Simple Christmas Ideas

Here is the link to the lotion and body butter I make.
They would make great Christmas gifts to give to friends or take to a party for a "hostess" gift.
You'll find the links to everything you need under this post.  :)

Gotcha Day on Thanksgiving

It was two years ago today that our sweet Emma was put in our arms and became part of our family.  We waited and prayed a long time for her. It was the sweetest day of our lives.   What a wonderful day to celebrate & quite fitting that it falls on Thanksgiving this year. 

Here are some pictures of how much our sweet Emma has grown.

November 2011 So Far

It has been pretty busy around here.  James was so thoughtful and took Emma and I out of town for a night this week to do some shopping.  It is rare for us to head out and stay in a hotel for a night.  James works a lot and I just love being home.  Plus, I don't like being around a lot of people or traffic.
This was our sweethearts only nap  during our little trip.  Just like her mama, she is always afraid she is going to miss something exciting.
She managed really well except for getting sick once in the car.  

Emma and James enjoying their "down" time in the hotel.  

Emma loves her morning coffee.  No, it wasn't really coffee.  She prefers juice.  :)

I've decided that worrying about traffic when traveling around here is quite silly as you can see from the picture. 

Lily & Daisy are always so glad when we get home.  They love lots of snuggles.  

I have been working on numerous project.  This is my first sewing project.  It was simple and easy and I only had to rip out the neck a few times before I finally figured it out.  :)

I'm working on painting my little trees with milk paint for my gnome village.

Of course I always have some crocheting going on.  A sweet pillow I made for my niece.  I think she'll love it.
