Christmas was good to us...

We had a great Christmas got lots of goodies..

I got a new tripod for my camera.. Well actually I got two.. I took one back today..
Here is the first picture I took with it... Great picture huh..

Here is the gingerbread train the boys made before Christmas it turned out really cute.

Here are the cookies the boys made to leave Santa.

The Stockings hung by the fire with care..

Michael won the boys this new 4 wheeler in a drawing. He made them a scavenger hunt on Christmas morning to look for it.. It was funny watching them hunting for clues. finally they figured it out.

I hope everyone had a Great Christmas too!!

Blog challenge.. favorite Christmas song.

I love this song.

And love this video..Enjoy!

Fun Stuff..

We have been getting into the Christmas spirit around here.

Tuesday night we took the boys to the outside skate rink by the river and then went to look at Christmas lights.

Last night Michael and I went to his Company Christmas party.

Here are some pictures I wanted to share.

The lighting at the ice skate rink wasn't to good. but you get the idea.

These are a few houses we saw while out.

Mckay at the ice rink

Pic of us after the Christmas party.. I got to try out my new mini tripod.

Seth at the ice rink

Tree by the river at Winter Wonderland.

I think this house has every square inch of his yard and house covered in lights

Michael at the ice rink.. The guys had a lot of fun skating

Seth standing with an elf..

This is the tree again by the river with the bridge in the background.

And don't forget Santa is watching you.. 5 days left before Christmas.

I got this picture of Santa at the Riverpark Center..While he was watching the kiddos out the window. I'm sure Santa was paying close attention. I just love this photo.

Hi ya!

Not much going on here.. lots and lots of rain..

No snow.. just a tiny tad bit of a dusting it didn't even last till noon.

Just trying to get the house clean of a party we are having on Friday.

I'm bummed about one of the boxes I mailed last week. It got misdirected and still hasn't made it to its intended recipient..ugh

Hopefully it will make it there soon.

I did get my Secret Santa box from the SB friends website.. I think im going to wait and open mine on christmas.

The person I had got theirs on Friday.

Well I hope everyone enjoys their goodies.

Merry Christmas.

Baking cookies...

What was I thinking..

I can not bake a thing and it turn out right.

We made white chocolate chip cookies.

Why white chocolate chip cookies you say. Well Mckay doesnt like chocolate. He will eat white chocolate though..

OK so they turned out OK.

The boys thought they tasted fine.

We needed something to do since the Big TV isn't working.

Hopefully it will be fixed before Christmas.

TV technician is suppose to pick it up this week if it ever stops raining long enough.

I have been getting a few Christmas cards a day. Its starting to look like Christmas here. A little snow would be nice instead of all this rain.

The boys are counting down the days now. 6 school days until Christmas break.

Its beginning to look like Christmas..

Check it out.. While I was learning some new things about my camera I took some picture of the the Christmas tree.

All the decorations are up.. and finally all the boxes are put back in the attic.

It makes such a mess to decorate for Christmas.

I think I'm going to try and make a mini scrapbook about some of my ornaments.

SBF is having a month long challenge..

Merry Christmas everyone!!

I'm posting something new.. Surprised!!

OK here goes whats been up.

Well I have been spending alot of time at the scrapbook BB.. probably way to much time.

I have been sewing some things for gifts for Christmas..

And doing lots of embroidery. It helps with my scrapbook addiction.

I haven't scrapbooked to much lately though. I have altered a few things.

I actually have done more embroidery and sewing in the last few weeks than anything.

The washer broke. But at least Michael fixed it for a mere $15 that was great.

Although I would love to have one of those front loading washers. Wow they are expensive.

Michael and I spent the day shopping on Black Friday. We had so much fun as usual. We got lots of bargains too. We had lunch at Red Lobster it was yummy.

We are still in search for one big item for Seth's b-day which is Dec. 31st.

We had a great Thanksgiving. We just had a few people over. Jeffrey didn't make it home.

I don't think Jeffrey is going to make it home for Christmas either. Not sure what his deal is.. That is a whole new post in its self.

I'm waiting on this new cool photo printer hopefully it will come today. I have a few projects I would like to start with that.

I have also finally got a little program to resize photos. So now I can send them to you Aunt Ann.. Look for them soon!

OK enough I guess.

Blog challenge for this week is to finish this " All I want for Christmas is"

So "All I want for Christmas is to make and keep good friends" This seems to be hard to come by these days.

Everyone have a great weekend.

I will blog soon!!

This is what I did on Saturday..

Mckay and I went to the bank and Walmart first thing. I needed some fabric for a project. I did'nt get to work on the project though.

Did a bit of laundry. This still needs to be finished..

I saved all my photos to disk.. And I burned a CD for the gal with the yearbook of the cross country pictures. Man there where lots of photos. I took out some of the icky ones. Still it's pretty full she should have something on there she likes.

Then the boys and I made a deal. I would take them to the park if they let me take pictures of them. It worked out ok. I got several I love. I took a lot though.

The leaves here are past there peak im afraid. But I still have a few Pic I love.

I'm not really sure about the lighting on some.

Check them out..

Oh and I'm posting a few pictures of Halloween too.

So get ready to see lots of photos..
