The Holidays Have ARRIVED!


I love Richard for many reasons. One of those reasons is that he put the Christmas tree together for us this year. He even decorated it for us too. That is quite a nice thing of him to do especially since he is color blind and the red and gold ornaments that are on the tree all look the same to him.


Here is a picture of the stocking that I made. I made enough for my cute little
family, plus a few extra for any extra children that may come along in the future.


Saydee in her swing. She loves to pull on her pant legs. I know this quite possibly could be a picture only a mother could appreciate....but DANG isn't she cute.


It is no lie, Christmas is my favorite time of the year! I love the cooking and baking and crafting that comes along with it. I am quite proud of my $20 Christmas set up. I got a 6.5 foot pre-lit tree, a tree skirt, wrapping paper, and ornaments all for $20 last year. I went to one of those fancy after Christmas sales. I am sure glad I did, cause cute lil' Saydee used up quite of bit of our money with her grand entrance this year.

I made my own Christmas stockings with my friend Shyanne. I am quite proud of how they turned out because I am a horrible seamstress. In fact, I don't even know that it is appropriate to refer to myself as a seamstress. That might be like calling Satan a Christian.

Mmmm, who is a worse seamstress, me or you??? I know you know what story I am talking about:) I think your stockings look great, and all of your decor looks great as well. Saydee especially looks adorable in the swing. Justin LOVED his swing. We need to get together soon. I feel like I haven't seen you in forever. Oh ya, and I love the picture of Saydee next to a skidster. Too funny!

I love christmas too! It's so much fun. I think everyone can be a seamstress, all you need to do is sew and make stuff. Now, a good seamstress... that takes talent! Your stocking turned out great. And Saydee looks adorable in that picture! I love her chubby cheeks!
