A Wonderful Christmas!

I hope everyone had a great holiday! We sure did! Before I share all the Christmas pictures with you I want to show you some sneaks from the January kit at Citrus Tree Studio!

This kit is beautiful! It goes on sale January 5th, so save the date!!!

Here are pics from Christmas day at Mom's house!

Mom and my stepdad Tim opening up the Wii we got them! Mom has seen that it's a Wii, Tim doesn't know yet...

They were so excited. Mom was mad at me for buying it but not for long! Hehehe ;) I think they are having a Wii party on NYE. Seriously. Haha!

Mom & Tim pushing Scott's present in the living room. We said it was Tim's. I bought him a big toolbox from Sears that he wanted soooo bad. I figured it would be obvious if I wrapped it and had it by our tree.

Scott's reaction when he found out it was his!


That's his mad face. A good mad though :)

Christmas Eve Pictures!

Yay! Got my pink laptop from Scott :) Please ignore our couch, I know it doesn't match. We need a new one!

Scott loves Family Guy & Monopoly. Perfect gift!

WOW!!! He bought me the Cricut!!! I can't believe I got a laptop AND the Cricut.

And 2 cartridges! He did so good! I also got the tool kit and mats! Who knew he could shop! Haha!

A camera bag, I LOVE it!

We had to have A Christmas Story on :)

He loves his new tools!

Can't believe he got this too. I had one a few years ago but sold it. It really works. I have been doing 100 exercises on it each night :) I'm hoping for a six pack, haha!

More tools!

I have no idea what I'm doing in this pic.

A new shelf for my scrapbook room!

We also got each other more Wii games and clothes!

Snickers, Rascal & Orangey received gifts from Santa :) I didn't get a pic of Orangey though :( I know, I'm a bad mom. He's living on our back porch still. I bring him in every so often to let the girls get used to him.

Snickers playing with her new toys!

Woops, another picture of Scott, hehe! More tools!

Rascal & her stocking!

That toy is super cute!

So, as you can see, we are all spoiled rotten :) Nothing wrong with that, right?!?!

On to more scrappy stuff!

I made these cards for the Posh Blog!

I am in love with this Crate Paper line. The colors are awesome!!!

Whew, sorry for the long post! Have a great day!

Happy Monday!

I hope everyone had a GREAT weekend!!!

Scott and I have exchanged a few gifts because we can never wait! We are going to have our "official" Christmas on Christmas Eve. I can't wait ;) Anyways, I got him the New Super Mario Bros for the Wii and he LOVES it. OK, MORE than loves it. He has played this game for 6 hours straight. I really love it too! But I don't have the time to sit in front of the t.v. for 6 hours, haha! I love being able to play with him. Up to 4 can play at once, how cool is that?!

It is very addicting! Just ask Scott :)

Scott got me a new Wii game too. Harvest Moon. I have been wanting this game for *SO* long! Now, if he would stop playing it, maybe I could get addicted!!! I told him we need to buy another t.v. and Wii just for me! He's such a Wii hog!

I also got a new paper trimmer!

I love it!

We still have about 20 gifts to exchange with each other. Crazy huh?! I'm serious, there is AT LEAST 20. We really went all out this year!!!

Check out this layout I made for my DT over at Posh!

And here's another new one of Scott & I!

And don't forget about the New Year's Crop going on over at Citrus Tree Studio! Check out the forum for all the details!!!

Have a great day everyone! :)

It's getting closer!!!

Are you READY?!

I sure am!!! We have a huge surprise in store for my mom this Christmas. We bought her the Wii and I know she is going to flip out!!! She has been wanting one every since we bought ours, which was over a year ago!!! I also have a surprise for Scott but I can't say what it is. He reads my blog sometimes! I can't wait ;)

We are all done with the shopping...we just need to buy candy for a few people. It's been one of those years where we say we aren't going to buy much...and we end up going all out! :)

We had a gift exchange at Posh this year and here is what I whipped up for someone special:

I used some old KI Memories paper to alter this little pail!

So be on the lookout Posh girls!!! One of you will be receiving this very soon, I HOPE!!! :)

Also, if you're not too busy New Year's Eve, stop by Citrus Tree Studio for the New Year's Crop going on!!!

There will be 8 challenges/projects going on and you can qualify to win some AWESOME prizes!!!

If you can complete all 8 challenges, your will have 8 chances to win!!! Woohoo! :) So head on over to Citrus Tree to find out more about the crop!!!

I would like to say a big THANK YOU to all for the comments that you leave me. I love reading them and reading your blogs too!!! :)

Happy Thursday!!!

Hi all!

My morning is not starting out so great, our water froze last night! GRRRRR!!! I even left it running to prevent it freezing up! That's just my luck, I guess. Hopefully it will come back on today...I can't function without water! Looks like I'm going to be boiling all my spring water, haha!

Make sure you stop by the A True Friend Blog! We have Challenge #60 up called Preparing For Christmas! Here is my take on the challenge:

My three babes are so cute :)
