Birdhouse Greetings

My sister sent us this for her Christmas card this year. Isn't it beautiful?? It's very sparkly-with thick white glitter as well as silver glitter on the birds and brown glitter on pinecones. It's much prettier in real life.

My husband and girls made a reindeer out of wood and metal poles and wrapped lights around it. They found a red light cover in the shop too so now we have Rudolph in our yard! :) Here's a picture: (Kinda hard to see the red nose with all the colored lights in the background.)


And here's our cute little frosty by our front door:

I can't believe that your husband and kids made that reindeer -- how cool is that????!!!

I agree with Donelda the reindeer is pretty cool so is the cute snowman. Its starting to feel like Xmas only 2 weeks away :)

The card from your sister is very pretty. I love how she cut the corner off her image to stamp the sentiment there. Great idea. You have a crafty family to be able to make that terrific reindeer as well. The snowman is just adorable! I have a pretty good collection of snowmen for inside the house myself. Who doesn't like snowmen?! :) Kelly

The card is amazing, almost real! Love the reindeer - we went out and looked at the Christmas lights in our neighbourhood on Monday and it is so great to see people get into the spirit of things.
