Family Xmas in Sulphur

I had a fun day yesterday...we celebrated CHRISTmas in Sulphur. We all had so much fun watching Maidalyn opening her gifts...I really didn't realize that so many Princess items were available! LOL! She knows everything about them and had a great time playing this evening! Dad cooked a big chicken and sausage gumbo and Sarita made her famous potato salad. We enjoyed opening gifts from each other and John will have 3 to open when I get home. (He had to work on Sat.) I'll get to visit with Maidalyn again later today...she is spending the night and then, her Dad will bring her back to her Mom.

Our New Orleans Saints lost their first game last night to the bad boys in TX...the Dallas Cowboys. I am still so very proud of the Saints this year!

I took lots of LOs coming soon! I ordered my new kits from MLAS for the remainder of the month but, I haven't gotten to dload them yet!

Shopping, Movie, Fun!

I had a fun afternoon yesterday. My sis-in-law, niece, and I went shopping at the Mall. (People watching at Christmas time is soooo much fun!) After about 2 hours, my niece's son and daughter met us. It really was fun shopping with 2 experience...but, it was fun! After shopping, we watched a movie at my niece's house!

I caught up on my email and digi-sites and made 2 LOs for Scrapable's 12 Days of Christmas (2nd Day...Speed Scraps). I used the Scrapable Dec. Collab, Mele Kalikmaka, for both of them.Mako's Water Bottle features my canine niece and her love for water bottles and Mr. Snowman features a snowman that I saw at the Acadian Village's Christmas Lights.

Brrr...Acadian Village...Lots of Fun!

Another cold night in south Louisiana...John and I went to see the Christmas Lights at Acadian was awesome. We even got our picture taken in front of the little church where we got married. I'll be making some LOs with the many pictures that we took!

When we got into the car, John said that he thought we needed to get some fancy coffee, we went to Barnes and Nobles and has flavored lattes...yummies! We looked around the many kewl items!

We stopped off at Barbara's house and got a good supply of loving from the 4-legged relatives! Mako (large Pitt...I call her my Big Baby Girl) thought that she would make a nice neck scarf and decided to lay on the back of the sofa and my neck! She snuggled and gave me kisses! Cardi was on my lap and wasn't happy that Mako was encroaching on her Aunt Kayre time! We even played with the cats and the new (and adorable) kitten!

I've gotten lots of great photos during the past week...I will be making layouts with the wonderful kits from my December designers. Oh, don't forget that Bubblescrap Designs has her awesome December Grab Bag revealed and on sale at MLAS for $2.99...a full kit with alpha, templates, QPs, and word art! Wow!

Over 100 Posts

Wow...I am over 100 posts...and to think...I didn't know how to do this a few months ago! LOL!

It's raining tonight and is supposed to be stormy tomorrow. I really hope to get something accomplished in my house tonight while J is at work! I would love to surprise him with CHRISTmas decorations! Of course, I will be resting and scrapping along the way! LOL!

I scrapped this LO using Polar Play by Dream Big Designs for the MLAS Mystery Lift Challenge. My friend's son had a blast in the recent Texas Snow!

I am so excited the New Orleans Saints just won their 12th game this season making them undefeated in 2009! They are making the people of Louisiana soooo proud! Around our house, the win was extra special since hubby has been a die-hard Redskins fan for many, many years! Yes, I made a sign that shows the score!!! LOL!

We are supposed to be getting snow flurries this afternoon! Yipee!

I spent last evening dloading lots of kits for my designers at MLAS and Scrapable AND Collabs for both sites! Whew....I uploaded lots and lots of stuff off my computer onto DVDs! Now, comes the fun part...lots and lots of LOs and QPs!

I will be helping a friend later today to prepare for a Winter Ball on Sat. nite...she does all the decorations, all the food, and...this year...she and her husband are King and Queen. It will be a busy day. I guess that Saturday will be very hectic, too...I will be helping to get the food on the tables and enjoying the Ball. (John has to work but, he probably wouldn't go if he was off...but, I do plan to have fun! LOL!)

I can't wait to see the white stuff...sneaux is a rarity in south Louisiana!

LOs, Designers, and Other News

I made 3 LOs for Mama Mia Designs using her December Grab Bag that went on sale yesterday at MLAS. Merry and Bright features Darryl and Jaseon's Christmas tree, Maidalyn 1208 and Tweet Girl feature my adorable niece.

MLAS has renamed the CT...we will be called Spirit Squad members and we will have other responsibilites besides doing LOs for our designers. My designers for December are Tempus fugit and Dream Big Designs. I have already gotten the kits that I will be using for the LOs. (I just need to make space on my hard drive for them! Will get the DVDs that are on sale at Target tomorrow!)

It's raining tonight in south Louisiana and according to the forecast, we will have our coldest temps this year during the week. Brrrrr! I made chilli the other night but, John wants another batch...perfect for the upcoming cold weather. I am currently making smothered taters and sausage. When the taters are done, I will make a Chicken and Veggie won't take long...the meat and broth were frozen...I just need to add the flavorings and the veggies! John rarely eats soup but, I eat it when he's not home. I do most of my cooking late at night when John is at work.

Hugs and Smiles!
