Christmas certainly came up quick this year!

After a long week, our Christmas cards are ready to go! Pretty owl design from Night Owl Paper Goods.

Christmas Tree 2011

We tried a new place this year, Hoffman’s Greenhouse by Hilliard. I like the tree we got. Here it is!

Halloween Costumes!

Monday, October 31st, 2011

Sophie’s was pretty easy this year, we just put a cute hat on her. So she was a pretty woodland ensemble of owls and hedgehogs.

Desi wanted to be Thomas this year. So I made his costume out of a diaper box, (Size 4 Target, Club Size), paper plates and brads (so Thomas has moving wheels), ribbon, felt, blue spraypaint, cardboard, glue, red paint, and gold paper for the number ones. He loved it. It turned out really nice. I liked that total out-of-pocket cost was $4.99 for the brads since I already had everything else!

Running to candy! :)

Walker wanted to go as Dia de los Muertos this year, so we put together some fun outfits for Highball Halloween last night. Despite the freezing temperatures, we had a great time!

Halloween Treat Bag

Finished up a treat bag for Sophie tonight! It is a pink felt bag with a little owl and candy corn. She loves bags anyway, so she’ll love this! I love the lining!

Christmas Ornaments

Pottery Barn Kids have some Christmas items available now and we got Sophie’s ornament for this year. It’s the fairy. So cute!

However, I was disappointed to discover that Hanna Andersson has discontinued the Dala Horse ornaments and instead replaced it with this bird design. Really disappointing. Not sure what to do for Desi now!

Christmas Tree & Christmas Time

Monday, December 27th, 2010

We had a wonderful Christmas this year. Santa brought Desi and Sophie just want they wanted! Our tree was beautiful and filled our living room from floor to ceiling. 9 ft! We went to see The Nutcracker this year and it was beautiful and fun too.

Merry Christmas!
