YEA!!!! It's Friday and I have the day off!

My cousin Robin (loves2create) made her first sketch ever and it was a great sketch. I had to do it to support her new venture of scrapbooking doing sketch's.

This is a picture of me and my friend Myra and her daugher Malina. The live in Glenshaw, PA so we don't get to see each other very often but we do try at lease once a year of either me going to there home or when it works out and they are coming through town on there way to the annual beach vacation they do in NC. This year it happens they were coming thru and Mike her husband wanted the kids to get some history so we went to Mt.Vernon. I had never been and I live so close to it so we were up for the history also.

The papers were from the My Creative Scrapbook October 2009 kit

Here is a close up of the actual picture:

Dear Santa

My co-worker and I decided to go to the mall one day on our lunch hour so she could do a little Christmas shopping for her daughters. As we were down in the food court getting our lunch I asked her if she wanted to get a picture with Santa and she told me "NO" you do it so I did!! Anyone who knows me knows I am still just a big kid at heart.

Santa asked me what I wanted and I told him I wanted some scrapbooking supplies and that is what I got so I am still a believer in Santa Claus LOL!

My Husband's Cooking

My husband loves black bean soup and has wanted to make some of his own instead of having to go out and get some from places like Whole Foods or Panera Bread. Well yesterday he was all excited because his cousin from CA had given him this recipe and he was going to try it out.

My husband is not the greatest cook in the world but being a good wife I eat his food when he attempts to cook. One time he made homemade Alfredo sauce and boy it was so hot I did not have sinus problems for a month. We were living with his Grandmother Ann when he made the Alfredo sauce and she told me I was a brave soul LOL!!!.

We once had to help him make brownies for his office pot luck and when his grandmother and I turned our backs he put pepper in the mixture. When his grandmother and I looked down in the mixing bowl and saw this she had thought I had did this and I was like I did not put that there so we asked my husband if he had put something in the bowl and he proudly said "I put pepper in there to bring out the flavor". His grandmother and I looked at each other and said I am glad I am not eating those things.

My husband is the oldest child of 5 he has 2 younger sisters and 2 younger brothers so my mother-in-law used her microwave allot to cook some of her meals so they were not used to good old home cooking like I was brought up on. When I was growing up the microwave was only used to heat things up but not in his household. Once before we got married we were at my parent’s house and I was cooking something and he was like you are not going to use the microwave? I told him "NO" that is used to heat things up. To this day there are some things I just have to do the old fashioned way like mashed potatoes. I DO NOT allow boxed potatoes in my house at all. Don’t get me wrong I don’t have anything against them as I do eat them when I go to my In-law’s house.

Well here is a picture of his creation

Here is a picture of my bowl. I was only able to take 2 bites as I was laughing the whole time I was preparing my plate as I new that was one I was not going to be able to get down. Needless to say I ended up eating a frozen meal we had in the freezer.

This is a picture of me and my younger brother George one Christmas. I loved Christmas as a child alright I still love it to this day. I use to wake up early in the morning wanting to run downstairs to see what Santa had brought me but apparently 4:ooam was a little too early and I always had to go back and lay down until a decent time.

I used the Swirlydoos January kit "Winter Wonderland" to create this layout. The paper in the January kit was just absoutley beautiful.

I came across this picture looking for some older Christmas pictures. I was super excited when I found this picture of me and Santa. I could not wait to scrap this picture of this moment. I am not sure how old I am in this picture I am guessing about 5 or 6 years old.

The papers used in this layout are from the Swirlydoos January Kit "WINTER WONDERLAND". The papers in this months kit are just absoutley beautiful.
