hurry up and finish up....

That's what I feel all of a sudden! Not sure if it's because it's the end of the year....or because Kevin & I are heading off to Mexico in 6 days! I'm a "everything in it's place" kinda that's probably it. Not sure if I will get the tree and decorations put away cause it's snowing AGAIN! Ok Ok enough snow already! The box's for everything are under the I think everything can wait till we get back!
Some gift card holder tags I made before Christmas:

Santa brought Harley just what he asked for:The girls checking out Summer's new Dance Revolution....thanks soooo much Santa...I love hearing "tootsie roll" over and over and over and over and over again..... love yah big guy! Yes this is me Christmas morning....I'm posting a picture of me in my jammies with bad hair lol...I was very happy in this picture...Summer made me a beautiful beaded necklace :)This is Harley...up on his Grandma & Grandpa Beaudry's ROOF! The guys had to shovel some of the snow off the roof so they thought it would be fun to send the six year old up there to jump was pretty fun to stomach flipped and flopped a bit but their was enough snow to jump into so it was ok!This is what I've been up to this morning...trying to finish up 2007 Christmas so I can close up the "Christmas" album that has been ongoing since 1993!

Kevin got me a bind-it-all for Christmas...I have a feeling I will be binding alot of mini album's this sure is fun!
I've been wanting to find a "new" way to scrap for a long time now....and I think I found it. Becky Higgin's blog: showcases her great idea of scrapping by week. You take a picture & journal everyday so that every two page layout is a "week" in your life. So I've started it. Of course I won't get the kit with it being a U.S.A. purchase but I will improvise :)

Dec28th...first day of first week...dinner at mom's! Me & Mom! :)

Dec 29th...second day...I'm going to finish Christmas 2007 & 2008 Layout's today!

My scrapdesk!

December already??!!

Sorry I have been a bad blogger....not sure if anyone reads this to know that I'm a bad blogger...but I guess I know!
So what have I done since Zoe's birthday.
I have created alot of stuff...layouts, cards, Christmas gifts. Time just seems to fly by in this house!
I finally got around to painting our was this teal blue color with a bad wallpaper boarder...I just couldn't stand it anymore.
I've been trying to catch up on my scrapbooking. I am ALMOST at "before we moved to alberta" photo's...which means I am only 3.5 years behind :)

Here's a couple layout's that I did that I like. Some scraplifting from Canadian Scrapbooker was required for extra mojo :)

The kids have made their Christmas cookie tree's with Grandma already....a favourite tradition around here....they are just as yummy to eat as they are to look at :) They also put together a gingerbread house for Kevin & I :) It's missing a few parts already....

Then it was time for our tree to go up....Here's Kevin & Harley putting it up and putting the lights on! You know it's getting close to Christmas when our tree goes up! We are not the kind of people that have the tree up for two months...couple weeks is good for us!
Harley giving me some "Santa"'s good to have a little boy...especially a lovey little one like Harley! xo (don't mind how tired I look)
Zoe helping Harley put the Angel on the top....yes Kevin is behind helping too :)

AND last but not has SNOWED!! Yes snow....and lots of it. I'm not a measuring kinda girl but holly cow there is alot! I was stranded at home for a few days being as the tires on my truck are bald...but that has been new "all seasons" the other night!

Well not sure if I will post before our holiday...Kevin & I are headed to Mexico! Kids with be here with Grandma & Grandpa...the dogs...the hamsters.....I'll be on a VACATION!

Have a Merry Christmas everyone out there in blogland :)
