Here is one thing I bought Aunt Helen

I bought these frames and mats yesterday for the girls' pictures. Erin came in the fall to take a family picture for me to put on my Christmas card. It was after church and Sigrid was hungry and tired. Astrid had basketball practice in an hour. Erin had worked and not been asleep and I am sure Clayton wanted his momma. Anyway, in the span of about 10 minutes Erin took 46 of the best pictures of us. These were three of my favorites of the girls. The style now is black an white so these individuals I did that way. I also did a family one, and one of just the three girls but I did them in color.
Now Aunt Helen with the rest of the money I am going to buy material and redo my dining room chairs. Who knew three little girls could be so messy when they eat. I will post a picture of those soon for you but I have to find the material first and at the right price.

Here are the cookies the girls made for Santa, themselves and for Pop. Astrid is not in the pictures she had to run off to Pops as soon as she was finished. They are working on puzzles. As I was taking the picture Sigrid spilled her plate and broke all her cookies. She cried for a minute and then was off laughing and playing....sorrows forgotten. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas. We love each of you.
