The girls have been helping me with the baking and the cooking the past couple of days. We made Chocolate Chip Cookies, No Bake Cookies, Chocolate Pretzel Candies, Gingerbread Cookies, and Fruit Salad.
Xiera was my BIG helper when making the chocolate pretzel candy treats.
Zella was in charge of the M&M's and Hersery Kisses, sneaking a few bites here and there. ;)
We visited my parents tonight for Christmas Eve. Xiera and Zella loved my parents Choo Choo Train ornament. When you turn on the switch it plays the tune to Jingle Bells and the train goes around and around on the track inside.
Zella was really impressed with Grandma's Manger Scene. (The True meaning of Christmas!) ;)
Xiera loved making her new Tink doll fly while watching her New Tinkerbell movie.
We then went and drove around the neighborhood Oooooing and Awwwwing over the neighbor's Christmas lights.
Merry Christmas Everyone and many blessings from our home to yours!

Zella says Good Morning!!!!! ;)
Last night I FINALLY finished the doggy diva halter I was talking about in an earlier post. I made it for a special Shar Pei doggy customer of mine. ;) This is my first time designing clothing for a diva pup so I am a bit nervous. I checked the measurements over and over again so I have my fingers crossed that it fits perfectly and can't wait to see pics of Miss Roxy wearing her very own mini me. I will definitely be sharing the pics with all of you so please keep checking back! ;) I don't want to reveal it completely yet, so here are a few sneak peeks! ;)
And here is a pretty Pink Rose collar I made to match. ;) A girl needs to accessorize of course!

In between crocheting the pretty flower custom hats yesterday, I took Xiera and Zella outside to play in the snow. Zella's snowsuit restricted a lot of her movement. It was quite amusing to watch her waddle in the snow. She couldn't pick her feet completely up while walking so she made little snow trails with her feet.
Zella didn't find it very amusing at all! Her expressions say it all! LOL!

I officially closed up my myspace shop and am not taking anymore orders until after the holidays. I will begin taking orders again on the 1st of January. I am just swimming in Christmas orders and loving it. The pressure is on, but don't worry, I work well under pressure.
This was the week of hats. Hats, hats and more hats! I have had a lot of custom orders I finished this week! Here are just a few of the hats I have made this week. This red and cream version of my Candy Gingerbread Man hat turned out very cute. I actually took 2 more orders yesterday for this particular hat.
The button initial hats are very popular this year. I have made them in a lot of color combinations. Here are just a few I made this week.
And last but certainly not least is this gorgeous lavender rose on creme hat I made for a beloved customer. I am in love with the way this hat turned out. It is just so delicate and lovely.
I have a few more custom hats to work on today and then it is on to sweaters and a doggy diva halter. Yep you heard right! A Doggy Halter!!!! So stay tuned! ;)

I took the girls to go see Santa on Saturday. Before we left I had to take a few quick pics of the girls in their adorable reindeer dresses made by Kim of 1976cook on Ebay. She has the cutest pillowcase dresses! The piggy poofs were made by my dear friend Jeanine of Monkey Cheek Boutique.
The pink fur cuffs were crocheted by yours truly. They are removable and can be made in a variety of colors! They are very stretchy because I crocheted pony tail O's into them. I had to pin Zella's onto her shirt because she was not a fan of them. Hers came off immediately after these pics. Xiera loved hers and kept them on all night.
Zella to no surprise was not thrilled with the idea of sitting on some strange elderly man's lap and gave me "the look" as if to say, "You better be sitting with me mommy!" LOL! Xiera on the other hand was ecstatic. She was so funny on Santa's lap. She said, "Santa, I want Fur Berries and Little Lovables, Fill 'Em With Love!" Then once we said our goodbye's to Santa, she told me she was mad because she forget to tell Santa she wanted the Barbie Diamond Castle with all the dolls, Horse and Carriage. I told her that Daddy and I would text Santa and let him know right away. ;)
Santa even brought his sleigh and the girls LOVED sitting inside of it! Zella didn't want to get out of Santa's sleigh and made sure to let everyone there know it. ;)
