Chris is also a great crafty person - she loves to sew. She made this beanbag chair for one of her grandsons (I think), and we put Julianna in it to test it out - what a great thing. It was then that I decided she MUST have a beanbag chair - she loved sitting in it and it was very conforming to her baby body. Why didn't I think of this sooner?! I'm going to search for a small one to fit in our teeny little house.
Stocking Stuffer - this is a cool Stuffed Lion that I found in Homegoods... they have some really unique children's items there!
Even Pepper has her own stocking ... Oops, gotta put PetSmart on the list to get her some stocking stuffers - Bully Sticks, the best for cleaning her teeth!
This was kind of cool the way it turned out - it's a picture of our wedding cake topper & our framed invitation... with the tree lights reflecting on it...
Brian and I were given our childhood ornaments by our parents, and here are a few of our favorites... (we hope to hand them all down to Julianna one day)
Don't laugh at the close-up of our plastic pine needles.
I especially like this little mouse (bear??)
I always make fun of Brian for this one - it is a weird little Santa ornament he made in kindergarten. He cherishes it. I think it's kinda creepy.
Oh and one final thing ... I ordered these interlocking play mats last night for Julianna. We have wood floors and whenever we want to play with her on the floor, we have to put down a thick blanket for cushioning. My husband and I have been talking about getting something for the floor for her to play on... so here it is. I can't wait until they are delivered and surprise my husband as well! I got the idea from Alicia over at Keeping Up with Kylie. Thanks Alicia!
