A very Merry Christmas

We had a very merry relaxing Christmas! Friends and Family were all too generous. We missed being with family, but it was fun to do our very own Christmas as a family. We homemade cinnamon rolls on Christmas Eve and they were ready for the oven the next morning. Here are some pictures of the day.

I made these dolls for Eliza, they are called Black Apple Dolls and you can get a free pattern and tutorial from the Martha Stewart website. They are cute and easy!

Felt Farm Playhouse

Back in November I decided I was going to make a farm playhouse for the kid's Christmas. I bought around 10 yards of felt in assorted colors and got into a 50+ hour project. I couldn't have done it without her blog and the patterns on it.There are bendy flowers you can plant, vegetables to pull, apples to pick and feed to the horse, and the Piglet puppet show theater. The whole playhouse fits over a card table and we just leave it up in Eliza's room now. It's been a fun new piece of furniture to have!
