Vintage Christmas Coloring Book Printables!!!!!

This morning I finally got around to doing something I have been putting off for a couple of years now.  I copied pictures from my old Christmas coloring book!  I have wanted to do this to preserve the pictures that are left.  That way I can print them out again and again for my little ones (and so can all of you!) It is a book I have treasured since I received it as a Santa gift many years ago.  I love the fact that the pictures are all printed out in red and green ink, and I love the old style illustrations and the simple feel of the craft projects. A lot of the pages were already colored on, ripped out etc.  A lot of the activities already done by me (when I was very VERY young!) and some by my children. However I was able to salvage quite a few craft and activity pages. I started scanning them in, but it wasn't working out too well, so I decided to take pictures of the pages.  I think they turned out well and I hope you and your loved ones will enjoy them! Maybe some of you will even remember some of the images from when you were little?  If so I'd love to hear about it! Merry Christmas!

Ready for Christmas

What a nice weekend!  The littlest got to go celebrate her best friend's birthday with her at Chucky Cheese. I wasn't there, so I don't have any pictures, but she came home all smiles and told me what an amazing time she had! Then yesterday, we had a surprise 2nd Thanksgiving, so that was awesome! We also got ready for the winter.  I set out all the baskets of hats, scarves, and mittens.  I especially love the homemade ones from my childhood that my girls use to this day. We set up and decorated the Christmas tree and it looks so beautiful in our little living room. We'll probably put some more decorations out today, maybe mix up some home made hot cocoa and cappuccino mixes, and read some Christmas stories. The girls also got into their advent calendar today (thanks Rachel!)  and decided they will split each piece of chocolate everyday instead of taking turns. We have all had such a lovely time this week, snuggling and spending time together. I'm really going to miss the girls when they have to go back to school tomorrow.
