Home Office Tour

Our office feels somewhat finished, so I decided to take some pictures and do a post about it. This room is NEVER this clean, FYI. It serves as the Lego room as well as the office, and there are usually hundreds of Legos everywhere!

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

We are certainly getting into the Christmas spirit over here! The kids seem to be the perfect ages (4 and 6) to enjoy the holiday festivities and are very helpful and into the various tasks (decorating, baking, putting up lights, etc.). And I love the fact that I can decorate as much as I want and don't have to worry too much about little fingers grabbing or breaking things! Those early years were amazing and went by too fast, as we Moms all know...

Anyway, I just wanted to share some pictures of decorating we've been doing around the ole' homestead. Fun fun!

December Sewing Orders

I feel like I've got a pretty good handle on Christmas orders, and other busy tasks associated with this time of year seem to be falling into place. I'm sure there are some things I'm forgetting, but hey, everything seems under control right now! :-)

Here are some sewing orders recently wrapped up (yes, chevron is still kind of a big deal)...

Household Chores

The boys' new favorite evening activity is washing dishes. Needless to say, Jeremy and I are into it! Tyson came home last week after preparing for the Friendship Feast at school and announced that he knows how to wash dishes and wipe down tables and counters. Most evenings since then, he has been washing the plastic dishes after we load most of the dishwasher, and Miles is helping too. It was the cutest thing watching Tyson show Miles how to do it.

Holiday Mini Sessions

The past couple weekends I've had holiday mini sessions here at our property. We have quite a few evergreen trees which lend themselves nicely to holiday photos. The weather hasn't been ideal, but we made the best of it. Late November in Illinois is quite unpredictable!

I wanted to post some previews here. There were a couple families wanting to keep their pictures secret to use for Christmas cards and gifts, but here are some that I am allowed to post. :-) Enjoy!
