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).
