Ok, so it's actually been looking like Christmas since September if you've visited a Hobby Lobby or Wal-Mart. I really don't like to get started too early but I wanted to get some things posted in time for Christmas orders. I love this time of year and so far this is one of my favorite pics. This was taken at Carlton's with Santa (aka- Mr. Delbert). He is my second favorite Santa Claus ever. Poppy will always be my favorite, and the best, because he really was such a Santa at heart.
Last month I turned...30! Don't worry, no emotional breakdowns in the near future. I was actually really excited. Josh threw me an awesome surprise party and I was also given a wonderful new sewing machine. I can now monogram and do custom appliques. The new machine will actually allow me to program an applique and let the machine do all the work. I may do that in the future, but for right now, I enjoy designing and cutting my own appliques. I am still learning the monogramming part. There are several fun fonts that I still need to put on my machine. It's a process and I am doing my best to learn how to do everythin the right way so that I can provide people with a quality product. As always, everything is handmade and custom. I can work with you if you have a design in mind or we can start from scratch to come up with something completely unique to your child.
Please don't think I've forgotten about Thanksgiving! I have so much to be thankful for, it would be awful of me not to mention the many blessings bestowed upon me daily. God has been so faithful to me and has supplied me with a life that is far beyond anything I could have hoped for. I thank God for all of those blessings and it is my wish that all of you have a very happy Thanksgiving, followed by a wonderful Christmas!

We were also honored and blessed to be named the godparents of Miss Emily Jane Long. She was born January 24, 2009 to Jeremy and Michelle. She is absolutely precious and adored by many. April, Allison, Mama, and I hosted a Sip and See in their honor in March. She was so well-behaved. She didn't mind being passed around and the ride to and from B'ham didn't seem to bother her either. What a doll!

We are now preparing for our trip to Walt Disney World! It is my absolute most favorite place on Earth. I have now spread my love/obsession for Disney to Josh. Patti (Granna) and Bonnie (Baba) will both be going with us again. We are so blessed to have moms that would willingly go to WDW with us and our threee kids for a week. Posted are some pics from previous trips to Disney. This year we will be celebrating Sophie's 4th birthday while we are there. She has no idea that she's having her birthday while we are on vacation. She'll be getting a princess makeover at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and then having brunch at Cinderella's castle. I am so excited!!! For her, I'm so excited for her.
