Happy 2012!

We had a very low key

New Years

we stayed home 
invited are parents over to ring in the new year.
We had dinner and played apples to apples 
I was the apples to apples champ for the night
our new years photo not the best picture but it works
 Grandma and Grandpa Staehely

Khloe pulled out her chairs and wanted grandpa to sit and do this and that you name it Grandpa would do anything that Khloe asks him.

 This is my Favorite picture and boo it wont come out straight so side ways will have to work

Khloe was a trooper and managed to stay awake through a game of apples to apples

 Grandma Kicking off the New Year

 Grandma and Khloe passed out hats blowers and fun necklices

Khloe had a blast dressing up with all the fun stuff 
she could not figure out how to make the blowers make noise so it was funny watching her

She kept taking them over for grandpa to blow on

Grandpa being silly 

 Hope you all had a wonderful new year.

This little girl made it all the way till the ball dropped 
then was ready for bed

What did you do for New Years?

Tuesday Beauty product must haves

This is a first 

 I am so excited to share with you my beauty tips and tricks  
Every Tuesday 
I'll be posting something about beauty

Daily I use a facial Hydra Cleanse from pharmagel Pharmagel Hydra Cleanse Extra Gentle

followed by a toner Alpha Ceuticals Toner from Beauty for all seasons
Then I use Pharmagel Glyco-8 a facial firming cream I have also used the DN24 Hydracreme

 twice a week
I do a deep clean your skin will feel and look just like you got a facial but with out the price
A friend that does my eyebrows told me this trick and I love it

you will need 
Up & up facial buff sponges or what ever brand but they are 12 for $1.50 cant beat that
Facial scrub you can use what you have but I really like the Target Up&UP brand blackhead facial scrub with salicylic acid. it work great.

Cut a sponge in half get it damp and lather up your sponge with lots of scrub and work in a circle circular motion while moving around your face keep adding scrub to your sponge it will take a lot then rinse your face off with a warm wash cloth and apply toner to close up all those pores then apply a moisturizer. There you have it at home facial.

This weeks beauty product wish list

Christmas Eve Toddler Craft Projects

Tomorrow I'm planning on doing a bunch of Christmas Crafts
This is just a few of my ideas

tissue paper on foil with sequins
Hand print Santa
Salt Dough
Hand print ordainment

1 cup flour 2 cups salt 1 cup water red food coloring
Combine flour and salt and slowly add the water. You may not need all of the water. I then separated the dough into two equal parts and colored one part with red food coloring. Make desired ornament & microwave in 30 second intervals for a total of 2-3 minutes. One of our buttons melted & ours didn't need 2-3 minutes so be careful & try 30 seconds at a time. I like that you don't have to wait days for them to dry out.
Snow Globe

Shaving Cream Christmas Tree

Cotton ball candy cane

Puff up paint

Ball paint Candy cane


Hand print tree

Pine cone with Lights

Thumb print candy cane

Family Rain deer Thumb print

So there you have it.. I can't wait to show you what we have already done.
Merry Christmas Eve Everyone.

The Man In the Red Sute

Last year Khloe wanted nothing to do with Santa but this year she thinks is awesome 
When ever we say anything about santa she says See him

 We believe in Santa but our main focus at our house is Jesus
Last weekend a church around us had a live nativity seen that I took her too she stood there for 45min  in shock ever since then she has been singing happy birthday Jesus and asking to go back to the tivity.
