top 10 of 2010

Looking back at all the projects that I did for 2010, I am a bit surprised that I did more than I thought I did!! Of course, I do have some favorites. In no particular order, here are my favorite projects/layouts for 2010...

I would like to thank each and every one of my blog readers for visiting my blog. I wish you all a very safe and happy new year!!

P.S. Be sure to come back tomorrow because I have a secret that can finally be let out of the bag!!!

four Christmases

This year we had four Christmases. Yes, it was fun, yes, it was exhausting, and yes, we are all still trying to recover from them!!

Our first "Christmas" was just the four of us. Since Daddy was working nights during Christmas week we decided to celebrate a few days early, before he went back to work. Santa always makes a special trip for the kids even when we have to celebrate early with Daddy.

So five nights before the big guy actually comes, the kids left out cookies and milk for his "special" stop.

Can you see the excitement on their faces? Bekah kept "testing" the milk to make sure it was okay :) Silly girl. The next morning Gavin was so excited to see that Santa had left a partially eaten cookie. Apparently Bekah was excited too, but for a different reason. When she thought nobody was looking she ate the rest of the left over cookie!

Christmas Eve, the actual Christmas Eve, was a very big day for us. For me, actually. It was the very first time in the 34 years of my life, that I spent Christmas with my Dad. I sure was missing out :)

My Dad's side of the family is huge! Gigantic!! There were over 40 adults and teenagers there and probably about 20-30 kids. We all had a great time and didn't get home until 1:30 am!! Crazy, I know!

Christmas day we spent with my mom's side of the family. It was definitely more low key than Christmas Eve!! And it was very different not having Papa with us to celebrate. He was extremely missed and I know that he was looking down at us from Heaven.

Today we spent the afternoon with my mother in law and opened presents and ate pizza. It was a nice, quiet get together and the kids had fun opening another round of gifts.

Although we had a wonderful Christmas, er Christmases, I am so glad that it's over. Time to take the decorations down for another year. Time to clean the house after the holiday bomb. Time to get ready for a fresh start to a new year!

Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!!

Scrappy Chics January Reveal

January's kit at Scrappy Chics is one of my favorites!! It features October Afternoon and Cosmo Cricket. I love the retro feel of the kit.

This first layout that I did is of an old picture of my grandparents. I love how this line went so well with the retro picture.

The second layout is of Miss Bekah at Gavin's 4th birthday party. She was so cute eating all the fruit off of Daddy's fruit kabobs!!

Be sure to stop by Scrappy Chics and check out her fabulous kits!!

feeling sassy

My friend Aimee is on the Design Team for Sassy Lil''s a great sketch blog and I've been wanting to give it a try. I fell in love with the sketch for October is my take on it...

I love the color combination on green and purple. It goes perfect with Miss Bekah's shirt!

I'm so glad that I have such great subjects to scrapbook! As you can see, they definitely keep things VERY interesting :)

the scar

This weeks prompt at Scrap that Baby is all about the ouchies and boo-boos. I chose to do a layout on a subject that I have wanted to scrap about ever since it happened...Bekah's scar.

Journaling reads:

When people ask about the scar above your lip, we always tell them you were hit by a buffalo...It was actually a frozen package of buffalo meat that fell out of the freezer. You just happened to be on the floor next to the fridge and became the helpless victim. The corner of the package made a perfect cut into your skin. At 9 months old you already had a cool story to tell!!

Thankfully, her scar has faded and you can barely see it. I felt so bad that it happened...But we love telling people she was hit by a buffalo!!
