Christas Crafts

I just couldn't get it together in time to participate in the home tours, so I thought I would post a couple of my crafts!

This is a cute little snowman that my parents made me out of a gourd. I love him!

This is subway art that I framed. It's not that close of a picture though. I can't remember which blog I got it from though. I thought it was a great idea and has inspired many more!

These are my sad and crooked Santa hats! Found the idea for these here, hers look sooo much better than mine though.

They were really fun to make. I may try to get better and make some for gifts next year.

I'm so far behind on wrapping, I better go get busy!

Happy Birthday Daddy

Today we celebrated my dad's 66th birthday! I bought him a Red Ryder BB gun. I hope he doesn't shoot his eye out!

And of course a bottle of his favorite wine.

I put lots of candles on the cake, secretly hoping to cover up how ugly it was. I was busy doing several things at once when I was baking it and it burned a little. Oops!

Hunter really wanted to light the candles but he couldn't strike a match to save his life. I think it was partly the old match box and partly him. I told him that maybe I should have reconsidered and put him in scouts after all. He told me he would have ended up with a lot more problems than not being able to light a match. Ha! He always has a funny comment up his sleeve.

The cake looks like a hamburger! I really need to sign up for those decorating classes at Michaels.
