A Summary of Our Holidays

This past month an half has included many crafts, projects, holidays and events.
It wouldn't be the holidays without the rush and stress- right?! haha
I attempted to make some decorative towels with Brayden's footprints...
For Thanksgiving we ran another 5k race. And I made a big thanksgiving dinner for my family.
I also did another "Wreath Revamp" from burlap to Christmas!
I created a Christmas back drop for our holiday card, and it would not have been complete without matching bow ties for Brayden and Chase.

We went to a wedding and Brayden wore a tux! 
I learned how to sew pajama pants.
We decorated for Christmas, and spent some time with family.
I made a homemade apple pie.
 Sewed an infinity scarf for my mother-in-law out- of out of some awesome fabric I snagged up at Hobby Lobby.
I also made several other hand-made gifts- let's just say my sewing machine was out for basically the whole month of December!
I also won our "first annual family ugly Christmas sweater party". 

Christmas Day 2014
(In matching pj pants- of course)

In the work life:
Started a small bathroom remodel. 
And started and finished a kitchen remodel in 10 working days. 

I also learned how to "arm knit" 
(found on Pinterest)
I first practiced with a small amount of yarn to make sure I could really learn do it right.
It is pretty easy to do, and the video is really helpful. Once you get the hang of it, you really can make a scarf in 20 minutes.
I already have an order list from all my co-workers too!

And last but not least, we ended 2014!
It was a great year, but I am looking forward to see what 2015 has to come.
I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Best wishes for your year ahead.
