Jesus is the Reason!

We had a great and blessed Christmas this year! We really do try to stress the real meaning of Christmas and really stress how important it is to give rather then receive. However we do tell our little ones about Santa and have fun with that part as well! This year Santa came in a big way!! He even left the girls a note by the empty plate of cookies and milk!! (Good thinking Honey)! Syd was super excited when she walked out and saw this:she just knew she had been a good girl and santa was going to bring her a princess tent, and she was right he sure did. I would say Mia did pretty well for herself as well. I captured her face when she saw it, it was priceless:
(A side not my hubby is wearing shorts in the background it just doesn't look like it) he is going to kill me for this one haha
here is Syd sporting her new scarf

Mia was pretty overwhelmed by it all but she did get into opening some of her gifts!
And in my opinion the best gift of the whole thing was the Cricut I got from my mom thanks mom, I love it!!! (Please excuse me in my PJ's )
Merry Christmas everyone, I hope you have a Happy New Year and a blessed 2010! God is so good to me and I plan on spending the year trying to live a life that is pleasing in his sight!

I have really been sewing a lot lately, but being crazy and busy and tired etc..... I forgot to take pictures of most of my projects but I did snap a few a did for other little ones. I am hoping some mommies email some pics of their little ones so we can do a post of them in some of the outfits! Hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas! I have a lot to share so I will try to catch up on my blogging in the next week or so!

Santa Baby

So this year visiting Santa was a great for some not so great for others. Sydne is 3 this year and it is the first year she got within 20ft. of Santa! Not only did she get close to him she sat on his lap talked to him and LIKED it! I was so excited yes finally success!!!!
HOWEVER.... this was Mia's face when she saw Santa from in the line so I knew it wasn't going to be good and......
as you can see she wasn't having any of it she was shaking before I even sat her down the poor thing. I kinda felt like a bad mommy but I told him to just hold on tight and I would snap a quick picture. I think you can tell by the look on Santa's face he was not a fan of this idea either.
Oh well I guess we will try again next year..............................

So many finished-So many unfinished

So since it has been sooooo cold around here lately we have spent most of our time staying home. Small children and 10 degree weather just doesn't really mix well. My dining room/sewing room has been busy busy busy. Here are a few of my recently completed projects.You would think after all that I could go ah....... finally I am done and then I look over and see
THIS:
that would be my to-do pile! It is screaming at me to because i have had some projects sitting there for some time that really need finishing. The very last pic I posted specifically for my girlfriend Beth who is always asking me how I keep my house so clean.... hahaha I don't think I could even find my dining room table at this point, and yes that is clothes hanging from the chandelier. Good thing for the kids table in the kitchen!

Coming soon will be our trip to Santa, and yes it was very interesting!

It's all in the fabric!

So about a year ago we did some major renovations to our house we knocked down the walls between our dining room and living room and pretty much just made the main living area of our house one big open space with the same flooring and all. I was really excited about it until I sat back and thought to myself wow now I need to decorate this whole space as one! So I have done few projects here and there trying to make it all flow together, now I would have to say decorating even though I love to do it does not come easy to me. So my inspiration for the space was to get a color palette and just run with it changing it up with pattern and texture. My palette is brown,black,muted green and cream. What can I say I LOVE neutrals they make me feel relaxed!

So here are a few things I have done! I just love this set of fabrics together they are all very different but similar in color and tone so I think they work well together!

Sydne's Pre-K turkey day


video

Sydne's Pre-K class did a little skit their last day of school before thanksgiving break and it was so cute. My hubby got a little crazy with the video taking I think he took 6 or something what can I say he is a proud daddy, but I thought this was a cute one. They are saying there poems they learned. Syd is the youngest and the littlest one in the class I think and she does so good we are very proud of her! Here are a few shots of her in her Indian outfit they made in class as well.
I am actually glad he took a lot of video because Mia was less then thrilled about having to sit on my lap in a crowded hot classroom for 30 min. and be quiet. Lets just say I feed her those package of goldfish just as fast as I could!

Thanksgiving Recap

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, I know we did. We had A LOT of people over but I thought it went really great. The food was wonderful, and we played games which is always fun, I ate way to much though!!! All in all very successful 2nd year at our house. I love having it at the house, it is one of the only holidays where we don't have to split it and drag the kids to both sides of the family's houses not that I don't like going over there it is just MUCH easier on me to say the least.
Well have a great day, posts and videos of Syd's turkey day program at school there is something just to cute about little 3 and 4 year old's in feather headbands!!
This is my mom's candle holder and I just love it so it
went right in the middle!

My table it turned out very pretty it was hard to get a good pic with
the window light

My hubby carving his second turkey of the day
he was so proud!!

Thanksgiving at the house and the Wicked witch of the West

So we are carrying on the tradition and having thanksgiving at our house this year! I think this year we are going to have 15 over. I love having everyone over and am very excited. It is actually pretty low stress everyone brings a dish or two I make the pies, cranberry sauce and rolls (and drinks) and my hubby fries up the most delicious turkey. Not much involved really, I always like to go all out and decorate the table all pretty. I just love this time of year!! I have so much to be thankful for: first and foremost my children they are healthy, happy, and beautiful what more can you ask for! I am also thankful for my wonderful husband who puts up with a lot, I will have to say I am not the easiest to live with, I am thankful for my job, my house, my family, my friends, and most of all my God. You are so good and I am blessed beyond measure!!! Hope eveyone has a happy and blessed thanksgiving!!
On a side note we have a Wizard of Oz party coming up and syd wants to be the wicked witch of the west so I will be at the sewing table between festivities this week, also I would love for Mia to be a Munchkin but we will see, I might be aiming a little high getting two costumes made this week!
pics to come!!!!!!!!

Simple moments


Well today was a pretty yucky day outside it rained and was cold for most of the day, so the girls and I stayed in and played! While Sydne was at pre-k Mia and I just had a good ole time playing dress up in some of her new hats and playing on her Elmo chair! Hope everyone had a good day I know I did. I love the simple moments in life where you look at your children and what God has given you and just are overcome with thankfulness.
