Sights and sounds of the Season.....

The big guy has come and gone and was very generous to my little ones.

Our "Elf on the Shelf" has completed his mischief mission for the year and hitched a ride back with Santa last night.

Christmas plays were performed.

Teeth were lost. Three in the last two weeks.

Stockings were hooked and hung. I made 26 of these little stockings from Sucrette and gave them out to classmates and students.

Gag gifts were given. I just love my favorite Sis-in-Law!

Presents were distributed, paper flew around, and squeals of delight were heard.

An afternoon horseback stroll was enjoyed (without the sleigh). This is my nephews horse, Cherokee, being led by my brother who celebrated his 35th birthday yesterday. Happy Birthday baby Brother, we love you!

A good time was had by all.

Our Christmas was
Merry and Bright,
and I hope you and your family
have had a wonderful day.
Much Love to each of you.

Christmas Hats

My girls were going to be in the Christmas parade in my hometown last week, so of course I had to make new hats for them to wear. Turns out they were not going to be in the parade (thanks Uncle Phillip for not registering in time :-D) but they got to wear the hats to enjoy the parade anyway. I used the Hat with Bow pattern I posted last year.
I love this picture! For once they are not fighting or pulling each others hair. Sugar and spice, HA! Everyday is like WWE Smackdown around here.
Snaggle tooth! The tooth fairy has made four stops here in the last month. Twice last week. If she has a tooth that is the least bit loose she will not give up on it until it is out. Thank goodness she has no more loose ones, Mama is broke!
I never get tired of looking into these baby blues.

I hope you all are having a good night wherever you are. Time to crack down only 10 more days until Christmas and I have hardly started shopping yet. On a good note, hopefully tomorrow I will have a ripple afghan finished for a six year old cousin. Hope to have a Ta-Da post this weekend.
