The girls go over the whole tree skirt finding their footprints when they were to little to get a hand print, finding each of their prints and laughing at how much they have grown.
So even though when guest come into our home and they look at our tree they see only the decorations, and lights. When I sit down with a cup of apple cider by the fire at night, my eyes are on the tree skirt underneath the tree thinking about how quickly time is passing and how spending time with each of my daughters really is the best gift I can give myself! Below is a current picture of my girls. See how Big those feet have gotten!
Hope you are taking time during this busy Holiday season to make time for those in your life that really count!

SO I started with an older shirt and a old tshirt I had, I followed the directions on cutting up the "sweater" for both shirts, and sewed! Woo Hoo! and what to my wondering eyes should appear two new scarves to be worn during the year.
If you have not found my mama made it blog- check her out she has tons on other cute sewing projects as well! The lady is a "Refashion" queen!!!

The second crazy thing I have seen lately (my disclaimer: I love William Sonoma). However when I was browsing their latest magazine and saw that they were selling "crushed" peppermint candy as "peppermint snow" and marketing it for $10.50. I had to laugh. Personally I only use crushed peppermint once a year in my holiday baking. I can buy a bag of "peppermint candy" from $1.00-$2.00. It takes about 15 Min's to unwrap a bag of candy, 2 Min's for me to whip out my rolling pin and smash those little candies into pieces. It is a great way to relieve stress!
Now, it may be said that the person who first saw grated cheese in the grocery store probably thought a similar thought as I had about the crushed peppermint.
Well those are my two observation that I have noted this last week. I hope you are enjoying this holiday season! Lovingly preparing for the holidays, taking a deep breath and remember not to get crazy!
