nice fat little tree

We got a tree from dick and junes because it was freezing cold out on Saturday. We were tough and we tried cut your own but the farm was on a windy hillside and I still have no mittens (mittens please santa Bill!) and the only trees they had were tiny tiny trees for 60$! We didn't think the old timey experience was quite worth 60 bucks. So we spent half the price for our charming tree.
We get to use the stockings we made last year when we were waiting for Lincoln Bear. We hung them around our nice warm fire and decorated the tree.
Great auntie and grammy came over for some hot chocolate and gave us a red and white tweed fern animal for our christmas tree. It looks really good with the stuffed village Bill and I made yesterday. I can't wait to make some ornaments. We bought some martha stewart brand bakers twine at micheals to hang our gingerbread men. It is just so pretty and completely worth the money.

bazaar bizarre, holiday pictures, and creatures for sale

The craft fair is over. It was nice to see our friends and the overwhelming amount of cool stuff people are making. Bill and I stood nervously at our table in the freezing cold for many hours. I bought some gifts for my friends Rhea and Peter's baby that is due in March and traded a doll for a beautiful scarf handmade by my friend Sara. Now we have christmas and Bill's birthday to look forward to. I want to make ginger bread for my family and some little ornaments and a christmas village. I took photographs of Lincoln with the intention of getting a holday cards printed but we decided it's not number one or two on our december priority list. Saturday we are picking out trees with grammy (one for grammy and one for us). Then we are heading home to set it up and drink some hot chocolate and listen to some festive music (the yummy cakes christmas).

In other blueberry pancake news, The Green Egg Shop in Manchester, Ma bought some of my stuffed creatures to sell! It is a beautiful modern warm feeling shop with lots of great things for little ones. The owner Tracey makes hand embroidered onesies!!
