oh, some other pics to share

Hope the holidays were good to you!

As bah humbug as I have been , I really did enjoy seeing family on Christmas Eve! Had a really good day and it was nice to see everyone. Kind of helped me with my humbuginess! ( I know that's not a real word, just humor me!) So we had the holidays with Scott's side, and my side is tomorrow. That one's the tough one...our first Christmas without Mom. I'm trying not to over think it. Just letting it be.....I know it will be hard but I also know we can get through it together. I really am lucky to have the family I have! I feel very blessed about that.

I wanted to share a couple of LO's I made today. I guess now that I have finally gotten my Christmas spirit, I'm not ready to let it go!!! Much love to all!!! Have a safe and happy New Year!

oh and the the first one is a QP by Chantal and the 2nd is a QP by Jennifer schmitt.

Merry Christmas friends!

I know I know, bad blogger again! Sometimes it's just hard to find the time to blog. Figured I better get on here and wish all my family and friends a Very Merry Christmas!!! I've been so bad I didn't even get cards mailed out! Yes.....I feel the shame......

Anyway, aside from my shame I hope the holidays are filled with lots of love and best wishes for a New Year full of good health, joy, and great memories!

Also while I'm on here I'll share a page I did using a QP called angel breeze by Timounette. I love this pic of my niece!

Thanks for checking in with me and I appreciate your comments and emails, they always make me smile! I'm a lucky gal!! I'll try to get better at keeping up my blog! No promises though!! LOL!!
God Bless!!! Enjoy the holiday!!

just have to share...

yesterday on my pre-k bus we were talking about telescopes and this little girl said the cutest thing. She got all excited and said " I was looking through my telescope last night and I saw God! He was on a cloud! And do you know what he was wearing? Pajamas with puppies on them!"

How stinkin cute is that????? Just had to share that!

Hope you are all having a wonderful day or if not I hope this post made you smile!

Is it so hard to make a decision?

Just thought I'd share a page I made yesterday. I used a kit from Megan Farrow (Flergs) called Chase-ing Ryan. The word art came from Dirty Feet Designs aka Heather Benson.

I haven't done any actual paper scrapbooking in a long time. I miss it.....going to have to play around soon. I certainly have the supplies for it! I even bought a really cute stamp set from Stampin Up to make my Christmas cards and I just haven't felt like making cards this year. I've made cards every year for quite some time. I was at the store last night and thought I'd just buy some cards this year but then I felt guilty! So I didn't buy any. Now I can't make up my mind what to do! I asked Meg if she wanted to help me make cards and she just looked at me saying " I have to?" Then she suggested I just buy the cards. Guess I am on my own! Either way, my cards will be late this year! I usually try for the first of the month but ......will be more like right before Christmas!! Seriously, what's so hard about it?? make it or buy it??? Just do something!! We don't even have the tree up yet!!! sigh.......where's my holiday spirit????

Anyway, enough of my rambling, have a great day and thanks for checking in with me!!!

Just Rambling!

It's snowing again.......sigh.......OK, so Winter is here & I just gotta suck it up. If it weren't for the fact I have to be out and driving in it most of the day I wouldn't care really. I'd say Bring it on & I'd make hot cocoa & snuggle on the couch with a good book. The bright side of it all is, it is a good excuse to go shopping for some cute snow boots!! :-)

Well I had to bail on Tina to see Twilight but I did go with Angie last Monday night to see it. It was good but not near as good as the books! Plus I couldn't help but laugh at some of the scenes and especially Jasper's face through the movie. Dude only had like one line too. The make up was overdone and I missed some of the stuff from the book they didnt add in the movie. I'd actually like to see it again cause I think Angie & I missed alot cause we had the giggles so bad. ((I know, sometimes we act like 12 yr old girls or something!)) We had a good time though! :-) I just hope they do better for the 2nd movie.

I hope all my" little turkeys" had a good Thanksgiving?? Ours was Ok. It was nice to be with family and the food was great and all of that. It was just hard without Mom. I know Christmas will be even harder still. We all miss her so much and the holidays are feeling a little empty without her. I sort of felt in a daze. I'm sure it will feel that way each holiday for a very long time. Luckily I have an amazing family & together we can get through all of this.

I haven't even been in the mood to do any Christmas shopping! It's right around the corner and I am so not prepared! I have got to get busy & figure out what to get done. Megan's list is short but expensive!! I do have some ideas for my sisters but I need to get busy!

well I better get a move on....have a great day & thanks for checking in with me.
