So Lazy!

I am having such a lazy day today. These days are nice sometimes. My 6 year old is home from school sick, he was up all night. Now he has quite the burst of energy, him and Hensley are driving me nuts!!! So in my laziness this morning I scrapped a new layout and then turned it into a quick page for a Quick Page contest at ScrapMatters.

Christmas Pictures

Pictures went so good today. My husband had almost talked me out of getting all the kids pictures taken but I decided to brave it anyway. They turned out so cute, I can't wait to start on my Christmas Cards. After we took them to see Santa and then when we came home we put up all the Christmas decorations. I love Christmas lights.

Isn't this just the cutest picture? I have to brag but I think he is just the cutest baby ever. But seriously, would you even know if your kids weren't cute. HeHe!!!

New Tempate

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Mine was really nice. Kind of makes me feel bad about my previous blog posting. I did not go out this morning! The last place I wanted to be was at stores on the busiest shopping day of the year. I am going to attempt pictures tomorrow. I really want pictures of all the kids. I don't have any with Landon and the kids. We have Hunter this weekend so we will see how it goes. Hensley does not cooperate for pictures.

I made a new template that I wanted to share. It is very simple but you can add a lot to it.

Excited for the Holidays!

I absolutely love the holidays. As soon as Thanksgiving is over I start decorating for Christmas and all that fun stuff. Thanksgiving is an ok holiday for us. My husbands family is a little, oh how do I say it nicely, dysfunctional! Ha Ha, not trying to be mean but I am just surprised sometimes by how they act. My parents are very quiet people and we never fight about anything. My husband is a sweet heart and so is his dad but throw his mom, sister and my nieces in the mix and they are just not happy unless there is some drama going on. They even will make stuff up if it's been a little too quiet and peaceful. My step-son is just as bad. The older grandchildren will have a contest to see who can feel the most sorry for them in their hard hard lives. Everything can be going along just fine and then my step-son will tell my mother in law that he is going to live with his mom because he has it too hard at his dad's house. We are so mean, we make him do chores, and he has brothers and a sister he has to deal with and if he gets in trouble he is disciplined. I know, someone call CPS. Didn't mean to go on a rant, just thinking about Thanksgiving. Last year we didn't even eat until 7pm. Juice was spilled in the oven so we spent a few hours outside because the smoke alarms were so loud we couldn't stand to stay in the house. It is kind of funny to think back now, it's a good thing we live in Arizona or it would have been kind of cold outside. So I guess we will see how it goes. I guess I kind of got off of my original subject. It is kind of different here in AZ though.The weather is still really nice so you have to remind yourself that it is Christmas time. There are Christmas lights on Palm Trees and Cactus. Growing up in Utah, it was so cold and every year we would go to Temple Square in Salt Lake City and walk around and then go across the street to the Crossroads Mall and shop. I still can't stand the cold, but snow is so pretty. ScrapMatters has a new Christmas Kit in their store called Holly, Jolly, Ho Ho Ho by Andilynn Designs. I used it on my Blog Banner. I absolutely love this kit. I love the Holly Berries and the little tags that say Naughty and Nice. It is such a fun kit.

New Template

Just a quick blog since it is late. I have extended a challenge to my Digital Scrapbooking Group on Cafe Mom to create their own template. So I wanted to display my template and make it available for download for those who are interested.

And here is my page

Exciting News!

I really need to be better about posting blogs. I have fun news today though. I applied for the CT Call at ScrapMatters and found out today that I am a new member of their Creative Team! I'm very excited. They have a new, fun site that I am excited to be a part of. They have some really fun challenges going on. I am really excited about the Digi Journal Challenge from DesignerBrittney. She has a fun template to go along with it and some awesome ideas. I really need to get going on it. There is also a fun template challenge from HappyScrapGirl and I received a template for a Birthday Card for participating. I will show you both of the templates as soon as I scrap mine.

Landon is doing much better. He still takes the medicine but doesn't throw up anymore. He is sleeping really long stretches at night so I've had quite a few nights that he has slept through the night. He is sleeping in his own room now, my baby is getting so big.

The kids had a lot of fun on Halloween. Hayden was a pirate, Hensley was a Pirate Princess and Landon was a Pea Pod. Hunter was with his mom that night and I guess hung out with friends. I have not scrapbooked my Halloween pictures yet either. I am so behind!

So, I will try to be better about keeping up on my blog!
