|I cut the other side of the card to put on the back of the ball. That way if it spins around on the tree you don't see the back of the photo paper.|
|Cute and super easy!|
|Christmas Forever stamps are really cute this year!|
|My sister found Doak's first year stocking, the puppy sings and dances, at a consignment shop for super cheap. Thanks Michele!|
|Kitties need stocking too! : )|
|Kitty Stocking Stuffers: $1|
|Mexican Dolls of Der and I. |
I love them in a creepy kind of way.
|I love to wrap and put gift bags together... the mess of paper, bows, tissue, etc. I put the fire on, pour a glass of wine, watch a Christmas movie and get to it!|
|If your not careful the wrapping paper, bags, boxes, etc. end up costing almost as much as the gifts! That's why the dollar store is a great place for tissue, bows and solid colored bags you can dress up.|
|I found these adorable pink and green stockings at Michael's Craft for a dollar each. I bought a bunch for gift cards and candy.|
|Reuse gift bags! Johnna gave us our gifts in these adorable paper bags with added details. I added a stocking and matching tissue and now they are ready for someone on my Xmas list.|
|BASS PRO SHOP|
I was told about the free Santa photo at Bass Pro as I stood in a long line at a mall that charged a ton money for a few photos with Santa. I complained that I missed the simple Polaroid shot we used to get when we were kids and the couple next to me agreed... so we left for Bass Pro!
|Doak was a bit confused at first but he just went with it...|
|This place is so cool. They have a bunch of different areas for kids to play while waiting for Santa.|
|Another shooting game for the kiddos... and me!|
|The "free Santa photo tactic" for getting people in the store worked because now I know what to tell Der to get me for Christmas. Ha! |
|Richmond is the "Capital of Tacky Lights!" We even made CBS news! Check out the story|
If you live in the area, especially if you have kids, it would be crazy not to check out some of the homes that are all lite up.
note: Home in these photos: Strath Rd. a few blocks from our house.
|Christmas music is blasting and the homeowners are so nice!|
|It is the perfect way to start the holiday season for absolutely nothing... except a little gas money considering there are so many participants throughout the city. So fun! |
