We've had another busy few weeks here in the Yurko household as we finish getting ready for Christmas and end another year! The kids are all now officially on Winter Break, so they are enjoying some much needed down time from their studies.
There was a major Win10 update, so while it went rounds on that I thought I'd finish up a little watercolor project. I suck at paints, but I am in love with watercolor markers. I'm going to get my hands on some more colors after Christmas! I spent the last couple of weeks trying to finish up the Christmas shopping. On one run, I found Deadpool stickers........ and a few of them are now on my car :D I gave the "leftovers" to Nick and he said I took all the good ones, so I bought another set, lol. Caroline will end up with THOSE leftovers, lol!
The pooper-scooper for the cat's litter box split in half, so Caroline wrote on the board that we needed a new one so I didn't forget. Nick decided to be a smartass about it LOL When I stopped at PetSmart for that, I bought the dog a jacket. She was not happy about it. She doesn't like wearing clothes at all, much to my disappointment. But I'm making her wear the jacket because it's too dang cold out for her!
She doesn't mind bandanas, though! She hopped up in my lap as we were sitting down to binge the first season of Ash vs the Evil Dead and she looked up at me like "what? you have a blankie!" She's very much a blankie baby, lol. Yesterday, I made pralines. I was going to make them at Thanksgiving, but never got around to it. I made them HUGE because Nick has such a big sweet tooth :P
Every time I put something new under the tree, I take a picture, so I know if anybody's been snooping, LOL! The kids have been trying to guess what they're getting and have been trying to get me to confirm. Nick isn't in-the-know this year on a lot of stuff they're getting. Honestly, I can't wait to see all of their faces. Their Christmas lists sucked (a lot of video games and hardware that I'm just not going to buy them), so I had to get a little creative ;)
I'm not taking off for the rest of the year, but the next few days will definitely be spent with the family. I hope you get to do the same ♥
Looking for something?
