November is here! segment 24, 25, 26 and 27

As today is Jacob's birthday I thought I would start with him. I am very thankful for Jacob. He most definately has a pretty big stinker streak, but he more than makes up for it in other areas. I am thankful for him sweetness and his desire to make everyone happy. I am also thankful for his sense of humor. We had an amazing day today, Daddy picked up donuts for Jacob's birthday breakfast and we got the house picked up in preparation for Christmas decorations. After everyone but me ate donuts Jacob opened his gifts from us which he was very happy with. Grandma Kay (my Dad's mom) took us all to the lapidary store and got Jacob a rock polisher, or tumbler, which I am pretty excited about. Then she took us out to eat at Home Town Buffet, one of the kids favorite places to eat that they only get to go to when Grandma takes them. Note, I more than made up for the donut I skipped having this morning!

I am thankful for the season! We got almost all of our Christmas decorations put up this evening. We listened to Christmas music and decorated. I am thankful for Christmas music and lights and just about everything having to do with Christmas.

If you are Helga or Becca, please don't read any further, the rest contains spoilers for Christmas gifts...

I am thankful for all the sewing I have been doing and I am so excited to give everyone my gifts this year.
These are Barbie clothes for my nieces, they match the dresses I made for Peyton and my nieces.
Here is another barbie dress
This is the back of one of the doll dresses that also matches, only the little girls are getting these, I ran out of fabric, sniff, sniff.
This is the front.
Here are some of them all together. I have 3 nieces and Peyton. I wish we were all going to be together for Christmas so I could get pictures of them all in their dresses!
I am thankful for my nice, comfortable warm bed too, goodnight!

You are sooooo amazing!!!! If you ever had time I would pay you to make a couple Barbie outfit for our girls. I am so tired of the unmodest, skimpy dresses they make for Barbies these days. Is it hard to make them? I have been sewing for years but have never tried it. You have done such a great job!!! Kudos to you!! I bet the girls will love them!
