I have been waiting a year to take these Christmas pictures. I thought is would be so fun to have matching night caps and pajamas. When mom took me to Boise I knew it was the perfect chance to get Christmas fabric cheaper then up here. Unfortunately I broke my ankle the morning we went shopping and my poor mom had to cart me around and hold up bolts of fabric for me. She was very patient. Everything we picked didn't have enough to do every ones, so we did boys and girls. I really wanted to take them in front of a fireplace and so thank you to Myrna for letting us rearrange your furniture and use yours. We had a really fun evening taking these.
Leah loved that Salia got some too. Here are some little things I gave out to friends this year. Candy Tic-Tac-Toe and Christmas Memory Cards to some and homemade bread and jam to others.
Last year I started making my own hot chocolate powder. It was so much cheaper and we all loved it that that is what I gave out. Since then we always have some in our house and it has become the fall back gift.Oh missionaries are coming put some in a jar and tie on a candy cane, Oh we forgot the piano teacher, put some in a jar with cute fabric on top. Seriously awesome. I loved this letter Blake wrote to Santa this year. Especially how he included his dad. Dave said it was working he has not even been out there for 3 weeks.:)
Leah is an elf in her school play this year. She designed the outfit and I tried to sew it. She has striped tights you can't really see in this picture. Really not a great picture, we were in hurry. The bottom is zig-zagged with jingle bells hanging from it.
I guess I forgot to take a picture of the ornaments we made for Myrna's tree this year. Too bad. I loved them. I really wish that the last couple of years when I had made them for her, I would have made a set for me. Less then two weeks now til Christmas. It is going to be a great one.
