Busy Busy

Life is busy!! With Christmas and cleaning, and the kids...I swear it doesn't stop!!

Christmas was a blast. Lacey is finally able to understand that Santa comes and leaves presents. She woke up Christmas morning so excited to see presents from Santa.

Since it is finally after Christmas I can tell you all what we made. Last year my friend Julie made cute reindeer art for the grandparents. So we made some for the grandparents too.

Finally I made coasters for our parents. I took regular tiles, felt for the back, modge podge, and a spray sealer. Hot glued the felt on the back. Picked out our favorite pictures and modge podged them to the tiles. Let them sit for a day or two. Came back and modge podged the tops. I did 3 coats of modge podge. After a couple more days I spray sealed them. I did 4 coats of the sealer.
They were a great hit with the parents. They loved them.

I gave Brandon his present on Christmas Eve. Liz did an amazing job!! He absolutely loved it!! He talked about it all day on Christmas.
Admiring it! He loved it!!

I am down to 164. 23lbs down! 9lbs away from hitting my goal weight!!
