What's Going On...

Hello friends, Season's Greetings to you all! I had to take a blog vacation for the past 5 weeks due to some heavy stuff going on. We had Thanksgiving, a wonderful time spent with family over really good food! Anna lost her first tooth over the break and she was so excited! A week later, Mac lost his first front tooth. He looks so much older with that big gap in his mouth!
I have a client every year that orders an obscene amount of handmade holiday cards- 750 to be exact. So, most of my time has been spent cutting and stitching felt hearts and glittering buttons to look like sugar. Seriously, if I don't see glitter until Valentine's Day, I'll be ok with that.

We got the perfect Christmas tree at Lowe's for a super low $30 eventhough we didn't chop it down ourselves, it still looks nice and smells good. I really do miss the tradition of going to the Christmas tree farm in Indiana and searching for the most glorious tree with the least amount of holes.  
Nonetheless, we still had fun and the boys worked together to tie it on top of the van.
Yesterday I forced the kids to sit together in hopes of getting "the" Christmas card photo for 2011. I had to snap fast and before church, so they were still in good clothes and clean. I got one...  tune in next time! ;)


  1. Glad to see you back, Amanda! I know you are glad to have those 750 creations behind you...wowza.

  2. Wow, that is some client! I'm sure your hands ache by the time it's all said and done. Merry Christmas to you and your family. Hope everyone is well. :)

  3. Beautiful family ! Anyway, I just wanted to wish as many people as possible a happy holidays with these Blockbuster and Redbox codes before they expire:
