Score! :):):):)

Hi everyone :):):):)

I hope everyone had a WONDERFUL Christmas!! We did... it was wonderful... Christmas presents in the morning, followed by breakfast made by my Dad and then dinner at my parents followed by a Birthday cake for Jesus and Mark (a person close to our heart)  :):):):) I will be sharing photos at the end of this post! :):):):):):)

I wanted to share a layout I made with the YUMMY December Artful Delight kit!! Love love love this kit :):):):)

This was Brookie on Halloween :):):) When I went to download all my pics from that night... I swear this pose looks like she is saying "SCORE!" lol :):):)

I also wanted to share a little gift I made for my Goddaughter Amanda... I again used the December Artful Delight kit on this!! I took some vintage spools I had and decorated them to make a little hanging for her for Christmas :):):):):):):)

And now for the Christmas photos!! Boy did Santa spoil those kids! LOL!! :):):):):):)

Here is the tree and presents before everything got torn to bits... LOL! :):):):)

Here is Brookie's gifts :):):):):)

Adam's gifts :):):)

The Grandparents, my Brother and Brian with some of their gifts :):):):):)

And I have to share this one! Jennifer makes the MOST AMAZING signs (we now own THREE!!) and I had an idea one day and asked Jennifer if she could make a custom one for Brian (He is a HUGE bowler!)... and she DID!! She totally came through for me for Brian's gift!! She is AWESOME!! She has a variety of beautiful signs in her ETSY shop ... you should all check her out!! The quality of her work is AMAZING!! :):):):):):):):):):) Thanks Jennifer for helping make Brian's Christmas so special!  :):):):):):):):):)

 Brookie giving Adam a HUGE hug after opening her little dolly from him :):):):):):):)

And for those that saw my post on Christmas Eve --- our fur baby Mr. Dandy hurt his paw on Christmas Eve at the in-laws... and all night he was crying (and not just went he went to walk... he was just crying randomly) :(:(:( Well this morning, he wasn't feeling too much better...yelping a lot :( he wouldn't even eat his cookie doggy treat that was in his stocking ....  (he only licked it...) :(

After we finally got him to eat a little -- he improved a little  --- we are still watching him though... we are going to take him to the vet's today to check him out ... Thank you all for the well wishes for him :):):):):)

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