The Twelve Days of Christmas.

I haven't been posting regularly and I'm sorry. I've been dealing with the horrors of preschool. My son has gotten every cold that exists from his school and then shared it with his little sister. My kids have been sick on and off since the middle of September. It starting to get a little old.

Anyway I've decided to keep the Overalls of Shame under wraps until their completion. Unfortuneately since my knitting time is minimal and they're my only major project that means no photos for awhile. But I have come up with a compromise: I'll post the rest of the fireman calendar cookie recipies and photos until the overalls are done, starting tomorrow.

One more thing. I was inspired by Keohinani's Twelve Days of Christmas and have decided to do my own version.

My Twelve Days of Christmas:

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me:
A seagull in a palm tree.

On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me:
Two cookie plates and a segull in a palm tree.

On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me:
Three gift cards, two cookie plates, and a segull in a palm tree.

On the fourth day of Christmas my true love gave to me:
Four screaming kids, three gift cards, two cookie plates, and a segull in a palm tree.

On the fifth day of Christmas my true love gave to me:
FIVE TAMALES! Four screaming kids, three gift cards, two cookie plates, and a segull in a palm tree.

On the sixth day of Christmas my true love gave to me:
Six Christmas parties, FIVE TAMALES! Four screaming kids, three gift cards, two cookie plates, and a segull in a palm tree.


On the seventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me:
Seven mall disasters, six Christmas parties, FIVE TAMALES! Four screaming kids, three gift cards, two cookie plates, and a segull in a palm tree.


On the eighth day of Christmas my true love gave to me:
Eight border crossings, seven mall disasters, six Christmas parties, FIVE TAMALES! Four screaming kids, three gift cards, two cookie plates, and a segull in a palm tree.

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me:

Awww, no overally goodness!

Where did he nab the 2 extra kids from?

Will you be needing bail money for him? Cuz we can take up a collection.


I understand about the Overalls. I am working on a Horrifying Project of my own.
One day soon we shall both be on You Knit What? and won't we be so proud.....~grin~

Well, some gingerbread men *are* real assholes. Just the other day one of those fuckers cut me off in traffic. Rat bastard. I hope he gets eaten and not in the good porn way either.

How cruel to keep the Overalls under wraps - still the horror will be more intense once they're finished.
