    I hope that you have a wonderful Christmas with your family.  We are enjoying a cozy and quiet Christmas at home this year- no travelling for us!  It’s a good thing, because as of right now all three kids and the hubs are sick… boo!

    Our church coffee shop hosted a series of movie nights and the one we went to featured an appearance by Santa.  We got a pretty decent photo of the young cousins with Santa this year!  (Clearly I keep my definition of decent pretty low.)

    In any case, it was much better than the picture I got of Kate and James a few days later…

    That is one sketchy looking Santa!

    For my ornament this year, I decided to go with this darling reindeer that I saw on Pinterest.  I made mine before she posted her tutorial, and I found these teeny little heart buttons for the noses, but I thought her idea was super cute, and they were pretty easy and affordable to make!  Yay!

    The hardest part was finding matching pairs of branches on our trees- our crabapple had the branchiest branches and I mostly used those-

    I’m very happy with how these came out… yay!

    We also got a little punny with our Christmas card this year… I love how our garden gnome Halloween costumes came out (even if James wouldn’t wear most of his!) and wanted to use them in our card, here’s what I came up with…

    I hope that you have a beautiful Christmas!
