I love the boys' expressions on their sweet faces...priceless!
These are the two that would do anything for me and my boys!
Love you, Mom and Dad!!
My sisters Rachel (youngest), Valerie (middle), and me!

After the short program was over the kids got to make gingerbread houses. Here is Carter's masterpiece. He was so proud...and then Daddy left it at the Science Center. oops!
It's hard to tell in this picture, but my sweater had beads, beads and more beads made into snowflakes and bells all over the sweater. The best part was the brand name...wait for it... wait for it.... HO HO HO. Hilarious!
Today I baked and baked and did some more baking. I planned and gorcery shopped for this day for a week, and then my oven acted up all day. UUGGHH!!!! It kept turning it self off at random times. Hoping a day of rest will do it some good, and my feet too :) Carter was an amazing help. I figured out half way into the day that having him help me instead of shooing him away, made it easier. He loves to cook!

little boys dressed in their jammies
the Santa Express our location!
"ALL ABOARD!" The conductor announced
we filled the seats and settled in,
Our destination the North Pole,
You can imagine the grins!
To each boy was given
a beautiful silver bell,
And as quick as he came
Santa bid us farewell.
Singing carols, drinking hot cocoa
Our train adventure we remember,
by the memories we create!

Here is a Christmas wreath that I really liked at the gift shop:
I decided NOT to spend an insane amount of money for that wreath and instead re-created one of my own for 1/3 of the price!
I am pleased with how mine turned out!

I found the clipboards at Walmart for 97 cents, the scrapbook paper was on sale at Hobby Lobby for 25 cents, I already had acrylic paint, brushes and ribbon on hand. I did have to buy the Mod Podge, but it is a huge bottle and can do several other projects with it.
What do you think...Nice gift or a cheap idea???
