Meet Derek

Well this year instead of tucking candy inside of it I have put together special activities for the girlies.

On Sunday we went and got our tree and today we made Derek, the indoor snowman. 
(S named him, not sure why that name but that's what it is)


He was super easy and cheap to make.
I just went and bought a plain white pillow (around $3-$4) and tied string around it to make a neck as well as sewed the four corners in to make it more rounded. The girls picked buttons for the face and chest as well as the scarf and hat. 
It was actually quite fun! The girls played around me as I quickly sewed on the buttons. They love the finished product and couldn't wait to show hubby when he came home.

 I'm definitely looking forward to the fun stuff I've planned for the other 22 days! 
Kind of gives me a reason to post this month as I've been busy busy making gifts that I won't be able to share until after Christmas. And believe me there will be a lot to share...I've been really trying to stick to the 100% home made Christmas this year.

Happy Monday!
