"Candy Canes"

Apparently not many teachers have been sick this week so I have been home all week trying to keep busy. The other hard part is that it has been raining all week long (at this very moment it's hailing with a side of thunder and lightening) and I don't want to go out. Todd realized that I was going crazy so he bought me some fabric I have been wanting to make curtains for our living room! I was so excited... PROJECT! I think they turned out pretty good. I even had a little extra to make a few throw pillows. Anyway, here is the final product. I think they turned out pretty cute. Todd thinks they look like candy canes!

Slowly but surely we are adding all the little touches to our place and making it our home. Next project, refinishing this little shelf to use as a end table.

Christmas Virginia Style

We had a blast in Virginia this Christmas. We made a last minute trip out there to spend the holidays with my brother Justin and his family. The kids had a fabulous time on Christmas morning! They were shocked to see that Santa had come and brought so many fun gifts.

Porter enjoying the "rain stick" he got from his cousins in the Philippines/Australia.

Sienna doing a "sassy" pose in her new gloves, hat, and scarf.

It was about 15* when this picture was taken. I'm absolutely freezing!

We went to the air and space museum out by the Dulles Airport that they used in the movie Transformers. This is the plan that transforms during it. Todd had to have a picture with it!

We had a lot to be grateful for this holiday season. We are so blessed to have the families that we have and the support they give us each day. We are so glad we had the opportunity to be with Justin's family this Christmas and New Years. We are already looking forward to going back soon. We can never get enough of them!
