Busy making Christmas Gifts

So Sorry it's been so long since I was here again...
December is always a very busy month...running around with the kids, trying to get all the gifts bought and all the handmade done... wrapping, baking and doing our best to spend time with family as much as we can.
I have been getting home late and did not have any time this past weekend... I had committed to do a Farmers Market on our neighborhood to sale our coffee (we bring coffee from Brazil and other countries and my husband roasts it and we sale it here... more as a hobby right now as we both work full time (but with the hopes that it will be a good business for us some day). It was a very busy and not so profitable weekend, but it was a good experience.

In between all the craziness I was able to finish one more Christmas gift... for my husband this time and I think it's safe to show it to you here as I don't think he visits very often.

I made him this Oh so comfy sleepers... I'm actually thinking about making some for me after I finish all my Christmas gifts.
I found them at Erika Knight's book: Simple Crocheting. I just love her book and every single project, and I have to say I'm not disappointed.

The pictures are not so great as I took them all at night, laying in my bed while I was crocheting them... I sure had fun making them and I really hope my husband likes them, I think they will look a lot better on him than they do on me :)

I have been trying to keep up with your blogs but I have to say I missed you all and missed being here. Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you are enjoying your holiday preparations and have a wonderful week.
Ps: just wanted to give credit where credit is due ad let you know that this beautiful tree you see here is at my MIL house...
Just wanted to show you a little bit of Christmas :)
