Christmas Ornaments

Kasey and I made these Christmas ornaments for the tree and to give away to family.  Aren’t they cute?  This is Kasey’s pre-school picture. He fell down on the concrete before these were taken and skinned up his chin!  He’s my little accident prone boy.


Yo-Yo Christmas Garland

I think this is so cute!  It’s not mine, I stole it off a blog that I read, wouldn’t this be a cute idea for the Christmas tree?

What about this yo-yo tree?

Our babysitter

I haven’t talked about Kasey’s babysitter experience on my blog.  He had a really hard time adjusting to the babysitter and I was worried about what we were going to do.  It took him about a month, but he finally would go inside her house without crying and had a good day.  Now, he loves it.  Doesn’t have any trouble, and she is wonderful!  They do crafts and he has a little girlfriend there, Anna.  I am so happy with her.  She made all the parents a little scrapbook.  She took 2 paper sacks that you get from the grocery store and put them together in a book, punched holes in the edge and put cute ribbon on them.

Christmas Candy Jar Quilt

I got the candy jar quilt done (well it’s not quilted yet) but it’s all pieced together.  I have to find backing for it, I want flannel and would be really happy if I could find some red Christmas Candy.  Another shopping trip!CIMG3565

I have 20 different Christmas candy fabrics in the quilt.  This is one of my favorites.

CIMG3567  And this one is!  I love the popcorn!  I really like the fabric for the lids too.  It was just one I had in my stash but it’s gray with flakes in it, like an old style galvanized lid.  CIMG3566

Santa 2009 & Cave Restaurant

We went to see Santa at the bank today.  It was really nice because there weren’t that many kids there and we didn’t have to wait in line at all. 


Kasey told Santa he wanted a car.  Mark bought him a hot wheels set at Wal-mart, while Kasey was with us.  Then Mark put it in the closet.  So I think that’s why Kasey is saying he wants a car. 


After we left Santa, we went to Richland to the Cave Restaurant. It’s about a half hour from Lebanon.  We rode a hay wagon to the cave, there were little cabins along the way lit up for Christmas.  Here are Mike and Becky. CIMG3539

Inside the cave restaurant.  Kasey was trying to climb up the walls.  This is Gracie, Mike and Becky’s daughter.


The kids fed the goldfish in the pond.


The goldfish, they were pretty small.


I really should learn to take better pictures.  They had a guy playing the piano.  It really made for a nice evening.

Leaving the cave, heading back to the cars, it was cold!

When we were in the restaurant, guess who came to eat?  Santa Claus!  That was funny because the kids were all excited that Santa was there.  We told him that he was hungry and needed to eat before he headed back to make more toys.  He was a really good looking Santa too, nice white beard. 

All in all, it was a fun evening!
