December 23 – We crafty

So adorable!

 

Today on top of our cookie baking we ventured into the world of arts and crafts and produced great Christmas gifts. Snowmen with Hershey Kiss bodies! So cute – Mama Devine is very creative.  When we were little, we use to make these as gifts for our teachers. Couldn’t help ourselves from bringing out the sequins and hot glue gun! Guess which one is mine. =)

Tomorrow is Christmas Eve, get excited!

December 21 – Sitting by the Christmas Tree

Ornament I made back when I was in the 5th Grade

 

Here’s a glimpse of our Christmas Tree.  So sparkly this year! We are sitting by the tree watching The Santa Claus with Tim Allen right now.  Yay Christmas!

December 4 – Give me some sugar

Cookie Decorating with the VA Cousins!

 

YUM, lots of sugar today! Hot chocolate and sugar cookies and frosting… I need some veggies for dinner! We had a lot of fun creating Santa Claus, Sleeping Beauty, smurfs, and Harry Potter characters. Next year I need to pick up some extra cookie cutters because there are only so many stars and people you can decorate!

November 27 – Tis the season

Christmas Lights 2011... epic as always

We don’t play around with Christmas decorations.  Every year we have a very beautifully decorated house with colorful lights welcoming people inside. While the lights are lovely can we all agree that putting up lights is THE WORST?! Seriously, usually your hands are so cold you can hardly unravel the lights, and after you arrange several light strands on a bush and step back, you realize only half the strands are working! Well, we were in for a treat today because it was 60 degrees! We were out there in sweatshirts and after years of practice got down to business and finished after a couple hours. Not bad at all! 27 days until Christmas!
