This year was the very first time we got to do Christmas with the Naughties and the first time in a while that I’ve got to spend Christmas with my side of the family. My sister made the yummiest prime rib, my mom made this delish artichoke crab dip and tiramisu and after all the presents and eating I was reminded of how much I LOVE the movie Enchanted.
The girls each got 3 presents from Uncle and I.
a necklaces (which I picked up at one of the flop of a craft fairs I did)
a Dora blanket
a Black Apple style doll
The blankets are my favorite lazy girl blankets. A piece a fleece and a piece of cotton, sewn together, I use a bowl to make the corners round, inside outted and top stitched with a wavy stitch.
The dolls I made last minute, because I got sucked into all the pretty blogs I had discovered, with Emily from the Black Apple’s pattern from when she was on Martha.
When Tira opened her presents she yelled “I love it” and when I picked out the fabric for the blankets we weren’t sure that Lanna was really a Dora fan, but she’s been singing (in her year and a half year old voice) Da da da da da dora from the Dora theme song so I think I made a good choice. Plus she immediately put on her jewels and hugged her “baby”.
