9 Months Old

This month was so special because it was our babies first Christmas! It was so much fun he loved to open presents but didn’t like santa one bit! He got a walking toy for christmas and loves to push it and walk around. He has his first New Years Eve party but was feeling very sick that night. He ended up having croup and we took him to the walk in clinic at the hospital. He is just starting to feel better now, thank goodness!

Gift bag turned wall art

When I went to target and saw this gift bag I knew I needed to have it. But I thought it was too cute to give away, I wanted to keep it for years to come and put it up every christmas!

I looked for a frame to put it in for a while and couldn’t find anything so I thought I would put it on our chicken wire frame, as well as all the christmas cards we have gotten! Hopefully I will find a cute frame to put it in for next christmas but for now I am loving how it looks in its new home.

Mini Stocking!

Steven and I have two super cute burlap stockings that I ordered off an etsy site a few years ago. Since then the shop has stopped making the same stockings so I couldn’t order one for Hendrix. One of my friends was out shopping and saw a mini burlap stocking and thought I could do something with it to make it Hendrix’s. It was a little girly with the flower and tassel, and it hung the opposite way that our stockings hang.

I took of the flower and tassel and moved where the brown strap is to hang it going the right way. I had some left over pom pons from my trailer curtains and thought they would go nice on the stocking. December106 copy December107 copy

I used cardboard to cut out an “H” and then wrapped it with twin. It is now hanging beside the big stockings and looks adorable! December108 copy December110 copy December112 copy December117 copy December124 copy
