HOME MADE GARLAND
IN THE BOX-
MADE BY MY MOTHER......


MY MOM AND DAD DO SOMETHING "HOME MADE OR HAND MADE" AT CHRISTMAS EACH YEAR AND IT IS MY SISTERS-SILS AND MY FAVORITE GIFT. I ALWAYS SEEM TO ASK MOM LIKE ABOUT IN SEPTEMBER TO KINDA REMINDER HER! HA "MOM WHATCHA WORKIN ON FOR US THIS YEAR" HA SHE IS SOOOO TALENTED AND DOES AWESOME THINGS - I NEED TO JUST POST WHAT HER AND MY DAD HAVE DONE FOR THE LAST UM 12 ISH MAYBE YEARS.....SOME YEARS BOTH DO SOMETHING - SOME YEARS ARE BIGGER THAN OTHERS.....SOME THEY DO TOGETHER AND SOME THEY DONT.......WE DONT CARE- WE LOVE THEM ALL!!!
{ONCE AGAIN MY CAMERA DOES NOT DO IT JUSTICE......JASON!!!!} LOL

LOVE THE RUSTY STAR IN THE MIDDLE.

OK so like I said earlier-They have been doing this for about 12 or so years- well every year I seem to either figure it out - find it - or see it before Christmas Eve. NO LIE!! I dont go peaking around for it either Jason-- ha- I just always seem to run into it!!!! {he thinks I do} ANYWAYS...this particular year - last year-I went to my parents house like 2 days before Christmas Eve...My mom always waits till like the last day possible to put her "new stuff or new ideas" out so when we all come Christmas Eve it is NEW to us. Well I happen to be there like 2 days before and this garland was hanging above her china cabinet and I was like oh mom! I LOVE IT-- where did you get it? She said I made it!! I said oh man- can you show me how to make it? She said it is kinda hard-you have to drill holes into each piece yada yada yada...and then it hit me like a TON OF BRICKS! This is IT! WE ARE GETTING THIS THIS YEAR!!! See what I mean!!! Ok so once again- Amy is not Surprised - but the other 3 are!! Amy -EXCITED yes- SURPRISED no!! ha Wonder what she is making this year!!!!! haha
