party, decorating and baking...

(for the lack of a better title) hehe!
We celebrated Avery's B-day Sat. with our family. It was really nice having everyone together and we truly missed the ones that were not able to come.

look at those shoes from Meme....LOVE them!

And... It never fails....every time my mother comes to my house she has to redecorate for me ( not that I am complaining) I am loving this lamp that she gave matches my chairs Perfectly!

Lastly, I think it goes with out saying that the week before Christmas is on of the busiest weeks out of the year. However, we did manage to make one out of the three cookies on my list to make. I posted them on my blog or you can find them here: christmas-cookies-for-kids They were SO much fun and super easy for kids.... Dawson and Avery literally made them all by their selves ( with the exception of the dough) .
I hope everyone has a Very Merry Christmas! :)

For her birthday....

I took Avery to see The Nutcracker with the nashvilleballet at TPAC last night. It really was an amazing experience. Avery did so well and now wants to be a ballerina even more!

Here is a layout I did at a crop the other night ...It's Dawson making his gingerbread train in '05 (( and finally scrapping it))
Just a quick one a busy week!
Have a wonderful day!

We will be making these...

Here are some ideas I got for making Christmas cookies with your kids from bhg and wanted to share....

I have this candy cane cookie cutter and I love the idea of doing chocolate instead of sugar cookie

Also wanted to share a stocking I made (( with the help of my sister )) we got the idea from a sewing mag she had. It is very simple...even (( I )) can do it...haha!

*** Christmas around the house ***

Every most...we decorate the day after Thanksgiving. I love our house the Most around Christmas! The smell of the tree, all the cute glittery decor, wrapped presents, the Christmas music...I could go on and on. I just love it!!

Avery loves Christmas too :~)
