Your Christmas Present!

I know, I know, I am WAY behind with my posts. I have all of November that I want to update for you and hopefully will soon, but as my Christmas present to my faithful followers (who are probably a bit annoyed with me by now) here is our Christmas update!!

We have had a wonderful Christmas so far. We still have two more celebrations to go! Anyway, so here are a few of my favorite pictures so far...

Let's start with my favorite picture...when I was in the 4th grade, my Grandma Marty gave me Kirsten, the American Girl doll. It became our thing and I have just about every item in Kirsten's collection. When my mom found out I was have a girl, she knew that this is something she wanted to do for my girls. Well, last night Adele and Elise got their dolls (Kit and Rebecca). The only thing that could have made it sweeter would have been for my Gram to still have been here with us to see this.

Here are the best pics of the kids. And yes, Lucy always makes that face when I take a picture, so its as good as I could get.

And yes, I do use fruit snack (and granola bar) boxes in my wrapping...just call me green!

And then there are the less interesting pictures of the decor...humor me.

Never really thought I would put something on the ledge above our hood, but I have LOVED having our Rwandan nativity up there this year.

Last few pictures are some home/school-made items from this year. Love having them around!!

Elise's painted snowman

Adele's sock snowman (insanely cute!)

Headbands I made for the girls this year

The door wreath I made. (Totally stole the glad I did!!) Not the greatest close-up, but I tried.
