Merry Christmas!

I decided to make the little girl I babysit for some felted slipper socks for Christmas. I just used what I had and I think they turned out really cute! They kint up in just a few hours. I think the weaving in of ends took almost as long as they did to knit.

Last sunday morning the kids were dressed up all
nice and I tried to take some cute pictures of them. These were some of the ones I liked. I might use the one on the left to send out some late Christmas cards... but probably not. I figure I'll just send out announcements when baby #3 is born. Which is getting pretty close. Only a little ove a month to go. I can't believe its crept up on me that fast.

For the past month I've known that my sister Allena and her family were comming to visit for Christmas. Yet I had to keep it a secret from my parents... On the 23rd they showed up around dinner time at my parents house. My mom and dad were so surprised. Allena posted about it on her blog. You can go check it out there for more info. She also made the kids some really cute toys... I feel like a naughty aunt, no hand made crafts for her kids, sorry :) Here is Leah and Bella playing with Leah's new princess tea party set.

My little brother had a drum set and Gabe always loves to go down to the basement to play with him. So guess what he got Gabe... yes his very own durm set! He loves it and I love the fact that it is staying at grandma and grandpa's house. Down in the basement with uncle Trevors. Here is a pic of him in action, and the little girls watching and groving to the beat!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! And if I don't post before... Have a Happy New Year!

It seems as though you had a wonderful Christmas, and how nice to be able to spend it with your sister's family. I love the picture of your children together, and they have grown so fast. I wish your family a Happy New Year too.

Happy New Year! I can't believe how your kids are growing! They look adorable all dressed up. And how fun that your sister made it for Christmas. The drum set is too cute. M always wanted one, but the noise factor has prevented me from allowing it. So having Gabe's at your parents is great. ;-) Hope you had a good New Years.
