First, I hope everyone had a happy holiday! It was crazy here! The kids were so excited. I think they were bursting at the seams on Christmas morning!

Kaileyne's Christmas theme was HANNAH MONTANAAAAAAAAAA!

I think she almost fainted every time she opened a gift that had HM in it!

You know how six year olds are! It is all about the drama! LOL

The only thing she loved more was Pixos! She has not stopped playing with that since she got it.

Jet's Christmas theme was Monster trucks and Wall*E.

He loves Wall*E. he has watched the movie at least twice a day.

And he laughs. Oh how he laughs!

I love my son's laugh!

You can be in the other room and when you hear him laugh, you laugh.

His laugh is so contagious. So genuine.

Quinn's Christmas theme was oblivion. LOL

He did not care.

He just dug himself a hole in the middle of the ripped wrapping paper and made a home.

That was his fun for the day!

Ok, enough about the kids. LOL Let's talk about me me meeee!

Yes, my husband and my brother got the ceiling tiles, lighting and floor down in my new scrapbook room!!!! YAY!! That was my Christmas present.

Then, my MIL got me a gift card for Lowes. Double YAY!!!!

Went out this weekend. Bought a door. A door frame. Outlet covers.

And had the guys put them in this weekend. Triple YAY!

It looks like a room now!

We cannot put the base moulding or the corner round in until the cabinets come (heavy sigh), but it is coming around.

I was going to put a closet door in my room, but decided to put a curtain there instead. I thought that the door would make the room look smaller.

And that would not to at all. LOL

I want it large in charge!

So, now I have to save up for my cabinets. It will take me a little time but I am so excited.

I even cleaned up the entire basement tonight. It was a disaster!

But knowing that now I can set up my craft table in it, makes me all giddy inside. hee hee

I am going to do that tomorrow. I may even put some things on the wall.

I may even transport some things downstairs from the disaster I call my "current scrapbook room."

Kaileyne says she will help me as much as possible. Why? because she knows as soon as that room is clear, it is all hers to Hannah Montana up.

My baby girl will have her own room. She is beyond thrilled!!

I do not have any pictures of my room yet. I want to do a couple things before I take pictures.

I should be getting my curtains this week (fingers crossed).

Once I get them put up, I will share some photos.

I need to ask your opinion about something anyway.

Ok, gotta run. Tomorrow is "go to the dump day."

After cleaning the basement, I have a lot of things to throw away. Too much for the trash guys to pick up.

And my little baby boy is turning one on Thursday. Can you believe it has been a year?

And his party is Saturday. So much to do.

So, I will holler at ya soon.

Have a great week!

Thank you Secret Santa!

A bunch of us from the Creative Memories Design Team decided to do a Secret Santa.

It is always fun! And I had not done one of these in so long. So, I was really excited!

It is so nice to be able to get to know someone and spoil them with goodies at the same time.

Don't you think?

Well, I received my package from my Secret Santa Yesterday.

She definitely deserves a shout out!

She was very generous.

I loved everything, but my favorite is the hand made picture frame. Isn't it adorable?

I only had one problem. I still do not know who she is! LOL

Hopefully she will come out soon!

Thank you Secret Santa!

And Merry "Almost" Christmas!

Today, is cookie day. Kids will be making sugar and chocolate chip cookies today from scratch.

Ok, I made them from scratch. The dough is in the frig. Ready to go. I did that last night. James helped. And then my brother came down just in time for the community cookie dough taste test.

Tomorrow is a full at the school. Crafts and Pizza Party.

Pick up a few more things for hubby.

Then, I need to create 3 classes for a crop before Christmas.

No problem right? Where is that egg nog? LOL
