Wow!! I can't believe Christmas is over! We had such a wonderful Christmas but it went sooo fast it almost feels like a blur! I keep looking at all the kids toys and wondering "where did they get that?" lol

Thought I'd share a picture or two, I hope you all had a WONDERFUL Christmas!

Whoooohooooo I've been scrapping!! I'm pretty excited that in between getting things ready
for Christmas that I've been able to find some time to scrap! Its a little easier with my afternoons free while both the kids are at school!
I have to say again how THRILLED I am with our weather right now! Today was almost 50 degrees (again) it rained for a little bit and we have NO snow on the ground!!! I just LOVE it!

Here are my latest layouts:
My Prince: I used a Fancy Pants swirly and painted it with
Gold shiney paint (I painted the Heidi Swapp letters too)
Basic Grey patterned paper, Prima flowers and a Heidi Swapp journaling spot.

Our Idol:
I gotta admit I have a thing for Swirls right now!! :D
They are sooo cute and can be added to anything for that
pefect touch! I didn't use any patterned paper on this one, I just
didn't feel it needed any. Love the pictures!

I love this picture of Ciaara and her Papa! I used the Basic Grey gypsie line
of papers and letters I got from my secret sister Nicole at Memory Creators!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day :D

Its already Sunday afternoon, where do the weekends go? How do they go by so fast!
Its been a beautiful weekend here weatherwise, its in the high 40's and sunny!
Nate went out and cleaned up the rest of the yard today, he been putting it off because itjust hasn't snowed to even been threating to snow! I am enjoying this warm weather and have enjoyed our first months of "winter", the longer it takes to get super cold and snowy the better in my opinion!

Yesterday I got in a little more Christmas shopping, we are almost done and I got a few more items crossed off my list. The kids and I also picked out a present for Nate. We didn't make it all the way to the cities beacause we had a late start. Ciaara went to her very first birthday party yesterday and had a blast! I picked her up at 2:30 and then headed south, we just went to Target and Wal-mart grabbed some pizza and came home.

I have been scrapping a little, glad to have some mojo back! Thought I'd share a couple!
I also did one for Becky's sketch contest at Pagemaps but I'll keep that one to myself til after the contest! Wish me luck :)

Last night I decided to take some pictures of the kids that I can put in our Christmas cards!

Its always an enjoyable time lol, the kids get antsy and I start to get impatient beacause I can't get the perfect shot! I think I ended up with a great one though! I thought I'd share a couple photos from the photo shoot , I won't share the one I decided to use just some of the rejects ;)
hehehehe aren't they silly??

I got a lot of things to share today!! lol
First of all I FINALLY got a layout done---WHOOOHOOO!! I went through my inspiration binder today and found a layout that called out to me, it was a one photo layout but knew I could use these pictures on it and make it my own!
I am happy with the result! I love these picture of Ciaara that SHE took of herself! She is so silly!

Next we had a SUPER busy weekend, we were in the cities all weekend!
We went to a NHL (MN Wild) Hockey game on Friday night--the Wild lost BIG time but its always fun to be there watching!
Nate's store was nominated for an award and we went to a banquet on Saturday night, the banquet went a little slow but there was a comedian there and we ended up going out with another couple and had a BLAST! We went to a club called SHOUT and they had dueling pianos there where they were singing and playing--it was GREAT!

I met up with Jess on Saturday -YAY!! It was so fun to see her again! We shopped around Archivers and the mall and chatted a lot! It was great to see you Jess!

I bought these goodies at Archivers! I had a 30% off coupon that I used on the stamps, they are super cute! Then I grabbed a few pieces of Christmas patterned paper, some of which have glitter on them! Sooooo pretty!

I shopped at Joanns also on Saturday Morning and found these AWESOME tins filled with KI products! I was armed with a few different coupons and used a 50% off coupon on each of the 2 tins I bought so they were only $9.99--what a deal! I thought I'd share what they look like!

Well thats all for tonight, sorry for the super long post and to think I didn't even get in to the Christmas tree we put up--I'll save that for next
time! Thanks for reading!
