Getting Things Done…

The other day little M did this…

Yes, that, my friends, is a nap! We were planning a late night, and I had her lay down on the couch. I figured that if she went to sleep it would be a nice bonus. Not only did she go to sleep, she slept for an hour and a half!

It was amazing, and I realized how much I miss the napping. Do you know how much I got done?! I cleaned my floors, I finished painting some Christmas gifts, and I painted some other things.
Like this little nativity…

Sadly, I have no before picture of the creche, but the nativity is this glass one…

The stable/creche was just a plain, raw wood one that I got in the dollar section of Target.

Then, while I was painting in the garage, I found this piece of scrap wood, and painted it white!
And, as you can see, my little scrap wood became a snowman…

He’s tall. I like that in a snowman.

And I miss nap time. The end.

    Brilliant transformations. Before and afters are stunning. Love the snowman. Darling.PS. Nap times are fabulous. I totally understand. Last Sunday after mass, Josie put herself to bed and slept for 3 hours! The amount of stuff that got accomplished was amazing.
