Emme Claire's 1st Christmas!

It's been a while since my last post. I've been so busy with sewing up Christmas orders and also selling Scentsy products. The Scentsy stuff really did well this Christmas! I've sold a ton of it since starting it back in the first part of November. I'm taking a break for a few weeks from sewing but not from Scentsy. I'll be sewing up some Valentine's outfits soon though. We were also busy with a lot of Christmas parties and such this month. It has been a fun but busy month. I'm looking forward to the new year! We are leaving tomorrow and will be ringing in the new year with friends in The Woodlands, TX.
Emme Claire was 8 months old on December 23rd. She is growing and changing so fast. I can't believe we are only 4 month away from her 1st birthday!
I have a ton of pictures to put on here so I'm going to get right to it! This is just a start, it takes a long time for the pics to load so I'll have to load some more later. Keep checking back for more Christmas pics.

Emme Claire excited on Christmas morning!

Nonna got a new Emme Claire purse for Christmas!! I used her favorite picture of Emme Claire and had this purse made. Picture was taken by Karie Potts of K and K Photography.

I love my new diamond ring! It's Emme Claire's birthstone.

My new Christmas wreath. It was so pretty I decided not to leave it on the door and brought it inside instead.

I made this message board to put my Christmas cards on.

It filled up quick!

Stocking hung from the chimney with care!

Thanksgiving 2009

Sorry I haven't posted in quite a while. We went out of town for over a week and just got back last night. We went to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg and then we went to Tullahoma, TN to spend Thanksgiving with Brian's Aunt Ann and Uncle Sonny and their son Eric and his family. We had a great vacation and really enjoyed getting to visit with family.

While we were gone we got Emme Claire's first Santa Claus picture taken and I think it turned out really cute!

You can view my vacation photo album by going to this link. It is too many pictures for me to post them on here.

Here are a few of my favorites from our trip!

It's been a while!!!

I've been so busy lately with my sewing and tutu business that I haven't had much time for posting on the blog. I've had a ton of Christmas orders come in. Plus I started selling Scentsy and so I've been busy with that too. I'm gonna try to catch up on a lot of pics that have been building up in my computer and put them in this post so it's gonna be a long one. Long with pictures! :)

Before we get to my pics I want to tell y'all how to go see Emme Claire's 6 month pics that Mary Dawson took a few weeks ago. Go to after you enter the site you will click on Proofing and then scroll down until you see the name Emme Claire, click on her name and it will prompt you to enter your email address and your name... then you can see the pics. My favorite from this session is image #0039, she has the sweetest smile in this pic! Makes my heart melt!!!

We just had EC's 6 month pics taken by Baby Blues as well (yes, we have her in 2 baby picture programs) and they are online for one week. They are sooooo cute!!! She is a flower pot baby in some of the pics! And she is wearing a big pink tutu with a pearl necklace in some. Oh and I brought her blue plaid dress and hat and it was perfect, the blue dress made her eyes stand out so much. The ones I like the most are 1803, 1850 and 1876. To view these pics go to and then click on Client Gallery scroll down and click on Emme Claire. The login and password are both Amy (capitol A). If you click on the first small picture it will become larger and then you can just hit your arrow key to scroll through the rest of the pics and you will be able to see them better.

Emme Claire and Nonna

Playing with her talking bear. It tells nursery rhymes and it moves, she loves that bear!

My friend Sarah makes frames for me. The white frame is one that she made for a pink collage picture that was taken by Baby Blues Photography. I think that both the picture and the frame look fantastic in EC's room.

Here EC is thinking "Oh my! Look at all that new stuff I can grab and put in my mouth!!" haha!

Tasty Toes!!!

She fell asleep in her crib after playing with her toys so long that she just gave out.

Emme Claire modeling some flannel pajama pants that I made for her. Isn't she such a good model? And look at her standing there by herself... Daddy was standing in the background waiting to catch her if she tipped over.
