Christmas Crafts

Sorry the pics are small but that's all I could get blogger to let me upload.

Yesterday, Izzy and I spent the afternoon making all sorts of Christmas crafts. We made reindeers from her hand and foot prints, we made our hand print ornaments again, and we made these q-tip snowflakes that I found on this blog... 

She's got a lot of very fun crafts and activities for little ones and an amazing chocolate chip cookie recipe too. Though I don't have a pic of that as we ate them too quickly. :)

Izzy had a lot of fun playing with lots of glue and glitter. I had to modify the craft a bit but I think it worked out just as nicely. We started Isaiah's reindeer too but I think I need an extra set of hands on that one.

We're starting to feel better but I still seem to get a mid-night fever. I stayed home from a Christmas party tonight in hopes that the 3hr nap Joan allowed me to take and getting to bed early will take care of it for good.

The Dreaded Day

Well today was the day the family headed back to the states. We had a great two weeks... the only complaint being that it went too fast. It was fun to see my Mom's expressions and hear her thoughts as this was her first big overseas trip. I downloaded all their pictures too because they give a different perspective. It's been 3yrs now and a lot of things are normal to me... not so much to those visiting. I've got lots of thoughts to share from such a long time now but my blogging had really taken a back seat in my life. While I know it's not that big of a deal... I know that I'm thrilled to have a detailed account of the past three years and I'd like to keep that going. So maybe I'll have to do a 21 days of blogging to change my habit. :)

But for now.. I'm off to bed. I'm beat.

Blessings to all!
