Olivia enjoying the toys for tots train and not happy to be giving away a Dora toy to this great cause. It makes us feel all warm and fuzzy to give though....
a Williams Sonoma cake that i wish i had time to make....how cool is it really? it blows a gingerbread house way out of the water.....
and a Christmas gift i made for Dad.....one of many i am making this year. Its so fun to give something from the heart and use up scrappy supplies at the same time....

I get my first peeks at the kits i subscribe to each month. Scrapologie and poppy ink are my two current ones and man are these things the best?? So addictive too. Sadly i can not imagine when i will end my subscriptions ...never hopefully. really sad.....i am already scoping out a few more...eeks.
i sit down and look at whats coming up for the month.
the first big thing is a Xmas parade tonight.
and then tomorrow...
du du duhhhhhh..the Army/ Navy game! Its huge in my house being that Anthony went to the Naval Academy. Even the kids have outfits to wear in support. GO NAVY!!
reason 3...i love the fresh start feel of a new month. and for some reason knowing that this is the last month of 2006 ,i feel i need to do alot. Make sure my year is complete. and with that comes a time of reflection and of course i love that.
so happy december 1st to you!

it started in the airport with miss Olivia, the flight attendant wanna be, trucking her toys. Loved seeing that.
Then we enjoyed a beachside, potluck style Thanksgiving. Yummy!!!
More time was spent shopping, eating, and enjoying the beach. It was so wonderful to see all the cousins playing together. There is nothing as special as time spent with family. It will be nice when we all live closer and can do it more often.
so now we are in full gear Christmas mode.
feeling of comfort and joy. check, check.
stockings hung. check x 4
I know its not even December yet, but man i love me some Christmas time joy!!

don't i look like a little wimp gangster in the one photo? it made me laugh though so i thought i'd share it.
since taking those pics the other day, i cleaned up a little and found some projects that i have been wanted to do forever. So i stuck my heels in and made Kyan's name. Forgot how easy those things are and am so glad i finally finished it for his room. Poor boy. Its so much funner to decorate a girly girl room and so i have long had Olivia's done and now i have got to push to get his all fun like. one step down, many more to go.
also in crazy news here... we had a tsumami watch here again yesterday. eeekks. We got a call at 5 am but luckily it passed with minimal results. Below is an article that was in the paper and for sure got me a little rattled.
Story:Mini-tsunami has minimal effect on Kaua'i Surfers and fishermen noticed a tidal change that exposed reefs after yesterday's tsunami, but no damage, injuries or severe flooding werereported on island, officials said. The only reported flooding was a 21/2-foot swell that flooded a parkinglot at Nawiliwili Harbor, according to Mary Daubert, county spokeswoman. For more of this story, click on or type the URL below: http://www.kauaiworld.com/articles/2006/11/16/news/news02.txt
the key word in there in MINI. yikes. any at all is too much for me.
The whole warning got me thinking about how i need to be more prepared now. A little good comes out of everything right?

a chance run in with
Britney Spears, K-fed, and
baby sean. Can you believe
gooey twix filled baby boy fingers.
Old school candy..Hello?? made my night for sure. Even my tongue was filled with colors from the Razzles!! loved it!
And then my little unicorn. So precious. Thank goodness that we have dress up costumes because after she changed her mind about being Dora, the Unicorn came in quite handy.
she looked so cute running around with her little pumpkin pail and saying Trick or Treat in her shy girl voice.
i loved every minute of it.
Even Anthony and i dressed up for the night. I tried to figure out how to be Fergie but couldn't think of a way to not look trampie. She can pull it off, but i sure don't have the body or the courage with two young kids to give it a whirl.
i did go as a skydiver though. So less cool but the look worked due to Anthony's gear .
Anthony at the last minute made himself into a rubics cube. i'll just not even go into detail, but it was a sight to see.
what a great way to end the month!!

from the mouth of my neighbor, aida, who scrapbooked for the first time this week and got her hair chopped off.
I wish i could be as witty as her sometimes. I've told her that she needs to journal on my pages the way she tells stories....always hilarious and clever.
I used to be the only one around where i lived that scrapbooked and now its spreading like wildfire. We even have a group that gets together every other monday night. Its always so fun to see the different things everyone comes up with.
thats the magic of scrapbooking ...i love it
