Fall Flowers in Irish Beleek VaseBeleek is a well know pottery produced in Ireland, with shamrocks on it. My geraniums are blooming in the fall now, and there also is a sprig of sage in the vase. We love the neon colors of the geraniums in this vase. They are almost unreal, and we love Beleek pottery. Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
Holiday: Our Annual Christmas CardWe always take a holiday photo at Christmas. Here is ours for this year. This is my husband and I who are almost 70 years young. We enclosed this with our Christmas cards and it says:

Holiday: A Very Hairy ChristmasA good friend of mine recently cut his hair after years of letting it grow. I helped him pose for this holiday picture. He is always up for something crazy!

Holiday: Front Door Christmas CrossWe have had this particular door for years and I noticed that it had a "natural" cross in it. Well, this year, I decided that I would work with that natural cross for my outdoor decoration.
Holiday: Christmas Dining RoomThis is my dining room that I just finished.

Halloween Costume: Dora the ExplorerNothing to it, I just got a pink shirt, orange shorts, yellow socks, white shoes, backpack with purple straps, and I made a map by rolling up a piece of paper and drawing the eyes, eyebrows and mouth. I found "Boots" the monkey on Ebay.
Halloween Costume: GypsyPeasant Skirt, black long sleeve shirt, long scarf and old costume jewelry. None of this costume had to be made.
Costume: Funny TeethMy daughter has supplied me with endless, funny pictures and I thought I would share one here! She fixed herself up and added the teeth to top the outfit off! :)

Craft: Gingerbread HousesHere is a great tradition that our family has been doing for years now. It all started about 50 years ago when I decide to make a gingerbread house for Christmas. My first ones were fairly simple but over the years have gotten more complicated and quite intricate. Now, as was bound to happen, the kids and grandkids and even my great grandson have taken over.

Our Trip on the Polar ExpressLast year, we gave our boys, then 7 and 5, a trip on the Polar Express. We were unable to do it on Christmas Eve so we did it the day before. It was a total surprise. The train was in Hood River, about an hour away from our home.
Caiden At ChristmasThis is my just turned one-year-old son, Caiden. I took this a few weeks before Christmas. He had pulled the tree skirt from around the tree. I was in another room, and he called to me. When I looked in, he was wrapped up in it just like this!

Holiday Ornaments for Soldiers OverseasMy students wanted to create a holiday greeting for our soldiers overseas. I had a box of unusual shaped tiles that looked to resemble a holiday ornament. I spray painted them. When dried, the students wrote holiday greetings on one side of both tiles. We finished them up by gluing the two pieces together, adding a hanging ribbon and a bow on top. The soldiers who came to pick them up from Fort Dix loved them and told the kids they were sure they'd be a hit overseas!
AAHHHHH!Little one in front of the tree.

Megan's First ChristmasHere's Megan all decked out for her first Christmas!
Snowman Soup (Sugar and Fat Free)This is my Christmas tip. I have a friend who is diabetic, and cannot have anything with sugar, but also cannot use Nutrasweet as it gives him headaches. So I devised a sugar free (also fat free) hot chocolate mix using Splenda.
Savannah in Tomboy CostumeLast year I found it hard to make a costume for my daughter Savannah. So I gathered together some of my oldest son clothing. I dressed her like a Tom Boy. Take a look.
Making CostumesWhen making a costume, I have found the best place to get strange clothes is the Thrift Stores, and also have a husband willing to dress up in anything you buy. Enjoy the picture!
Four Leaf Clover (Hillsboro, OR)My son seems to find four leaf clovers in our front yard every single year. Since today is St. Patrick's Day, I sent him out to find me one to share with all of you. It took him maybe 5 minutes, he is a lucky guy.
