Dear Santa

It's time to mail out our Christmas lists to Santa Clause!
I asked the girls to make out lists so we could place them in the mail box, like we do every year (how else is Santa supposed to know what you want;))

Mia didn't need to make out a list. She wants 2 things: an iPod and a puppy. Olivia on the other hand, spent hours crafting her list of 21 things she really really wants.

I had to laugh when she handed it to me in a sealed envelope, addressed to Santa himself - with a stamp and this little note on the back:

Yes she is!!

Anniversary ~ Wood Stained Art

Yesterday was Rich and my (my or I?) 10 year anniversary.

We will be celebrating it this weekend but I did give him his gift. I saw a post on wood stained art over at Me Oh My and knew I wanted to try it.

It is literally 3 steps.....

1. Get your wood:


2. Stain the wood in the stain of your choice:

3. Hand write your words. It can be a poem, a quote..... anything! In my case, I wrote out the lyrics to one of the verses of our wedding song:

Rich loved it and I can't wait to get it hung on the wall.
