Puppy Pics

I have been so bad about taking pics of the puppies! It is kind of like the first child thing...with your first child you take two gazillion pictures of everything they do. By the time you get to the third you have two pictures from their whole first year! The first litter of puppies I took pictures of everyday! Sometimes more than once a day! With the current litter they are two and a half weeks old and I am barely taking their first picture!
I chose out one of the lighter puppies and the darkest puppy to show the difference in colors. It is amazing the subtle differences in their colors. Both of these guys happen to be males. Their eyes are just barely open and then just barely figured out how to crawl around. It is a good thing they don't stay like this forever, otherwise I would keep them all!!!

Pictures of Christmas

Here are some pictures of stuff I did for Christmas!! I made this bear outfit for my aunt:
This is what a disaster my kitchen table looked like the week before Christmas:

These are the hanging bear welcome signs all finished:
These are some little chickens I painted for my Aunt's kitchen, she loves chickens:
These are some bunny cookie jars I painted for my aunt and cousin:
This is my bunny holding his new Christmas tree:
I made these little bracelets for some pre-teen girls who helped out with the breast cancer walk this previous November in California. I am going to making more to sell and will donate all the proceeds to the breast cancer walk this next November. The three charms are a shoe (for the walk), the pink ribbon and the heart with pink ribbon:
This is how I packaged the little bracelets. It is a little pink bag with a tag I stole for my good friend, Mary. LOL I literally copied her idea exactly and she was nice enough to share some of her paper with me! I am not sure what line it is from:
I tried making some cinammon apples for Christmas! They were easy to make and fun. I got the recipe from the Betty Crocker cookbook. The only thing I didn't like was I thought they were going to be more like caramel apples. They are actually more like suckers though! Tee hee I should have paid attention that you cook the cinammon sauce to hard crack stage! Silly me! This picture was while they were drying before I wrapped them! I wrapped them in cello bags and ribbon:

Justin and the Horse

We recently went to Thanksgiving Point with Justin's brother Andrew and sister in law Jamie. While we were there Justin made this new friend...I thought it was a cute picture!!!

Pierced Ears

A couple of weeks ago I dragged DD Brianna to the mall to look at some clothing stores. She totally hates shopping! After two stores she was begging me to go home! As we were walking out I saw an ear piercing I asked Brianna if she would like to get her ears pierced! Her answer was "not today, maybe later!". I asked her a few times over the next week and her answer was always the same! So Friday afternoon out of the blue she tells me she wants to get her ears pierced now (like a Princess!). So we wait a few hours and I ask her again and she still wants to get them pierced. So I explain to her it is going to hurt....kind of like getting a shot at the doctors. She is still up for it! So we go to the mall and she chooses out pink princess sparkley earrings (of course). She did great when they actually pierced them! She didn't even whine and just cried a single tear. She thought she looked great with her new earrings!! When we got home that night before bed she wanted to take them out so they wouldn't get lost when she was sleeping! So I explained to her that she couldn't take them out for a while. She said well what am I going to do when I eat?! I don't want to spill on them!!! Such a princess!
