From somebody's trash to my treasure. I like to re-style & re-create what was once a cast off. Isn't that what Jesus does with us?

Nutcracker Ballet

Merry Christmas to All --
Now that we got our youngest one's birthday party done, we can finally concentrate on Christmas preparations. She had a lovely time. It all went so well.. I was so delighted! Here are a few pictures from the big day. Enjoy!
We hired a teenager from Rachel's creative movements class to teach the nine girls some ballet steps. It was adorable watching them all dance around our family room. All adorned in fancy outfits that they wore for the occasion. My two girls are in the silvery sequins.
After the dance lessons we had a yummy tea party with snowflake sandwiches, pink gingerale (at the birthday girl's request, of course) and some yummy vanilla and raspberry cupcakes adorned with dancers. A sweet affair!
After seconds and thirds were consumed, the girls made pretty purple tutus to take home. 
The girls used rainbow colored ribbons to tie in between each piece of tulle. So creative and so cute!
And of course the evening was not complete until we visited the sweet shop! Everyone took home a little sugar in their sparkly bags along with their beloved nutcrackers.

Merriest of Merry's!!

'Tis the Season

Merry Christmas!
I've been decking the halls with some `vintage finds. Come. Take a look.
One of my daughters was in a Christmas pageant. She was happy to be an angel!
I love how I captured the picture just as she was about to wave.
Tomorrow we celebrate my baby's sixth birthday. It's so hard to believe! We are having a Nutcracker ballet theme. I'll share pictures with you when it's all over.
