Its that time of year

I can't believe Thanksgiving is tomorrow- our family has so much to be thankful for this year!

and then... its Christmas time!!! Yayy- my favorite time of the year :o) I just love the whole season- the songs, the decorations, the feeling in the air... its truly the most wonderful time of the year!

And one part of it is the cards- that tradition of forcing your family to pose for a picture, struggling to get the kids to smile (or at least look at the camera without crying). Then you get that oh so beautiful picture made into a gorgeous Christmas card. After that you address your envelopes with all of your friends and families addresses until your hand is cramping and your fingers are numb (unless you get smart and finally print your addresses on mailing labels like I have never done, but say I'm going to every year!). After that you spend a bucket load of money on stamps, and voila... your cards are sent out :o)

Really, though, sending out cards is another of my favorite Christmas traditions, one that I can't wait to do! I'm working on a lot of cards right now... here are a ew of the designs I've done this year:

these are just a few of the designs I've done so far, although in different colors. And if you notice I used pictures from last year, so as not to ruin the surprise of everyones photo's!

I hope everyone has a blessed Thanksgiving!!

a pretty pink party!

We celebrated Brielles first birthday yesterday afternoon! It was a cozy,

rainy day for a pretty pink party :o)

Most of our families came to help us celebrate our little princesses first

birthday and we really appreciated having them there :o)

I made her cake using this recipe from mmm- yummy! and it was even yummier this morning with my coffee :o)

Happy Monday everyone... I'm hoping this week will bring lots of time for crafting for me. Its supposed to rain almost all week here so I'm looking at the silver lining and that means lots of indoor time=scrapbooking!

One year ago today....

...Our third little princess, Brielle, was born! She was born in
wee hours of the morning, after only 2 hours of labor. She
was our biggest baby at 7 pounds and 5 ounces.
I can't believe that was a year ago already! If I close my
eyes I can remember the feel of her newborn cuddlyness,
how she curled into a little ball, her wrinkly skin and
chicken legs... where on earth did the time go??!

my one year old, almost walking, still nursing, barely talking,

bald headed, already digging, well loved, sweetie pie :o)
