Christmas 2012

Hi Stampers :

Happy Sunday friends !

My Father in Law and Momma Jody headed out yesterday  and should be back home in TN this morning . What a Wonderful Christmas we had with our family. That was the best Christmas gift under our tree this year.

Christmas goodies

So many goodies everywhere … 7- Layer cookies , Pecan Pie, German Chocolate cake , Pumpkin Pie , Coconut Cream pie , Chocolate pie , Cookies . 

We had our family photos taken on Thursday  which we were  scheduled for Wednesday but we got a LOT of snow and it was not safe for anyone to be out  in that mess . Thankful Courtney  could re schedule us in for Thursday  and it was so much fun  2 hours of photos / couple photos / group photos etc…. 

Me and Hubby 2012

As soon as we get them  I will post  some of them. Here is a sneak peek of one of the proof's.  We had so much fun !

Dad shoveling snow 12-26-2012

Speaking of SNOW Dad did something he had not done in years … Shoveled  snow (See photo)


While they were here  we went to Bronners /Famous TONYS ( which we were good  and we all split this HUGE Nacho).  Jody & I went to Home Goods not once but twice .

One thing with this fabulous store is if you see something you really love you  should get it because it won't be there the next day . Case in point Jody found these adorable nesting baskets for her Kitchen  in the Christmas section which was 60% off .

There were (3) sets of baskets and she picked up 2 I mentioned to her she should just get all 3 but she only picked up 2  then by the time we got to check out she put 1 back … fast forward … we got home and dad said she should have got more of those for that price .   We went back the next day  and she did get another set BUT the 3rd one was gone, as well as the end tables she fell in love with .

We  would have went to Ikea  but the snow knocked out 1 day of getting out .

Hubby got my Mom & Jody a Pandora Bracelet for Christmas and Pat got Jessie  a Pandora.

Comptuer Chair hand wrapped by hubby with duc tape

New Computer chair

Dad and Hubby hooked up new heating vents in my Stamping area  and my Stampin office while he was here  and Hubby got me a Beautiful Computer chair ( see photo) . Dont you love his wrapping with blue duc tape? It's a guy thing LOL!  

Jody's Shellac nails and ring from Dad

While dad & hubby went over to the rental house and put in new counter tops and the kitchen sink  Friday night I did Shellac on Jody's nails  and she loved it !  She picked Clearly Pink and Mother of Pearl ( glitter ) are they pretty or what ?? She has such pretty nails.

Oh and look at the rock on her finger Dad got her ! We all agree  her new sparkley nails go so great with her new ring and Pandora bracelet.

As 2012 comes to an end  I just wanted to tell each of you  I am so thankful & humbled that you  welcome me into your home each day Thank you  for all your encouragement with your emails and  comments.

I was thinking of a year in review with photos. But  what photos could I post that  most of you haven't already seen on my Sunday shares.

 I will be starting a 2013 Sunday Share category this new year .This way  the whole year will have it's own year in review . Today's Sunday Share will be the 1st post in that category.

I am so overwhelmed  with Gratitude for all of you . I have always said that stamping has  brought us together but over the years I feel all of you have become a part of my extended family . So many of you weather its  through my blog / email / texting / Facebook / Twitter / Phone calls …I can't not express  how  you all have made my day  brighter over the last year .

I am looking forward to 2013  and all the stamping fun we will be having  together . Thank you  so much for picking me to be your SU! demonstrator .
