There seemed to be 2 themes in gifts for Bryant this year. First there would be Star Wars. Starting with the mini clone troopers:
Sorry, there are no pics of me, though I did look pretty good Christmas day. I did my best to keep appearances up in front of all the family. Bryant had a great visit from Santa (I guess he was good!) and his grandparents and got lots of cool presents. We survived and now heres to a healthy New Year!!!

Today I found out through Aleida's in-laws blog, the verdict of the young woman that took my sweet friends life. This is the actual quote from the blog:
This is truly upsetting and very unfair! No punishment at all! I know that she will have to live with this for the rest of her life, but I feel that is not enough. What would be a fair punishment?? I do not know. But, to walk free? I do not understand. I guess that I never will.

I made it with papers from the FAB Scarlet Lime November kit. Loved these colors and was immediately drawn to them:

I thought that I would share some happy snow moments from past years. Bryant can't wait to pull the sled out. Though we do not have any big hills, he makes due with what we do have and still has a blast:

I also made some cupcakes for our Christmas potluck at work tomorrow. Who doesn't love a good cupcake. These definately make me smile. I even had 2 extras that would not fit in the container. Bryant and Daddy sure were happy to scoff those up. LOL!!
So just remember during this time of the year, as hectic as it may be, take time out for yourself. Even if for a few minutes and enjoy all the special little moments.

Here is one view of our backyard. Lots of ice:
Our power is back on now,and we have heat. Yay!! Tomorrow it will probably look like nothing ever happened. It sure was one heck of a way to get a 3 day weekend. Happy Friday!!

Since I was in the 'cookies for Santa' mood, I thought that I would share this old favorite of mine from the year before. So simple, but still one of my faves!

The first day shows a view of my little Christmas tree on my office window ledge. I love the veiw. Simply makes me smile:
Day two was a fun day that Bryant and I made some really yummy Christmas cupcakes. He was SO excited! Day three was a happy (spur of the moment) pic taken at the grocery store. I am sure the other shoppers thought that we were crazy snapping pictures, but that was one huge (5 lbs-$25) chocolate bar:

I was inspired by a sketch from Donna Downey (for the LO above), in this AWESOME new book of hers:
I also, have been holding onto these pics from last year. A few stolen moments of Bryant with Santa before the actual picture was taken. This sketch comes from the ' Got Sketch Mini' free online class. This is the mini challenge that went up before the actual class sketches. Loved this basic sketch and plus I got to use my Teresa Collins Tis the Season papers:
This is my take on the actual first sketch from the GS Mini class. These are some old pics of me that I came across and I literally thought 'Who's that girl?' I LOVED this sketch from Janna Wilson ! Plus I got to use my new Pink Paislee Vintage Moon paper. AWESOME!!
So double score for me. I got some old pictures scrapped AND I got to use a lot of my new favorite scrap products. Well, off to work some more on my December Daily album and hope to post pics of it soon. Have a wonderful weekend!!

The challenge this time around is to create a LO or card based on this ad below:
Very different and I went for it. I am really happy with the result. So, come play along and challenge yourself. We would love to see what you come up with! :-)
