Starting on the Christmas prep already!!

Today, I did my first Christmas craft of the year- a needle felted nativity circle!

I am really new to needle felting.  This is the first circle picture I've done, and I think my skills could use some improvement.  Overall though, I'm happy with the outcome for a first try!

My sunshine's turn for an update!
Recent big steps for Jubilee:
 Jubilee loves going to the pool, and last time we went, she made her first real efforts at learning how to swim.  She swam to me with her water wings on almost 2 meters!  Woo hoo!  We are so proud of her (She had been really afraid to try it, but she did it anyway!)
Another big fear for Jubilee is new people, especially crowds of new people.  But, she played on a playground full of kids and even played with some of the others!  Way to go sunshine!
 Jubilee's favorite toy is Raggedy Ann, and she comes with us nearly everywhere.  Well this little one also really liked her.  Jubilee reluctantly shared, but was quite happy when the share session was done! Haha!

I think you need an update on this splendid little girly!
Things Hope can do: climb, run, spin around and fall down, point to most of her body parts if you ask her about them, say so many words, and make her Mommy laugh everyday!
Hope's favorites:
Playing with water - puddles, a cup of water, the bathtub, a pool, the ocean, or a little tap outside that she discovered she can turn on- she not particular as long as it is wet
Copying Jubilee 
Hiding in the curtains
Playing with a baby doll
Yogurt (I think she would prefer it if her diet were made entirely of yogurt!)
