I hope everyone has a fabulous New Years - Christmas came and went so fast - it was kinda sad - i've spent the day taking down Christmas (makes me wish i didn't go all out on the decorating!) But when next year comes i'm sure i'll be doing the same thing. I will post soon our Christmas pictures. I was such a fun day - our disney vacation gift was a hit - other than Baylee asks me everyday when we are going to disneyland and asks heavenly father in her prayers to be able to go to Disneyland soon. How cute is that!!

after the dinner - everyone chillen out playing the Wii!So i have a new love! It's called FABRIC - who would have thought that i had enough love to share with Scrapbooking - but its true. I love it - its almost like patterned paper to me - i just can't get enough. As for what i'm doing with the fabric - here is some of what i'm doing. These fun flowers that i took me a few weeks (not kidding) to create. More or less because i was playing with different ways to make them! I was inspired by this post from Elizabeth Kartchner. I have made a few of those flowers too and put them on a backpack for baylee for her dance shoes but i'm not quite done. Anyway - fun fun - and i think i will be playing with Fabric alot more in the future!
Here is a not so great picture of me wearing the flowers (they are pinned on). But the battery in my camera was dying so it wouldn't focus well.
And finally - here is a layout i did for the Lily Bee blog - a year in review type layout. I really really struggled with it but happy with the way it turned out - kind of fun to have this many different pictures on one layout. Make sure to head over there - there are lots of giveaways still going on!! So - i'm really feeling unprepared for Christmas this year - i really thought i was on top of things but the time has just slipped away from me - i can't beleive its next Friday - what is up with that. I'm hoping even though i have 3 parties and a dance recital in the next 4 days that our family will still make time to enjoy it and remember why we celebrate Christmas in the first place - i hope all of you are enjoying the holidays!

Isn't this just the cutest little guy EVER! This is my nephew Hudson - Karie just had his pics taken and i couldn't help but share - he is adorable! I miss him. I think i am kinda clinging to this little dude - i've just started getting the baby bug recently and we all know i don't have the plumbing for more babies soooooooo i have to just enjoy the babies around me. On Dean's side there are 3 babies under 1 too (i'm actually a great aunt) - so they are all around me - mabye thats why i'm struggling.
I hope everyone has a fabulous day! I have lots of preparing to do this week - a party almost every night until next Tuesday - so off i go - trying to keep the Christmas Spirit without getting buried in it!
Go check out Lily Bee's blog - they are starting a 12 days of Christmas so make sure to go comment to win some great giveaways!!

It was Ethan's birthday yesterday and and we are partied out. Wednsday he had a friend party at Toads and then last night family came over - i will have to share pictures later - just wanted to wish him a Happy Birthday - i love that kid to pieces - he tests my patience more than the other two combined but he is also my most sentimental and helpful too - so i guess its a wash. I'm just grateful to have him in our lives, life wouldn't be the same without his personality, his disease - which teaches us everyday to be grateful for our blessings.
