For example, we met some friends this evening for a quick gathering at a local church to see a live manger scene. Here's a peek...
|This is Two-Step...the camel :)|
|Can this get any cuter?|
|Look closely to see her patient inside the O.R.|
|Molly, Susan and Jenny working feverishly to finish their masterpieces! This is serious work!|
|This is Susan's tree that eventually will be on the inside of her gingerbread house...it lights up too!|
|Here's my house just about finished. Did I mention we were working on these from 10:30 am until 7:00 pm? That's dedication :)|
|Complete with personalized sign, skating pond, sledding hill and light up tree!|
|Susan's house, complete with everything, including a darling bird house!|
|Molly's walls going up....|
|Molly's house in all its glory...|
|I would need a little Christmas cheer to bring me back from something like that!|
|I love this house so much! I would give almost anything to take a tour of the inside!|
|My camera was acting up, but this is my favorite house. I've loved it since I was a little girl.|
|This house had the most beautiful dog I have ever seen on the front porch. He just sat there and greeted people as they walked by. He's lucky my kids didn't dog-knap him! He was a cutie!|
|After our walk around Candy Cane Lane I quickly snapped this year's Christmas card pic! Twelve and fifteen...where does time go? Sure do love these kids!|
Amongst all of the new and old traditions, I managed to sneak away from Christmas shopping and cookie baking to start working on some pieces I will be bringing into Faded Elegance next week. I turned on some tunes and painted away. It actually brought me a lot of peace...something I enjoy immensely!
|This dresser is a beauty...believe me!|
|I promise this will look so great when it's finished!|
I hope this season brings you some new traditions, as well as your favorite ones as well. As always, thanks for stopping by! Merry Christmas!
