Christmas was fun!

Christmas was a blast this year! The weekender bags were a HIT!


So was the Lego bag! In fact - that may have been the biggest hit of the little man's entire haul! Yea!!


As for me - as we opened presents, I was wildly spoiled with clothes, and shoes... check out these beauties...


I feel a new blog header coming on... :)

I also got (myself) this book:


I am so excited to get into it and learn some new techniques and things! Yea!

But, as the present opening wound down, the one thing that I had asked for - a Dress Form - remained absent. I was so bummed. But, I didn't want to whine on Christmas - especially when I had received such beautiful heels, so I didn't say anything and just started plotting when I could buy myself one. Afterward, as we were getting ready to pile in the car to go look at Christmas lights, (we open family gifts on Christmas Eve - to keep them separate from the Santa mayhem) I opened my car door to find:

My Dress Form!!

It was sitting in my seat!!!! hahaha! My hubby laughed and said, "Well, I had to surprise you somehow!"


Isn't she lovely? Her name is Trisha. I can't wait to put her to good use!!! :)

On Christmas morning, after the Santa mayhem, we went to church!


(He's a little monkey, isn't he?) Doesn't the Princess look pretty? I was right, though - we left a huge pile of glitter in the pew at church. I felt bad... but at least she looked good!

It was a wonderful holiday! We took a getaway to Zion National Park on Christmas day for a few nights, and the Weekender Bags were used and were a huge success!! I am so happy I made those!

Hope everyone had a great holiday too!!

Love that hubby hid your dress form in the car, that's so cute! Looks like such a fun christmas! And seriously funny that your daughter left a trail of glitter wherever she went!

Of course everything was a hit!!! I'm so jealous of that dress form! I can't wait to see you put it to good use!

Happy New Year, friend!!!

I laughed when I read this story--my husband has a hard time surprising me, too, and it sounds like yours really came through this year!

The Princess dress is beautiful. Well done!
