I think I can officially say that I’m done with my holiday crafting and decorating. I guess I should never say never, but I wanted to sum up my season in one post:
1. It all started with my Front Door Holiday Decor post…it seems like only yesterday.
2. The Pretty Painted Pine Cones were so easy and versatile!
3. The 20-Minute Burlap Banner was the easiest project ever!
4. My DIY Square Boxwood Wreath with Burlap Bow was a hit! I can’t believe I was featured on Centsational Girl for this one! Still pinching myself!
5. Cute little reindeer feet! The perfect holiday gift from Miss L to her family members!
6. Cheap and easy gift card envelopes! Love these!
7. My first baking experience was a total success with these Chocolate Peppermint Blossoms!
10. Real acorn tops on craft balls and yarn balls…cute!
11. My holiday vignette, which I linked up to about a million link-up parties!
And now, I have a terrible story to tell you.
I wanted to end this post with a picture of my darling baby sitting on Santa’s lap. Fate would not have it though. You see, last Tuesday, I got her dolled up, we loaded her into the car, and drove her to Santa’s Chalet.
Her father waited patiently in line, while Miss L and I dawdled around…me carelessly snapping pictures of her while she wandered around in her puffy pink coat sucking on her pacifier.
The line got shorter, so Miss L and I joined Mr. Hoff…our big moment approaching.
I got out my camera to get my flash adjusted, fix my settings, etc., BUT THE BATTERY WAS DEAD.
Yes. You read that correctly. I would not make this up.
The lady behind us very kindly offered us her camera. We gratefully accepted and gave her our email addresses so that she could send the pictures to us. We snapped some pretty darn hilarious pictures of our terrified toddler screaming her head off on Santa’s lap, returned the camera, and waited.
We are still waiting….
I will keep you updated. We may end up going back to the Chalet on Saturday if we haven’t gotten the pictures. I cannot let this Christmas go by without a picture of her on Santa’s lap.
Sorry, Mr. Hoff.
