Fun little projects

 This year I decided to make most of my gifts. This homemade soap was fun to make
 I also made this baby doll carrier for my little niece, Samantha.
 For my girl cousins I made these cosmetic bags with leather scraps from Grandma's old coat.
 ...and these are the kids ornaments this year. I finally organized them in little bags.
 Nathaniel's was commemorating our steam train ride.
 Jocelynne, a horse for her first horse ride on the beach.
 Jaron's first summer playing in the sand at the beach.
 Emily's first year at Kindergarten.
This was fun too. Sewing them all pajama pants for Christmas.

We did keep some traditions....

The first snow fall always seems so magical! These two have a fun bond. I love watching them!

 We did keep some traditions. We made gingerbread houses with friends.

 Nathaniel was so fun to watch at his Christmas program. He loves his teachers and going to HH.
 We also went and got our tree. This farm is just out of town.
 Our kids love playing hide and seek in all the trees. It feels like you are in a winter wonderland walking through all these trees!

A magic carpet ride to top off the evening.
 ...while the rest of us warm up by the fire.
 ...and then we set up our tree. I love watching the kids remember their past years ornaments and hang them up with so much excitement.
