Decorating for Christmas Part 2

Rebecca, Marie-Grace and Mia were admiring the hard work they had done decorating the tree..

 "Hey, I have the rest of the decorations!" Saige said holding a large pile of stockings,"Would you like to pick them out?"
As she said this Kirsten and Felicity wandered over
 "Sure" Everybody said while Saige handed them out
 "I can't wait to write our lists to Santa!" Marie-Grace said, dreaming..
 "Let's hang them up across the wall." Felicity said, the girls nodding in agreement

"How is this?" Felicity asked as she fiddled with her stocking, "We want to place them an equal distance apart."

 "Better" Saige said
 Mia posed as the final stocking was hung

 Marie Grace places the final pieces to the tea set

 "It's so fun standing on this chair, I can see everything from here!" Mia cries
 Marie-Grace, always practical, "Be Careful, you might fall."
Thankfully Mia has the agility of a cat and landed on her two feet safely

 Kirsten hangs the Christmas wreath and adjusts the welcome sign 

"What do you think Marie-Grace, do you think it look's nice?"

 Marie-Grace responds, "Yeah, that look's really cute, I like that you added the silent night decoration."
 Rebecca and Saige were in charge of decorating with mini fake tree's and wreaths.

 I love this picture!
 "I think we did a good job" remarked Saige, handing Rebecca the last tree

 "It look's really nice Saige!"
What do you think?

 While Rebecca and Saige finished up the last of the decorations Marie-Grace and Kirsten were discussing other Christmas preparations
 "I really think we should double the cookie batch, who knows who might come over, and of course we will need a couple more for Santa.." Marie-Grace said
 Felicity has desperately wished to braid Mia's hair, she finally gave in after Felicity promised her some leftover Halloween candy.
 "Almost done" Felicity cheerfully said as she finished off the braid.

 This was so fun to make, Merry Christmas!

Quick Craft

I wanted to post this before part 2 of Christmas decorating which should be up Thursday or Friday.  
Christmas Wreath  
I love wreaths from past photo-stories you may know that we have two "fall" wreaths but we did not have a Christmas wreath! This craft only took about 15 minutes. 
 Materials Needed

  1.  Ribbon 
  2. Scissors
  3.  Wreath base(I used an empty tape spool) 
  4. Burlap 
  5. Hot glue gun and glue 

 I really like the burlap wreaths that I have found on pinterest, the doll sized Christmas tree I bought from Michael's had a burlap covering on the bottom but since I was using fabric for a tree skirt I instead used it to make this wreath!
 Cut burlap into about 1-2 in strips
 Wrap burlap around wreath base, hot gluing ends down.
 Wrap ribbon around wreath, gluing ends down.
 I hot glued a bow (optional)
 You can customize it however you want, I added Styrofoam berries and sprigs from dollar store floral.

Thanks for looking, Merry Christmas!
