Well, we had a wonderful Christmas Eve and a wonderful Christmas day!  Being away from the family is very difficult this time of year.  We are so thankful to have moved into such a great neighborhood and to be surrounded by great friends! Tonight we are having a party at our house with our surrounding neighbors, 6 families!!!  It is going to be FUN!

I have managed to keep a couple of layouts listed during the hustle and bustle of the holidays.  A task that wasn't that easy.  :)  I think the part that wasn't easy was actually staying out of my office..  I DREAM scrapbooking!  :)  Here is what I have listed this week.  I did change my listing days to accommodate the holidays since they both fell on my regular listing night of Wednesdays..

I was also able to get a couple boarder, piecings and photo mat sets finished.  I LOVE doing these as a way for my customers to "catch up" on their scrapbooking for the year.  My original intention was to do 4 or more sets a week - haven't reached that goal so I may continue doing a couple through January.

Here is our official Christmas photo for 2008....  Not an easy task this year.  Tyler just didn't want to take the picture and I swear he was making a face in every other photo.  I was concentrating on the girls to make sure they were looking cute and little did I know what Tyler was doing.
So the family letter is done and waiting to be printed, I have sent the pictures to Walgreens to get printed - love how easy some things are - the family video is 2/3 done, the Christmas shopping is no where done, and I have a few things to catch up on and then I am going to take a week off.  I haven't done that in a long time - thank goodness I love what I do!  :)  I am sure I will sneak into my office to do something, how can one really stay away from scrapping!  
From my family to yours, MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!
I couldn't resist putting this one in....  Sorry Tyler, maybe the next time, you won't make it so hard!  :)

Santa, can I please have more hours in the day? :)

Yep, that is what I would ask for.  :)  Sometimes I just wish I could have one extra hour a day. During the holiday season I would love two!  Today I spent quite awhile on the phone with the postal service.  Our mailman drove right by my house and didn't pick up my scheduled pickup.  I know that he looked my way and saw the size of my outgoing mail and did not want to touch it.   I finally got someone to come back out, at 5:30 pm to pick them up.  Guess I am tipping the mailman a little more this year.  :)

Here are my listings for tonight.  I really do love doing the Christmas house series. I have gone through 3 bottles of snow and two bottles of glitter in the last couple of weeks.  I walk out of my office everyday with glitter on my clothing, face and hair.  :)

I could not get the third one to load!  I will try again in the morning.
