Now all we need is snow

The kids had a blast decorating the tree yesterday. I bought a lot of new decorations on clearance after Christmas last year so getting to finally play with all the new stuff was like..well, Christmas!

Noah preferred to keep all his ornaments close together.
After a wee bit of help from mommy.

This cute little design is from Daffycat! It was a pretty quick stitch, which I love, and I enjoyed thinking of ways to finish it. Thanks Daffycat!

My second flat fold!

I learned a lot from the first flat fold I attempted and this one came out a ton better! Definitely more fun once you know what you're doing.
Now who's next? O.0

Happy Birthday Noah!!

My little bug turned 3 today!! He's grown so fast and it's hard to believe in a few months he'll be the middle child. Don't worry bud, you'll always be my (not so little) baby boy.

Grandma brought over some gifts this morning since she won't be able to make it to party later.

The new toys kept the kids distracted while I made a school bus cake! Obviously cake decor is not one of my strengths.

Yesterday I found this while searching for ideas for school bus decorations so I made one to hang on the front door.
Now I better get my butt moving and get the rest of his presents wrapped!

Romy's patterns

I discovered Romy's Cross Stitch Patterns blog a couple months ago and went a bit crazy stitching up some of her patterns with plans to do more! If stitching is your thing go check her out! She has a ton of cute patterns (for free!) and now has a book of new designs for sale.

Here's what I've stitched so far. Unfortunately I didn't get these first two finished off in time for Halloween.

My first flat-fold!

Not sure if I'll make this one a flat-fold or an ornament
