A little Christmas cheer...

Well its 10:30 and I am done sewing and ready to go to G & G's tomorrow for Christmas Eve (Yay!) As I will not be on the computer for a few days, here are a few things we did to get ready for Christmas:

Decorate gingerbread at the library.

GJ mostly licked the stick.
lSM's preschool play (he was a great shepherd)
And usually gets really shy in front of people, but he said he lines, so I was very proud of him. I got to help out this month in his class and get them ready for the play and play the piano while they sang (the two Christmas songs I know)
First ride on Trax.
Needless to say, the boys were in heaven. We drove downtown and parked a little outside from Temple square so we could ride Trax over to the lights.
It was really cold though! I love I get to see my sister all the time! (though I wish I lived next door)
The fam
He threw a fit most of the time because he had to wear his winter coat (he prefers the camo pullover, and fights me everytime) He is 2.
I debated all day, but I went through my scraps and stash and found material to make a little car cozy that my friend Julie had made as well.
I love the material I used on the inside (like chickens crossing the road, get it?)
And I had finished my niece's last week, but I busted out a crayon roll for GJ tonight as well.
Phew! Now its time to go to bed. Or watch a little Chuck.
Hope you have a lovely Christmas!
I am so greatful for all my blessing this year and I know 2010 is going to be a tough one, but it will all work out!

I love the Crayon Roll, that is a great idea!

Our kids love riding Trax too. For some reason I feel a lot safer on Trax then the MARTA :).

I love the chickens! So cute :)
I see you left off the piping as well! Much faster that way!

The temple lights bring back BYU memories for me. What fun crafts! I'll be putting up a picture of our stockings eventually if you still need stocking ideas.
