I love the movie Secret Santa with Jenny Garth.

Good afternoon, MMC!

Mouse woke me up at 4 this morning - her bowl was empty. I am so tired! Haven't been sleeping well the past few nights. A few hours of work on my agenda today and maybe if I am lucky, a nap!

Have a MERRY and safe day!

Sorry, it's a beanbag shaped exactly like a giant Marshmallow Peep! I don't eat them, but the beanbag was too cute to resist.

Consider doing it in a variegated yarn. There are some great variegated color combinations in baby yarn that make beautiful afghans.
