good day

Kids were up bright and early at 4:30am. Thank goodness they just took a quick look or two or three at the gifts then went back into Alex's room to watch movies and wait for the adults to wake up. By the time we were all moving, they were pretty excited to get opening and telling us all the great things they had seen so far.

Santa had left them a note. Their Elf on the Shelf Scout had also left them a note. Santa had left them each a Webkinz and they could tell which pile of presents was whose. They were on top of things.

They enjoyed themselves and then took some of their goodies down the hall to play while the grown ups opened our gifts. Too cute.

Dinner was good. I am stuffed!! Most of the trash is in the garage waiting for trash day on Monday. This week will be spent reworking the kids storage in their rooms to make room for the new toys. oh the joys.

I also owe a couple of ladies some cards. Will be working on them. Right now it's family time. Catch you all on the flip side!

project life is heading my way!

What a lovely day! I was busy as usual just like most of these days have been. But a good busy. Made a cake, chocolate and pumpkin pies and wrapped most of my presents. Have a few more to do. But had to stop in and say that I ordered my Project Life from Amazon.com today!! So darn happy. Going to love this new kit. I kinda missed doing it this year. Thinking it will be a good year to start back up with Alex starting Kindergarten in the fall and Kira going into 5th grade. So many good times!

Off to wrap those gifts before Christmas gets here!!

here i am!

It has been way too long since I have been here. So many things going on, I'm lucky I have time to breathe! I think it is coming to a close... until the family arrives and then it will be hostess time. Not sure I'm ready, but we shall have a good time!!

We got our family pictures taken at Picture People at the Fox Run Mall. It was not the best experience I have had with them. A tad bit disappointed with how they turned out so while we were all dressed up, we decided I should figure out how to use the self times on my camera and take a family picture in front of the tree. On a side note, I have had my camera for over 2 years and had never used the timer feature. Wondering what else I have not used on this amazing camera!! Anywho... here is our family picture for this year!!

And we took a bunch of pictures of the kids with their Christmas jammies on for our Christmas card photo. This one was the winner this year. Such cuties!!

Kira is having a playdate today. Seems to be going well. Alex is missing hanging with his sister but we are keeping him entertained. Thinking after, we are going to head out so I can find some new wine glasses that match my Christmas dishes. Thinking I want something besides the blue ones I have had for MANY MANY years.

There was a storm on its way, but it has moved away from the coast so it doesn't look like we're going to have any snow tomorrow. But I went out and filled the fridge anyways. I don't trust those weather people. And it saves me a trip out on Monday when I'll have a small pile of laundry to tackle.

I did manage to take pictures of all of my Christmas cards that I made this year. Need to get them off the camera and posted. Keep your eyes peeled. I know you will. LOL

We did get an Elf on the Shelf for our family. Kira named him Scout (Alex was okay with that) and Scout has been a ton of fun to have around the house. He has gotten himself into some fun spots and the kids are enjoying finding him every morning. So cool. He even managed to get ahold of my point and shoot camera and had him self a small photo session one night!

Promise to not be such a stranger around here. Thinking the vacation will be good for us all!
