Family Pictures 2013

This year we had our friend Anna do our pictures and they turned out great!

late 1 year old post!

Vivian Celeste turned 1 on October 15th!

She can walk, say mama, dada, nod yes, say yes, climb, dance, sing, give kisses, hugs, plays with her sissy and many more things!
She really hates being thrown up in the air, being left alone, eating normal food, not having the attention on her etc.

We love her and cannot believe she is 1! Especially since she is still in 6-9 month clothing and weighs 17 pounds!

Tree Skirt

This year via the request of Andrew, I am making stockings and our first tree skirt * we have been married 4 years and this is our first tree skirt, don't judge!*

Here is the site I used for the cut out of the main skirt.

I used a pre-made piping and added super wide red ribbon for the back ties.


1.3 yards red chevron fabric

36 inches (at least, this amount only makes a knot)wide red ribbon

5.5 feet pre-packaged Scarlet piping


Fray check (for cut ends of ribbon)

Plastic cup for center tree opening measurement

Chalk pencil for half circle

What I did:

1. Made all the cuts as site instructs above
2. Surged all edges of fabric (optional)
3. Pinned and sewed piping along all edges
4. Spaced and sewed on ribbon and fray checked the cut ends
