It's Christmas time!

Yesterday was fun! First, thank you for all your well wishes! It made my day!!! Brian had the day off and I got to shop (although I'm not usually a big buyer)- I bought some stuff from the craft store, a cool new shirt and some yummy smelling stuff from Bath and Body Works! It's their new fragrance, Vanilla Noir! "# Our exclusive Vanilla Noir fragrance is a tantalizing scent that transforms Madagascar vanilla into pure glamour
# Key fragrance notes: Madagascar Vanilla, Dark Vanilla Bean, Black Plum, Bergamot Orange and Warm Musk". Makes me think of all those film noir movies Brian watches!
We walked around the mall with the kids in the afternoon, just relaxing. They played in the little play area and then we all ate out at Panera Bread! I had soup and: Orchard Harvest
Field greens, crisp romaine, dried cherries, fresh pears, Gorgonzola, toasted pecans & our cherry balsamic vinaigrette. Then, it was home for How the Grinch Stole Christmas and a Strawberry Shortcake birthday cake!

and...ya. we're in the spirit! We put up our tree Friday after Thanksgiving! It took me a while to track down my Christmas music, but that didn't stop us from busting out the Christmas village, tree and other decorations! The kids loved it! Alexander especially loved hanging the ornaments. He put them all on one small section of the tree, but I just let him do whatever he wanted. His little face was so happy, proud and excited. It's amazing to watch your children as they create their own memories of things, especially Christmas. I pray that they will remember these times as happy and unforgettable moments... I sure will... ok, enough of the sappy mommy.

Everyone I know is super busy this time of year... I honestly have not been scrapping and creating as much as normal. Tonight, for instance, I studied for my ACLS recertification class that I'm taking next week! FUN.

but, I did get to see the the new kits for December at Label Tulip. no sneaks for you yet, but I'll letcha know! make sure you check out the stamp and previous kits on sale!

I do have one wee card I can share... hope you all are having a blessed day, Charity
