Poor Little A has got a fever, so we scrapped the weekend plans and have been stuck at home for the past two days. I am disappointed because we were supposed to do photos with Santa (my father, in a suit) and go out to lunch with the rest of the family. Booo, illness! Leave this house!

I hope little A picks up soon and you don’t miss out on all the fun.

Thanks guys. He’s awake now and watching cartoons, but he’s awfully quiet and subdued.

Yes, thank you. All back to normal and back to school today.
We just had no weekend. :cryblue: We had to cancel swim lessons, and photos with Santa, and lunch with the family.

Back to work for me today. I hope the roads will be quiet though.

I got some beautiful fabric as a Christmas gift, one with a print of vintage planes, and a different one with aircraft blueprints.

This one: https://www.amazon.com/Airplane-Airplan ... 7805&psc=1


and this one:

https://www.amazon.com/Antique-Military ... +airplanes

I am excited. I think I'll make some pajama pants, with an elastic waistband. And maybe a pair of boxer shorts for Mr. KK.

First one is SO good. Couldn't see the second for some reason.

I like your ideas, but no whipping Mr. KK's trousers down to show guests what you have made for him.

No.… :lol: :lol: :lol: Mr. KK also maintains that photos of his shorts - whether he is in them or not - should remain off the internet. :imao: :imao: so you'll have to take my word for it, I'm afraid.
