Holiday Decorations

My mom made this ceramic tree.  I have always LOVED it!

The card holder my Mammaw made in 1969.  Lucky for me, she dated everything.  

The quilt stocking I made from an old quilt of my Dad's grandmas.  The big stocking in the middle is one I remember always hanging up for decoration at Mammaw and Pappaw's house when I was little.

The Many Hats of Maw

On Thanksgiving the great grandkids were each getting to pick out a hat of Maw's to have.  I thought it would make a great photo for all the ladies to wear one of Maw's hats.

Lola's Newest Obsession

Lola had $30 dollars left from her $40 she got for her good grades.  (She spent the first 10 on feathers for her hair...she learned that they were kind of a waste of money.)  So the last 30 was spent buying her own guitar.  She has had in in her hands since it came out of the box.  We finally got it tuned today.  I caught her in the pictures below singing a Justin Beiber song and playing along.

Lola's Sleepover

Big sister Sophie had a sleepover a couple of weekends ago so now it was Lola's turn.  She invited Arabella, Kiley, and Kaitlyn.  They painted some t-shirts, ate junk food, listened to music, played xbox, danced, played dolls, played Barbies, and watched a movie.  Then in the morning we had BLUE pancakes.  We have had purple pancakes a couple of times over the past few weeks so Lola wanted to change it up a bit.

Sophie's Sleepover

I have promised Sophie for a while that she could have a sleepover with her girlfriends.  She invited 5 girls from her class.  It was a LOOOOONG night of singing, dancing and screaming.  I think everyone had a great time though.

Tons of Snacks

They all got to paint purple t-shirts.

Then everyone painted each others nails purple.

Then we had prom night.  The girls all dressed up in Sophie's dresses and did each others make-up.  First was the fashion show then the dancing.

Yes, they were dancing on my coffee table.

I guess dancing to the ipod wasn't enough so then they played Dance Central on the xbox Kinect.

They FINALLY fell asleep watching Glee.
