Stocking Stuffers & Christmas Present

Lillie and my niece, Sklyer love to color, craft, drawn, you name it they love anything that has to do with paper.  So i was trying to come up with a little extra present to go along with what I already got Skyler for, this is what I did......

 I cut out a four inch scallop circle with my cricut
 stamped a scallop circle on them
add a "s" inside the circle
tied them together with some a ribbon and wa-la!!  the cutest little notebook ever!
it also goes along with the necklace that I got her.
shhhh..... I made one for Lillie too, for her stocking.
Lillie lost her first tooth!!

Christmas Lights

Last night we went on the "train", really its called tracks, but the girls like to call it the train to see the lights at Temple Square.  It was Eastons first time on the train and she loved it.
 don't you just love Lillie's face in this picture?  

Here we go.....on the train! you will see in ALL the pictures...most of the children i wont name any names, Tallyn, Lillie & Sklyer thought it would be fun to pull some faces.
my mom took this picture!


 i love this picture below, my brother was trying to get Skyler in the picture and she was done, but check out my brothers face!!

 when I was trying to take the picture above, Tallyn jumped up in front of my camera, and it was perfect because I got him at the perfect moment.
needless to say, we all had fun...funny faces and all.

Christmas junk lollies

I like to call these my Christmas junk lollies.   NOT that they are junky at all!!  When I was looking at them, that is the name that came to me.  You can hang them in your tree or put them on a present or you can just look at them, because they are just so cute....I just love them....just sayin'!!

advent calender

....this beauty has taken me almost three years to make, it might even be more than that, but I'm going with 3. It was a work in progress, you could say.  I would only work on it right before Christmas and then I would start something new and push it back under my table and forget about, and I always figured Lillie was to young to count anyways, but now that she is in school I figured that I would GET IT DONE!
I got the cookie sheet at the dollar store, painted it white added some paper and then the next part is what took me so long, finding and making all the different things for each number.  Not that anything on it is out of this world or just took me foreverrrrrrrrrrrr!

the idea game from Katie Watson, she does such beautiful stuff!

thanks for looking
