Merry Christmas

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas!
I hope you have a wonderful time with your family and friends.

We are off to 5 pm Mass for the first time instead of midnight.
But, Joel wants to try to make a midnight Mass over at another church.
Spending the night at home just the 3 of us making cookies, eating, and movies.
Tomorrow going to my sisters for dinner.

Merry Christmas xoxo

The finished snowmen and string of lights

Noah working hard at painting :)

He is very gentle in his strokes

the cause of so much trouble....dried paint and sensory issues :)

we made 4 small 4x5 and 1 5x7

we tried working on them last night but the markers were not working to good.
so make sure it is nice and dry first.
I plan to add some string on the back so they can be hung.

I asked Joel to finish up the string of lights and I guess he didn't hear me and made them into ornaments instead. lol They are still cute with Noah's little finger prints.

a finished 4x5

and a finished string of lights
maybe we will do the lights on canvas next year too?
both projects would be nice to make into Christmas cards.

we have a few more projects but not sure if we will get to them. sigh...

Happy Wednesday xo

He loves to paint until the paint starts to dry on his hands.
So between projects I let him free paint after washing hands.

Hope to finish them up tomorrow after they are dry.

Hope you are having a wonderful holiday season so far.

making merry and bright


had to go out and buy tiny Christmas brush trees since my are all packed away somewhere

I save jars because I think they are cute and will one day come in handy :)

We also bought fake snow and used some of Noah's little animals.
we used double sided tape to keep everything in place but you could use glue.

we had fun making these snow globes and Noah loves them. we have them all over the house.
and they are fun to look at and Noah loves playing with them.

shake, shake, shake lol

I love when he loves a craft/art project!

Happy Tuesday everyone xo

visit with Santa

Hello! It's been a while. Was busy with my family here from back home.
And been busy with editing photos for my new shop over at society6 
and trying to get my Etsy open. No idea how people make running an
Etsy store look so easy. It's hard work...sigh!

Anyway, my Mom and I took Noah to see Santa before she went back home.
He loved it and they talked about sock monkey's. lol We have our sweet skinny little 7ft Alpine tree up.
With just lights and candy canes because we never found our Christmas stuff yet.
We have been Christmas crafting and singing carols and having fun and just enjoying this time of year.

Hope all is well with everyone and you are enjoying this time of year as well.

Happy Monday xo
