If you have kids you need to go here to let Santa send them a message through email.. Jameson just saw hers and she was so excited. here is the link SANTA Cole will get his when he comes home. I saw it on Kim's facebook and had to do it for our kids.. where is Santa the rest of the year?

Speaking of Santa he came to Mamo and Pappy's house to check up on the kids..Ivy got scared and was reaching for Richard... Just so fun to see the excitement on there faces..
here are some pics.

Merry Christmas to everyone.

This month I have been the guest design team for The Mosy Scrapper I made these with the kit for this month. I really enjoyed using all of the kit. I usually try to use kits up but most of the time I am not able to. This fancy pants paper is just so darling.. and it really is great for little girls. I have more things I made but they are for gifts so I will post those after Christmas..

Jameson had her program Tuesday night at school. It is really hard to get a good picture when you are so far away. And i really don't want to post pictures of other children so these are the ones i have from after the program. She had a Rudolph nose because they were the reindeer. They had the antlers on and every time they moved there heads the antlers were coming off.. It was hilarious..

A few pictures of the kids decorating the tree last week. We got a smaller tree and put it on a sturdy table so Ivy won't be pulling down all the ornaments. It is working pretty well ...
Trying to catch up some on what is going on with the kids. Christmas time is always crazy.

Last night was Jameson's program at school. They sang Christmas songs. I know that was not an easy to teach 4 and 5 year olds.. It was very cute and Jameson sang this year. Last year she would not even sing. She wasn't so shy this time. I will post those in the next couple of days too. Coles program is Friday but not sure what time yet.

Some pics from Cole's sleep over. I had set up my smores maker for the boys. They had a blast. Burning the marshmallows up and making the chocolate melt.. Then they got tired of making the smores and just ate the marshmallows. Boys will be Boys though.. I don't know what time they finally went to sleep.. They also thought of a great idea by telling ghost stories. I sneaked outside and banged on the window.. Scared them.. All i could here was Miss Tonya! Miss Tonya!! Too funny.

Only 9 days till Christmas.. I have everything done. Well except 2 more things i need to get. And the groceries for Christmas Morning. And some stocking stuff for David. And I have everything wrapped too.
Have a great day.

Saturday was the parade and it was so fun. Ivy just waved at everything and every one. To bad David wasn't smiling. Ivy had coffee all over her nose. David holding the girls Sunday morning for church. They had the same dress on.. they looked so cute..Jameson on the Church Christmas float with AJ from our church. She really didn't want to ride on the church float but as soon as she heard AJ was on the float she said Okay.. she really loves AJ.. off to get things ready for all the boys coming over tonight..

We finally got our tree up.. YEAH.. now i feel Christmas in the air.. We got a small tree so Ivy won't be pulling everything off the tree.. I will post those pics soon.

This morning we went to the Cookie Run at church. I love this idea.. But i really don't love the preparing for sure. I made 8 dozen cookie dough balls for the Cookie Run and in between all of that my new mixer died on me.. and i just got it.. I know i have to make more of those for the kids.. they would have fun rolling the balls up and i think it is better than the bourbon balls too.Tonight we are having the parade in town. Hopefully Jameson will stay on the church float. We will see.. i hope this year the big kids don't take over.. that is what happened last year... then the parents can't take pics and so forth.. David is off tonight so maybe he can get them to not tumble over the little kids. The get all the candy too.

Also next Sunday we are having Ivy's 1st birthday party SUNDAY DECEMBER 14 @ 3 o'clock. I didn't send invitations. i just feel so over whelmed by everything this year. Friday night Cole is having his sleepover with his friends.. so lots of entertaining.

I feel like i have been hit by a mac truck.. my body just aches. Christy thinks i slept wrong. i feel like i fell down a flight of stairs.. i think it is time to go to a chiropractor..

we still don't have our tree or any of the presents wrapped, maybe because i know Ivy will be in everything. i think we might have to get a small tree and put it on the play table so she won't be pulling things down. i just love the smell of a live tree with the combo of all the other christmas smells in the house.. (yankee candles are my bf)

later everyone..
hope bama wins today..even though i am not a fan..

I will post pics later this week from the parade if i can.. tonya Made with My Cool Signs.Net

This week we made our first gingerbread house. All i can say is it really isn't anything any of us would live in.. But this is our first so maybe next time will be better.. i am thinking a glue gun next time to mend the house together and then add all the icing.. so here are some yummy photos. we had icing everywhere too.

I also just discovered that Ivy is getting 2 teeth in up top.. she has 2 in the front on the bottom.. Guess she will have more teeth to eat her birthday cake with..

Very Busy week so far. Last week I had Dalton over while Tracy was at the hospital with Joy. So i got them each a pumpkin to carve.. They had lots of fun trying to get all the goo out.. so here are some photos.. Ivy sat in the middle of the table and watched everything. It was a mess and after wards we toasted the pumpkin seeds. Yummy.

Tracy's sister Joy was in a very bad wreck.. She is improving everyday.. Please keep her in your prayers..She has a long journey ahead of her.. here is her blog to keep you updated on her progress

Happy Birthday to David. It was on Monday. I made him his favorite cake Red Velvet on Sunday. Very delicious. He got the normal stuff.. Clothes.. what is there to get for a man that doesn't want anything? It is very hard. We celebrated Sunday night at Richard and Lillians. Very Delicious dinner.

I am totally swamped..
what was i thinking taking on so many projects at one time?
i finished some of them. I am getting pretty excited about going to Athens for Thanksgiving. I have also started a store at I haven't opened it yet because i don't have anything yet to add. i think after Christmas i will have plenty of things in there. If you have never been to Etsy it is a cool place to purchase things for Christmas and it is also helpful for the sellers too. I try to buy things for gifts there.

Here is some of my newest stuff. Some of it i can't show.. so will have to show them after Christmas.

I have been busy.. I entered my hat into the Guest design team for December at
The Mosy Scrapper and i got it.. And i think Christa lives in Florida so i got my kit and went to work. Finish one layout today and working on some other things. I have about 5 projects going on right now. And so here is some finished stuff i can show you all..

Half Pint is what David calls Ivy.. very sweet

this is a shadow box that i did for The Mosy Scrapper.. the week #4 challenge.
it isn't the best photo because of the plastic on the cover.. you can open it to look at all the goodies.. a lot of glitter that you don't see.. like on the trees and the smoke..

okay i think that will do it for today.. i haven't posted any layouts in a while..So for those that don't enjoy that please excuse this post.
