Today is also Breanna's birthday. While I always call her Brent's niece...I can now claim her as mine since I'm finally a Smith. She was 4 when Brent and I started dating and she's turning 12 today. Wow...where does the time go?!?
Being an only child...the only grandchild in the Smith family...and having her birthday the day before Christmas, this girl is impossible to shop for! Anything I wanted to get her, she already owns. Except the Twilight book series...but her mom said she can't read those until she finishes all of her Harry Potter books she made her buy, lol.
So, I made this cute gift card holder...which is empty in the pic, but won't be--by the time she gets it. Brent was in charge of getting this gift, as I did her Christmas gift...and you can tell he slacked off and waited til the last minute.

Copic Markers, Rhinestones, and Stitching
Brent and I decided not to go down to Portland. Better to be safe at home then stuck on the side of the highway or spun out in a ditch. So, it'll be a quiet Christmas with just the 2 of us. I must say I'm so happy I'm not spending my Christmas vacation planning my wedding this year. Last December I was picking out my cake, meeting with the officiant, picking out center pieces for the dinner tables, and meeting with the DJ. It was super stressful!
The Smith's traditionally celebrate Christmas today, so I get my markers!!!! I'll be spending most of the night playing with them...and then I can sleep in for Christmas! I was looking forward to Emily dragging me out of bed at the wee hour of the morning though.
Hope you all have a safe Christmas Eve!
