Merry Christmas (a little late)

I've finally come to the end of my Christmas round up.  Posts will be about something other than Christmas next time around.  

We had a wonderful Christmas.  I hope you and your family did too.  

I made the Believe print.  Back before we moved I wanted to decorate M & G's room.  Hubs urged me not to since we were hoping to move soon.  I still wanted to personalize their space so I bought fabric that I was going to paint a tractor onto.  I never did.  

I came across the fabric in a bucket and thought I could use it to spruce up the fireplace.  I grabbed some wood from the basement and asked Hubs to make me a frame.  Once he nailed it together for me I wrapped the fabric.  I cut out Believe in freezer paper and then ironed it on and painted it.  I think it came out awesome... and then I lifted my plate of paint and sponge brush, and the brush rolled off... onto the print.  BUMMER!  It left just a little dot.  I knew I should leave it.  I even said out loud that I shouldn't try to rub it off.  Did I listen to myself.  Of course not.  So, if you look closely enough you can see the little red smudge.  

Santa left some bits of cookies.  G was thrilled!  He grabbed them and shoved them in his mouth with a huge smile knowing that there was no way I could stop him.  


The boys cracked us up.  When they walked out they saw I had the camera and walked to the presents. On their own they sat down and started to say cheese.

I just wish they would look at the camera every once in a while.  They say cheese, don't smile, and look around every where but the camera.

We were going to start without L but he woke up just in time.  I was so happy that he woke up before it was time for him to eat.  He wasn't hungry he was just happy to be with all of us.  We asked M & G to hold his hands, but L just wanted to rip into his first 1st Christmas present.  M (on the right) was trying so hard to hold his hand.

We decided not to purchase any gifts for L.  I never did get a chance to make him the little fabric book that I made his cousin.  I did go through M & G's 'baby' toys that are still packed up from moving.  I pulled out two toys from the boys and asked M & G if they would like to give L these for a Christmas present.  They were happy to.  (The whale is from when M & G were little).
