It's the first day of Winter break, I'm so glad that I can get up in the morning and enjoy my coffee without having to run around making lunches, helping a super picky almost 7 year old pick out thee perfect outfit, helping my 9 year old find his shoes, hat, socks, etc, yelling get out of the shower, 20 minutes is WAY TOO LONG!! all while having the little guy all over me. I love having them home (except when they're arguing with each other). They are great helpers, and we all love to bake together, do craft projects and play games, there is really not enough time in the day when they get home from school and have homework to do, chores, and reading, then it seems like it's time for bed.
Football has been over for a little while, The hornets made it to the Superbowl but lost. P#1 wasn't very upset, I think the whole team was OK with it. They had a tough division this year and they beat the team who has been undefeated for 3 years to make it to the Superbowl, He said that was better than the Championship. Now on to Basketball and Karate.
We also went to Disney on Ice~ Lets celebrate for P#2 EARLY birthday present from Grandma. It was alot of fun. The girls got to dress up and dance and sing.They loved it!
Then we had a Birthday Party for P2 last weekend. It was a day-time slumber party, She had SO much fun! I always try and make it super special for her because her actual B-Day is on Christmas Eve, and I feel sometimes she might get a little sad about it, because every one's so worried about Christmas and other things. But It turned out great and a couple of her friends were able to come.
It started snowing after she said it was good luck if it snows on your Birthday! She was excited!!!
I also did a Holiday Bazaar this year, for ACS. I made about 15 aprons and only had 5 when it was over. I was pretty happy that even sold some!!! I was invited to come back again and also do one in February!!
Cute little monster set for my sisters sister-in-law who expecting her first boy.
And a set I made P2 for her birthday using Luvinthemommyhood tutorial. It was super easy, I just adjusted it so it would fit a smaller hand, and added ruffles and a matching scarf!
The minky is so soft and warm!!
I've also been working on my sisters wedding quilt, it's coming along, I just need a few more people to give me their squares and I can finish it!
I finally was able to meet my cousins kids!!! OMG, so well behaved and beautiful. I miss them already.
Spent some time out in nature..
Decorated the tree..
