Williams visit to Santa

We took William to see Santa, it started out real good, and he seemed to enjoy the jolly old guy.
He loved his beard

Santa was asking William if he had been a "good little boy"

And then it went down hill from there LOL

He was glad to get off Santa's lap and back into Mommy's arms

William Pics

William was attempting to crawl and scoot around on the floor, so I told him if he could make it to the tree I would let him open a package.

Pics of William

Here is a picture of William kicking back in Grandpa's chair. Looks like a big boy, huh?
William in big boy clothes, no onies for him

This adorable outfit was given to him by a very good friend. It's a pair of overalls and shirt , all he needs is the hat. He looks like a little conductor, he was adorable

This is the very good friend. We all went to dinner the other night and she got to spend some time with William.

William checking her out. Celeste had not seen William since he was born, so she was a new face to him. We had dinner at a little restaurant in our area. A little rural town of Dammeron Valley, very country and darling. It's very quiet and a good chance to catch up and talk.

Craft Material Organizer

Don't let craft project leftovers, odd lengths of ribbon and oversize papers get crumpled. Keep them orderly with large clips that are hung on nails in the door of a supply closet or sewing room. Organize papers by size so you can see what you have. Fold an index card around the layers to prevent the clip from making a dent. Suspend scissors and other tools from string

Hot glue button eyes and mouth and a felt nose to the sleeve. Wrap a scarf around the bottom of the vase and fill with your favorite holiday treat

Snowman Jars- Re purpose old jars to make cute snowmen. Fill a clean jelly jar with Epsom salt. Fit a smaller jar (baby food jars work) to the top of the jelly jar, hot gluing in place. Paint the outsides with glitter glue;let dry. Make a hat from one end of a ribbon spool by painting it black. Accessorize the snowman with buttons,wire glasses,a fleece scarf, and bright ribbon

Christmas Place Cards

Peppermint Candy Place Card --- What could be sweeter? Cut a 3 inch oval from colorful card stock. Using a hole punch make a hole at each end, and then neatly write your guests' names on the ovals with black ink. Thread ribbon scraps,each about 6 inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide, through the backs of the place cards. Notch the ribbon ends, and set a card at each place setting
Christmas Tree Place Card-- When you are chopping firewood, set aside branches that are too thin for logs,and too thick for kindling. Use them instead as the base for this festive holiday place card
