Crochet Christmas Gift Ideas

I've barely posted lately because this third trimester is wearing me out! It wasn't this bad with Ethan, but I could nap whenever I wanted to then....now I have an 18 month old to take care of :)

Since money is tight this year, I'll be making a lot of Christmas gifts for the boys. So far I plan on making these:
- 3 crochet lightsabers (1 for Craig, he'd kill me if I didn't make him one too haha)
- Gigi Giraf. I've started this one for Zac but it's on hold until I finish up 1 more project
- Desmond the Moose for Ethan, this designer has such awesome patterns
- Some textured/colorful stuffed crochet blocks for Zac
- Some felt/crochet play food for both

That's just what I have on my list now, I'm hoping that's do-able lol. I have a bunch more I'd like to make...but I'm trying to be realistic since I'll have a newborn soon :D

I also plan on getting us some nice stockings since ours are from Dollar Tree, but Craig wants me to crochet some. I'd love to, but I don't have time to do everything I want to already haha. Target usually has pretty cute stockings though, I cant wait until all their Christmas stuff is out!

Meal plan for the week:

Garlic Chicken, corn on the cobb and rice pilaf

Quesadilla Casserole
This probably will have leftovers, so it will screw up my weeks plan lol

Slow Cooker A-1 and Dijon Steak
Mashed potatoes
corn on the cobb

Broccoli and Cheese
Garlic Toast

Slow Cooker Pesto Spinach Lasagna

Zippy Orange BBQ Chicken Pockets, I haven't decided what to serve these with yet though!
