merry merry!

I just spent the last two hours or so building this.

How fun is that? It also opens up.

Really, it was Stefan’s Christmas present. Really.

Speaking of Stefan, here are he and Niels “modeling” their PJ pants. They are understandably distracted by their toys. Cute pants, though, huh? I just bought the T-shirts at Target to go with.

I also made them a pair of the felt bird ornaments, by request. Niels got the green with the red wing and Stefan red with green. Stefan said, “THANKS!” when I gave it to him. So, yay.

more tiny birds

Last but not least is the gingerbread house that Erik helped them build. I buy the same kit from Trader Joe’s every year with the sugar people. The kids haven’t gotten bored of it yet.

I will have more finished objects ready for the world to see after we visit my parents and aunt today. I hope you’re enjoying your Christmas and/or final Saturday of 2010!

some christmas crafts

Here is one of the Christmas crafts I couldn’t show you before: some tiny felt birds.

And here they are in my hand to show how tiny they are.

I made them for Niels’ teacher. I hope she likes them. Niels and Stefan have each requested one for Christmas too. Now I need to remember who wanted green with red wings and vice-versa. Uh oh.
