Whew.. Christmas has passed

Wow! I can't believe how busy I have been between work, dt stuff and of course Christmas...thus the missing blogging!

Work has been crazy as it always is at this time of the year..I am just glad that we are almost past the holiday craze!

Christmas was intresting this year...Tis the season sometimes to bring out the worst in people and it hit our extended family this year. It is really hard to even talk about but I am just glad that it is behind us and we are able to move forward....and I feel truly blessed that my own little family is so blessed and so NORMAL! Being normal is so under-rated!

Tomorrow is the last day of this wonderful year...we have been so blessed this year with so many wonderful things. Some of the year highlights are Gavin turning 1...I can't believe my baby is already one..and he is the most adorable one-year-old on the planet! Jackson started 1st grade this year..that was tough with him being gone all day but I am so proud of him! Ashlee also started pre-school and it is a true joy to watch her learn, grow, and change right before our eyes. Chad is offically over at Mortgage now and he is loving is nice to see how happy he is again...he just loves sales! I am continuing to grow in so many areas..but scrapbooking has really been something that I continue to just love! I am just thrilled that I not only enjoy it so much but that I am making records or our life while doing it! It is so fun to look through the finished pages and my kids just love seeing themselves featured!

We truly are blessed! and that will be our legacy for 2006 and forward!

Happy New Year! to all of you!

Hurry up weekend!

Well today is Friday! and thank goodness! I have had so much going on that I haven't even had a chance to blog! GEEZ what is the world coming to! LOL

Today was an extremely stressful one thus far! I woke up this morning to work (I work from home) and tried to log in with my corded headset..and guess what..dd had cut the cord! So I had to call and let them know that I won't be able to make it!

Then DH ran out to the store to get a new headset. We tried several and none of them would work with my base unit. So we ended up getting another unit and headset. Now this was all in between DH taking multiple calls from clients trying to get lower mortgage rates. So needless to say it has been a stressful morning.

I then get a call from DH from his office stating that he accidentally took the keys to my Tahoe..I went on a hunt for the spare keys and ended up lucky..because I found them....oh the day has to be getting better

I have been really busy all month (so far) trying to get my Christmas shopping completed. So far I am doing pretty good. I also need to get things organized from my DS school Christmas party..since I am the room Mom.

SWG has been so much fun lately. We are having a new dt call and have had some great submissions. I can hardly wait to see all of them and then the judging begins. I just finished my dt assignments and I love how it came out. Rather I have completed 2 of my assignments..need to get moving on more. I am going to try to upload them here..
Well that worked easier than I that I good..slowly figuring out this blog stuff :)
Tonight we are going to make some reindeer sandwiches and tree cones with the kids for dinner..and I am sure that I will capture a few cute shots of them.
