We've been keeping busy here at the Roberts household! I like to keep myself distracted so I don't think about how soon it is til the babies come and also so I don't think about how far away it is :)
Daci and Eleni had fun fingerpainting for the first time:
We had our Ward Christmas Party last weekend. It was so fun for me to get out and see everyone!
|How cute is she anyway?|
I started the 12 Days of Christmas for Rick. I wanted him to have a special Christmas since he has been doing so much for me lately. Our van was pretty much our gift to each other this year so I thought I would do little, inexpensive but meaningful things for him each day. One morning I woke up at 5am and made him breakfast for work. This is a huge thing for me. I'm sorry, but getting up in the morning to do breakfast is just not my thing. But, I know that he absolutely loves a good breakfast, so I did it for him :) I made him stuffed strawberry and cream cheese french toast. He loved it!
I also have been doing a bunch of papercrafting for gifts. I made 60 cards in one day. 20 of 3 different designs. It took me quite a while but I am happy with how they turned out!
I love this birthday card I made. Sadly, the picture doesn't do it justice. The colors are all really pretty together. Close To My Heart teamed up with Cricut and made an awesome cartridge! Both the cupcake and the roses are cut from the Cricut, then I embossed, glittered, and bejeweled the cupcake and rolled the flowers. I love that even though they all cut out identical, they all look different once you roll them,
I also made this "4You" card
And this "Thank you" card
We also have been working on this dresser for the babies' room. I found this on the side of the road on trash day and swiped it :) It was pretty sad looking when I found it. It had never been sanded and was spray painted white. It was also missing the two top side by side drawers. We sanded and painted the whole thing and Rick turned the missing spot into a shelf. I found these cute baskets and knobs. I absolutely love the finished product! What do you think? Sidenote: Hobby Lobby only had 7 ceramic knobs. I ordered another one and it should be here next week :)
