Super Hero Christmas Eve

You may wonder why I decided to have a Super Hero Christmas Eve party.  You may remember that I have 11 grandsons(whoa, you say, what?) and anything super hero is great!  So this year's Christmas eve was themed around Super heroes! I started off by making this banner, I made it out of colored foam and found all of the super hero images on Google.  I printed them off and found it was easier to just sew them on with my sewing machine.

You could use glue but it seemed to stay down better with sewing.

Tried to think of all of these boys, super heroes.

I knew that this one is a favorite.

To tie this theme into the spirit of Christmas eve I wanted them to know that the biggest super hero in my life is this Man, we are celebrating His birth on this special night.

Of course, there is never a better hero!

As far as I am concerned he is one SUPER MAN.

Do you want to come to my Super Hero party?

I then thought about all of the super hero masks that we have and found some embroidery patterns that I was able to make in the hoop.

I did have to have one princess hero, because there would be one princess hero at our party.

Spider Man.

This is the one Trevor chose.

Off again,

on again.

This little boy did not want grandma to see him with his mask on.

Of course all of the food for the night had to be themed as well.  Everyone was given an assignment, this was our Super Man dip, Super Man DIP, (do you get it?)

More of my Super Heroes.

Really the picture did not hurt!

We had Iron Man Ham, Incredible Hulk salad, Thing stuffing, Spiderman potatoes, Thor Rolls, Relish like Batman,  Super Man Dip and Captain America dessert.

It was a Super Hero dinner!

Then we made some Super Hero's for all to take home. ( We made a nativity set for each family.)
We had a super hero piñata, and of course ended the night with all of my super hero's  re-enacting the nativity.

Our Super hero princess did not want to take off her mask to be Mary. It was a great night to celebrate Super Heroes and we were all rewarded celebrating our biggest Super Hero and to Him, I am eternally grateful.
Merry Christmas!

Are you ready?

Today I realized there was just 3 weeks to Christmas! AGHHHHH! Yes, it always comes fast once December comes.  I have been working on some more patterns and I have to share how cute these are.  As you probably already know, I am kind of obsessed with monsters and I had to make some more cyclops monster slippers. These were pretty fun and when I got through I kind of had to smile or almost giggle out loud.

They almost come to life, and I am sure when they are on moving feet they will look alive !

Can't you just hear these two talking to each other, " So Joe, what you been up to lately?"

"Not much George, just looking around!" :)

"What you staring at?"

"Okay. I'll stop looking at you!"

"Can I just get a little Peek?"
Alright, I'll stop, but can't you just hear them! They were so fun and if I was really ambitious I would make a pair for everyone of my grandkids, but that would be 14! and there is only 3 weeks left! Might have to do that next year.

I did get some decorating finished.  Want to take a look?
Here is my mantel and I even incorporated, Mr. Jones' favorite things, deer antlers!

I went up to the barn found a pair that I liked and spray painted them a creme color, it just made them look better!

Here are some felted ornaments on the tree in the Dining Room.

I then added some feather trees with some silver bling and the Nativity to my dining table.

Here are the felted trees.

Sorry, I must have been moving on this one.

Kind of like the white and silver with a "pop" of red.

I have finished the rest of the house, but I haven't taken pictures yet, so you will have to come back later and take a look. Only 3 more weeks!!!!

Boot cuffs

I have seen these around and thought maybe I would try some.  They looked cute in the magazine I saw them in and thought they shouldn't be too hard to make. They turned out okay but I think that I will make them a little larger so they aren't quite so tight.  I have to remember they will usually be worn with pants and therefore need to be a bit larger!

They look cute with boots though and give the illusion of a big thick sock.

Yes, we had snow when these pictures were taken.

now it is all gone, but the snow gives it a good effect.

I think I will make some more because they are quite easy and the results are cute!

My model pose.
Have a great week!
