One more Day in 2008!

I just had to post about it. Have you noticed the changes going on 'round here? what better way to ring in the new year, than with change. i still have to do all my links along the side yet {sigh} no one took me up on my million dollar offer to do it for me so looks like i have to get that done this weekend.

so starting next year, whenever i post on here, i will mentions something i am thankful for. anyone want to join me?!??!?!

right now i am thankful for bed and niquyl ;)

we are uploading early @ Serendipity Scrapbooks. I got to use some review item goodies {sign up for the newsletter here to see my reviews on them} including Dream Street Papers and those FUN, FUN--did i say FUN?-- Basic Grey Obscure chippies.

this is a layout of my sister shooting apples at the farm this year when she came to visit. sorry the photos are a bit scraptastic but i was peeing when i took these b/c i was laughing so hard.


this next one is of max. i am max. hear me roar.




here is the journaling: max is our gentle giant. he is a big baby and barks at everything; card doors, door bells and just your run-of-the-mill loud noises. he loves to snuggle on the coush {shhhhh!} and put his head on your feet to keep them warm. he is a great simmer and he is one of the smartest dogs i have met. he knows how to play with small dogs, it's like he knows he needs to be gentle with them. now, if we can just get him to vacuum...

and a card...thought this was a cute way to say congrats! i cut my mini alphas to fit the ribbon.
