Merry Christmas!

I hope you have a great holiday! Here are a few pics of Christmas @ our house!

I have an obsession with vintage sheet music right now! I love it in the Christmas tree!

The sign got a re-do for Christmas! Not sure why it looks crooked in this picture... must be the angle it was taken from. I assure you it is straight:)

My mom and sister came over to help make Santas cookies yesterday!! With  a lot of FUN, a large mess, and a thousand sprinkles; we did manage to get some finished:)

Easy DIY subway art: This is an old brass from the D.I. that I spray painted black and put some damask fabric inside. I then cut out some quick vinyl.

My mom bought this Dr. Seuss tree @ trees for Charity this year. It benefited Diabetes, which holds a soft spot in our hearts. My sister has been type 1 diabetic since she was six. She is now almost 18! The kids love Dr. Seuss so she gave it to us! I added a lollipop and a few crazy trees. I can't turn on the lights because they are overwhelming, lol. Next year we will go back to a real tree in here for the kids and I will incoroporate the stuff I usually put on the tree along with the Dr. Seuss so it pleases both the kids and I!!

Wishing everyone a safe and Merry Christmas!

It is beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!!!!!

  I am soooo excited that it FINALLY snowed today!! I was beginning to worry that there would be no snow for Christmas! There is nothing like some white to start the day off in a good mood:).
We learned right before Thanksgiving that we are expecting our 3rd (and may I add last) child!! We are super excited but I have been super sick! I caught a break from it today and we accomplished a lot, with still a ton to do! I don't think it is possible to catch up from 3 weeks of snuggling up on the couch being sick in 1 day! Sorry I have not been up to posting anything lately. The last thing on my mind has been crafting! I am hoping to wake up in the morning and have another good day so I can get caught up and take some pictures of Christmas time at our house!
  The kids and I were so excited to build a snowman today! Stryder has been fully dressed in his snow suit every time it has snowed for 5 minutes. By the time he has a chance to get dressed, it is gone! He has been singing the Frosty the Snowman song (even knows it better than I do) for a month! The snow was so wet and perfect that we built the snowman in less than 10 minutes I may add! Stryder made the top two balls himself! It was pretty cute to watch him try to roll them!
 We went to my mom and dads for dinner tonight and it was so yummy! Then we all went to Tangled! It is the best kid movie I have seen in a long time! Is anyone else in-love with the horse?

"Fairy Dreamland" Trees for Charity Display

I was so excited to get the chance to help my friend Necia put this tree together this year. It was donated by MBT and benefited the shelter. It went for $4,000!
