Cards for you and me

Count down to Christmas "Make a card for each members of you family"
In my continued effort to promote giving not just getting this holiday season, we made cards for each family member.
James really enjoyed it and even made an extra for our babysitter. He love passing them out! Lillian didn't get it a first but caught on when we were passing them out that night. They both put their cards from each other in their rooms. I am so happy at how much they really love each other!

Quite book

I have begun the car trip prepping today and am readying myself with books, toys, color books and a new quite book!
I love all the fun ideas out there on the web for quiet books. I made a super fast one a month ago and the kids like it so I went all out this time.
All I used was an old three ring binder, several colored sheets of felt, hot glue and old fashion imagination!

Dressing and putting baby to bed, Lillian is already in love with this page

Elf mischief

Our elf, Barnard, decorated the kids bathroom mirror last night!
James says he is going to "tell Santa about this elf!"

Count down to Christmas presents, Fun with Snowflakes!!
We made paper snow! I remember doing this as a kid and loving it, and my kiddos did too! Lillian mostly just made a mess by cutting and cutting the scraps into oblivion, but James started to get the hang of it in the end. He managed to make a couple really good ones and had a great time.
I was going to hang them from the ceiling over the tree, but I think I like them better on the tree.

Dickens Christmas

Even though it felt way too warm for Christmas activities, Saturday we enjoyed the second Dickens Christmas in downtown Tuscumbia. The kids loved the horse drawn carriage ride, Lillian especially, she loves horses! They also had fake snow and vendors. We missed some of the earlier events and didn't even bother to visit Santa in the train because the kids are not so into seeing him this year. But it I was fun and I am looking forward to next year! I hope it continues to grow! :)

You're a cute one, Mr Grinch!

My little ruffled Grinch!
I adore this fabric! It is so fun, and even though the Grinch didn't actually say "Bah Humbug" I think he and Scrooge would get along...or not get along...getting along seems like something happy people do, not storybook grumps!
Anyway, check out my little Grump on my Etsy page and get one for your little Grinch!

Merry Grinchmas!!!
