December 30, 2012

I can't believe I've done it again...let far too long go between blog entries...
It's not like I don't think about posting,  just a couple days ago, I was thinking about an entry I could write while I washing dishes, but didn't get over to the computer. I guess that's the thing, life is busy and this month busier than most in an attempt to accomplish so much.
Cedmeber has come and nearly over, I didn't get it all done (whatever the definition of 'it all' is!) but I was really happy with how content I was with what I did do
...the gingerbread houses, advent calendar, Cary's 12 Beers of Christmas found, gifts wrapped and  under the tree as a surprise a few different mornings to be shaken and squeezed in anticipation, Christmas movies and popcorn nights, baking, Christmas plays attended, concerts, recitals, we even slept under the Christmas tree on the 21st. Sure, there are still some decorations that never came out of their boxes, some baking not completed, and Christmas cards not written (okay, so this, I'm a bit sad about, as I actually have about 20 made from classes I could have addressed and sent off. My excuse there, sadly, was the family photo that needed to be found and printed to enclose...I even purposely posed us in front of a fabulous landscape in Salzburg..but the lighting was all off. I'm planning on writing the letter in the coming week and getting things ready to send off for Valentine's ...or maybe Groundhogs Day! haha)
I wish I'd have shared this song by Amy Grant earlier for you all to's a real favourite of mine. Our piano teacher has 3 beautiful Girls. Sometimes at her Recitals she asks them to sing, as a special treat. They sang this a couple years ago...maybe it's more special to me because of this. Tag it somehow and save it for next year!

I'm busily finishing off Swaps for Stampin'Up! 's Leadership in Florida. I joined 4 different organized swaps. Be sure to pop back by to see all the gorgeous examples I'll have to share!

I do hope you enjoyed your Christmas and the Holidays! Wishing you a very Happy New Year!




  1. Wishing you the very best in the new year, Laurie! I look forward to seeing your swap cards for Florida!
