Our "tree" and Annabelle's creations

This year none of us were in the real Christmas spirit so we decided not to put up a tree or really decorate. Instead the kids decorated a door...pretty cute I think.




 
Belle has also been coloring away and using her artistic skills ALOT lately. She just amazes me, if there is something she wants and doesn't have, she sits down, draws it and cuts it out!
Here's a cookie stand she had--notice the baking sheet with cookies~


She also got tired of waiting on me to make a castle for her princess paper doll~

Here's some of her coloring~ I constantly hear "stamp me something" LOL!

 

Not too bad for a 5 year old. 
Matthew is also creative but his is in his constant thinking of new inventions. He wants to be an inventor when he grows up and wow, he has tons of ideas!
(sorry for the funky spacing, blogger is being weird)
Happy Christmas eve everyone

Awww she is ADORABLE...JUST adorable! I can't wait to put up a post for Christmas RAK from my friend :) You make me smile, Danni! And I wanted to thank you for your selfless prayers for my DH to be home in time for Christmas dinner-I know that there are many families serving this wonderful country of ours that aren't so lucky and I THANK YOU for all the sacrifices your family makes. BIG HUGS!!!!

Merry Christmas to you, Matthew and Belle! I agree that Belle takes after her mother - so talented. My prayers are with Sam and all our other military away from home.

Hugs,

Merry Christmas to you, Matthew and Belle! I'm also sending my thoughts and prayers to your awesome hubby Sam, and all the men and women in the military who cannot be at home this year for the holidays. May they all be home soon, safe and sound. Take care!

P.S.: I love that castle that Belle made ... Aloha!

Great idea to decorate the door!

Belle's coloring and creativity are outstanding for a 5 year old :) I hope she doesn't lose that as she gets older!

Amazing drawings for a 5yo. Decorated door was an inspired idea Danni
