Happiest Memory of 2008

Date Nite

Well my husband and I don't get to go out often so it's usually extra special when we do. We had a lovely dinner out to a wonderful Chinese Restaurant because my man loves Asian Food. As on some of my layouts the journalling is done on my copy but not the Internet copy.

Whats This?

Our son sometimes get hold of the digital camera and I'm always surprised when I download the photo's and find these. He takes pictures of toys, his sister, friends and whatever. Sometimes a show that is on. It always make me laugh.

Dental Visit

Our son had his first Dental cleaning and X-rays. He did such a great job. He has been going to the Dentist since he was 18 months old. All these visits with only a look see sure helped make it smooth going for the first actual cleaning. A far cry from my own childhood horor stories of Dental visits.

Used Stacey Towers - A Little Sassy for this one. Changed the color of the Alphas to stand out a bit more.

New Look for Blog

Well I thought I would do something a little different and for Valentine's Day. It's our anniversary and I'm celebrating early. We give each other funny cards and a traditional gift of paper, wood whatever it might be. Two years ago it was cotton and he put two Q-tips in the card. I never laughed so hard and I still have the Q-tips and card.

My background page and header are from Studio Flergs. Kits used were Sweet Pea, Love Actually and Mango Tango Freebie. Megan is the bomb when it comes to design. Love all her kits.

Cutie Pie Princess

My daughter was being silly in the car one day and I happened to get it on my digital. She was peeking through her princess crown and giggling. It was so funny. I like that I made one photo black and white.
This is a new freebie kit by Random Musing of a Scrapaholic - Stacy Towers - A Little Sassy. Check out this cute kit on her blog, click on link.

Fast Car

Still have to do the journaling on this one but I can do it later. Our son loves to use tape on his toys to make them more interesting. He taped this to his car so it could be a fast car "Rocket" car. Sometimes I am needed to assist in the taping. I can hear my Dad in my head yelling up from the garage, "Who used up all my Tape?" It was me. I was forever taping and making things. I better buy stock in 3M. Ha! Ha!
This is a new kit I picked up and so cute for a boy. It's from Britt-ish Designs - Scrap Maters - Motor Mania. You can check the blog here and if you like the kit go to Scrap Maters here

Preschool Recess

We always had fun staying after lunch to play at Recess with all my son's friends. I'm grateful that the school didn't mind us staying on his days. What a great place. His teacher was fantastic and he loved all the activities they did. It has made his first year of school truly wonderful.

Naughty or Nice

Our daughter had fun opening her gifts once she got started. She loved all the horses the best. Santa brought her a country barbie and stable with dog. She is nice most of the time and must gets her naughtiness from Daddy. Hee! Hee! She actually reminds me of my sister when she was little.

The kit again is by Sunshine Studio Scraps - Kadoozie and used the Kadoozie add-on. Also used the QP with Film Strip. To get this cute kit go to Labels "A Special Gift" and click on link.

Duet Togetherness

Both of our children love to sit down at the piano with Daddy but today it was our daughter who enjoyed a duet with Dad. I wish my husband got to play more often. He is so great.
I used a QP that is somewhat ambiguous, Chr - Victorian Bliss - QP, Alpha - Sentimental Style- Autumn Treasures, Font - Edwardian Script. I had another QP using Victorian Bliss and it was made by Sara Butler so this may be hers as well.

Mommy was up first making sure batteries were charged and the tri-pod was up and so forth and so on...Our son was up next and checking out everything. He looked in the stockings, under the tree at the gifts and noticed that Santa and his reindeer ate all the cookies and milk. We played with the puppet's until everyone was up. It didn't take them long.

The kit I used for this one was from Lisa Whitney Designs - Holiday Spirit, Font was Franklin Gothic Book. Just click on link below to see her site.

A Special Gift

We received a package from some family in Canada and held it until Christmas eve. The children were very excited about opening it as they had been asking to open the gifts under the tree for a day and a half. They had such a fun time playing with the handmade puppets and my husband laughed at all my silly voices and sound effects.
We just returned from a week holiday visiting. All the extended family was there and it was so great to see everyone and visit a little. It was such nice weather that I hated to go home but the kids were missing Daddy. We will drive down to see Dad at the end of the month and my nephew will stay behind to care for him and drive him to all his appointments. We want to spend as much time with him as we can...
The kit I used was, Sunshine Studios, (Amanda Kay & Designs by Kristi) - Kadoozie, Sparkle by Newlife Designs, Font - Elegance. Click link here to check out their kit. Really great stuff.
I hope everyone has a Happy, Prosperous, Healthy and Joyous New Year!
