I have been crafting a little and hope to post pictures soon!! I am going to post a pic of the stockings I made last year or maybe it was the year before?! Anyways, I looooove them, I still have to make the baby's stocking so as soon as I get it done I will take a pic and post!!
On a sadder note December 2 marks the day my Father passed away 6 years ago. It makes this time a year a little more somber at times, it's hard not to miss him at all of these special celebrations!!

My husband is starting to put Christmas lights up this week. YAY!!!
Austin is helping out at a haunted house our dear friend Jane Johnson does every year and is very excited about it.
Charity is performing in a play Oliver and is super excited about it. This has been a lot of work for me too, as I have had to sew costumes for them. She practices once a week for 3 hours and just seems to love it.
Christian is taking a stunts and combat class that he thoroughly enjoys; what boy wouldn't. He is so full of energy; he is one funny kid!
Grace is in Kindergarten this year. This is one of my favorite years to teach because I get to teach them to read. She is doing really well and knows almost all her alphabet upper and lowercase. I am soo proud of her.
Noel is as cute as can be. She is such a talker. She will talk your ear off once she gets to know you and decides that you are A OK.
Peter has decided that he is going to start walking. He took 5 steps tonight. I was very impressed and slightly anxious about all the things he is going to be getting into. I don't think any of my kiddos has walked at this early of an age.
As for me I have been being a mom, teacher, and wife. Trying to do my best to just get through day to day life. I am very blessed to have such a loving family and am grateful to my Heavenly Father for all of my blessings that are so abundantly around me.

Below is Aaron (big bro.) and Jane Johnson (close family friend).
We had some tables set up with pictures and props of things that Chris enjoyed doing.
The pallbearers from left to right are Mike Scoma (brother in law), Aaron Gaughan (big brother), Russell Lynn (brother in law), Austin Lynn (nephew), Griffin Gaughan (little brother), Derek Gaughan (little brother), Mike Husted (close friend), and Travis Hayes (close friend)
We wanted the pallbearers to wear blue. Chris had twinkling blue eyes; thus the blue shirts.

- Reusable shopping bags (I used the ones from wally world)
- fabric to cover the logo printed on them
- scraps of fabric to applique
- lite wonder under
- carabiner (little metal clip)
- 3/4"- 1" elastic
The first thing you will need to do is measure the width and height of the area you are going to cover with fabric. You will cut your fabric 1" bigger than the measurement for height and width.
Next you will want to cut out your applique. I cut out my letter on the wonder under first~just remember the design will be backwards. Then I cut it out and ironed it onto my fabric and cut out the fabric. It would be easier to just iron a chunk of wonder under to your fabric and then cut out the applique.
I then placed it on my back to make sure that it covered the logo still. (after all that is why I am putting fabric on the bag~I refuse to buy their bag and then advertise for them because they have plastered their logo on my bag)
Now you will pin the fabric down making sure not to catch the back of the bag and stitch it in place.
