Merry Christmas!

We are loving this time of year! I've done a few festive things that my mom and sis want to see.

First, my advent calendar (this is the best Dallin smile I could get!). This was from Martha Stewart. If any of you want to make this, I'd be happy to share my tips since lots of her steps were either missing or didn't work..

Inside each tin can I included a scripture about Christ, an activity for the day and some chocolate.
My mom and I  used these cookie cutters to bake cookies. Here they are all packaged up.

So after a couple of pretty hectic days crafting, here we are hanging out today. I wanted to blow dry my hair, so I placed Thad on the ground outside my bedroom. Dallin decided Thad needed some toys! What a nice big brother. Merry Christmas!!
