Christmas 2009

Santa did good!! Nick got his Lionel Train and he was a very happy little man!!
Nick was helping Sissy unload her Christmas Stocking.
Brittany with some new eyeliner. I dont think it's possible to keep a teenage girl stocked with enough makeup!!

Nick scratching off his lottery tickets. He won $2.00!! Way to go Nick!

Just what every little Pekingese girl wants!! Chicken Jerky!
Oh, yes, this IS her happy face!!

Most of the time our house reminds me of a barrel of monkeys!! (see Brittany's 'matching' socks back there??)
She got a little tickled!!!

Ok, so maybe she got a LOT tickled!! It was an inside joke and we laughed about it quite a bit!!

I didnt include a picture of mine, but I got a GYPSY!!! YAY!! I LOVE you Santa!!

A couple of LO's

Here is what I made while at the Michigan crop. Not very much for 3 days of scrappin, but I was busy!! (that's my story and I'm sticking to it!)
Nick meeting McQueen!!

Cinderella's Royal Table, Whispering Canyon Cafe, Le Cellier, and just out and about. This one was a fun one to make!

Poor Nick, He was NOT the happiest camper while we were at Disney. I guess after 17 days he just wanted to come home! Not me, I wanted to stay another 17!!

Another one to use up a lot of photos! I had already made 3 double page layouts of the Cars characters and STILL had a ton of photos. That is until I finished this LO!!

Scrappin' in Detroit

Melissa's 40th Birthday Crop!! Wow, we had a wonderful time!! Several of us 'girls' from the Cricut board attended the crop and celebrated Melissa's monumental birthday!

Here is Kim and Sherry. Kim is a Michigander and a super sweetie and she had a little surprise for us..........................................SHE IS PREGNANT!! YAY!!!
Sherry is from Virginia and is absolutely one of the sweetest people you will EVER meet!! Love ya Sherry!!

Here is Cindy, she's comes to us from Pennsylvania. Cindy brought her daughter Stacie to the crop with her (she is a very sweet teenager!! no, that's not an oxymoron!) Cindy was the resident photographer at the crop. Hi Cindy!!!

Here is Tamara, a Detroit girl!! She just stopped by to see who all was there and to say Hi to everyone there! Tamara sells Close to My Heart goodies!! Hint, hint!!

Here is T-Nina, better known as 'The Queen' and 'The Most Beautiful Woman in the World'. Here she is sporting Melissa's tiara and sash and showing us how to properly wave. T is from Indiana.

Here is Laurie!! A true Southern Belle from deep in the heart of Texas!! Laurie was trying to get out of the shot but I still got her! Oh, I almost forgot. Laurie is SHY!! or at least that is what she says, the rest of us are not so sure about that!!

Another shot of Sherry. Doesnt she just look like the sweetest person ever?????

At last, the Birthday girl herself!! Melissa. or better known as EMA (Evil Melissa A*****) She will tell you that she 'knew' that I was coming to the crop, but I dont think she had ANY idea!! She was SHOCKED when she saw me!! Gotcha Melissa!!

And what does every 40 year old woman need??? A good stiff drink!! She had plenty!!

The Group shot! Tamara, Kim, Laurie, TNina, Stacy (me), Melissa, Sherry and Cindy!! What a wonderful group of women!!
I absolutely had a wonderful weekend. It was so much fun, I wish I could do it every year!!

On my way to Michigan!!

November 19, 2009
Today did NOT start out like I thought it would!! I got up at 4am, got ready, got to the airport by 5:30a and was getting ready for my 6:00 flight when the board showed our flight had been delayed until 6:50. Well ok, not too big of a deal. I went ahead got checked in and got settled into a very comfortable wing chair (not your standard chairs for an airport and the bathroom was......OMG very nice!! It had won awards!! Who would have thought that for such a small airport in Fort Smith, AR).
By 6:30 the flight had been delayed yet again, now it's an 8:30 flight to Memphis. I am getting tired of this already. I was supposed to catch my connecting flight in Memphis at 9!!! Back to the check in I go. The man in front of me got the last seat on a different flight. Great! I got sent to the AA counter and they were able to get me on their next flight to Dallas with a connecting flight to Detroit at 5:45. But on the bright side I did get bumped to first class!!

Finally in Dallas!! Now to just wait until 5:45 to get my connecting flight!

DFW airport is BUSY!! I was just a little more than bored waiting for the next flight. It would have been a lot better if I had someone there to talk to but I made it just fine. The flight to Detroit was good, I think I had 5 glasses of wine and was not concerned at all if the plane went down or not! That is great information for the next time I decide to fly on a tiny propeller plane!! More wine=less worry!


Yay for Halloween and Happy Birthday to ME!!
Nick picked out his own costume this year. He was excited about being a vampire! I dont know where he got it, It couldnt have been me talking about the vampires in the Twilight series!!

Here is cute stuff Nick being an evil Vampire!!
Brittany was too old to go Trick or Treating..........until she decided that she really wanted some candy and we were only going to go to our families houses. Her dad is still in Critical Condition in the hospital and all of that side of the family is staying in Ft. Smith, so this lifted her spirits a little I think.
She borrowed some of Nicks vampire make up and went as a Zombie.

OOOoooo Scary!
They both got entirely too much candy but they had a good time! I wonder what they will be next Halloween???

Sometime in September!!

We have been working hard to get the chicken pen finished up. The chickens dont seem to mind that their 'house' isnt done but they will start minding around December when the temperature starts dropping!!
Here we are getting started framing up the house. Even Brittany came out to help out!
Here Justin is putting the tin on the roof. He loves all the help that he gets from me! I tell him taking pictures is a hard job, but someone MUST document it!
Get busy there mister!!
Wahoo! The roof is done and the walls are done, enough that we can start building boxes and then get the front on and build a door!
There, Happy Chickens!! All 22 of them!!
Well I hope you liked the 'Chicken' post! (doesnt that rooster just look pretty?)

Catching up!

I am determined to catch up here. I am so far behind and for that I am sorry, so I am now going to bombard you with some quick posts to try to catch up a little!! You can all thank Melissa for giving me that little extra PUSH!! (or should I say SHOVE!)
