Parties are Over

What a wonderful Christmas weekend we had. First, Santa came and left us some wonderful gifts. In the afternoon we had my side of the family come for dinner and gifts. Here's a pic of my parents, and two sisters. We had a great time!

Then yesterday we went to John's side of the family for a Christmas party. Wonderful food and yankee swap! It was fun.

But now it's back to regularly scheduled programming. John has this week off so he's been doing alot of little things around the house. Both kids have been working alot of hours (something about buying a car??) and I'm working a few days.

Happy New Year!

Stockings are Hung

Our stockings are hung and are waiting for Santa to fill them! I hope he can find them up so high. We had to put them up high because of our dog, Mylo, who likes to chew everything in site. We have even had to move some of the ornaments on the tree.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas!

Snow is on its Way!

Snow is on its way and they are predicting a foot of it! Yikes! We are suppose to have my husbands side of the families Christmas Party tomorrow afternoon. Lets hope we can still have it!

I think I have all the shopping done and most of it wrapped. Now, lets' hope I remembered where I hid it all. Even with two teens, I still have a snooper!

John is off for two weeks with his companies shut down and a few days vacation so he hopes to get some "chores" done. I"m definately going to start the honey-to-do list for him on Monday. I would hate to hear him say his was "bored"!

Jared is home from his first semester of college. He'll be home for about a month and we are very happy. Kay is working alot of Old Navy this week so that keeps her busy.

Merry Christmas!

Advent Swap Goodies

Here are my Advent Swap Goodies that I got from my swap partner, Kit from Diva Quilts. I got the goodies last week and the whole idea behind it is that I'm suppose to open one gift everyday from Dec 1 - 25th! Ya, right! Me wait to open gifts..I don't think so! So I tore into that box like a little kids. What goodies I got. A few items aren't in the pic...a scrapbooking magazine which is on my nightstand, and a grocery sack holder.

Thank you, Kit, for my goodies!

Decorations around the house!

Here's a few pics of some of the decorations around the house. I'm slowly getting things up before Christmas Day when my family comes! Hope everyone is having a super day!

Santa Clause wallhanging from Debbie Mumm book. I made this a couple of years ago and love him.

Here's my Martha Stewart tree in the bathroom! It goes perfect with the blue walls!

Here's a pic of our tree in the Family Room. We had to move some ornaments higher because Mr. Mylo decided he wanted to see what they tasted like! We came home to do handmade ornaments in little pieces all over the floor!

It snowed Saturday night and it was the first time Mylo saw snow! He loves it as you can see! John was out throwing the ball around and he had alot of fun!
