I Made It!!!

I managed to get everything done for Brooke's preschool Christmas party AND I wasn't even late! LOL I got her Christmas tree sugar cookie "suckers" made last night & decorated this morning. I also finished packaging up the teachers gifts & a hostess gift for the mother that was hosting the party in her home. I gathered all the stuff together for the cute little snowman goody bags for each student, thank goodness there's only 6 all together in her class! Oh! And Brooke drew Ella's name, the little girl who was hosting the party, for the gift exchange. She got her a cute little blue satin butterfly purse with blue sequins stitched on it & we filled it with a Hello Kitty notepad & pen & a few pieces of play jewelry. I guess Ella really liked it, because she carried it everywhere with her. That's always a good sign! Kaylee drew Brooke's name for the drawing & she got her a cute, sparkly, beach Barbie Doll! Brooke liked it very much & she doesn't even have a Barbie yet. I was thinking about getting her one, but just haven't yet. She's not a huge doll fan, but she keeps asking for the Bratz dolls (which I think are the ugliest things out there!). The children had a very nice time at the party & Ella's parents have a BEAUTIFUL, old, victorian style home.

Brooke's little Christmas program went well in the sanctuary today too. She didn't know the words quite as well this time, but that's because they missed a day due to the weather, plus it's a very short month for them to begin with, since they start their Christmas break now. They would normally have one or two more weeks to practice before their monthly program. When I get it downloaded, I'll try to remember to post some pictures and/or the video.

Can't Catch up Fast Enough!

Oh my!! I am really needing to get my butt in gear here! I am making progress, even though it doesn't look like it or feel like it! I made up some simple little pockets for Hot Chocolate packets today for Brooke to give to her preschool teachers/helpers along with a mug/plate & a simple ornament. The packets turned out cute for being quite simple! I could have gone all out on them, but I need to have them finished for Thursday morning. I also need to make the snack for her class party. I've decided to make Sugar Cookie Christmas Tree Suckers. I'll post those when I get them done. My husband told me I was an over-achiever because I can't just make round cookies with frosting. LOL!!

I have more errands to run today & more gifts to buy still. I have a few returns already to make, since I found nicer stuff for a better deal on a few things.

Jordan, my son, told on me to Alan that I knew what Alan had gotten me for Christmas! Can you believe that?! I didn't even tell Jordan that I knew, but he overheard me on a phone conversation to a friend that I figured it out & simply by the OBVIOUS comments DH had mentioned. It's not like I went snooping, like he's doing now. I'm pretty ticked at Jordan for telling him that. I just may have to take back a gift as a payback. Alan feels cheated about the surprise part of it, but I told him about his comments that gave it away. I didn't even ask him about the gift. I wonder if I'll even get it now?

2007 Christmas Projects

These are projects & cards that I made this season.

Starbuck's bottles

These are Starbuck's bottles that I altered along with the carton that holds them.

One Week until Christmas...

I have lots of catching up to do on here, since I'm still learning this whole Blogger thing. I figured out how some of it works today, but that just may change by next week & I'll have to start all over again! My stuff is a little out of order since I was trying to fix the slide show portions, but had to just recreate them. Anywho, the picture below is the other word sign I made using the Autumn Leaves - Foofala papers. I did sell this one at the craft show that I participated in back in Nov.

2007 Blueberry Festival Fireworks

This year I finally got to see a little of the lighted balloon show & the entire fireworks show at the Marshall County Blueberry Festival. We typically see a few of the hot air balloons in flight when we return home from Kenton, but that's the extent of what I have seen. Here are some of the pictures I took that night: These are the lighted hot air balloons just before the fireworks show. We were sitting right in front of a tall fence, so you might see some fencing in a photo or two.

2007 - Brooke as a Fairy Princess

This is Brooke's Fairy Princess costume that she HAD to have! Luckily, the weather was decent for me to take this picture, because it turned considerably windy & colder by the time for Trick or Treating. I put on a pretty lavendar velvet shirt under the dress, even though she still wore her pretty lavendar feathery sandals. But she refused to wear her coat, or put on her tennis shoes, until we were down to the last 2 houses & she could not bear it any longer. I guess it's true when they say "Beauty know no pain!"
