the 4th already??

our christmas card pic...
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....
wow December is already flying by.

as i moved my little snowman calendar guy to today, the fourth, I am just shaking my head.

This year i am really trying to enjoy each moment of this Christmas. the good, the bad and even the ugly.

A BAD....the kids and i came down with a little bug and darn, its just no fun. After a trip to the doctor today, it was treat time though. A little shave ice always makes us feel a bit better and its the closest we get to snow here.
A GOOD.... i went to our little scrapbook stores Christmas party and got 50 % off my entire purchase!! I was so tickled.
happy 4th to you and yours

holy moly, what an awesome Christmas photo. so lucky that you get to have the Hawaiian sunset in the background. makes those of us with the winter cold so jealous.

Gifts from the heart are the best, i say. There's so much more meaning to it. you go girl!

What an awesome family pic! Hope that you and your little ones are feeling better! And half off of your entire purchase? Wow! That would definitely make me feel better. ;)

Dude. I think the bug is hitting the group. Haha. Not possible to catch it through the comp, but still a conspiracy :) Haha.

This year pretty much zipped right on by. Crazy, eh?

So love what you're making. I always have intentions to, but time... ohhhh, time. Haha.

That Christmas Card picture is perfect :)

I saw that train yesterday while I was in Williams Sonoma. They actually made it out of Rice Krispy Treats. Yum!

You all look so adorable!
