Happy Holidays!

There's still 1 hour left, so Merry Christmas!!  It's been a crazy busy month (hence the lack of posts), but now that Christmas is done, I can sit back and take a breath.
Some of the things we did this month:

Now that Sally is with me most of the time, I made her a pet paw stocking (tutorial here).  Her's is on the right (white with pink paw pads) and Santa got her an Ewok toy for Christmas (she loves it!  It's her new baby).

This year, I included painted wooden monogram letters for the stockings since our names aren't on them.

We made a gingerbread house - the first time for all of us!  I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner, but my niece had a lot of fun.  I think this will be a new tradition for us!
My sister & niece
My niece had her first dance performance - the Christmas Jubilee!  She takes both tap & ballet and her class tapped to "All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth".  So cute! (and fitting since she doesn't have her two front teeth!)

My nephew's in his middle school's advanced band, so I watched them perform Christmas songs at school.

We also did Christmas at my house this year, which was a lot of fun.  We kept the food fairly simple (lasagna, garlic bread, caesar salad, cake, chips & guacamole) so we could focus on enjoying ourselves and spending time together.  And Santa was good to the kids again this year.  :)

This was also my first attempt at a 2 layer cake - I can use a lot more practice, but it still ended up looking ok and it tasted great!

We had another great Christmas and I hope you all had the same!
