Now that Halloween is over....

It's time to think about Christmas!!

http://www.scrapbooksetc.com/theme/holidays/christmas/fun-and-festive-ornaments/

So I did this while I was at work the other day (night shift of course)...I think I'm going to make a few more and add them to Christmas baskets which I am planning on making!! They are still not complete, I still need to bling them up a bit, maybe some glitter, some fake snow....something along those lines!  Give it a try...follow the link above and see how you do, they are super easy!


Have a great weekend!

MIA...I've been on Vacation! (lots of pics)

I know I'm been MIA...I took almost the whole month of August off for vacation!  And let me tell you it was quite the Vacation, it was a good vacation mind you, but a few things did happen to me!

OK..so lets start!  First off we bought this camper almost 2 yrs ago

well, we were finally able to find a spot to park it.  You see that truck that's hauling is not our truck, we bought the camper and my Kia Sorento if definitely not going to haul a 5th wheel!  But we wanted to have it somewhere for the season anyways...so we found a campground and it's finally there!  here's a few pics of us at the campground!





and of course this last one ..is me sitting in the boat, letting them do all the work!!  LOL

OK well...some things on vaca weren't all that bad, I had some beautiful beach weather, bon fire nights and lots of relaxing time off!!  The last two weeks were not going my way!  First I get stung by a hornet, I ended getting Strep throat...well that's not the end of it! Well, it was the last weekend of my vaca and some friends were having a 70's party!  We had a blast!


That's me with the yellow dress!  Yup! I had a few, but for me a few is 4 coolers & a few shots of Sourpuss (wow that stuff packs a punch)

We had a great time all night....until this happened!!




I broke my foot! Yup...broke it!!!  LOL  After not going out for nearly 3 yrs, this is how my night ended.  OK...how did it happen!  Well, I was heading out to my truck to get my flip flops cause the tall books that I had on were now killing my feet...well.  Went out the front door, talking to a friend, no front lights on, plus I don't think the drinks I had helped either.  Well, her front step is a little higher than your normal front step, and when I stepped off the step, I ended up rolling my ankle, and hearing a  crack on the top of my foot!!!!  That pretty much ended my night!  So I went home, went to bed, went to the ER in the morning...yup... broke my foot!

But I did get a few LO's and a card done while on Vaca...LOL





And that my friends is how my August Vacation went!! Hope everyone has enjoyed their summer so far, there is not much left of it!!

I thought this was the cutest thing!

I was reading the Cosmo Cricket Blog when I came across this entry:

The Girl in a Whirl (originally by Vicki Gunther)
Look at me, look at me, look at me now!
You could do what I do if you only knew how.
I scrapbook my memories one hour each day;
I bake, I upholster, I scrub, and I pray.
I straighten my craft room nicely and neatly;
I speak to my little ones gently and sweetly.
I help in their classrooms! I sew all they wear!
I drive them to practice! I cut all their hair!
On all their school subjects I am an authority;
I teach them to organize life by priority.
I draw and I paint! I bless with my talents!
My toilets all sparkle! My checkbooks all balance!
Each week every child gets a one-on-one date;
I attend all my meetings (on time! never late!)
I'm practicing my serve of the tennis ball,
But that is not all! Oh, no. That is not all,
I track my bad habits 'til each is abolished;
Our bed sheets are ironed! My toenails are polished!
Our family get togethers are always delightful;
I teach my children lessons both fun and insightful.
I do exercise faithfully, too.It's easy to do all the things that I do!
I rise each day early, refreshed and awake;
I take my friends the things that I bake!
I read to my children! I help all my neighbors!
I bless the community, too, with my labors.
I grow herbs and I cook menus gourmet;
I never procrastinate, I never delay!
I chart resolutions and check off each goal;
Each night I take my husband for a nice stroll.
I can home-grown produce each summer and fall.
But that is not all! Oh, no. That is not all,
I write in my journal! I conduct a youth choir!
Each day, I write 'thank you's' to those I admire.
My kids will be responsible by the age of fourteen!
They all get straight A's! And their bedrooms are clean!
I have a home business to help make some money;
I always look beautifully groomed for my honey.
I go to the gym at least once a week;
I change the car's tires! I fix the sink's leak!
I grind my own wheat and I bake all our bread;
I have all our meals planned out six months ahead.
I keep our pantry stocked with every supply;
My shopping for Christmas is done by July!
That is what the girl said, then she dropped dead!
