This is one of the signs I have been working on for Christmas presents.

Today I finished a very sweet little boys Christmas present…
and no it is not Brock’s… it belongs to a little boy in town... that
loves Lightening McQueen, Mater, and Sally!!

Here are two pics of the finished products…
I AM SOOOO Pleased with it!! I wish that Santa
could be there to watch him open his presents!! But he will
have to settle for a picture of him on Christmas morn!!
The family has a very special Christmas morning feast
that they have... then they open their Christmas presents...
Doesn’t that sound soooo sweet!! I don’t know of a year that
I have been so anxiously awaiting Christmas!! And I don’t
really care what Santa brings me… I just want to see all
of those adorable faces as they open up their gifts that Santa

I was in the middle of painting yesterday… when my mail
lady beeped her horn… She had a package for me!!I got my
Secret Santa Ornaments!! They are so cute!!My secret
Santa and her daughter sent me this package…
Inside I found a really cute and sweetly made card…

time together crafting for their special time!! My package
came all the way from… AUSTRALIA!!
Check out all of these goodies…
A star… with glitter!!

Hubby is loving that one!!
He baked two pecan pies to take to
work for his Christmas luncheon… and did a great job!!

cookies for this. We did it today!!! !Sunday the
whole family will be going to Hubby’s moms

On Thursday my best friend, Ali is came out to help me
get my brother’s Christmas present so it looks what it is
supposed to… (I will show you all pics after Christmas Eve)
My sister in law checks out the blog from time to time…
Brother can’t see!! ;-) I am having some trouble with this one!!
She helped me figure out why it didn't look right...
