Let's start with the crafts. On Friday, I made this gorgeous little necklace. I have been eyeballing these necklaces on Etsy for a LONG time and then I found a tutorial on how to make them on Pinterest! So, I did! And I had everything on hand but the wire...a $1.99 necklace...don't mind if I do! Plus, I have tons of wire left over for other projects, so I guess it was even less than $1.99! :)

|You can still see the pink through it, so I might recover it again. For now, I like it.|
|I'm not a huge fan of how it's all laying, so I will be putting it ABOVE the window tomorrow.|
|Cute little Christmas picture to hang for next year!|
Okay, on to other things. Makayla's birthday party! It was a blast! She had the time of her life and was SO excited that everyone came to celebrate HER! She got some awesome presents and it was an all around fun time. We'll just let the pictures do the talking.
|My gorgeous girl wearing her Tinkerbell tutu! Yes, I forgot the wings.|
|Peepin' her cupcakes. Not yet, baby girl! :)|
|YUM. With Fairy sprinkles, even!|
|Getting her loot!|
|Singing Happy Birthday! She didn't cry this year!|
|Blowing out the candles. SO big!!|
Also, just a few things I don't want to forget and I know I haven't written around this here blog.
•Makayla started writing her first name in October. Yep, before she turned 4! Her last name in December. :)
•Addison does the cutest thing when she pushes her hair out of her face. She uses the back of her hand. I'm gonna have to get it on video. It's adorable.
•Yesterday, January 10th, Addison and I were playing with this toy that we got her for Christmas where all the animals pop up when you do something like push a button or slide a thing or whatever. So, all the animals were up and I pointed to each one and said, 'Nose'. Then I pointed to hers, mine and M's noses. Then, Addi went to each little animal and said, 'No'! This is huge!! It didn't sound like no, but I don't really know how else to write it, but she was saying nose!!!!!!! :)
•Also yesterday, before I put Addi down for bedtime, I showed her how to blow kisses and she picked it up right away. And now she does it every single time!!! It's the little things.
That's it for tonight. Gotta go finish my book and maybe watch Parenthood once Adam gets home. :D
