a little bit o’life in my camera


frosted ice cream cones and candy made by little hands that want to help in the kitchen


a wreath crafted from the Matthew Mead holiday issue, it was fun to make but cost too much for supplies


peeking in on the kiddos while bringing in wood, which brings me to say Texas has the strangest weather as we have been cold the last few days but today I woke up to the sun and by 3:00 it was 83 degrees.


hadley looking so sweet and lovely without her long hair.  today we put the kitchen table in the middle of the living room and crafted while watching Christmas Vacation.  it was great fun.


maggie dressed as a boy in her latest play (Greater Tuna) and if that wasn’t bad enough we laughed through watching these two as the craziest old ladies.  one of them is him. it always seems when something funny happens i am laughing way too hard compared to everyone around me, then i start thinking about it and can’t stop. it’s a problem.


pecan bites…i make these because I don’t like them and won’t eat them all. 

do you have a sweet tooth? mine needs to be punished, it’s out of control.

I love your candy canes! And I love your daughters hair! I had that same hair for a few years and loved it! Fun post!

Love that shot through the window - just what Christmas should look like. Sweet tooth? Not at all. Other than the occasional handful of cookies and pound of red and green M and Ms, and ....

Love the beautiful photo through the window! I know you enjoy everything that goes on with your big family! I remember when I had 4 kids at home! Good memories! And I want to make white chocolate covered pretzels but I hesitate...because I know I will eat them ALL! lol Enjoy your week! ♥

I have a horrible sweet tooth. It is in prison right now 'cause I'm off of sugar.

I wish I could get into crafty mode with my kids. I love the m&m trees how fun and easy!

Your daughter's hair is adorable. And I should have made something I don't like as a sweet, but haven't found it yet!

OH and we saw "A Greater Tuna Christmas" one year and it was THE BEST!

Those candy trees look so yummy!
Hadley's hair is adorable!
She looks like Audrey Hepburn.
I have been doing okay in the sweets department so far this holiday, but In a couple days I will be at my Italian Mama's house...and she will be trying to feed me up with her homemade Almond Roca and Gnocchis and all sorts of goodies.

Especially like the shot through the window, nice Christmas crafts , cool wreath (but does not look easy to make) and the little cone trees are a brilliant idea for keeping little hands happily busy!
Nice haircut, suits her.
Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Your photos are gorgeous Kate. Hadley could be model you know. Your house is the most festive I've ever seen. Merry Christmas.
