More Christmas

Grandma Ronda (Mark's mom) and Haddie reading a book. Her pony is pathetically tiny, but I'm just so excited that she's finally getting some hair!

Not a very good picture, but I just wanted to show what I made for gifts for Christmas this year. I made Ronda a tile with vinyl lettering that says "Grandmas are Moms with lots of frosting" and an easel to display it on. I had so much fun making gifts this year! I felt like everyone really liked them, compared to some generic store-bought gift.

For Cory and Angelina (Mark's bro & sis-in-law) I made them a tile that says "Love doesn't make the world go round. Love makes the ride worth while"
For Mark's grandma I made one that said "PHENES - Est. 1945" but didn't get pics of it. I made magnets for everyone in Mark's family. I also made beaded watch bands for Angelina & Ronda and a bracelet for Lyndsay

Ronda kept telling everybody what their presents were before they could get them all the way unwrapped. She was so excited! Finally Mark got after her & told her she really couldn't spoil what they'd (Mark, his mom & grandma) gotten me. They made her put packing tape over her mouth until I'd opened it - they got me a Cricut! (Which I'm now having WAY too much fun with! Ha ha)

Me, being a nerd & posing for my 400th picture of the morning. Mark gets camera happy
That's my sister-in-law, Lyndsay on the left.

After going through tons of Christmas pics, I've decided I need to get better about taking control of the camera. We have very few pictures with Mark in them since he's proclaimed himself camera man.

  1. I also had a ton of fun making gifts this year! I'm excited to do it again next year. A lot more thought and time went in to those gifts. :)
