I like to use the fairy frost for appliques... Otherwise - I just use whatever scraps I have laying around from my sewing projects.

Just wanted to stop by and wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas. I love seeing the girls in their "Christmas best" or "ugly" sweaters and socks, of course I do agree that they look very cute. Your Christmas celebration with your mom's family sounds like fun. I think the idea of the name tags is cool, so you know how you are related to someone. The quilts are beautiful and such a lovely gift that they will treasures and obviously something that will get lots of use.

Merry Christmas D! Thank you for the "gift" of your wonderful pre-trip reports and trip reports! And thank you for the sewing inspiration, or should I say sewing machine inspiration - not to mention two beautiful bags by D that I just love!

Thank you Liz - I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas too!

LOL Thank you - V did wear her outfit one more time, on Christmas Eve, it was very cute!

Yes, the name tags are very helpful - I don't think we do any family parties with out them anymore.

I agree, the quilts were an amazing gift!

Aww... Thank you Ariana - I hope you had a wonderful Christmas too! I love all of your stockings all lined up - that Donald one is adorable!

************************************************** ********

I am not even sure that I can begin to update the last few days... It was a whirlwind of craziness - that's for sure!

We spent Christmas Eve day with Josh's Dad's family, at his Aunt's house (which was his Grandparent's house)... It was lot's of fun to see so many family members that we haven't seen in years.

All of the teen-age cousins were playing a game of Apples to Apples in the basement...



And then... after Christmas Eve dinner - doing all of the dishes for 30+ people, with out being asked.



We came home here to spend Christmas Eve opening our gifts to and from eachother.

I was shocked to recieve a new doll for Christmas... I guess that V has been hiding it in a cubby in her room since July... She had my cousin Tonya pick it up when we went out there for the MCM sale. The doll she chose for me was #24, a doll I have been wanting since the very first day I opened a catalog. I honestly had no idea - V is the worst secret keeper in the world - so she must have just been bursting for months! LOL As you can see by the reaction on my face (I am also wearing my new Donald sweatshirt from Alli) - even though I knew I was opening a doll box - I did not think there was a doll in there. LOL I was so surprised!



The girls each got one big gift... Allison received a DSLR camera & Victoria received an Ipad... Both girls were extatic!



MM was bombarded by all sorts of new toys, woobies and treats... That adorable stuffed puppy dog was missing an ear with in a matter of minutes... Figures... Not sure why he can't control himself from eating ears?





And the only photo I have right now of the Ipad case I made for Victoria...



Alli loved her camera bag... Unfortunately, I accidentally made her camera strap too long - so I need to go back and resize it. I have no idea what in the world I was thinking?

I also wanted to show you all a few of the first pictures Alli took with her new camera yesterday... By the end of the day - we had our entire Christmas day documented... LOL









And, of course - my gorgeous girls...





I hope that each and every one of you had a wonderful Christmas surrounded by family and friends.

Thank you everyone for the holiday wishes! I hope each of you had an amazing holiday.

************************************************** ****************

Today's update... I worked at Target yesterday - it was total and utter chaos! 100x worse than Black Friday - I loved it!

Today, I plan to fix Alli's camera strap... Take some of our AGs out of their holiday outfits and put them in jammies... And be lazy. That is all.
