American girl christmas holiday gifts made by Molly's Pappy Barry.  An American girl parlor he copied from the AG book and also the boat with accessories.  My mom made the furry seat cover and the curtains.  My mom bought the cupcake stand as a Christmas ornament and made the cross stitch violin picture that was an ornament as well.  The others were doll accessories and the Campfire was from the Walmart AG doll collection I believe made to fit Madame Alexander dolls. 

The boat was actually partially a shelf purchased by me that my dad took and altered to create a boat well fitting to seat an American Girl with moveable sail and oars for rowing.  I had the bucket from a rak of items from and then I also added the handmade fishing pole crafted from a skewer and fishing lures, I should've taken a picture of the fish and accessories maybe I will add that again later.  I also made a handmade net out of burlap and the other half of the skewer and then I made a small lily pad from felt and cardboard and added the rubber frog.  

It was definitely one of her favorite gifts.

Elfie on the Shelf has gone....letter from Lila

December 25, 2012

    Thanks for  having fun with me Molly this Christmas season.  I know I wasn’t around a lot but I was a very tired little elf as you had me working hard at night getting ready for all your gifts, your list was very loooong., and I stayed late sometimes just so the other elves didn’t’ put me to work so I could rest more at your house, it’s cozy and warm there.   

    Santa is here with me now so I will be going home with him, but I will see you again next year and I have more tricks up my sleeve for you.  Can’t wait to be back again in 2013.  I love you my little elfie friend, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! 
                    Your ELFIE,
                        Lila Boggins

Beautiful Sandy Hook Poem from the Dr. Phil show

 This was a beautiful poem written by a woman and shared on the Dr. Phil show and it is so lovely I had to share it here with all of you.  I am not going to pretend I know how they feel, but I pray for Gods arms to wrap around them and that they may find some kind of rest in his arms and in their hearts in the following days. 

Twas' 11 days before Christmas, around 9:38
when 20 beautiful children stormed through heaven's gate.
Their smiles were contagious, their laughter filled the air.
They could hardly believe all the beauty they saw there.
They were filled with such joy, they didn't know what to say.
They remembered nothing of what had happened earlier that day.
"Where are we?" asked a little girl, as quiet as a mouse.
"This is heaven." declared a small boy. "We're spending Christmas at God's house."
When what to their wondering eyes did appear,
but Jesus, their Savior, the children gathered near.
He looked at them and smiled, and they smiled just the same.
Then He opened His arms and He called them by name.
and in that moment was joy, that only heaven can bring.
Those children all flew into the arms of their King
and as they lingered in the warmth of His embrace,
one small girl turned and looked at Jesus' face.
And as if He could read all the questions she had
He gently whispered to her, "I'll take care of mom and dad."
Then He looked down on earth, the world far below
He saw all of the hurt, the sorrow, and woe.
Then He closed His eyes and He outstretched His hand,
"Let My power and presence re-enter this land!"
"may this country be delivered from the hands of fools"
"I'm taking back my nation. I'm taking back my schools!"
Then He and the children stood up without a sound.
"Come now my children, let me show you around."
Excitement filled the space, some skipped and some ran.
all displaying enthusiasm that only a small child can.
and I heard Him proclaim as He walked out of sight,
"In the midst of this darkness, I AM STILL THE LIGHT."
