I can't help myself............

if it weren't for Dean, I would have this house decorated for Christmas RIGHT NOW.  We are in the middle of a blizzard, all the more reason to deck the halls...............right??  Anyway, i did get some of the bug out with those ornaments and this layout i did with Lily Bee's Christmas Town line.  Such a great line, with the perfect colors.  This is the kids on Christmas morning, i usually hate Christmas morning pics, but these turned out okay.

The flag stickers in all of the new collections are too die for!  I seem to use them on EVERY layout.  If you can't tell, the tree's are extra's i had from the Spellbinders blog hop.  Thanks for all who commented by the way................holy 503 comments!  I need to go check out who won the big prizes!  
Can't wait for Thanksgiving this weekend, i will have to share a picture of the craft i did for Baylee's pre-school on monday, we are going to attempt making them over at my MIL's  Thursday to break up the day a bit, not have kids running like crazy through the house the entire time, while the men are absolutely clueless because they are too busy watching football :).  Hope everyone has a fabulous Holiday weekend.  We are headed up to Soda Springs on Saturday also to cut down our tree!  Can't wait.
So i registered for my classes for next semester today, i guess it wasn't to terrible if i was willing to do it again right??  I took every class online this time, probably will wait till next fall when Baylee is in Kindergarten to take them at the school.  I took, Math 1010 (assuming i will pass 900 - havn't gotten my final grade yet - could be close ), English 1010, Psychology and another History class.  CRAZY!! 
Anyway, have a good one.

Spellbinders Holiday Hoppin blog hop

 Hey everyone!!  Glad you stopped by and hope your enjoying your hopping! Fancy Pants Designs in coordination with Spellbinders and Xyron we are showcasing some of the newest products just in time for your holiday crafting and gift giving.

I used the  S4-284 2010 Holiday Trees, i started off doing a layout and some how ended up with these fun ornaments!  I cut out 5 trees per ornament with paper from the Fancy Pants Tradition line, folded them in half and glued them together.  I then sprayed them with silver Maya mist.  Then traced around the edges with Ranger stickles (lime green, fruit punch).

 After everything dried I used some bling to decorate each tree!  I used Fancy Pants ribbon and some red wire for the tops of the trees.  Before adding these, i folded the trees in half and punched a 1/8 inch hole to tie the jute through for hanging - then hot glued the bows on top!!

Happy Birthday Mom

Just a quick post to share a few pictures and tell my mom Happy Birthday, it was tuesday, I'm just a slacker.  Love you so much mom and am so grateful for all that you do for our family (even though you won't come visit me in Honeyville) - i still love you.  Your so beautiful, kind and looking out for your family, i can only hope to be like you one day.  Hugs!!
Do you beleive my hair is getting so long, i can actually use a curling iron on it.  I do have to say i hate the time it takes to blow dry it though, so we will see how long i go without chopping it again :).

Some quick fall pictures from last saturday, the kids helping dean rake the leaves and then making a big mess by jumping back in them.  Then an attack from the crazy dog and his cone.  We got him fixed last week, so he gets to wear this, and it hurts when he runs into you full force, we actually had tears after this attack.

One last thing, i was lucky to be involved the Spellbinders Holiday Hoppin blog hop that is going on today and tomorrow!  My post will take place tomorrow right here, but if you want to check out todays inspiration start at Spellbinders blog - make sure you comment on each post for the chance to win some fabulous prizes!!  They will choose a winner today AND tomorrow!!
