Is it really only one week to christmas day?! Wow, I am done with my shopping, my cards will be sent out tomorrow, and all that is left is to wrap some presents! We took the girls to see good ol' Santa last night-they look pretty excited about the holidays this year...

Vanessa made this lovely little candy house at kindergarten as a present to us! :) She was very proud of this creation, as she should be.

And, since I am feeling christmas-y this morning, I thought I would share this little "encounters with santa" mini accordion tag book I made awhile ago using the big 9000pc Cosmo Cricket Christmas set (you may have seen this in the idea guide included in the kit). I think this is one of my very favorite minis I have made and it is also one of the girl's favorites. Each tag inside showcases a moment in 2007 with Santa, from writing him letters, visiting him, and leaving his cookies on christmas eve.

And a few of the tags inside

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

My little Robyn is such a silly girl. She seems to make a real effort to try to be silly! This is the lovely face I get when I pull out the camera lately- my little goofball!

Hope your Tuesday is great!

I feel proud of myself for actually doing a christmas layout while it is still the season! We went decorated our tree over the weekend and the girls had such a fun time. It was a super cold and snowy day, just perfect for putting up the decorations.

Vanessa picked the theme this year for multi-color balls. We were surprised that she declined the pink/silver idea we pitched to her!

Have a great day!

Happy Tuesday! Are you all ready for the holidays? Time has gone by so fast, I can't believe how close to christmas it is! I still have tons to get done, of course!

But, this morning, I put this little layout together real quick in photoshop...my crafting table is buried under a bunch of work in progress and I didn't want to deal with it, so I just played around a bit on the computer! FUN!

Have a great day!

Hey there!
I'm finally checking in after our long Thanksgiving weekend. On Thanksgiving, we got out early and took the girls down to the big Thanksgiving Day parade. They really enjoyed it and so did Matt and myself :-)
Here are just a few of the many many photos I took of the parade.

Impressive! (and a little scary!)

Rainbow fish!

Good ol' Uncle Sam

Robyn loved getting some beads

And Vanessa enjoyed snuggling up and watching the parade pass by

After the parade, we realized how cold we were! We hurried to our car and went to grandma's house for a big feast. It was really a great day. I hope your weekend was wonderful too.
