Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day

Welcome everyone from the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day! I'm so excited to get to do this again. :)

I've been making lots of bows for Christmas. All of my friends really like wearing bows. And so do I! I've made a bunch for all the new baby girls. And for my friends at school.

I thought I had taken a picture of all my bows together. But I can't find it on my Dad's camera.

You can win 11 bows and a bow holder. All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me about your favorite holiday tradition. :)

Here are the 3 small bows. I really like the pink one!

These are the 6 medium sized bows. Some of these ones are made out of satin ribbon.

And the 2 large bows.

I'm so happy that you stopped by my blog. My giveaway ends on December 19th at 10pm MST. You should also go to my Nana's blog and Mrs. S's blog. They are both having giveaways too! Good luck everyone. Now I need to go explore some of the other blogs. :) C

Virgen de Guadalupe

Today is the feast day for the Virgen de Guadalupe. What a special day. Dedicated to Jesus' mom. Our mom.

I'm very excited that I get to be a part of the special mass today. I'm getting to dance. We get to use candles. And we've been practicing for weeks. It's very exciting!

I really do like my culture. Not only are we celebrating la Madre de Dios, we are celebrating all mothers. There are going to be mariachis, dancers, and matachines at mass. Very exciting. My Dad is also cooking up a big dinner. That's for after the big day. And all of our fun. :) C

I Like This

My Dad and I went shopping earlier. We went to buy some Christmas presents for our friends. And we went to Old Navy. I seen the this jacket, and I really like it.

I hope I get a jacket for Christmas. I really want a long one like this one. Or the ones that my Nana wears. I think they're so pretty. :) C

We're Home

We're home from the Mariachi Conference. It was so much fun! We got home last night. I went straight to bed. I was that tired.

But we had a fun week. My Dad taught for my Tio Joe. My Nana performed for him. Because Tio Joe didn't travel with the mariachi. It was a good thing. Since baby Graciella came while we were gone. My Dad is going to be her Godfather. And my Nana is going to be her Godmother. She is a very lucky girl! :)

My tio Juan also didn't go. Because of my friend Sarita is still in the hospital. So my Nono taught and performed for him. We're all still praying for Sarita.

At the conference I got to take both dance and music classes. I was really lucky. I had to take the dance classes. Because my dance group went to perform. But my Dad got me to take a few music classes. And that was a lot of fun. My friend Joe got to go too. I'm so glad! We live so far away. And only get to see each other for the conferences.

We got to sing and play our violins on the river. Because there is always a big concert on the river. It was so fun! I even got to sing with my Nono and Nana. On the night of the big concert, I got to dance. Marissa, Maribel, and Lauren got to dance too. We really did have a good time.

And when my tios and Nana performed, Joe and I got to sing a duet with them. That was so exciting! I really do enjoy the conferences. And I can't wait until the next one. :) C

My Christmas Wish List

Both my Dad and my Nono asked me what I wanted for Christmas. I'm not sure. I've been thinking about it for a while. But I'm really not sure.

There are somethings that I really like. But I don't know if they're too expensive to ask for. Or too late. But this is the list I came up with.

1. A Serger. My Nana has one. And I really like it. This is really all that I want. But I know that it's expensive.

2. A sewing box with sewing supplies.

3. Pretty fabric.

4. Some "I Love This Yarn."

5. A ring or headband from Much Love Illy.

6. Anything from Love Stitched.

7. Colorful tights.

8. A long coat like my Nana's. The one with the ruffles.

9. A wooden shoulder rest for my violin. :)

10. The movie Little Dorrit. I watched it with my Nana. And I really liked it.

11. More ribbon. I like making bows.

12. A pretty scarf with a fun pin.

That's my wish list. But I really just want a Serger. If I can't have that, I'd really like a wooden shoulder rest. I know that Christmas is more about giving that receiving. I'd rather be able to donate some money or toys to kids that wouldn't get anything. :)C
