Christmas Cards!

I put my 2009 cards in the mail yesterday - WHOOHOO! I am happy to be checking that off my list so early in the season! I am usually a December 15 or later card sender outer, lol...

TODAY - we are off and running! The basketball season has begun! Maddie has 2 games today, and just about every Saturday from now until mid-February. Add little brother with Saturday practices into the mix, and we will be running in all different directions for awhile, lol.

TOMORROW, the kids have their final Black Belt testing for Tae Kwon Do. What a journey that has been! Starting in January, we will step back from that a bit, and try to just focus on one sport, but until then, it's double duty trying to squeeze everything in!

Advent Calendars!

It's December, so it's time for Advent calendars! We opened ours on Tuesday night - the kids love getting a bite of chocolate each night after dinner! Of course the dog had to get into the photo too. She is not "floating" in mid-air there, I cropped out Dad's arm, holding her in place, lol.

I picked up these Advent calendars at Target, but I am *really wishing* I had known about these VERY COOL LEGO advent calendars! How cool are those??? I am making a note in my calendar for next September/October to pick these up for the kids - SO FUN!

Holidazzle 2009!

Happy Wednesday to you!

I am off and running this morning, work-work-work! But I did want to share this page I worked on last night. Last year, we missed the Holidazzle Parade because we just ended up getting too busy, so this year, I was determined to go early in the season! We were actually there on the first night! (Mental Note: The first night plus warm weather equals a BIG CROWD!)

I took a TON of photos that didn't turn out, but I managed to get a few that weren't a blur! I forgot to get a family shot - BAD PHOTOGRAPHER! Bullseye (the Target mascot, and YES she is a real dog!) was the Grand Marshall - so cute! Of course everyone cheered for the Joe Mauer snowman, too!

December Desktop

How did it get to be December already??? Is it just me, or did 2009 totally FLY BY? Christmas will be here before we know it - you know how fast December always is!

Here is my December desktop, compliments of Shabby Princess. (You can get yours HERE) I am so happy with the pictures we got from our mini holiday portrait session, I decided to just plug those in. Still waiting for my prints, tap tap tap...hopefully they will be here today!

Thanks for stopping by - have a happy Tuesday!
