Baby, it's cold outside

We had such a great roommate Christmas celebration on Sunday. We drew names and bought each other gifts, and Santa (Jelissa's mom Camille) spoiled us with tons of stocking stuffers and presents. I love Christmas and these ladies!!

After the gift giving we made yet another holiday dinner feast.

This pseudoChristmas made me so excited to go celebrate with my family in Arizona. Gotta go pack :)

Christmas Partying

 Baked all day, partied all night. Anna and I, all of the roommates too, we had so much fun putting this party together. People came, ate our treats, and all is well.

Christmas crafting

Our house is completely cluttered with saws, paint cans, fabric, newspaper clippings, staple guns, and other assorted tools. And what for? We are decking the halls. 

Janelle made these stockings out of sweaters she bought at DI. She whipped them up in a couple hours. So impressed!

Becca had Teddy and I over last week and made us dinner (Peter made it, really) and we made these Christmas letters, to hang on the door or in this case over a frame. 

Another cute idea from Janelle, made with pages from an old book or magazine.

Our perfect tree! Jelissa wrapped those beautiful presents and wrapped the ribbon around the tree.

I practiced the skills my mom taught me so many years ago and made a bow for the tree topper. Hers are better, of course. 

And lastly, this little piece of work. I'm happy with it and love how it turned out, but I didn't realize one little Christmas tree would require multiple saws, types of glue, clamps, and staple guns. Glad this project is over :)

Let the Christmas cheer begin!

Tiny feet = free shoes

One perk resulting from having small feet, people find cute shoes that are too small for them, and buy them for me. Two pairs in one week! 

Thank you Ted, via Goodwill

and Alaina, via DI

Really happy about both of these.
