I WANT MY HOUSE BACK!!!

I don't know about you but this year, I'm looking around this house and am screaming inside!!!! The family had a wonderful Christmas this year. I had the stomach flu :(
Good news, I lost 7 pounds. Bad news, Christmas is over and this house is a wreck.
Chris did so good. He made Christmas dinner (turkey and ham), played the perfect host and made sure the kids are fed, bathed and happy. I don't know what I would do without him.
I was begging him to kill me Friday night as I was hugging the porcelain bowl. I even tried to tempt him but informing him, my life insure policy would pay off the house, bills and help get the kiddos through college...He wasn't biting. Two days later, I'm kinda happy with his choice. Tomorrow, I hope I will be very happy, lol.
Now the kiddos are taking naps, he is at work and I'm finally getting out of my fog. I'm looking around this house and wishing I was Samantha from Bewitched or Mary Poppins. I wish I could just wiggle my …

Deck the Halls

Here are pictures of our trees this year. The first picture is of the living room tree. This is my "flower arrangement" as the family fondly calls it. I also put out my Santa collection every year and here are a couple of them on the mantle.

The second picture is our family room tree. This tree has colored lights and all of our "memory" ornaments. This tree the whole family puts up while watching Christmas movie and eating cookies.

Baby shower gifts

Had a lot of fun making these for the baby shower...
I found a great tutorial at The Craftiblog for the tri-shutter card. I used Sizziz Texture Boutique Embosser, Stickles, baby stickers embellishments that I had in my folders and a part of the baby shower invite. The mommy-to-be loved it!The word book was made using SCAL and Cricut Expressions. I welded a rectangle from the spaces block along with ea letter in the baby's name. I also embellished it with stickers, journaling, Stickles, ribbons and vellum.
I did get a great surprise at the shower. My gift had the "blue dot" on it, so I got the door prize!!!
