Time surely flies.
I made her this wish box- tonight before she blows the candles out on her cake
she will place a wish inside the box!!
I made her the special birthday banner- in blue since she is not a pink kind of girl!
I am making a special cake filled with pudding and afterwards she will open some spectacular gifts!!
Happy Birthday Baby Girl!!

Up on the housetop....

This is my little gingerbread house I made from cardboard.
It was easy and I think I may do one with the kids but use frosting and candy instead of paint and pearls. We tried to make our gingerbread house this year from the kit and it looks pretty bad!! LOL
I remember when I was in 1st grade my class made gingerbread houses from the small milk cartons and we covered them in white frosting and decorated. That would be easy to do with the cardboard house since we don't eat them anyway!!
Tonight is the big night!! Michelle has her big Christmas recital and she is in at least 5 dances!! I am excited and very anxious!!
The kids start their vacation as well... and of course 4 birthdays the week of Christmas!!
I am making a happy birthday banner for Michelle in pretty blue paper- she's not into the pink like I am!
This year for Christmas Eve I am making lasagna. This will be my first attempt at it so I hope it turns out well.
The kids wanted chicken for Christmas Day!! So instead of the tradition holiday meals we'll be serving chicken, mashed potatoes, stuffing, corn, gravy and rolls.
Of course I will also be baking!!
Tommorow the kids will shop for thier ornaments for each other. Each year thy draw a name and do a secret ornament exchange.
I look forward to this time year- only a few days away!!

Pink Christmas

I am dreaming of a white Christmas... well since thats not going to happen in the south, how about a pink Christmas!
This is what I love about my holiday home. The romantic feeling around christmas.
This is sucha crazy time of year so when I am home I like to relax (when possible) in my soft romantic surroundings.
The banner I made says: Buon Natale
which is Merry Christmas in Italien. I am all italien and thought it would be nice to see something different.
The kids haven't even noticed it!!
We have a big family tree in the living room with ornaments that are older then me!
My dear husbands Mom has been giving him and now all of us special ornaments each year- the kids love to see them each christmas time and they all hold special christmas memories. Under the big tree is my village. I will also post these pics later and more christmas pics from our home.
Merry Christmas!!
