Christmas this year was a lesson in letting go if ever I saw one.
We've all taken turns being sick - tho I skirted the edge of sickness mostly, until Christmas eve ;)
Many many plans were abandoned. Much less of a handmade component than I would have liked.
But these things happen right?
But Santa still came through with Miss Big A's sweet request for this cake - no way could I have made that - she was very specific - and ever so sweet on Santa's knee - shyness gone and a twinkle in her eye.
Little Miss A didn't really get the whole Santa concept enough this year to make a request, but I knew that this would be it -
My big project for the girls was a proper dressup box - no I didn't make the box ;) I planned to make quite a lot more things to go inside, but the time-factor collided with the sick factor...
This bench seat with the storage under the seat, fit the bill perfectly. Big Miss A is in the middle of an obsession with beds - she makes them all over the house and gets furious with anyone who dares to touch or move said bed. She immediately went to work turning the top into a bed of course.
Little Miss A didn't take this dress off until it had to come off for the wash. That girl loves dresses.
The dresses were a huge hit, which was great since she utterly rejected the Christmas pajamas ;)
The pictures are kind of terrible - due to the fact that a certain (youngest) child of mine had us awake at *4am* Christmas morning. I actually don't remember most of it - thank goodness I've got these pictures - terrible or not lol!
Now that Christmas is over, I'm on to the run of birthdays that follow Christmas rapid-fire.
Little Miss A is first up - I should have something to show soon.....
