Last minute layouts.......

I did my last few layouts for the year this last week while we've been enjoying Christmas break, thought i would stop in and share.  We had a wonderful Christmas, it came and went sooooooo fast.We spent Christmas eve at my parents and then came home and played a few games and set up for Santa, mom didn't want to make Santa's favorite so we used Sugar Cookies that a friend had brought over that day. *Santa insisted*  they were better than the ones i had made that were sitting right there too. 
Ethan started coming in our room around 6:00 a.m. then after 10 minutes after that till it was 7:00.  They were so excited to see what Santa had brought :)
 They got motorized scooters, and Baylee got the Tangled Castle and a Crib for babies along with alot of other fun things.  Then we made the trek to my parents again (and to be honest *Santa* lives there).  We always look forward to see the 'stacks' of presents, and the wonderful food displayed.  It has always been this way with them.  My parents usually don't see eye to eye, my mom wants to stop WAY before my dad ever does, but there is no controlling him.  Even as a child, when we didn't have much, no money, lived in a trailor park, there was always a wonderful Christmas.  We, or the grandkids aren't 'spoiled' all year long (he is actually quite the tightwad, a trait i wish i had inherited), but come Christmas, he does it, and he loves it.  So we let him...........

I feel bad i don't have more pictures.  I really just sat back and enjoyed this year, not crazy with the camera at all.  As a matter of fact, i didn't even pull it out once at Dean's parents.  We headed over there after mine and spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying one another's company.  My SIL Lori got EVERYONE together for a family photo and hopefully will get a copy of that.  So all in all, it was a wonderful day!!

Here are the layouts i did. The first i did with the new line from Fancy Pants called Love Birds!  SO FUN.  Super girly and whimsical i think, but i like that because i have one.  This is Baylee on her 4th birthday last year. 

The next is one i did using Lily Bee product.  Paper is from Catching Fall, Christmas Town and my all time favorite the green polka dot from Lovely.  Baylee and her uncle Brad whom she totally adores taking a walk. 

Okay enough talking............hope everyone has a Happy New Year!!  Our Ethan is getting baptized tomorrow so it should a great day.  We are excited.
