Meet Sally our snowman. She is constantly smiling and from her view I can see why. She looks straight into our kitchen window getting a front row seat at all of our family drama. Who is going to sit by Mom at dinner? How come winter doesn't have High-Fashion clothes? Why did she get to eat the last candy? Now if only Dear Sally could talk. She could tell me who really pinched who and if we are as nutty as the family to our left. (Actually, I am glad she can't - I wouldn't want to know.)
Audrey not pictured. Although I do actually have a picture I thought I would be nice and not post. So the snow, although beautiful, takes some getting used to. It is a wonderful treat on the first "snow day" but as the times goes by the novelty of Hot Chocolate may lose it's power.

We had such a nice Thanksgiving ~ Our table was decorated compliments of Audrey.
I finished this fall inspired quilt, just in time to pack it away for the red and greens.
It is so easy to get into the Christmas Season with the cool weather. We actually did decorate all weekend and spent Saturday downtown taking in all the Holiday events. The girls were such troopers and I am so sorry but I forgot the camera :(
I will be sure to post pictures of our Holiday decorations soon. All our love~

With lots of time on our hands what is a girl to do but play beauty salon??

But tonight I am harshly reminded of what is so precious in this life. It is not the tuning of your fine motor skills but rather showing someone kindness. Nor is it sounding out each letter as you read but just the time spent reading together. For sure it is genuine interest in each other's lives, not the correct grasp of your pencil. What is so precious in this life is love; the kind we give, the kind we receive, and the kind we remember forever.

This is Audrey's skirt - not to much flare, which she wasn't happy about, but I think will look really cute with some brown shoes and tights :)
This dress was so easy to make and I knew it would fit perfectly because I purchased her shirt and attached the skirt to make a dress.

- Kris Kringle
- Barley Soup
- Midnight Mass (Great-Grandma's B-day cake)
- Oranments off Grandma & Grandpa's Branch
- Breaking Bread
- Lasagna on Christmas Day and the "kids table"
- J's Side - the Christmas Program
I am probably missing so many. What will my daughter's remember? I hope whatever it is, the memory brings an instant warmth and feeling of love to their hearts, as it does mine.

Canoe ride (super cute ride!)
The great Pumpkin...ride.
Sisters in a cage will do funny things. Mom watching from the ground will go nuts.

Then the girls learned how to toss pizza. Here is Carissa and Megan working on their dough.
Justin and Audrey - notice the fine noodle necklace :)
Hopefully the girls didn't smother Uncle Nick and Aunt Megan too much and they will visit again soon!

Justin surpised me and picked up some
flowers on the way home from work. I love that man! They matched our decorations perfect ~ Now if I could just work on taking "good" pictures then this blog would be worth reading.
So we start another week. I grabbed 2 extra lbs of peaches from our farmers market so I hope to freeze those for the *brrr* winter today. Since it is getting rather chilly here (for me anyways!) I stole an idea from Crafty Daisies blog. Carissa's capris fit her pefectly but if she wears them now her little leggies will get cold. So I plan on attempting a capri makeover this morning. I hope to post the results soon.
Have a great Monday~
