Our elves, Buddy & Ruby, arrived on December 1st and I will be so glad when they go back to the North Pole tomorrow night! I'm so tired of moving them around, I can't imagine doing all the cute stuff that other people do with their elves...ours are doing good to be moved every night (and there's been a couple of times when they didn't).
|After we were finished, his cookies went in the trash. I didn't want to take a chance on Brady passing his sweet little germs to anyone else. ;)|
I love the Pioneer Woman! I've made several of her recipes and they usually always turn out delicious. Well, I got a wild idea to make a Flat Apple Pie from my Pioneer Woman cookbook for our big family get-together at our house. Let's just say, I'm no Pioneer Woman. My Flat Apple Pie didn't turn out so well and landed in the trash can. Epic fail. :( Oh well, at least I can say I tried it, and maybe, just maybe I'll try it again some day soon.
|This is what it's suppose to look like....|
|And this is how mine turned out. :(|
|We got these cute ornaments from our friends Adam & Carey.|
|This was Brady's ornament he made at school. (Pictured is the Christmas tree in his classroom). I love his homemade ornaments and he was very proud his picture ornament. I had to end up hanging it high on our tree because he wouldn't leave it alone.|
|My friend Dorothy sent this to us in the mail and it's just perfect. Such a sweet surprise.|
|Brady got to paint his very own ornament this year.|
|This is what we got! I think he did a pretty good job and I will treasure this ornament forever. We're going to have to get several more trees to accommodate all these ornaments the kids are going to make over the next several years. :)|
|And it's no secret that I'm obsessed with my kids hand/foot prints. Here's our reindeer ornament made from their thumb prints. I'm so in love!!!|
|I love this wild crazy family of mine!|
|Love my grandma!|
|Gracie with Nana|
|Tessa & Rayleigh|
Well, that's about it for this year's traditions. It's a start and I plan on adding more fun stuff when the kids are old enough to enjoy it. I'm so thankful for all the blessings in my life and look forward to the next couple of days with my family.
Merry Christmas Y'all!!!
