Glad this day is over!

The day went pretty smoothly but I'm glad things are going back to normal.

Not sure where all of Tallys things are going but we'll find places for them. She got a couple of big toys, some small ones and alot of clothes. This isn't including the tons of things she got last week in Texas. I received alot of my scrapbooking supplies that I've been eyeing so I can work on stuff at home instead of going to Mistys house. Not that I won't still go once a week but at least I'll be able to finish pages here when I need to. Also got alot of gift cards to various places. Here is my favorite pic of Tally today.

Jeanne and I had a great visit last week. Here are a few pics from that.

Pretty tired today so I'm going to leave it at that for now.

Merry Christmas!

I know I still haven't updated on my Austin trip, will try and do it on Monday. Just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!

Getting ready....

So we are leaving for Texas tomorrow. I've been making my list of everything to bring. I'm sure I'll forget something but thought I would give it a go anyway. Alot of little stuff I need to get done today before Matt's cousins Christmas concert tonight. Have at least one more load of laundry to throw in the wash before I leave to put in a order for one of Matt's costumers who just can't wait until Monday for 10 more wallets. Since Matt is trying to finish up his work so we can head out no later than 12 tomorrow, I volunteered to make the lady happy when what I really wanted to do was tell her to shove it. Considering she called our house at 10 last night... granted I was on the phone for about 15 mins before she called but hey, that's not the point!

Need to go to the store and pick up some stuff, guess I'll do that while waiting for that ladies pictures. The place Matt has his pics developed at is way to close to my scrappin' store, so I'll try to stay clear of it. Even though I could use some more ribbons.... but I'll stay away, no time for scrappin' anyway. It can wait until Monday when I'm back home.

I'm ready for this trip but at the same time I'm ready for it to be over. I can't wait to finally meet Jeanne and I can't wait to see my family. I just hate trips like this, the fast ones that just fly by. On top of that it's almost Christmas. Need to get my house ready for next weekend and I haven't even figured out what I'm making this year. I wanted to do something new. Not the traditional Ham that we usually have. So if you have any ideas... throw them this way.

Ok... enough about my trip. You'll see the pics when I return.

Finally got all the information sent to the semi company about my claim. I've just been really forgetful lately and kept forgetting to bug Matt about taking pics of my car. It's done now though and the estimates are sent as well. So hopefully I can have that taken care of by the new year.

I'll leave you with a few pages I worked on in the past couple of days. Then I'll be back with pics on Monday...

Pretty Busy lately...

With the holidays coming up I've been pretty busy. Seems like I'm constantly doing something. It never ends.

I had big plans today to finish all of the laundry and get all the rooms upstairs straightened. My mom called and asked if I wanted to go to Wal Mart with her and since I was stuck in the house with the snow yesterday I said sure! So we went and apparently a few weeks ago my mom had Tallys pics done for Christmas without my knowledge. They turned out cute of course (beautiful little subject) LOL So that is part of Matt and I's Christmas gift. Here is one... ok two...

We also went to Kohls and got a little more shopping done. My mom bought Matt's gifts and she also bought Tally something else. Got home around 4 and put dinner in the oven and took a nap on the couch until 7pm and that was only because Matt woke me up cause he was hungry. So needless to say, my laundry wasn't finished and none of the upstairs is straightened. LOL

It snowed yesterday, first one of the season. We only got a few inches and it stayed mostly today since it didn't get above freezing but we will be saying goodbye to it tomorrow with our high of 40 something. LOL Here is a pic I took last night.

I sent all of my Christmas cards last week and everyone should be receiving them in the next couple of days. I've also been working on some creative altered gifts for a couple of ppl. I can not say what they are or show them since 2 of these ppl read my blog sometimes but I will post my altered gifts after they get to open them. ;) One will be next week because I finally get to meet Jeanne!!! YAY!!! I am so ready, she is as well. Only a week away now. So I will be posting pics when I get back. Also pics from my familys Christmas celebration. Ready for some new scrapping material. With Tally being sick on and off lately I don't have alot of new pictures to scrap with.

I've been a winner lately... not weiner... winner. LOL I attended a chat with Shabby Princess a week or so ago and put some layouts in the gallery there and won a $10 gc for the Shabby Shoppe. Lovely suprise, even though it's so hard for me to decide since I have so many lovely things from her already. Then I commented on Heathers blog a couple of days ago and she was giving away some papers as a RAK . Then today during my daily blog reading circle I noticed my name on her blog as one of the RAK winners. I am so excited and can't wait to work with the papers in Tallys ABC's Album. Which I fixed up a little...

Ok I've bored everyone enough tonight plus it's getting late. So until next time... take care of yourselves! :D
