Playing catch-up....

This was a pic from Christmas day....mommy got us all PJ's!!!

I'm back at work so haven't had much time online. Seems the minute I go to work, my house gets destroyed and then I spend all my time cleaning once I get home. I think I'll ask Santa for a maid next year. Either that or Pray intensely that Henry works for more then 10 weeks next year.

Sneak Peek and a list.....

Here's a little sneak peek of Cocoa Daisy's January kit . This was the first layout I made and just totally fell in love with it. Sorry glitter, flowers and thin ribbon aren't in it. But anyhow....I went through my photos of the girls from the year and it amazes me how much they can change in just a year. They may not be perfect shots, but it is who they that.
Things left to do in two days!!
  • Make some cookies for Santa
  • Finish wrapping a whole lotta presents
  • Laundry, laundry, laundry
  • Clean up the house
  • fix the tree....little ones rearranged all the ornaments!
  • Give Lillie a haircut/trim
  • Finalize Christmas dinner plans and time
  • Try not to feel so stressed

So, If you do not "see" me till after Christmas....Please have a Wonderful, Stress-free, maybe White Christmas!! Enjoy it and do not forget what it is really all about!

Yesterday was Turkey Day?

We had our Holiday feast at work yesterday. Lots of food....3 deep fried turkeys, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy. Tons of sweet treats, dips and veggies. It was a fun...not do a whole lot of work day!
Me and Megan!
My boss Kev getting the turkeys ready.

Sean actually doing some work.
1st turkey done.
What a beauty!
Bob chowing down!
Jim taking the 2nd turkey out of the fryer.

And the Annual burning of a Christmas ornament....don't ask.

Henry has strep throat and is actually at the hospital right now. Yesterday he went to the doctor and they gave him amoxacillian, today soon after he took it his tongue started swelling. I have a feeling he has become allergic to it. So any thoughts and prayers sent his way right now would be appreciated. Thank you.

ETA: He's home and doing better....yup they changed his meds.

got a knock on my door today.....

from a young man needing a little assistance. This was at around 11am and it's still snowing. Think maybe we will get that foot of snow they've been hyping for the last few days! Heck I personally would love another foot on top of this so I wouldn't have to go to work tomorrow....wishful thinking I'm sure.

I made the wreaths probably about 6 years ago, it's what I used to to before I started scrapping.

Oh and we can't forget about the deer......they need holiday loving too!

Favorites ornaments

Thought I'd share some of my favorite ornaments from my tree. Besides the kids ornaments I wanted my tree to be mostly gold, still need to get a new's blue.

Got my January kit from Cocoa Daisy yesterday....yet another Gorgeous kit! I sooooooo want to play with it but I need to get printer ink first......notice the lack of layouts from me?.......that's why! I tried printing out these photos today......not so good. Well I'm off to bed....not feeling so great lunch is still sitting in my stomach....yuck. nite...

Mom Rocks!!

I've been enjoying my Timmie's coffee at home for the past couple days thanks to Mom! And besides that she is truly a blessing in my (our) life. I may not show my appreciation for her as much as I should and that needs to change.

Today I am debating on putting up the tree. I have been seeing so many photos on blogs of everyone's pretty trees, maybe today will be the day. I also am hoping to get the girls dressed and looking pretty so i can get a good photo of them to share with everyone. Haven't even started my Christmas cards yet! Haven't made any cookies yet. But we did manage to get out and get a few presents for the girls last night.

This we got for both Morgan and Lillie. I think they are gonna love it!!

Ok, off to get some things cleaned up and think about bringing the tree up....wish me luck that the girls don't rip it down on day one!

I tried...

So much for doing something everyday till Christmas. Some days you just have the creativeness zapped right out of you. Blame it on The Tin Man kept me up for the past three nights till 11:00...way past my bedtime! Well worth it though, I have always loved The Wizard of Oz and this was an excellant adaptation of it!!

Well I hope the creativity comes back...I still need to make 3 more books for a friend at work!

December 2

I want to try to make something crafty and Christmasy everyday til Christmas. So here is what I made today. I know this is nothing new...I've seen it on a ton of blogs, but hey I had to try my hand at it too! I also got up the majority of my Christmas decor today...minus the tree. All of my snowmen are at home on the mantle, I have two little trees for the girls to play with, hopefully they will avoid the big tree when it is up, and next will be my window lights. Since we already have snow on the ground....I doubt that dh will get out there to put up the outside lights. I knew we should of just left them up last season!! I also have to start planning what cookies I want to make this year. Snickerdoodles are always first on my them!! I'm looking for quick and VERY easy recipes this year, so if you have any please share. My time and income is limited this it will be el'cheapo cookies!!

For Sale.....

You see I have this gorgeous Amy Butler tote and I have never used it...why? Because when it's on my shoulder it hangs down to m knees....I'm too short for this lovely bag! So it can be yours for $27 + Shipping. Email me at .

ETA: Price Change $22+ shipping!!!

Tis the Christmas Season.....

December 1st
I was going to break out my Christmas Decor today...minus the tree. BUT that just did not happen. You see in order for me to get anything house MUST be clean. And NO ONE here was willing to help me clean...well then! Tomorrow is another day.
I did however manage to get three mini albums done today that I'm selling at best customers! Oh and yesterday I made this cute little tree, found the tree topper today at Joann's.
So tomorrow will be another day....and I will get my decorations out!
