee! It saved us $40 off our final purchases. I could not believe it. Thank you nice lady who was buying the "Circus Waffle Maker"** in Macy's on Sunday. [**Which I now covet. Seriously, how cool are "Circus Waffles"?]
When we arrived home we had crockpot stew for dinner and afterwards I got to wrapping. Pooldad kept me company for the most part [he went to bed early because he did have to work today] but I wanted to do it myself. Six hours later and I don't think I have ever been happier to fall into bed. I have never, ever had my wrapping done a week before Christmas, but it is so worth it. :)
Now, raise you hand if you have ever done this while wrapping presents: Who has chipped a nail? I not only chipped one nail, but I broke another. How does that happen wrapping presents? giggle - probably just me.
That's all for now. I am going to be resting for most of the week to gear up for the weekend. I hope y'all are having a good one Tadpoles. See ya' on the flipside. :D
