Merry Christmas Swap Goodies

Jessica from Blessings In The Country was my swap partner and she sent me a box full of goodies. Amy from Bumble Bee Lane always works so hard to match up everybody for her swaps. Thanks Amy!

I'm borrowing her picture with permission. Look at the cute flour sifter, it's sitting on my mantle now. I loved the cross stitch goodies. I was wanting to make the Merry Primitive Christmas one, I had the pattern and had never found the time to make it. She sent a stump doll, I've made some and always give them away. The towel is wonderful prim and Christmasy. The candle smells lovely and look at those cookie cutters. I was excited to get the socks, I bought all my girls a pair of them for Christmas because they are so soft and now I have some. The cookies in the back disappeared with a couple kids along with the candy canes. There was all sorts of teas to choose from too. Thanks so much Jessica!!

Merry Christmas

Christmas morning at our house.

Amy and Kaitlyn playing headbanz at the Grandparents.

This part of You've got Mail always makes me think of my mom.

Merry Christmas Eve!

December Christmas Fun

Amy's class party--snowball fight between the boys and girls with marshmallows

They also played candy cane volleyball with a balloon and pass the ornament with a candy cane and made two ornaments.

Jaime's band concert

Christmas fun with the girl scouts at Union Station. We saw Arrgh A Pirate's Christmas and then walked over to Crown Center to get some candy. We tried booking a tour but they were full on that day.

Amy reading in the Christmas program at church.

A visit with Santa

 We picked up Kaitlyn's stuff for the last time from K-State she'll graduate in May but is done with classes.
Amy was entertaining herself while we moved stuff out.

Prim Swap Ornies

These cute bulb ornies are from Amy at Bumble Bee Lane. Thanks Amy!

This prim stocking is from The Stone House Primitives. Thank you so much!

This sweet snowman is from Jessica who blogs at Blessings in the Country. Thanks Jessica!

These are the ornaments I made for the swap.  I bought those cute paper mache boxes in a pack of 6 different shapes at Joann's last year but couldn't find any this year.

Our annual KCAP ornament swap

 It was that time again for our annual swap. All these mamas but a few I met online when I was pregnant with Amy. I pulled my kiddos out of school for the day since they very rarely get to see their friends. Ornaments swap, mama swap, good food and great friends!

I made these ornaments with a shower curtain for a base.

My tree ornaments--not exactly what I was shooting for but still cute.

Oven pads for the mama swap

I will add a picture on later of the ornaments I received.I was only in two swaps this year, I don't need to be an overachiever! :-)
