Merry Christmas Eve

This morning I told Jackson that today was Christmas Eve. I reminded him that tonight, after he goes to sleep Santa will come. He was so excited. He said, "Mom, can I go to sleep right now?"

Merry Christmas Everyone! May your family feel peace and joy this Christmas.

December 17th?

Seriously? Is tomorrow really the 18th? Where did December go! It's already been such a fun month and I love all the cheery busy-ness of it all.
I think I'll have to play catch-up on blogging once it's January and nothing is going on!
Here's a couple pics of the DC temple at Christmas.

Aren't they stunning? Kirtis took some fantastic pictures. :)
Hope you are all having a happy Christmas season!

A perfect Thanksgiving...

This was our day. Backword. Sorry, I mean BackWARDS. ( I just realized I spelled that wrong. Has anyone else's spelling gone to pot as they've gotten older? ) Anyway, here we go:

Pin the tail on the turkey.
A few lucky ones soaked in football games via naps.
Me stuffing my face. (That is the look on my face after having my picture taken for the one trillionth time while K messed with camera settings.)
Wonderful grandparents.
My sweet sister-in-law.
Chatting it up around food.
My mother-in-law saving the day with her delicious gravy skills.
Lucky me, I shared the day with TWO of my siblings. (Left to right, my sister, my brother and my sister-in-law.)

It was a day full of gratitude and joy.

I was taking pictures of the latest dress I finished, and Jackson couldn't stand not being the subject. Thus a Jackson and snowman photo-shoot. We've been trying to do a craft-a-day, thanks to people like No Time for Flashcards . I seriously have no ideas on my own, but I'm great at copying!
Jackson looooves it, as he spends most the day bored and causing trouble and wishing he was in preschool, it's a great way to keep him focused.
This is our version of NTFFC's snowman snowglobe, plus J's addition of arms and legs, minus the glitter. (I didn't want to go there!)

The Button Jar

My new shop at 1000 Markets, also features a blog. I think this is such a cool way to "get to know" the real people behind all the cool stuff that is out there on 1000 markets. I'm going to try to keep mine updated pretty regularly (well, we'll see right? I am a pretty busy momma!) Just wanted to let you all know about a new post I have there about my button jar. This may be especially interesting to you and you!
This jar turns 20 years old this week!
