A Cover Up

I have hated this phone outlet since we moved in. I mean we haven't had a land line in about 5 years.

I tried removing it when we painted the kitchen during our big makeover, but that wasn't going to work. The only thing I knew to do was to cover it. Because it sticks from the wall, I had to take that into account when searching for a solution.
This is what I came up with.
Just a few embroidery hoops with some leftover fabric in them. Perfect solution. And, it was free. Can't be that.

I just recently uploaded family pictures from Christmas. Sad, I know.

My husband and I kept saying that this was the best Christmas we've had yet!

I made a new Advent Calendar this year. Loved it.

I put a verse and a piece of candy for each child in each cone.

We went on our yearly family trip to Gatlinburg.

It was a blast! Emma took this pic of her big brother while we were there.

Oh my he is growing up way too fast! His little brother isn't too far behind him. He had his Christmas program at preschool.
I don't think he sang a word.

The kids got there traditional Christmas Eve pajamas. I lucked out and found the Elf and Santa ones at Crazy 8 on clearance. Score!

The kids seemed to be really excited about their presents this year.

Hope you had a great Christmas...2 months ago! : )

An American Girl

So, I'm a little late in posting about my girl's birthday, but better late than never, right? Emma loves American Girl dolls and since the closest store is about 5 hours away, we decided to make a little trip out of it. She invited a friend and we stayed in a hotel where they even provided accommodations for the dolls. They giggled, learned to braid hair and ate cookies and milk.

The next day, we spent a few hours at the store and had brunch in the American Girl Bistro.

She spent way too much money, but it was her money and her day, so I let her enjoy it!

It was a great trip, but we were all tired!

So, that's how her 7th birthday went down. Can't believe it has been that long since she was born. Where does the time go?
