Crafting fever!

I have been in a very crafty mood lately here is what I have been up to:
I made Sam another hat this one has ear flaps (a first for me) it turned out really cute a little big so hopefully it will fit him next year
 For Christmas Sam wanted a pillow pet and I couldn't justify buying a dinky  little pillow pet for $20 so I made him a nice big one that is very cute, and its a Lion which they don't sell in store! I used the blog for my inspiration she has a really good tutorial on how she made one here so if you want to make one check it out, I did change it to fit my needs.
Its a pillow
Its a pet!
It even had cute little paws
Lastly I made this cute hat, it will be to big for the baby so maybe I will save it for next year for him, Sam has way to many hats already!

Gingerbread House

We made out gingerbread house today, we all had a blast getting messy and tasting all the goodies!

 Our roof kept falling down from us putting the candy on so we decided to make a flat roof, next year I think I will make the house structure first and let it harden and then we can decorate later.

 All done, Sam is very proud of it. He put all the buttons on the snow man, the mint kisses on the roof, the coins and the pretzels!

Zoo Lights

We took a fun trip to the Zoo, we went early so we could feed the birds and see some of the animals before the lights came on.

 Watching the polar bear, he was dancing and Sam was in love!
 Eating yummy elephant ear!
 Sam's favorite part was riding the train

It was such a fun trip, I don't know why I didn't take any pictures of the lights but they were very beautiful!
