Diary of a Craftaholic Gift Exchange

Earlier this month I

 participated in a gift exchange 

I was way excited because this sounded like a lot of fun.  As Christmas got closer, I got a little bummed because nothing had arrived.  
On Dec. 23rd, I went and got the mail and to my surprise I found this wonderful gift from the gift exchange.
A holiday "Let it Snow" tile.
I love it!
Thank you to Julie for sending it my way!

 Thanks! It is  very cute and will be a great addition to my Christmas decorations.

I look forward to participating in the next one that Linda has in July!

Visiting Santa Christmas Eve 2009

Every year on the 24th in Green River, Santa comes to the firehouse to visit with the kids.
Neither of my kids had seen him yet so we bundled them up to go.
Zach was really interested in watching Santa until it was his turn to sit on his lap.
Then he doubled over crying.
Santa finally got him sitting up so we could at least get a picture of him.
Kylie was all smiles because she finally got to tell Santa what she wanted for Christmas.
We hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

New Hair Cut

I got a little carried away with the clippers the other night.
Zach needed a haircut so I thought what the heck.  I probably should have used one of the bigger settings on the clippers.  But her sure looks like a little boy now and not a baby.

A Day in the Snow

After getting everyone healthy we decided we needed to go out and play in the snow.
Kylie started building the snowman by herself and she couldn't get to far before the ball was too hard to push.  So Zach and I headed outside to help.

Kylie posing with her creation.
I tried to stand Zach next to her so that we could get a picture and all he could do was cry.

He loves watching Santa get blown up each night we call it waking up santa.
But of course standing by him was out of the question.

He was crying so hard that he knocked them both over.

Cuddling with Dad

Kelly thought he was going to have a relaxing night watching tv on the couch.
Little did he know that he would get a couple of little visitors.
Don't they just look all comfy?

First Big Snow 2009

Here is a picture from our first big snow fall this year.
In this picture there is about 9 and half inches.  We got about 4 more during the night. 
Kelly started moving the snow with the snow blower and then I finished while he went to his meetings at church. 
This is the day that Kylie and Zach were both under the weather, so I left them in the house and tried to help with the snow.
