Happy New Year!

It has been a great month, full of fun stuff. We have been able to spend alot of time with our families and the people we love the most.

Christmas was great. We celebrated for a week straight. Parties and families. Goodtimes.

I got a flip video camera from Zach! I am posting some videos at the end of this post.

We are also getting some new furniture today! A new kitchen table and a new couch. Here is what they look like.....

I am pleased with them.

They are modern with a little country. Or vice versa.

They will be delivered sometime this month.

A little while back, we got a lot of snow!!! This is our porch. And it still came down for a while after this photo was taken. We probably got 3 to 4 more inches after this.

Here are some Christmas cookie! They were Roasted almond cinnamon cookies, with white chocolate and cinnamon candies with sugar on top. Super good!

Nana with the grandchildren. She's the best.

I made aprons for all of the women in my life for my homemade christmas gift. Here are some pictures.
This was Kaitlyns. I took alot of time to pick out the right fabrics for each person. I knew Kait would love this funky fabric and the peace sign just tops it off.

Grandmomi's. This was the only one that was a different style than the rest. I did this one and decided that the other pattern was alot easier and faster!!!

This one is Joel's, my bro in law. He is a foodie and loves to bake. This is one side....

This is the other. I got both of these fabrics from IKEA. Love it.

This one is Cassandra's. The bird fabric is also from Ikea.

This is the other side. I cut out one bird from the ikea fabric and used the fusible fabric to make a centerpiece ....=)

This one is Mamaw's. It is a little hard to see the print, but it is several different birds in a realistic "farmy" setting. I know how much She and Papaw loved the birds at the farm, and I thought this fabric really captured that.
The other side.

This is the special tag that I found at our local fabric store!! My name was already on it. I just had to sew them on. This was the first one that I did, so it is not the best. But I thought they were super cute!!

So here are two videos for you to enjoy. I tried to post another, but it won't upload for some reason. It was of Kole's big christmas present, a netbook computer. He loves it! He does alot of stuff on the computer for school so it will be nice for his room.
The first video is of a bunch of us on Christmas acting silly and dancing to "At Christmas Time".
The second video is of TT's apron.
The only aprons I didn't get pictures of was Linda's, my mother in law and my moms. Lindas is a french country scene and stripes in a pretty blue and cream . Mom's is floral and brown, made of linen. Love them both!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

That's a bunch of snow! And those aprons are adorable. What a great idea!

Great post! I love the furniture. You and your sister have very similar taste in furniture. The dining room set is great. I don't know why you ever had doubts about it. It's wonderful. Everyone must know that we had already been "dancing" (and I use the term loosely) for several minutes before the video started, hence all the huffing and puffing. Fun, fun times! (And MY apron is the BEST!) Love it, love it...just don't want to get it dirty. :(

I love the aprons, Megan! What a great idea and I love how you personalized them with the fabrics.

Glad you had a wonderful Christmas with family!
