What i have been working on!

Ok, so aside from ALLLLLLL the stuff i am working on for Christmas. We went to the Christmas party at school today and the girls had tons of fun!

Brittany sang with her little choir. She did a great job!

Then they made Christmas cards to send to the troops! Very cool! I always try to let the girls know how important it is to support our troops. And what they do for us. One of James' nephews is there right now, and our neice's husband came back from Iraq not too long ago. Thanx to them and all that serve, and the wives and families that support them!

The girls also got to see santa. And strangely enough they asked him for things that they have never even mentioned wanting in the last year! ROFL! I said what about the other things you wanted????? They said, I don't know, I just want this instead! Go figure! And of course, "Santa" already got them the other stuff they had been asking for.
These are the outfits I have been working on for the girls for the last week or so.

And here was Christian's first picture with Santa :)

What have I been up to this week?

Sewing, sewing sewing...and...uh.... did i mention sewing? ROFL! since i am making everything for Christmas this year I have a lot of sewing to do! But i got a ton of stuff done. I didnt really think i had gotten much done, till i made a list of all the stuff i have done, then i was really impressed with myself!
The Thrifty Under Fifty thing has really gotten me motivated! So far all I have had to buy was a pack of colored pencils, and some yarn for beanies and some filler for stuffed monkeys. Yes i said stuffed monkeys. I was skeptical at first, and as I made the first one, i thought...uh... this is soooooo bad!!!! But the girls actually really liked him! ROFL! And i ended up giving it to Christian, and he seemed to really like it too. Then Angel asked for one in all different sizes! LOL! So we will see how many more mommy ends up having to make before Christmas!
