What I Wore Wednesday - Christmas Pictures

What a week it's been, there was some sickness in the house Tutu and I caught a stomach bug, we decorated the house for Christmas and took our family pictures.  After months of repression I have started working on my grief. You can read about my progression here and here.

My children have all gotten to love the self-timer on my camera.  As soon as they hear the beeping they run to join me in the picture.   My cousin was over to take our Christmas pictures on Saturday but the better pictures turned out to be the ones I used the self-timer for because they all found it more fun to press the button and run into position for the picture.
As the previous weeks I'm linking up with The Pleated Poppy and Mama Go Round.

 And this is what I look like after work, I take my pictures and run to change into my comfy clothes.

I've also been busy working up some crafts. I made a few cowls for Tutu and Muffin (still need to start Monkey's), I finished my throw for watching tv (well i finished it earlier but I had to fix it because Muffin got to it with scissors), and on Saturday the girls and I made cupcakes. We were trying out a new red velvet cake mix from PC, to see if they were any good. We have a winner that we will use for Monkey's birthday party.

My throw, the pink ruffle is where I had to fix it because Muffin cut my thread.

And our cupcakes, not sure which way I'm going to decorate the flowery one or the ruffle one.  I still have a another week and a half to decide.

As the Holidays approach more craziness will be upon us.  I hope I can make it.
