Well, it's been a bit busy around here, just it has for everyone lately. In addition to preparing for the Holidays, our Emma had her tonsils removed on Dec. 22nd. Thus, it's been a week of hunkering down at home. We sadly counldn't join in on all the Christmas celebrations, but at least Emma is recovering. Below are two pics from surgery day; a before and after pic.

And I'd also like to share a few pics from our Christmas. The first is my Mom opening her gift from Emma. It's an apron with a pic of Emma and Grandma in the kitchen together. They love to spend time in the kitchen together, so I thought it was the perfect gift. My just loved it.

This is me opening to me, from me! Yep! I always place a gift under the tree to me. This year I gave myself a custom made camera bag and camera strap(w/ my name embroidered on it.) It's awesome. I purchased it a Phat Straps sold on Esty. You must go check them out! She does very detailed work and
her service in superb!

These are of Emma and Jenna busy at gift opening! There was paper everywhere's by the time they were done!

And they love every one of their gifts.

And here is the dh enjoying his new Christmas recliner from Emma and I.

And a here are a few of the LOs I've completed since my last post about 2 weeks ago. Yep! I've been scrappin' when I can... So many fun pics to scrap lately. :)

I also want to direct you on to the Pixel Gypsy Site, where a new and exciting challenge experience is starting at the first of the year. If you are up fun and inspiring challenge, with great prizes, just click on the image below. Hope you join us for all the fun!!!

Well, I guess that's it for today... I'm off to do a few things around the house.

Good Sunday morning to you! I so hope your day is off to a great start! Mine has been wonderful! (Computer time and coffee!) It's cold and windy here, although warmer then it has been lately... Yesterday it was warm enough around here to melt some of the snow, and now it's lookin' pretty dingy outside. Ya know, that dirty kind of snow look. Yuck!

Today I'm double checking my list and finishing up those holiday projects. My Christmas cards are complete and ready to go in the mail on Monday. Yeah!!! And today I will finish up our family calendar; I have 18 of them to put together. Should be fun... a hybrid project. Oh, and I have a few gifts I'ld like to wrap also. I pretty much have my Christmas shopin' done, other then two gift cards, so I'm sitting pretty good right about now. And hoping to have some additional time scrap, with all of these projects behind me. :)
How about you, how are you coming with your holiday projects?

It's Friday!!! It's Friday! Thank goodness... it's been a very stressful week. Mainly work related, which has made it tough for me to keep my thoughts straight and my mojo up! (I hope the weekend will cure this! LOL!) But after, a week off of work, with my second nose surgery, the work really piled up. Although, I have complated a few layouts in the last couple of weeks, and wanted to share a few of my favs.
Full credits can be found here.

And I thought I would show you the new products in the store today,
(And remember they are all 20% on "New Product Release Friday!!")
Tis The Season Papers

Otherwise, I'm looking forward to the weekend. I'm hoping to finish up our family calendar; I have to actually... Christmas is almost here!!! Maybe I'll get some gifts wrapped too! Oh, and Emma and I, are hoping to decorate some Christmas cookies that Grandma made for us.
(More pics on the way, gotta take pics of cookie decorating! :))
So that's it, for me. I hope your weekend is a grand one!!! :)
