Wow! It has been awhile.. seriously a long time.. sorry about that..
I will post some overdue pics and videos and go from there..
Preparing for Christmas…
We finally got our tree and lights on it…
But we had no decorations, so we needed to get to work..
We had to include a gingerbread house or two..
Anna decided she wanted to taste the icing..
We lost our nativity scene somewhere also..
Let’s take a break and enjoy
Here are some of the other Christmas items we made..
We took the covers of frozen juice containers and turned them into little frames..
Crocheted a spiral thing and attahed a bell to it.
Pasta Garland (colored)
and that is an A on the left hand side.. we used the first letter of our name and glittered it up
Of course we also made lots of cookies of different varieties..but I didn’t get a pic of them.. sigh..
Christmas Eve present..

The Day after Christmas…
We packed Annaleah up and headed over to mom’s place in Rhode Island..
the many poses of Annaleah
of course.. she went through some serious separation anxiety and cried for me nightly for 3 days.. including when she was at Emily’s grandma’s place. Thankfully she cheered up the rest of the week.
After leaving mom and dad’s .. we went to see Angel’s brother and gave his daughter her gift from Anna.
When we got home that night, Ethan came over to spend two nights with us.
