The Smell is in the AiR...........

Have you been smelling the Holiday smells????  I love it when there are cookies baking and the candles are burning filling my home with wonderful scents!!!  There is so much going on-- and Giving is one of them at our house~!  More on that later--

 but have you been over to Teresa Collin's blog  to see all she is giving away???  These prizes are amazing-- and so generous -- so Please don't miss your chance-- Click on the Teresa Collins 25 button on the side of my blog and it will take you over to see all the festivities.  She is also sharing so many cute tags and ideas. 

Now-- on to the projects over here.  I am so happy Jensen is getting old enough to cook and bake -- and I can watch!!!!  Those of you who know me-- you know I can bake, but I am not known for my cooking skills---(heehee).  So- since she needed to participate in her class' cookie exchange, she got to make SMORES yesterday--- and YUMMMMMM!! 

Have a blessed day!

The SNOWMAN project

I had found the cutest Hat pattern in a magazine a while back and wanted to make one for Jensen, so yesterday, I got busy making a few.  This is such an easy pattern-- but the most adorable snowman hat you ever did see!!  I love sewing and did alot more of it when I was younger-- but nowadays, I feel like I don't have the same amount of time for it. I enjoyed making them so much-- it might spur me back into sewing more again!! 
The DEAL is -- today was Jensen's Class Christmas party and they went Ice Skating. Perfect time to wear the darling hat and since we are having fantastic warm weather here  (almost 60 today) I knew it was crucial she had to wear it to the skating party or put it in the closet.  Here she is skating = and look how cute!!

I Heart Faces / PETS

This is a contest I could not help but submit a photo for, since our 3 dogs are so PHOTOGENIC!!!  I thought this picture of PIPER  (in jail) was just perfect!   She is usually not standing still enough to get a picture of her-- so what a great MOMENT to capture.   YOU gotta visit to see the rest of the entries-- If you are like me, a DOG lover-- it will be alot of cute faces for you to enjoy!
Have a blessed MONDAY!

I am so excited about all my Elf, Jensen is getting done for our Holiday giving.  WE are having alot of fun-- and she even told me she "LIKES" to wrap gifts.  I actually like it, too, and our tree is getting very full underneath.  I hope you are having a fun-filled Holiday weekend!!
