Our Home At Christmas

I hope everyone is enjoying their day and "Happy the Mayan's Were Wrong Day," haha!

I thought I'd share what our home looks like for Christmas..I am a LITTLE obsessed with the "sweets" theme and love all the fake cookie,candy,cake decor. 

This is my kitchen tree, Over the years I have added to it and I'm totally in love with it this year! I actually made all the ornaments for this tree myself, except for the candy garland, a couple store bought ornies and the little fruit tarts. 

What is made by me is: ribbon candy, sugar cookies, spritz cookie, some of the little candies, lolli pops, hot chocolate, cupcakes and mini cakes. Crazy, I know, but it makes me happy :0) I actually made some ornaments to sell also but never got the chance to put them up on etsy, so I'm hoping to make some more and sell next year!

Here are some pictures of our dining room, where the sweet theme continues.
I actually made all the fake sugar cookies for this wreath this year and had a blast!

I collect ceramic cakes and pies, so they are perfect to display with my Christmas obsession, hehe.

This is a faux gingerbread house I made a few years ago, and I'm looking forward to making some more soon.

Our living room

We are crazy and buy a huge tree to then place on top of a dining table!
It was this way last year too, but it keeps little hands away from ornaments, and fills up the corner nicely also!

My favorite spot on the tree:

and lastly, here's a picture of the 2 miracles in my life, I thank the Lord for them everyday and can't believe they are truly here. For years we imagined and dreamed about them and now here they are to celebrate Christmas with us! :0)
Sophia 27 mos. 
Joshua 9 mos.

From our family to yours, have a very Merry Christmas!!

Halloween 2012

   I hope everyone had  a wonderful Halloween!
Here's our Halloween Family Portrait.

We had a little party and then  Sophie went Trick or treating for the first time!

She totally loved it and all the loot she got..she's still saying trick or treat and bringing me her bucket for a little candy at a time.

This is what her face wound up looking like after receiving many makeup kisses..

Here a few more photos of my crazy family and our Halloween..
Sophie and Aunt Delilah

 My Crazy Mom, hahaha

Checking out photos, this is one of Sophie's favorite things to do..look at herself! haha :D

Happy November and I'm so excited for the holiday season! Woohoo!!
