Happy New Year 2011
Hi Stampers :

Happy New Year friends !

Its always  so exciting  starting a new year  I just need  to remember what  year I am in  when  writting  checks . I  seem to write  the previous year for  at least 1-2 months seems its just out of habbit But  still  eeerrrrr…

Gift from Opie & Karen
I wanted to show  you  all the portrait our  friend Karen  painted of Jessie's Senior picture they gave us  for Christmas  this year . WOWZIE  what a fabulous job  she  did  and it  will be a treasure  for many many years .  I have heard painting faces is  the hardest  thing to  master  and Karen  did a Wonderful job .

Thank you Karen!

New Purse from Sarah
I want  to show  you  what my  cousin Sarah  got me  for Christmas ( I just got it yesterday )  Look it's Purple  and It's sooo beautiful in person .

Me with the new purse Favorite Cousin Sarah got me
Thank you  so much Sarah I love it !

I guess  it's time to share with you ( if  you  want  to  take a look that  is …)  The cut my hubby  got on his head a couple months back where he needed 14 staples  .

I am sure you will be grabbing your head  and  saying OUCH  to yourself  when you  see the photos ..

Beware   photos  are not  for the  squimish. Trust me It took me a long  time  to be able to  look at  them  since I didn't  even look at  it  when he did it  all I needed  to know was there was ALOT of blood  and  that's all I needed  to see  to know it  was  bad .

Speaking of  hubby He  took his Harley  out for a spin yesterday  ( 1st ride of the new year LOL )  it reached 45 degrees  here in Michigan  and  all the snow is gone  in our  yard  Plus  the  streets were dry . By the way  the new  pipes  sound AWESOME!!

 Next week I will be heading to Nashville TN. for SU! Leadership  seminar  and I am sooo excited . I will show  you my swaps later .

Tomorrow is my Moms Birthday  and Wednesday is my Birthday . YAHOO!  Happy Early Birthday Mom~ I Love you !
