I am almost ready! LOL

I am getting everything ready to go. Tomorrow starts the holiday for me and the girls. Tomorrow is Joe's mom's and grandma's Christmas parties. That should prove fun and eventful. I did a pie and kiss cookies for their parties. I wrapped up the presents for them as well. I bought votive for all the ladies and mini bath sets. I figured it would do since their are so many of them and half of them to be honest I have yet to even meet. Of course they are going to be given from the girls. Joe was in charge of the "men's" gifts but of course you know how that goes.... LOL
But today I took more time for the girls and me. While Joe was at work we all played barbies and had a little picnic in their bedroom. (had to snack on the sweets to taste test!!) LOL I want to thank you all again, And i don't think I can thank you all enough for all the wonderful comments. It truly is um..... how to best put it- Boosting. Don't forget you can get the For the Boy add on today at JFTSOI before it goes into the store. So be sure to hope over there and grab it up while its still free. Also while over there, be sure to check out the challenges. I am hosting the Snap it Challenge and Lyric Challenge. Both in which you will get the chance to grab up part of my New Year's Kit for free. They end on the 31st so still plenty of time to get your layout entered for the posting gift! Here is preview of what you will get.....

Also- Just an advanced notice- I will be having a 30% off sale on the 29th!!!! So get ready as it will be just after all the new designs are placed in the shop!!!! This will also include Commercial Use items. So make your list of all the things you been wanting! LOL
I have a layout I did of my 2 oldest at Christmas time last year that I want to share with you all.
They were opening up gifts from Santa and were having a blast tearing up the paper. The kit Used in this layout is called Holiday Sparkle- A very beautiful design by Linda a.k.a Bonscrapatit Designs- O and its free on her blog!!!!!!

Hi Liz:
Hope you were able to do everything that needed to be done, if not remember there's always next year.LOL Enjoy Christmas day with your family and take lots of pictures! Look forward to seeing them. Also many thanks for your 12 days of Christmas, once the holidays are over I'll try and do some scrapping so that I can use all the wonderful gifts you gave. Love and Hugs to you, Hannah

We finally made it back in town. Whew, seemed like a longer trip than it really was. We had a great time though. The kids had a blast and made out like bandits!!! We almost didn't have enough room in the truck to fit it all to bring it home. Although, I would have liked to leave some of it with Grammie and know, all the stuff that makes noise. Ha Ha Ha, of course, that is all tha stuff that they gave the kids and made SURE it got packed with us. Anyway, I do hope that your Christmas was everything that you desired in your heart that it would be. And the girls got everything that they could have hoped for. You all deserve it. Looking forward to seeing what you have to offer up for the new year. I have a pic that I need to scrap for the Snap it challange over at JFTSOI but with the holiday's I haven't gotten to it yet. I am going to try and do that soon and post it if I can figure out how to do that. I am so bummed that I missed out on both of the last two goodies, I did try and get online but it was really bad. Oh well, was not meant to be. Take care and can't wait to see some more pic's of those little ones tearing into some new presents. Blessings to you.

Hi Liz,
i just read over at JFTSOI that you are or have been ill! Sorry to hear that. I hope that I didn't pass on our tummy bug on my daily visits (my Mum,brother, sis-in-law and niece got it though, luckily AFTER xmas). I hope you get better soon. And that you managed to have a great Xmas.
Hugs from me too

Just checkin' in on ya. It must have been quite a holiday!!! I read over at JFTSOI that you have not been feeling well. Definately know how that goes. My hubby brought it home before Christmas so we got to pass it around during the holiday while everyone has been home full time, except of course hubby, figures. Anyway, hope you are better now, take all the time you need and make sure you get better. Take care of yourself and those girls. Blessings to you.
