Happy Thoughts

Last week was . . . not so good.
This week will be better. It's looking up already.
I see sunshine out my windows, hear fewer coughs from my girls,
and life seems to be getting back to normal.
The other day, when we weren't feeling great enough to go out,
but we needed something to do, we made Christmas gift tags.

The girls had a lot of fun.

Sierra was pretty serious about it :)

Even Kam helped. She was in charge of the hole punch.

We are already so excited for Christmas around here!
What are you doing to prepare?

Wow- fancy name tags! When I run out of those sticker ones you buy in a package of 50 I just start writing on the present itself. Y'alls is so much prettier!

Misty said...

Those are so cute! This sounds really silly but I had never thought to make them like that. I TOO buy the package or just write on the package with a Sharpie! I know...LAME!

Christmas wrapping...not my strong suit!!!

I LOVE it Liz! Please send some crafty inspiration my way ... I'm so not talented in that aspect! Glad the girls are feeling better and I'm glad your spirits are up as well! :)

Love you!

Super cute! What a great mama you are. I love it.

I haven't really done anything yet. Last year I was all over it. I decorated around Nov 5. This year, I'm waiting a bit later, but I can't even gather the motivation to do it. I'm sure it will kick in soon.

I actually just ordered a punch to make my holiday tags. I love what you did with yours and that the girls had fun.

those turned out cute. We are doing nothing yet...need to get some pictures taken and get my christmas letter written.

Those are cute!

Those name tags are SUPER cute! We haven't done anything to get ready for Christmas....I'm still in Fall mode right now! Last year I made some cute name tags with some of the boys pictures though.

We've been talking about making presents this week while my girls are off track. I just hope it ends up happening.

Great activity to involve the kids.

~~Mel~~ said...

Very nice! You and your girls are all so talented.

Connie Weiss said...

Those are adorable!

I'm sorry to say I'm doing nothing to prepare. My husband is being a total scrooge this year and it's effected my excitement.

I need to get it together soon!

What a fun idea and those gift tags turned out fabulous!! I usually make gift tags myself each year, but Mikayla could probably start making a couple of her own with me. I'm really hoping to get going on pre-Christmas stuff very soon. I have lots of fun stuff left over from the bazaar!

Abra said...

How fun! I recognize those cupcakes- Martha Stewart. :) I love making tags, I didn't even think to make them this far in advance, but great idea!

I can't wait till Audrey gets old enough to join in on the fun, until then, it's a hole punch for her. :)
