I am very excited about Christmas and one thing I love to do every year is make candy. So my girls usually help. Here's a picture of Seryn helping me this year. We were making carmel for the pecan turtles. YUM!!!
(Right here, she's saying 'hot.') And here she is, just being too darn cute!
I also got my hair cut and colored it. It's always fun to have new styles from time to time. I asked Shane what I should do (because my hair was getting quite long. I think we cut off 4-5" from the bottom layer.) He said, "Something sexy, but not too short." So this is what I did. Here's a picture of it flipped out...
...and curled under. Although, the first time I did this, it startled me to realize how much my hair styled this way made me look like my mom. But in a good way. It was just a little shocking at first. Perhaps, if she flipped hers out, she'd look like me? (By the way, for this picture, I was getting ready for my company party. So, no. I don't normally get this dolled up.)
And Lylli has finally made it to the next stage of her quilt!!! If you remember, she started it over the summer. She cut up her favorite blanket so she would quit sucking her fingers and built a quilt. It has taken us a while but now we need to put it on the quilting frame and tie it! She's soooo excited!!! And she did most of the sewing herself! It looks so cute! And she did a great job!
Well, I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!!! (Oh...and I put up a new scene from my latest book!)
