And Kims blog has finally caused me to pull this beat up old doll house down from the top shelf in my craft room... no plans for today.. not going anywhere... so... I'm thinking, maybe its time for a little christmas makeover here!   well, thats the plan... we'll see how far I get with it! lol!

And, In other news, yesterday was marla pies first birthday.  i babysat for her last night while her mommy and daddy were working so gammie made some brownies and invited torry and her aunties over to sing happy birthday!.  she really liked our singing.. (most of the family doesnt want to hear us sing! lol)
happy birthday Marla pie!
Torry was happy to wish his sweet cousin, "marna" thats what he calls her, a happy birthday too.
happy birthday Marla pie!torry sings happy birthday
so.. cinnamon rolls in the oven.. now going to do a very quick clean up around the house, make the bed and some little odds and ends.. then... on to the doll house... 
wish me luck!
happy snow day!
ooohh! one more thing...   I LOVED the movie, life of PI.  the kids I took thought it was lame in the beginning.. but believe me, it had their attention through the whole thing.  Im going to buy a copy when it comes out.
OK.. off I go!  toodles little bloggy friends!

Lasagna sounds good for dinner tonight! I need to get me a little dollhouse to decorate to. The girls look like she had a wonderful birthday and what is a birthday without singing!
Have a Happy New Year!

My what big icicles! It is the sort of weather that you just want to stay inside and craft! What a special birthday! Enjoy the rest of the holidays!

Brrrrrr.....It looks downright chilly out there! I, too, love the snow and the feeling of snuggling up at home in my nest. BUT, it really is inconvenient when you have things you have to do!

Your little grandbabies are so precious! It's been fun over the Birthday little Marly!

Tomorrow I fly down to sunny San Diego for the birth of my grandbaby. I'm so excited!

Have a fun fun time redoing your doll house. I just know it's going to be in the Parade of Homes for 2013!
Big hugs across the miles,
Carolynn xoxo
