Merry Christmas

We were so blessed that Santa Claus was able to visit with us on Christmas Eve.  The entire family was  thankful that he took an hour out of his busy schedule to stop by our family celebration.  We spent the evening with at my parents with my siblings and all of my nieces and nephews.  That is what makes our Christmas special.
My children, Tim & Megan, Mitch & Gabriel, and Mollie are the reason that I enjoy my Christmas'.  I am proud of the people that my children have become and I adore my grandson, Gabe, more than words can say.  I am grateful that they are such loving, caring and giving people.

As Catholics, we are still celebrating Christmas until the Feast of the Epiphany on January 6.  Hopefully, you all had a most holy celebration and that the peace and joy of the season remain in your hearts throughout the year!

I stained and covered these letters with paper.  Then I embellished them with rhinestones, ribbon, bells, tinsel, chipboard and a poinsettia.  This is one of my mom's Christmas presents.

These are the letters that I made and Mollie gave to Margaret for Christmas.  I stained the letters.  Covered them with paper.  Embellished them with ribbons, bells, letters, glitter and bling.  I think that they turned out lovely.  The papers are My Mind's Eye.  Love these!
