It has been a crazy week as I am sure it has been for everyone ! busy busy busy! parties, school stuff, cleaning...fa la la la la....

we had my Nana's Christmas party this past Saturday and we got to drive home in 1" of sleet! I do love winter and snow but the ice I can do without.

Hope all is well and everyone is having a safe Holiday Season so far!

Here are some sneak peaks for the Happy Scrappin' Scrapbooking upload tomorrow!

Friday, December 07, 2007 is freezin' here in PA lately but i love the snow so i can't complain! even though owen is obsessed with jumping in it every chance he gets, lol. we are off to DC this weekend to do some site seeing. Brian has never been to the Vietnam Memorial, seen the pencil, or any of the monuments so he wants to go before my sister moves further south in VA.

So funny story. I am washing my hands and the soap was low and i didn't remember to get any at the store so i put some water in it so it goes a bit further. well, later that day i wash my hands, use the pump soap and it squirts and i don't have any on my hands, squirt again..nothing? what the heck? so i use a different sink and the heck with it. of my kid's moms tells me i have "stuff" all over my shirt that looks like, well, NOT soap! HOW EMBARASSING. Here it squirted below my belly button, an area i haven't seen for weeks now and i had no idea it was there. Lovely, just lovely.

so are some projects i worked on for my GDT spot over at BusyBee Scrapbooking. Love that place...have been hanging there for awhile now and it is a lot of fun. Heather has some great sales everyday for the month of December and you can get elfed! Which means you get a 5 dollar GC to the store! And i was the first one! yeah for me :)

Hope everyone is getting ready for the holidays! Owen was at my parents for the weekend, then this weekend we are off to DC, the following weekend we got to my Nana's to celebrate Christmas and then well, it is Christmas! wowzers...

the serendipity scrapbook crop was this weekend and it was a blast. i love being a part of them, issuing challenges, being able to participate and just chattin' away with all the girls. i didn't have much on my plate this weekend so i got to enjoy it a bit more...oh yeah and hit some of Kristen's FAMOUS blue light specials...50% maya road stamps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i worked on two challenges...the first was a sketch from the wonderful Lucy Chesna and the second was to use 3 diff rubons "don't rub me the wrong way", LOL, i am a sucker for a good catch phrase on a challenge. I used my very first Scarlet Lime kit for these layouts. They really are unbelieveabley {sp?} gorgeous.

I know you are probably thinking i spelled "mom" wrong but that is an inside joke in my family, that is how owen spells it and he refuses to believe that I could be right.
