with us at Izzy's along with her daughter Joelle. So with her and
Joelle, Penny and my niece Lacey it is a family affair sorta speak.

I am Thankful For:

So Thanksgiving didn't quite go as planned but I am
thankful for my sister Teresa and brother Jim who I didn't
get a picture of. Anyways Danuta was gracious enough to give
Penny and I time off to be with our parents this year.
However mom said she invited our brother and sister to come
see us at Izzy's since we have always had to work so we decided
we would go anyways and meet them for lunch. And then I would
make a dinner at home for Noah and Jordan. Anyhow mom ended
up being sick and her and dad stayed home so here we were at Izzy's
w/o them. But that was okay because we got to spend time with family

I came home and made a this. I was thankful that Noah came
and stayed three nights with us. He had to work very early hours
Black Friday.. It was so nice to have him home. I miss him so much.

Today was family pictures at Classy Capture. So we
took mom to get her hair done. It was like extreme
makeover I cried alot. Dont know I am getting more sappy
as I get older. She always says I dont know why my kids treat
me so good. Well it is easy she treated us that way we learned
from the best. I cant wait to share the family pictures. My brother
Bill and sister Pat were missed. It is so hard to get everyone
available at the same time. This is my Christmas present to self.
This is me getting hair curled. Jordan is across from me getting
hers done. Mom way over under the dryer. Penny to get hers later.

She was laughing at me cause I was crying.

Love this one. I am thankful for memories, pictures and the
scrapbook yet to come.

I am thankful for my grandaughter my saving grace.

I am thankful for both of my girls.
I am thankful for each day God gives me!
I am blessed...........

a frame already at Goodwill. This was on Brittany's wall.

We are going to start trying to craft nights.. Brittany hosted the
first one and cooked us dinner.. so good! And then we started making

It is like going to her shop, such cute things I just want to shop..

Love my sister trying to make something.. She really gets into

I learned how to make this wreath. I didn't get it finished
because craft night was cut short due to an electrical issue.
But I think I can finish this someday..
This is what it should look like when it is done. We had a great
time look forward to doing it again..
On a side note wishing my friend Heidi a get better wish.. Thinking of

One More Layout

Five layouts in a weekend that is an accomplishment for me!
This was the day of my birthday last year in Jamica.. I was
proud of myself for putting my money and ticket on here as
Jordan got home last night and Londyn couldn't of been more
happy. She is so funny lately with her one liners. Her new words
are perfect and wonderful. Today she got an owie and asked me
to pray. How cute is that. We pray everynight for grandma great
to be all better and have comfort and peace.. Tonight she told her
mommy to lose her attitude. Where that came from I dont know.
Have a good night.. Going to watch Hawaii five-O. Those two guys are
sooo cute....

Several from the last few weeks. Need to put in albums.

Love doing last yrs Christmas photo's. Bi-Mart had this Noel
line from Making Memories. Love the vintage look.


My attempt at distressing..


Not sure how i feel about this. Should i have left it alone...
It is growing on me.. I see all this cool stuff on blogs but I just
dont have the knack.. It has been w/o knobs for three weeks.
Finally got it all together today.
Dogs groomed today. Scruffy is really just about 100% blind now.
He runs into the door and furniture but most of the time does ok.
Cant hear real well either.
Happy Belated Birthday Brittany. Had good intentions of posting
on your special day but atleast we got to see you.. Cant wait for craft
night Wednesday.. Enjoy your party tonight.

Up early today as the contractors were suppose to be here to work on
leaks (several). Got all ready and they called no show due to rain.
Jordan will return tomorrow from another trip.. Yeah!!!
Took Londyn to Elmers for Breakfast, hit the grocery store early,
made it to Vintage Market to see Britt, and then on to see grandma
great.. What a day.... Hope your enjoying yours!!!!!

Lots of Misc/ Christmas layouts

It is hard to see this but I cut all the cardstock stickers out
put on kraft paper and cut them out, and used 3d glue for
pop outs. Loved how they turned out..

Penny saw this idea on a blog and did it herself. It was so cute
so I had to do it.. Great idea Pen...

Had to show that it is not all fun and games with her she
is a normal child and throws her fair share of tantrums.

Thinking of the Rolling Stones song" Cant always get what you
Want" ! Love this pout though..
Congrats to you Kate. Dont know all the details but Mina was born this
morning. Cant wait to see her.. Off to bed..

We do not remember days we remember moments!
