Sammy's nickname is Charmer and it is so fitting. She is so full of fun and so happy!
This is Sammy with the first snow fall of the year. It snowed before Thanksgiving and it really put her in the Christmas spirit. Sammy is a Senior in High school and since this is her last Christmas as a child she has been determined to make the most of it. So prior to Thanksgiving our house was decked out for the holidays and Sammy began The Holiday Bucket List.
This is her chart. She makes me laugh. Out load most of the time.
I don't know what I would do without my Charmer. She is my sunshine.
Yes she made a chain to count down the days until Christmas.
She made amazing snowflake and hung them from the ceiling. Her room is magical.
I love to go up and lay on her bed with her and enjoy the
Christmas spirit and of course laugh at all the cleaver funny things she says.
Her tree. She gathered photos from Christmas past and they were her ornaments.
It was so fun to see how she has grown over the years and the fun memories.
More snowflakes! Could that be friends on in the background?
More decorations. The photos don't do her room justice. It is quiet amazing!
Here is Sammy's Holiday Bucket List

Sammy had a bucket list for Halloween and #1 on the list was to host a murder mystery party.
She let me help her and it was a lot of fun. We went way over board and it took a lot of time.
We don't need no special cupcake bakery we did our own purple creations with a little bit of glamor. Sammy decorated most of the cupcakes and she did a great job.
We had colored candy sprinkled around. It added color and fun.
The dessert table!
Sammy wanted Sparkling ciders. So we had to add a little Halloween fun to the bottles.
We also had to have rasberry lemon water. A family favorite.
The food table.
We made some spooky glamorous centerpieces. They are branches in water which we added dry ice to so they were smoking and some sparkling ornaments. They turned out really cool. We had strands of lights around the table. It turned our really cool looking. The photos don't do it justice.
Who did it?
Treat bags and to go containers so they could gather up some of the candy to go.
We made some pom poms and had them hanging everywhere.
Let the party begin.
Trying to figure out the clues.
A murder took place.
Who did it?
The Beauty Contestants. Oh and inspector Joe!
It was Miss Arizona with the poison filled tic tacs. Bad Miss Arizona (aka Sammy)
The celebration began. Sparking cider makes girls silly.
I promise it's Sparking Cider.
The winners. Best Actess, Money Bags, Crime Solver and Best Dressed.
I'm glad that you got to mark this party off your bucket list Sammy Charmer. I love you!
