Our Holidays

We had a great holiday....here are some highlights....
Christmas Eve Our Traditional homemade pizza - this year in the shape of a wreath Christmas Day The boys made these Chocolates the day before Christmas Eve, it was a lot harder then we thought but they did an amazing job!
You have to pop over to the Love Is In The Details Blog and check out Lori's beautiful Christmas presents!!! Think I will try this next year!
Can't believe how close we are to the big day!!!! Here is a blast from my past....

Time to Share

So it is time to share my design team entries for the position at Love Is In The Details.

I start my position on January 1st and I can't wait!!!!

Baking with Boys

So the boys and I did our annual cookie baking yesterday and they did an awesome job.
We had a lot of fun.
Of course when you are baking with boys always expect the unexpected....
Seems like right now I have the urge to scrapbook summer pictures and use brightly coloured patterned papers. Is it because winter is in full swing - had a lot of snow today, icy roads and frigid temperatures - who knows? Maybe it is because I am so behind on my Christmas cards that if I pretend it is summer I don't have to think about it! LOL!
Thankfully I have the fun December Kit from Love Is In The Details to get me back on the right track!!!

Hard to believe Aidan was ever so small.

Mrs.Big Shot & December Kit

When I found out that I won the design team spot at Love Is In The Details and I would be getting a Big Shot machine (plus much more) I was in a daze. I then spent the rest of the day singing Mr.Big Shot who do you think you are.....Now I have my Big Shot I will be singing Mrs.Big Shot from now on. She is just so darn pretty, she is blinged out and she is awesome!!!! My poor Cuttlebug will not know what happened as he has been shelved.
I am also loving the December Kit. It is so inspiring and comes with so many awesome papers, stickers, chipboard pieces and embellishments that I could fill a whole album and still have leftovers. Here a few creations I have done but there will be much more to follow.

Time Flies

So I was looking through old Christmas folders and I found this picture and just had to share. They grow up much to fast! and so did I..... *sigh*

December Already!

Well it sounds like a cliche but honestly where did the last month go? It seems we were just celebrating Halloween and now we are in the full holiday swing. We have put up our Christmas tree, made some yummy treats and we even have wrapped gifts under the tree. It is beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!!!!
Another non-Christmassy layout!
Waiting for the awesome monthly kit from Love Is in The Details before I launch into my Christmas pictures.
To see or purchase the kit you can find it here, it is to die for!
Well I guess the holidays are coming, there is snow on the ground, lights on houses and carols played in every store you go to. I am not sure if I am ready for the holidays just yet, give me a week or two! So here is a layout I did from the holiday that just passed.

One more card

Here is another one.....

Another Card

Yes I am card crazy lately, I just can't help myself!!! So here is another one....
Sorry for blurry picture!


Who knew how hard it would be to take a picture of Nic with his newly lost tooth?? Open your eyes, smile with your teeth and look at me. Well it was not that easy. More then half the pictures I took his eyes were closed or his mouth was closed, or both were closed....what good is that???? This was his first tooth that he lost on his own, the bottom two came out via the dentist. He was very happy that the tooth fairy left him a toonie and very confused about why she left inside his pillowcase. Okay, maybe she had a bad day and was VERY tired!!! Give the lady a break! Anyways here is the best picture I got, and yes this was truly the best I got. UGH!


So the kids have been homesick but who can blame them? Nic has also been saving his money for a pet fish so we told him we would help him out and split the cost. Aidan decided he would like a dwarf hamster. Hopefully they will help ease the homesickness a bit.
Here they are.....


Halloween Highlights

So Halloween came and we were sure shocked at the turn out at the door. Going from our usual 150 kids in Brandon and running out of candy to 28 kids and so much candy left over it could put put a whole school of kids into a sugar coma! Thankfully Mike's sister is a teacher and we passed some treats on to her for her class. Anyways here are some pictures from the night....

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween Everyone!!! Have a great day!
This made me laugh so hard...just wanted to share in case you guys never saw this!!!! From the Ellen show.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T36KFPGkUJA Hope you are having a great day!


So to get out of my scrapbook slump I have been making some cards. I have found a lot of inspirational blogs out there and they have really helped. So here are a few cards that I have made this week.
*Note the Halloween card was a total scraplift but all the others are 100% mine.*
