I decided that Reese's dolls needed some new clothes. Some of the dresses coordinate with dresses I have made Reese. The others are just because. Don't they look so cute sitting there together :)
Of course, I couldn't just make one dress per doll.....
I also decided that each doll need a new diaper. I used a great tutorial from Lindsey over at The Cottage Mama. She is such a sweet person and another blogger I hope to have the privilege of meeting one day. I know that Reese and her daughter, Savannah, would get along so well! I also love all of her fun and timeless designs and her use of trims (especially piping)! Here is the tutorial I used. I am also hoping to try out her camera strap tutorial after the new year!
I just want to squeeze them :) Of course each doll needs more then one diaper!!!
I love that Reese will have a few new, home-made things to play with....even better, they were free since everything I used was from my scraps and sewing desk!!!
AND....a little sneak peak at the project that Maga asked me to make for Reese. I will have to wait and take picture after Christmas since I didn't have the entire gift here at my house. I can't wait to see what Reese thinks when she opens this gift :)
I am so relieved that I finished Reese's last princess upcycle dress this morning. I hurried up and wrapped them while she was napping and forgot to take any pictures. I love how they turned out!!! I will post pictures of them as well after Christmas!
Now to go relax and enjoy the last little bit of this Christmas season!!!
We have been busy busy here at our house....well, I have been really busy! But, we have managed to have some fun during this busy season. We had so much fun getting together with some of my mom's family for a nice, casual Christmas get together. It was nothing fancy, but was so nice to relax, talk and especially to laugh with everyone!!! Here is Reese modeling the Christmas out fit I made for her.
And of course, we can't have a Christmas party without Santa. We are so lucky to have a Santa in our family...Uncle Darrell!!!

My how I hope this phase goes by quickly. Here is a family, fall shoot that my bro-in-law, Tyler, did for us. We were able to get a few good shots but most of the shots contain Reese with the oh so famous expression. Here are a few of my favorites from the shoot.

I usually try to make Reese's costumes and special outfits, but I decided to buy her costume this year. I am so glad I stumbled on this costume! I LOVE it and think the peanut was just so "berry" cute in it :) I just want to squeeze her every time I looked at her.
The "BERRY" cute STRAWBERRY!!!
LOVE those tights!!!! and the beret!
See what I mean!!! So fun and squishy!!!
OK Mama......NO more pictures!!! I am ready to go play with all my friends!
Checking out the goods....
Look what I got!!!!
And her first choice for taste testing.....DOTS....up next....PINK nerds of course!!!
Reese and daddy heading out to find some pumpkins.
So excited to carve the pumpkin she picked out. She decided that she wanted a cat face for her pumpkin. Daddy did a fabulous job on it, but I forgot to get any pictures of the finished pumpkins :(
Can you pick whose pumpkin is whose :) I think Lee's pumpkin weighed more then Reese and my pumpkin combined!
Scooping out seeds while making sure to NOT touch any of the "guts". Her response to seeing the inside of her pumpkin...."EEWWW GROSS!!!!" Such a girly girl :)
Like I said before...she was in heaven to have both Mamaw & Maga that day.
Reese had a blast "swinging"
Best part of the day :)
I even lucked out and got a decent picture of Reese and I!
