Winterwood...look what I made! OK,..the rest of you can look to, but I wanted her to see that I followed through and made this cute little needle point project I found on her blog one day. I made four of these this last week end while at the beach with the family. I came home and framed one for myself and am in the process right now of making these into sweet gift bags, like the one in the picture above here. (This picture doesn't really show you how pretty the red bow on top is,... I'm not the best photographer) I just finished up some adorable gift cards to go along with these as well. Inside each bag I have wrapped the ingredients to our favorite Chocolate bunt cake along with a cute tag with the instructions for them to make it....oh and I even have a cute picture of the bunt cake on the card!
Tonight the hubby, daughter, brother John, Mom, Nick, Kim along with myself (Kim took off before I got pictures) went to see the wonderful Glenn Beck production of the "Christmas Sweater."
Glenn Beck did a fabulous job in this production and what a wonderful Christmas message for all! Every year we try and hit at least two new Christmas musicals or productions that come into town. Dad is taking us all to a wonderful Christmas musical after Church next Sunday that I am really looking forward to as well. As much as I love the old favorites like the Nutcracker, we decided to skip it this year and aim towards some new Christmas messages, and boy did we hit a bulls eye with this production this evening. If you haven't seen it then I'd really encourage you to read the book.
Thank-you so much little brother for bringing this wonderful production to our attention, getting us all together and picking up all our tickets for us! Loved it!
It is cold and more snow is predicted to hit us this evening. We are all staying warm by the fire and enjoying each and everyday with the kids home. I am going to a Christmas tea tomorrow and then a Christmas dinner that I look forward to every year as well. I don't know about you but I sure love this time of year! It is indeed busy, but a good busy!
