End of the Year..feeling a little nostalgic....

I know, I hate when I get this way....lol I was just thinking about all the New Year's Eve parties that my parents used to go to and we loved it because we got to stay with a baby sitter....very rarely did they go anywhere that we didn't get to go, so it was sort of a treat to get to stay home with out the parents....lol And we always used to tell them bye as they leave and say "See y'all next year!" lol We used to think that was the funniest thing! Yes, we were pretty cheesey kids...lol
But it was fun....what was special that you used to do around this time of year? Let me know, leave me a comment....
Well, I am going to scrap a few recipes that I wanted to share with my family and my daughter...
and I have to scrap the Christmas pictures of us at my mom's for my mom's bragbook. TTFN!

It's a Lazy Sunday here in Texas...

We slept til 10:30 this morning...I don't know why...I guess we were just flat tired. lol I did manage to scrap a few more pages yesterday. I was a guest CT for Connie Prince's DigiDivas for the month of December and I had a blast using all her beautiful kits...you can check her out at GottaPixel.net I am sure you will find something that will suit your fancy! lol
Here are a couple pages that I made last night....
This is my daughter, I swiped this picture from her friends MySpace...lol But it is soo cute. I used Connie's Tutti Frutti Kit for this fresh page!

This is my daughter again with her boyfriend at Christmas...she looks happy here...I love to see her smiling! :) I used Connie's Color My World-Revved Up Red Kit for these next two pages...it is a fun kit that works wonderful on Black and white photos or on color ones.
This is a picture of all of us together at my mom's house on Christmas Eve. We had Christmas dinner in her game room/garage...lol
Hugs and thanks for looking,

Good Sunday Morning...

So far anyway...I have a horrible cold and my throat is very sore...and to top it off I have no voice...but thankfully I can still type...lol
Hope your Christmas break is a good one and your Christmas is a blessed one. We are going to mom's on Christmas Eve, but we will be home on Christmas Day to see what Santa brought the kids...lol
I managed to scrap a few pages yesterday...as you will see below! I was having fun...then my cold medicine kicked in and I got sleepy..lol

This is my Christmas card this year...I didn't have a picture with all of us on it so I improvised a little. I used a great kit called "Christmas traditional" by Rina Kroes....it is fabulous.

This page was made using a fabulous freebie from KolorScapez...too cute! And you know how I love snowmen.
This page was made using a great kit by BoolandDesigns called "Night Visions" You can find it at BoolandDesign.com
This page I made using the Cozy Christmas Quick PAges by Connie Prince at Gotta Pixel.net
This page I made using more of the freebies from Kolor Scapez...she has some adorable goodies over there...
I was using all the kits I have for at least one page...that way I can justify downloading them all...and with the Christmas Blog Trains running my hard drive is groaning everytime I find a new one...lol
Well, I guess I will get off here and get some more work done...I have a stack of stuff to get done over the holiday, plus I need to buy Christmas presents....uggghhhh!
Hugs for now,
