Bring on the HOLIDAYS!

Happy Sunday!! I hope you all had a GREAT Thanksgiving!! We did! I am still FULL! HA HA!! Using up the last of the turkey tonite! Just got back from seeing BOLT! Such a cute movie! We saw it in 3D... not sure how different it would have been seeing it regular, I would like to think ALOT.. since it was more seeing it that way! :)

I am so EXCITED for the holidays! Last nite Amanda and I made ornaments... here is what we started with....

and here is what we ended up with!!

We were so happy with them! Thought they were pretty darn cute! I had seen this idea at a store near us when Steve and I went xmas shoppen! I KNEW I could knock them off! I got iridescent balls (I am all about the sparkle!) the little bead fillers, they had white in the ornaments I saw, but I used clear, and added some glitter (see above about being all about the sparkle!) then added some googly eyes, STICKLES! :) and fun fiber I have had forever! and VIOLA! Instant snowman ornaments!

Amanda wanted to make Steves SPECIAL! So as you can see she colored the top black and made it a hat... to smart and creative is that girl! that is the only one in the bunch! Lucky Dad! :)
Here she is showing off a couple up close! :) Dads and OH lets just say mine! :)

Tomorrow is Dec. 1st! I so cant BELIEVE that! This year has flown by!!! I am excited I made up my Dec. book and get to start taking photos tomorrow!! I will be a day behind sharing here, but I HOPE to do the photo and LO each day.. wish me luck! or drawing or journaling or whatever I decide on that day to do! It will be a SURPRISE!! I love surprises!! :)

I hear my noodles boiling for my soup... off to get it going!!!
