With the holiday approaching I have been busy making some candies and fruitcake. It seems like there just is not enough hours in a day when you have a day off. With both my husband and I working in retail it is a busy busy time.

I hope each and every person that reads my blog has the happiest of holidays and spends it with those you love.

A Few Layouts

I mentioned to our oldest daughter last May that I would like to have a kitten. The next morning she and one of our grand daughters brought us this tiny little pewter gray fur ball. A few days later our daughter and two of our grand babies came to visit. You can't tell from the pictures however, no cat was tormented to take these beautiful photos. As a matter of fact Maggie Magee played with our grandson with his toy train too.

The above layout brings back memories. Inside the snowman card is the explanation. Have you ever fallen asleep waiting for your babies to fall asleep Christmas Eve? Well, I did. Christmas morning I awoke to two precious baby girls crying. My oldest said "we was bad, we was real bad, Santa didn't bring us nuffin". It about broke my heart. I response was well Mommy fell asleep on the couch maybe Santa hid presents omewhere in the house. They were so happy when they found them in my closet. I hope I never forget this memory in my old age and if I do thankfully I scrapped it to remind me.

There are several years of photos in the above scrapped pages. I am in the process of sorting several years oof photos and scanning them to disk so they do not fade any further. Then I can send the discs to my daughters so they have pictures of the years of my memories. What did we ever do before computers? Isn't it amazing how just one photo can bring back so many memories? the weather, the season, the smells, the colors, they things we did and the things we hope for the future. I am thankful our two daughter grew to be such strong and elegant woman.

I haven't updated my blog in some time. With the holidays, work and family it seems time just flys.
