Happy birthday, happy mail, happy hair, happy outfits, happy days... just HAPPY :):):):):):)

Hi everyone! :):):)

Well, so far this month has been just as crazy as December! What happened to that promise that it was gonna slow down after the holidays?? lol... ohhhhhhh that's right... I never got that promise from anyone! LOL :):):):)

Wanted to share some recent photos of Brookie and gang and also some cards that I made :):)

Last week, Brookie had a Winter Gala program at pre-school :):):)

(She dared me to take this one... totally thinking I wouldn't! lol!) :)

And now, back to normal :)

Performing in the gala :)



Brookie and her other classmates :):):):) She is a lot taller than the rest of them! lol :):):):)


Let's see -- oh yes, we went to a birthday party for one of Brookie's little pre-school friends this past weekend :):):):)

Her little friend blowing out her candles! :)


Brookie and Daddy :)



Ohhhhhh and I made the birthday card for the above said Birthday friend ... and decided to make a second "i {heart} you" card also while I was creating! (And PS...these are both made up of scrappy stash as part of my ongoing challenge this year to myself to use it up!!) :):):):):):):)
(sorry for the shadows...had to photo these before we headed to the party..and all I had was direct sunlight!) 



And let's see... Brookie got a new outfit she wanted to show off and she got some happy mail too! :):):)


A Get Well card from Brenda :):):)

And happy mail from Amy! :):):):)
 

And I got some yummy happy mail from Connie :):):)



And let's see... everyone got haircuts yesterday :):):):) I was with Brookie at her salon while the boys were down the way getting theirs done :):):):)


Brookie and Daddy having fun :):):)




And one last thing before I go :) My local friend Julie has a daughter that has a traveling journal that I blogged about HERE... well some of my sweet international friends were nice enough to email Julie about the journal and it has been shipped to the first person.... Julie has asked me to remind the person that has it to please send her daughter a postcard from their country :):):):) If you have the journal, please email Julie at jewlz@cox.net for all the details :):):) Thanks :):):):):):):):):):):)


Ok....so I have one more thing... lol... bloggy friend Rachael is having a birthday giveaway! It is AMAZING... go check it out! :):):):):):)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :):):)
