This was our weekend to decorate and really start getting into the Christmas "spirit". Aubry had breakfast with Santa at church and she was a HUGE help with getting the tree decorated. And if you'll look back several posts, you'll see these shelves in their previous life as dresser drawers. I had Todd put shelves in them and he hung them up for me. Ta dah!

What's in Your Bag

My neice, Paige, did this on her blog so I thought I'd copy her. She took a picture of what was in her purse. I have:
hand santizer
Rx sunglasses
wallet with so many stupid "shopper" cards
note pads
check book
church phone directory
business cards from recent dr visits
gift cards in an envelope
shopping list of what Logan wants for Christmas
So....What's in your bag?

Aubry's piano recital was this past Sun and she looked so grown up in her new dress. She did a great job playing her pieces too.

I should take a bite of humble pie, but this is one of my most favorite creations. I modified a Vogue top pattern and added lacy fabric for ruffles. I found this crazy colored ric rac that just hit the note I was needing and those red velvet "roses" were just the icing on the cake. I had seen a dress in a boutique in Juneau that was along these lines, but my version is way more "me".
And this is the baby of the family. HA He will only let Aubry do things like this with him.

Little Stinkers

Todd was out taking care of our chickens when along came a momma skunk and her 6 babies!  Notice the tails sticking up in the top photo.
