Christmas 2013

Here's a few pics of our wonderful Christmas day together with family.... I didn't take many as I wanted of course... just enjoyed the moment and completely forgot about pictures during gift exchange!!!

Santa always sets up his special musical train for "the kids" to play with during the day.... and his elf helper Grandpa Jerry was constantly called to maintain the tracks and re-position the cars...

yes... all the kids enjoyed it... heeheehee

We had our traditional enchiladas for dinner....

Opened presents next....
and here's the only shot I got of Brayden loving every minute of it!

Once the frenzy was over we finished off 
with dessert on the patio... 
not many can do that in 80 degree weather 
on Christmas Day!

Happy Birthday Jesus....

It was a wonderful celebration!

Birthday Bling for Pam!

Usually I'm a day late and a dollar short... but for birthday wishes to Pam I am a day early... Tomorrow is Pam's birthday and just wanted to wish her a very special day.... like so many others around the holidays, birthdays get mixed into all the festivities... but certainly wanted you to know my dear that you are so special to me and I wish you the most wonderful birthday ever!

Have a blast celebrating tomorrow.... 
wish we could be with you!

Postcard Christmas

Hope Santa was good to everyone! If you had as great of a celebration as we did, then I know you too were blessed with gifts from God! We did miss having Caleb and Rebekah with us this year, now that they've moved to Kentucky our holidays are definitely Long Distance... so thought this "Postcard" was appropriate to share with you today.... especially with them in mind!

Sending special Christmas wishes to you!

We missed you guys and know you are having a great celebration 
with everyone this week...
wish we were there too!

When They Saw the Star!

When they saw the star.... great Playdoh recipe for the kids to make!

Would make an adorable gift to provide all
the ingredients and  
include a star shape cookie cutter....
How sweet is that?

Quilling Christmas and then some...

I attended a Quilling class this week that my friend Mona taught... she has monthly sessions at Mira Mesa Library and cool thing all classes are FREE!!!!  .... I had a great time finally learning how to quill.

We made snowflakes.. well err uhh truth is ... I made snowflake.... Was lucky to get just one finished and here it is!  Certainly gives you a greater appreciation of what it takes and what an art this really is!!

I'm excited to get more experienced at this... 
here's some darling Quilled Christmas tags you can do too... just adorable.

Mona has agreed to teach one of my card stations
at my February SAS...
we'll be making a Valentine card with quilled hearts....
can't wait
the possibilities are endless!!
ut oh.. .look what I just found:
Pencil in February 8th for those of you who are interested!
 ps I'm sure you guys dont remember..
 but I will never forget...
the "1" year old birthday card that Mona made for Brayden...
I had to go back and look it up now that
I can so much more appreciate her work!!!

Complete with the perfect message inside too!
