Pictures from Christmas....

Well, our Christmas was nice. The kids enjoyed it and that is all that really matters. My Christmases are for the kids now anyway. Nayshawn loved his Nintendo DS and Niah loved her Portable DVD player. I got a Making Memories Carousel and Paint brushes from Ezzy a ring from Nayshawn and a porcelain egg from Niah. I bought myself a backdrop, a studio light and a 85mm lens. So all in all I had a wonderful Christmas and I am looking forward to a great new year.

Merry Christmas

Christmas Graphics Merry Christmas everyone. We are getting ready for Santa. Kids are almost in bed. Most of the gift have been wrapped and we have been tracking Santa on NORAD. He is currently in Peru and working is way up to North America. We have made his cookies and put them by the tree with his milk. All we really have to do now is wait. I will be back soon with pictures of Christmas Day.

Some Scrapping Going on.....

Tallyscrapper is having another Design Team search. So I created some Layouts for my entry. Take a look. The last one is actually a gift for my Sister-in-law. It is mounted on a canvas.

Feeling More like Christmas...

OK, I am starting to feel it now. I did some shopping today. Can't say what I got for far that my family is reading my blog.
I am especially happy to purchase Nayshawn's gift. He has been doing so much better in school lately. I even got a call from his teacher yesterday to say he has been behaving himself and doing his work. He has been getting A's and B's. How beautiful is that. So needless to say I am going to run to the store to pick up the Nintendo DS he requested. I love times like these. Niah on the other hand wants a fridge for her room as her Christmas gift. What is wrong with that lazy little girl? She won't be getting that, for those of you who thought I was even considering it.
For now I leave you with some pictures of the ornaments from my tree. The are simple but beautiful and mean so much to me because they are to same ornaments I use to decorate my mother's tree when I was growing up.

Feeling like Christmas.....Maybe

There are a lot of little thing going on around the house that makes it feel like Christmas time. Living in Florida makes it so hard sometimes to get into the holidays. Other states see the change in seasons and right now they are experiencing snow and cold weather. What do we have 80 degree weather and no sign of the cold. So I have to create the feel some how. Not just for me but for the kids. I bought these two little trees from Target for the kids to put in there rooms.

And our stocking are hung by the Chimney with care. In hopes the St Nick will bring some goodies.

And you know I just couldn't wait any longer to break out the boots. Even though today was 78 degrees....it's December. All the Floridians should be able to understand.

Art

I am so excited to show you what the kids and I have been up to. Well, a couple of weeks ago I went to the store and bought some canvases and paint to do a paint night for me and the kids. I think it was a success.....check out what we created.
I didn't know my little family had so much talent. They are all hung very nicely on the walls of our rooms. They are so proud of their work. I think they have soon these painting to everyone who has walked through my door. Which makes me happy because it is important to have some creativity in your life.
