The months of January, February, and March are so crazy in our family with birthdays.  Over half of our family's birthdays occur in the first 2 1/2 months of the year.  It makes for a bit of craziness!  We celebrated Mom's birthday first on January 16th.  Kinley loves to help everyone blow out their candles.
Happy Birthday, Nea!  We won't say how old she is:)
Kinley doesn't care too much about cake but she does love ice cream!
Next, we celebrated Jake's birthday on January 22nd.
Happy Birthday, Daddy!  Kinley was so proud that she picked out the decorations for his cake and put them on his cake by herself!
Next up, my birthday and Kinley's birthday!

Christmas time

Shea and I have been busy at work on some outfits for Kinley and others and some gifts for friends and family.  Today I was finishing up some hoodies for 3 little girls who we miss seeing as often as we'd like, Avery, Ali-Grace and Anna Camille.  I hope they like them as much as I do.  I wouldn't mind having one myself!

I kept remembering as I was sewing this one, when this little one was asked her name she would always say it was "Ali hyphen Grace".  I can never see her name without her sweet face popping into my head.

Avery is growing up now and I tried not to make her hoodie look too much like a little girl.  It's hard to believe that she is 11 years old now!

Fleeman girls we still love you!

Kinley had several outfits for Christmas this year.  After all, she is my best advertisement! :)

I still love to smock and Shea really likes the bishop dress so that's what Kinley's Christmas dress is this year.  I love the new look of smocking on a print and really love this Michael Miller fabric that I got at City Craft.  Kinley is very busy and it's difficult to get her still for pictures but she looks cute anyway.

Can't you just see the mischief in her eyes?

I love this one too!

Shea caught this cute shot of her with our tree in her bubble skirt and matching shirt outfit. 

She has several shirts that match these sweet little single rufflle pants so she wears something Christmassy almost every day!

Shea made this cute outfit.  It's reversible and has a more Christmassy applique on the other side.  It looked really cute in her Santa pictures!

See what I mean! 

I've made quite a few of these Christmas nightgowns and of course, Kinley has one too!  It has always been my tradition to give each of my children and now grandchild new Christmas P.J.'s that they get to open on Christmas Eve.  That way, Christmas morning pictures are always very cute!

This picture expresses my feelings right now!  I am so thankful that all our family is going to be together on Christmas this year.  God has blessed me with a wonderful family! 

Merry Christmas!  May God bless each of you!
