A Must See

Mom and Dad invited me to go see Bedtime Stories with them tonight. I loved it!! A definate must see. If Jordan wasn't so scared to go into a theater I would take him to see it. I'll most certainly buy it when it comes out on DVD.

Happy Birthday to Me!!

Ok, so it's not my birthday anymore, but wasn't online much yesterday to post. I had a fun day with lots going on. I got to sleep in, which is awesome since I don't get that luxury very often. I went to the grocery store all by myself to pick up stuff for dinner, then went bowling. Boy but I stunk, even falling once, but I had great fun. My arm and body is even sore from it.

After bowling was dinner and games then going to bed. I got some great gifts from everyone, and thank them for making it such a great day for me. Now I'm just veggin' at my parents house until I decide to head home. Maybe tomorrow so I can do a little bit more shopping. We'll see though.

Christmas Goodies

I've been busy making layouts the past little bit, so I figured I'd post them. Only 2 more shopping days until Christmas...are you ready??? I totally am! Storms are heading out way, so I wonder if we'll have a White Christmas.

Here's a layout I created using the grab bag:

If that's not enough to get you running to Scrap Orchard, then how about 50% off today only on all of her stuff. She's even got a free kit today as well.

So act quickly and get over there. I might just have to beat you up if you don't.

Snow Day

After tons of snow falling yesterday, I got a phone call at 3:30am telling me that school was cancelled today. I wasn't thrilled by the call, other then being able to sleep in. It would have been Jordan's last day before break so he only ended up going one day this week. He's thrilled.

I'm looking forward to getting things finalized this weekend for Christmas. I just have a few things to pick up still. Now to get my Christmas cards mailed off.

I'll leave you with a new layout using Nikki Painter's Christmas Present Kit. So fun to work with. Check it out at Faith Sisters because for a limited time you can get it 25% off.

Cold and Rainy Day

So, after spending the weekend with mom and dad I was going to head home Sunday. Well, I decided I still needed to get a few things for Christmas so I called in sick for Jordan and was going to head home today. No such luck. All day it's been cold and rainy. I wasn't willing to brave driving over the mountain pass in snowy conditions. So, Jordan gets to ditch another day and I hope the weather clears enough for me to go home tomorrow.

I've enjoyed my time with mom and dad, I'm just ready to get a few things together still for Christmas and to have Jordan finish the last couple of days before break.

I'll be sure to post the pictures from the weekend when I get back. I also look forward to getting back to scrapping too. This is one of the reasons why I would consider getting a laptop to be able to take my stuff with me wherever I go. Hmmm....something to think about.

The Vampires are Coming....

Ok, maybe not but there is a fabulous new collaboration kit by Pineapple Plantation Designs & Franziska Altmann called Sweet Deceit found at Scrap Orchard. It is a "Twilight" inspired kit, but definately can be used for anything.

I asked my sister if I could use her photos of my niece at the Breaking Dawn release party aka: Vampire Prom. Of course she was all to willing to let me. Here's what I came up with.

I have a few more photos to play with, so I'll be posting more later.

Eventful Weekend

So beside the stye on my eye I quite enjoyed my weekend. We got the kids ready Saturday to go visit Santa. Jordan didn't want to go and kept telling up we were going to Burger King. Well, when we got to Santa, Jordan saw him and went right up, sat on his lap and was thrilled. Melody was the same way and in aww with "Ho Ho Ho" as she calls him. They both did great and we got this super picture even if Santa isn't looking.

Then we got home and I finished getting the area cleaned up where I was putting the tree. Should have been done a long time ago, but at least it's done and the tree is up. I didn't get around to decorating until today because we went to see the play at Pahrump pa pum pum put on by Shadow Mountain Community Players. Jordan had a blast listening and cheering for the high school brass ensemble that was playing Christmas carols.

Today the kids and I decorated the tree..mostly me, and I'm glad it's up. I'm seriously thinking about changing it though because we've had the same tree with a few additions for 9 years. I'm gonna save up my $$ and get stuff on clearance when Christmas is over. Now just what to get.

I also was able to get a couple of layouts done in the process this weekend.

I'm planning on baking goodies for Loney to take to work, so it'll be a long couple of days. Hopefully I won't eat too much as I go along and give it all away.

Ouch and blech

So yesterday I woke up with a bump on my eyelid. Yep, you guessed it...a stupid stye on my eye. Very painful and I just want it to go away. Oh well, I've been putting heat on it to help the pain, as well as help with bringing it to head faster so I don't have to go to the doctor. We'll see how that goes. I thought I'd put a few layouts I've created the past few days. Been on a pretty good kick.

So Little Time

I'm so far behind with everything, I think I'll go insane. Christmas is coming and I'm not near ready. My house is a mess, I hope all my decorations are ok, and I just don't want to face it. I'm behind a little bit with my CT assignments, so I need to catch up with those. Well, at least I've started to accomplish something today. My tennis shoes are on, I've got some laundry going, and I completed two layouts today, ok so one was last night, but I uploaded it today if that counts. Well, I'm off to find the energy to work on the house so I can decorate this weekend. Here's the two layouts I completed.
