Fabric canvas!

On this New Years Eve we have decided to celebrate by staying home, ordering pizza and watching movies all night together.  While the kids are playing with their leap pads (which they love!)  I am squeezing in a craft :) there's always time for crafting!  Last night my beautiful cousin Alicia gave me the greatest idea of putting fabric squares on my wall.  So I grabbed some small canvas' that I have and some scraps of fabric and covered them.  I really like how they came out! perfect for my picture frame wall!

Today I am feeling Crafty!

It does not even feel like New Years Eve to me!  I cannot believe that another year is already over... time seriously flies!  This next year will hold many great things for us and I am so blessed with my beautiful family.  I always try to make resolutions but they never stick so I kinda do not even want to make any.  I just know that I want to be more positive and ambitious.  Next on my list of big events is my Autumns birthday!  I am so excited about the theme and all of the decorations that I am going to make!  Pinterest has become my best friend!  We will be having her party a couple weeks late since my parents will be out of town the whole month of January.  Luckily Autumn does not want her grandparents to miss her bday so she was more than happy to have her party on a later date.  I am so excited to see what this New Year brings to us!

All that work and it's over in one day!

Christmas is finally over, and to be completely honest I am a little relieved!  I know that sounds horrible but I was becoming so stressed out with everything!  I was trying so hard to make everything perfect for everyone and it was so hard but in the end everything turned out great! The kids got a surprise and got to visit with Santa on Christmas Eve and they were so happy!

The kids were happy with all of their gifts and I was soo happy to see their faces light up when they woke up and heard that Santa had stopped by.  I even made them their own apron so that we can all start cooking as a family. They look so cute!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!!

Sooo much to do I cannot believe that Christmas is already next weekend!!  I am starting to feel overwhelmed but I know that when I am finished it will all be worth it!!  Almost all of the shopping is done just a few things left that I need to get and then I can relax and enjoy the holiday!

Yesterday me, my sister and two of our cousins went to sushi for lunch!  It was delicious! I love sushi so much I wish that I could afford to eat it everyday!  I starved myself all morning so that I would get my moneys worth!! After we were done I was so full and so satisfied!  I already want to plan another day to go!

And of of course I cannot forget the beautiful Serenity!  She is such a good baby!

We have purchased our first saw!!  My parents are probably so proud! I cannot wait to use it!!

The Things That Excite Me!

Today we will be going to Lowe's to purchase a saw!! I am so excited for this purchase because this means that I can now make all of the awesome 2X4 projects that I have had my eye on!!  Hopefully this will also help me knock out a few more Christmas gifts as well!!

My!  It seems like we have been nonstop busy with everything!  I need to set more time aside to blog because it really makes me feel good when I post something.  Why? I have no idea.  I just like to write about things that are important to me I guess.  So this weekend we successfully pulled off having a surprise party for my brother's 18th birthday!!  It was so much fun and he had no idea which made it that much better!  We had so much fun!  I just love parties!
Today as soon as Autumn got home from school I got her and Deegan ready to take pictures for our Christmas card.  Every year we try to take them ourselves because they are more special to me rather than getting them done at a portrait studio.  Luckily for me the kids were actually in the mood!  I guess it helped a little with them being wrapped in Christmas lights!  They loved that!  Anyways, after a few shots I got the one I really loved, edited it a bit and ordered the prints!  I can't wait until they come in!  So here is the picture!
I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays!  I know I am loving every second of all of the hustle and bustle!
