Reindeer Games

 Today was one of those days where the outfit looked better on paper and in my mind than in reality!

The inspiration was very new from the most recent December (2011) issue of Lucky  magazine:
I actually 2 other outfits on this page that I will re-create...
 I like the top portion of the outfit. Allowed me to use this super old floral thermal top I have owned for years. It is so soft and comfy. I have always worn it with seats and leggings as lounge wear so it was nice to wear it dressy.
 And getting wear my new shearling bomber vest! Such good quality all around. It even feels like real leather and the fit is great. 
I added the earrings I got a few thread shows back. They are made out of recycled old records!
 These are also new. Since the pair I wanted from piperlime had sold out I decided to go the cheaper route to obtain what I call a 'heeled hiker' boot. I am just not sure about my Dennison to add teal socks. I really wanted a chunky sock look but didn't have any pair of socks that worked with that!
 I had truly adored the polka dot cream tights from JCrew last year. So this year I got these as a gift from sister from Romwe. They are not exactly polka dots but pretty close.

Had a fun day. At preschool a group of mommies were assigned to assemble the gingerbread houses. The kids will get to decorate these next wednesday in class. We were constantly surrounded by little pairs of eyes who were quitely begging for graham cracker scraps and frosting!
In the afternoon went to my Dad's house to decorate his tree. The kids got a hold of this old tinsel decoration and created a big mess but they sure had fun jumping on my dad's bed and singing from the top of their lungs with their uncle and auntie!

 They sure are not perfect but the kids won't care, especially when they get to cover it with more frosting and candy!

And here are some fun photos from tonight at my Dad's House:

This is an ornament I made from cross stitch back in 1993!

My kids have stockings in both my mom and my dad's house!

Then the jumping and singing on the bed activity begins!

My crazy children!

My daughter with my SIL. She could be hers!

My cutie pie Nephew!
