Before the whole putting them to bed & waking them up at 2 am happened...Adelaide decided that she was going to help decorate the tree!!! Here, she is choosing what will go on next, as she stands on the arm of the couch...gingerly balancing over the wash stand...You'd think my kids were part monkey!!!!!
A few days earlier, I worked away at one of two quilts I was making for the girls! Well...One was tackled anyways! It was my first quilt ever & now belongs to Sarah...With the holidays almost over (tonight is New Years Eve) I'll find the time to make Adelaide's!!!
With the help of two brilliantly talented friends, (Lea & Marguerite) this was the end result!! The idea was to cover the girls in the new quilt after they'd fallen asleep on Christmas Eve...however, plans have a funny way of, ya know, NOT falling into place...When I tried to cover them, they woke up & started fussing to beat the band! I ditched the idea of wrapping them, turned out the lights, ran like heck & prayed they'd go back to sleep...Sean & I were SOOO tired!
And Mrs D!!!!! I LOVE the ornaments!!!
Oh & Hi Tea is booked!!!!!
THIS was worth a VERY close inspection!
And suddenly she got it!! Sitting on one toy, she drummed away!! I was rather impressed with Adelaide's ability to figure out what "it" even was!!
What a smash hit...pardon the pun ;)
On another musical note...Santa brought the greatest rattles made of antler & babish (hide)....Gorgeous keepsakes to add to their collection of ultra cool things!
and Christmas quilted wall hangings from Auntie Marguerite...
& living in the Yukon...there is plenty of THAT weather going around!!
