I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! We did at our house. My boys seem very happy with what they received. My 3 youngest boys got football shoulder pads, football pants, and a practice jersey. They havent taken them off for very long since Christimas day. Ive washed the pants and they went right back on. Im glad that they are so happy. They got other things too, but that seems to be their favorite. My oldest son, who recently became a teenager, got clothes. He wanted all these name brand clothes and he got them. He also seemed very happy. So it was a great day. Here is a picture of my boys in their new pjs on Christmas Eve.

Cant forget the milk and cookies for Santa!

I have been creating for my next DT upload. Since our scheduled day was New Years Day, I believe it has been changed. It will either be Jan. 8 or Jan 15. I will upload here once we post at HSS! As always, thanks for stopping by my blog! Leave me a comment and I will visit you too! Have a great day!

Salt Lake City

We went with the youth from our church to Salt Lake City last night. The purpose was to go see the lights at Temple was soooo cold last night that, honestly, I wasn't looking too forward to the trip. It's a little over an hour drive. Turned out not to be as bad as I had imagined. When we first got there we took a tour of the Conference Center. I had never been in that building before. It was really big (and warm). The Mormon Tabernacle Choir was practicing for an upcoming Christmas program. I snapped this blurry picture, and realized that my battery in my camera was almost this was as good as it was going to get.

After we went through the conference center, we walked fast through the temple grounds and went into the visitor center (another warm place LOL). I managed to get my camera to take another picture and snapped this one.

I did take a picture of the lights, but its just a big colorful blur. The camera wouldnt take pictures when I wanted it to. This is the last picture I got.

I tried to take pictures of the youth, my oldest son in particular...but my camera refused to take any more pictures. Note to self, check the camera battery and make sure you have the card in the camera before you go somewhere.
Thanks for stopping by! Leave me a comment and say hi!

Family Pictures

This is what Im ending up doing for our Christmas cards this year. I was going to make them clear back in July...but it didnt happen. I always procrastinate til Im too overwhelmed to make them. We just got family pics taken so I thought I would send these instead.

This is Jeff and I...we havent had a picture taken of just us since our first year of marriage. I thought it turned out pretty good.

These are my boys. What can I say, I think they are cute. I wish Tyler's hair wasnt all combed forward, but he smiled good so I cant complain too much. Its definately they prefer to dress and do their hair.

Well, gotta go for now. Im sitting at a home that is in a home show tomorrow. Im hoping I get to go through the tour by the end of the day tomorrow and get lots of fun decorating ideas. Hope you're all having a great day! Leave me a comment to let me know you were here.

My newest creations

Today was upload day at HSS...I finally got my stuff loaded and thought I would share here while Im still at my computer. This first one is probably my favorite of my creations today. There are 6 more pictures that goes with this (the inside), so if you want to see the rest please visit my gallery.

This was a fun little coupon book I made. I thought my kids could write on the coupons and give them to their dad for to think of what to write on the coupons. Any suggestions?

I made this tag to go along with the Friendship bread. Used my cricut for this one.

I made some Amish Friendship bread the other day. I had seen a publication that had bread done like this by Melissa Phillips. I thought it was so cute that I did it too.

Well, as always, thanks for stopping by my blog. If youre making holiday creations, link me up so I can come see yours. Have a great day!
