Christmas Break

Filed under: Family,Fun,Picture — Kindel @ 5:39 pm

One of the highlights of Christmas break-Christmas Day, actually:

I drove a tractor! My grandfather is a farmer and we went up to his land. He cranked it up, I hopped on and took it for a spin!


My little helper…

For the record, kids almost always put a smile on my face. No matter what I’m feeling inside, they always seem to turn it into something warm and fuzzy.

For instance, I looked up from the book I was reading to another child to find this:

Now normally, this cute little girl would be trying to get me to read to her, no matter what I was doing. Today, however, she was entertaining another little boy by “reading” to him. Of course that meant that she was pointing to pictures and mumbling but they were having a ball!

A few minutes later, I looked up and saw this:

While it looks like she had this kid in a choke hold, in reality she was “holding” him and he was thoroughly content. To have them getting along was quite a blessing this morning! It only lasted a few minutes but it was a beautiful display of love!

My second attempt at thrifty craftiness…

Filed under: Decorating,Hobby,Picture — Kindel @ 8:02 pm


I didn’t intend to post again so soon but the crafting bug has bitten!

These were existing prints in the frames that I had and I just added the ribbon to hang it. I love it! Although, I might need thicker ribbon…I think it looks a little awkward because it’s so thin…I don’t know…

Again, picture taken with the phone.

What do you think? 

This “art” was inspired by my friend, who was inspired by The Nester.

Isn’t this a great idea?! It’s real simple. Materials:

  • scrapbook paper
  • ribbon
  • styrofoam
  • tacks

I took Christmas scrapbook paper (that I found for 75% off!) and mounted it on styrofoam and hung with ribbon on some tacks. Awesome, huh? And the best part: it was CHEAP!!!

I’m all about some cheap decorations!



P.S. Speaking of cheap decorations, I got a TON of Christmas decorations from 50-75% off a few days after Christmas! This is pretty much the only way to go!

P.P.S. I took this picture with my phone. Don’t hate.
