I've also been busy over here working on a few other projects. Over the next month, I hope to share with you some of the items I am making for Christmas. We are going for more of a homemade Christmas this year. Over the years, I have noticed that the things the kids keep the longest, are the items that are homemade. Toys come and go, and our basement is overflowing with them. By the time May rolls around half of them are buried in the toy box and forgotten. I am hoping that by making some of our presents, I can cut down on wasteful spending, and give my children a gift that means something to them.
Speaking of Christmas, we had family pictures taken for our Christmas cards over Thanksgiving. It was a quick 15 minute photo shoot in 30 degree weather. One of my good friends from high school was sweet enough to take them for us. I'm having a hard time deciding which one to use. All of them have some little quirk about them...
|Husband is smirking.|
|Boy 3 looks super grouchy. That's because he was.|
|Baby isn't looking at the camera.|
I suppose I should get those Christmas cards ordered sometime soon. After all, the tree is already up and our Elf of the Shelf has come to make mischief for the next few weeks. He's already made a mess of our ornament box and eaten all of our frosting.
