I think "big brother" is kind of excited to see what's in the box too.
When I saw this outfit (it has red leggings with polka dots, like the middle flounce.) It reminded me of an elf outfit for a girl elf.
Now we have a cabbage patch Mrs Claus . . . this was the last picture . . she was getting tired of posing for pictures . . . which is rare for her :)
I wanted to make her some Christmas sweatshirts but I could not find and size 2T sweatshirts that didn't have some decoration/wording on the front. Instead I settled on long sleeved t-shirts.
Everything was going great until I tried to get the "snow writer" paint working . . . no dice. So I got out my trusty tooth picks and made the words and the "stars/snowflakes" by dipping the toothpicks in the paint.
I love the Let It Snow picture . . . I know the t-shirts are too big, but she will be able to wear them for several years . . and maybe wear them as sleep shirts in the summer.
Now, to finish Christmas presents. Last year I made red and black "sock hats" for her dad (my nephew), her mom and her 2 brothers. I put a Felix the Cat patch on them . . he is the mascot of their high school. That picture was a hoot.
|They, and Matt's dad, brother and sister were in Gulf Shores last Christmas.|
Their mom had died the previous Feb and she wanted some ashes spread there . . .
it was her favorite place.
This year they are all getting basketball beanies. I have E's and her mom's made. working on Matt's (dad) hat now. Will finish brothers and then decide if I am making matching hats for E, her mom and her two aunts (my nieces.) May be suffering crochet burn out by then :(
