Christmas Bears and the family!

Hello! How was your Christmas?! Hope that you and yours had a wonderful celebration! It seemed to rush in and rush out so quickly this year! We had a very nice celebration full of family and yummy food and lots of goodies! Our son was able to come home despite the yucky weather and spend almost 2 days at home with us, which was super nice! It melts my heart to see my kids all together! :)

I wanted to stop by for a few minutes and share a couple of the gifts I made with you guys! I have 2 nieces and wanted to make them something special this year so I took out my SU! Build a Bear dies and went to work! I made each of them several little bears to dress and oodles of clothes to dress them in! They each got their own box to hold it all with tiny little envelopes to hold all of the clothes! It was a lot of fun! Here are some pictures of the finished project:

The bears and their clothes!

Here is a picture of hubby, the kids and I on Christmas morning! This is the famous hold the camera out at arms length and try to get everyone squooze into the frame shot!! I am crazy about these folks!!

Hope that your holidays have been wonderful so far and that the rest of the year is as happy! I have lots to share with you and will be back soonest!

Have a wonderful day!
