Christmas times. :)

With finally being caught up on all pre-Christmas orders and Christmas gifts my creative brain has exploded into all the fun projects I have had on my pinterest boards for ages and I am having a great time pouring through them...rocks turned cute things was first on my list...
 followed by "make a glove into a bear".  :)
I've also had time to update one of my favorite items in the shop.  After Christmas you will be able to add either a name meaning or a date of birth to my ever popular name pillows. :)
And this year we had two Christmas cards made up.  Sara Luke, my all time favorite, made this one for us....
...and I bought this one from my friend Heather when she was raising money for a charity cause whose name is escaping me at the moment. :)  Both lovely and both sent out...some to some and some to others. :)
And randomly, Moses asked if he could go see "the pretend Santa" at the mall.  With him we have talked about how Santa was once a real person, who did good for others when he was alive, but how that was a long time ago, how people pretend to be him now, etc, etc.  Which of course, because of the stage that Moses is in, led to a whole conversation about how Santa died and where he is buried, etc.  So Moses prompted his asking to see this "pretend Santa" with "Remember when Santa died...well can we go see the one who pretends to be him and dress up like him?"  This is a HUGE milestone for Moses, who up until now has been deathly afraid of any adult in a costume. :)    
And here's what Porkchop has been up to...the arrival of our new Hokie nutcracker prompted a game of table top toy football...
 And the squinkies exacting revenge on our elf...
...Gulliver's travels style. :)

I hope this finds you a little relaxed...if not a lot...and enjoying some of the little things of this Christmas season. :)
Pin It!
