Each and every time I sit down at my craft table my daughter wants to play along right with me.
The past weekend she made me this card.  I just love it!!!! 

She spelled Santa Claus, it's kinda hard to read.  She spelled Santa 'Sanda' and Claus "Klas".  Not too bad for just sounding out the words.  She just wrote over it when Daddy told her it was mis-spelled. 
Now a mommy would have left it. Am I right?!?!?
I laugh each time I look at it, his beard it purple and his face is blue.
  This is my daughter, she is always thinking outside the box!

Stitchy Bears Kids - December Challenge - Christmas
Inside Reads - Love Mom I Know You Have Been Sick Mommy.

This brought tears to my eyes.  I was really sick a few weeks ago with a sinus infection and I am still a little congested.  I am so proud of her!  She is so caring and does worry about her family.  Funny how she is only 5 1/2 years old and knows that Mommy is still a lil' sick.

Hugs to you and your family.  I hope you have a blessed Christmas holiday.

I love your sweet and sassy Christmas card Tracey!!! So fun and flirty and perfect for Santa season :) lol!!!

Your daughters card is precious!!! (and yes, mommy would have left it :D) TOOO CUTE!!! And oh so sweet! Children are amazing aren't they? So young and innocent, yet have so much love and care in their heart and pay attention to all the things around them. We really should take a step back sometimes and try to view the world through a childs eyes.

Hugs and have a very Merry and Blessed Christmas.
