Merry Christmas

Well, Christmas is here! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! Here are a few pictures from our celebrations. The first is at our house, Colton opening his presents from Santa!

The shirt Colton is sporting I made for him, how cute is that?
Colton opening his stocking and stuffing the Hershey Kisses in his pockets!

This is Colton's new pick-up truck! His great-grandma gave it to him for Christmas. You can see he already has the back filled up with essentials, a lunch box included!

Merry Christmas from all of us!

It's A PaRTy!

So Kimba is having a party over at her blog "A Soft Place to Land". I thought I would join in with a few of my Christmas decorations!
This first one is something new I bought at a signature homestyles party, it's called an art deco tree or something like that, but I think it looks great with my Christmas cards on and since it matches my living room I am pondering leaving it up year round with pictures in it!
The second picture is up close of my tree and one of Colton's favorite ornaments. Favorite because it's a tractor and it was an ornament one of his great-aunt's gave him last year! If that great-aunt is reading this,we really do love it!

This is the major Christmas hub in my house. I bought a new tree last year on sale and to be honest I hate it, it is way to small. So to make up for it I put up two small trees next to it. I don't know if that helps but it makes me feel better. The two small ones are decorated totally in red tractors, Colton almost had a coronary when he saw it the first time! We had some tough times learning to just look not touch, but I think we get it now!

Colton is modeling next to my final picture, my snowman. I got this at a craft fair earlier this year and I think it is the awesomest! It is made from an old gas can, which my husband thinks is such a waste and probably the stupidest thing he has ever seen, but me? I think it is SO clever, and cute for that matter!

So please visit Kimba's open house at the link above and see everyone else's amazing Christmas tidings! If you are visiting from Kimba's I would love to see some comments!

So what did I do this weekend? Well after a delightful cook walk at one of the local churches, my Mom and I went to her house to bake some sugar cookies. Well 10 dozen cookies to be exact! And Colton got to help put the sprinkles on! By the time we were done there were sprinkles EVERYWHERE! But he had fun and so did we!

I think this last picture is him figuring out he can spray the entire room with sprinkles!

It's Official!

Well I finally got around to listing my first item in my Etsy shop, "Grace In The Margins"! (giggle) Of course I have only listed this one item, but perhaps if I get really ambious after my cleaning, cooking, dishes, laundry, wrapping presents and taking care of my son I will get a few more listed that I just have lying around the house waiting!

What did I list you ask? Well this is it. Not a super great photo but an okay one. A bracelet personalized with names or words. I think it turned out super cute, but of course I would because I made it! Price is $25.00 with $5.00 shipping. Check out my shop .

So I am not quite sure why blogger is posting my pictures in reverse order, but at any rate....I took some pictures when Colton and I got home last night and I got supper in the oven. I bought him a very bright orange "vest" that he refers to as his "coat". He loves this thing, no maybe that is not strong enough he LOVES LOVES this thing. In fact he cried when we had to take it off to put our pajamas on and he wanted to wear it this morning when he was getting dressed. Silly me I should have bought them in a few different colors. Any whoo I made him stand in front of the camera to model his new favorite "coat" and told him to say please, because I still think that is the cutest thing ever! After a few of those pictures he wanted to take one with me but he got SOOOO excited and was laughing so hard that you barely can see either of our faces! Sillyness that's Colton!

Until next time KB

Thanksgiving Decor

So...happy to say it seems Thanksgiving at my house went off with out a hitch! Of course as you look at this first picture you might think otherwise, but this is Colton wanting his turn with the camera...something I am not brave enough to try yet!

The rest of these pictures are of my decorated table! I think it turned out lovely! Of course I forgot to take any pictures when there were live people sitting at it.

I used the pears as place markers, which I think worked well. And we now have fruit to eat for a week!

Here it is from another view!
I hope you all enjoyed Thanksgiving where ever you were! Until next time!
