Got a lot done!

I got Parker's room rearranged and a bit organized feels so good; however, it is a never ending job.

I created a gift using Photoshop Elements 7 - my new fun hobby...I am loving using it! I will share it with you once I give the gift.

So, I've been bloghopping tonight and came upon many sites that I bookmarked but one that I want to share. Scarfs are so popular right now and this is just the cutest. Check it out at ...I cannot wait to make one myself.

Good night for now - sleep well!

Snow can be so delicious and so fun....especially to our 3 year old - Parker Faith! Bless her!

I found the cutest simple stockings at Cracker Barrell...I had a vision to add a primative embroidery letter for a simple gift or gift tag - so I did one today and loved how it turned out.

I worked up my first digital memory page...I will print it as an 8X8. I love Christmas PJ's - yes, Colton could have had a better shirt on, but we still love him!

Enjoying the Christmas Season

We have been enjoying the Christmas Season and the school break with friends and family. We went to visit Aunt Dee, Hayden & Halle in Austin. We had a short but great visit. Aunt Dee came through for Sierra and helped us adopt a kitten for her. Sierra was elated with the idea and ability to get a kitten. She really loves animals and has missed having one since our 3 year old is a little (well a lot) timid toward moving creatures. We are all happy to welcome Mollee Jingle to our family.

I love it when Mike and I can get a picture of the two of us together...I love it more when I am happy with the Picture! Merry Christmas to all and to all a blessed day!

We are having a wonderfully beautiful Christmas here in the Southern Dallas area. Snow and very cold weather is making it feel ever more like Christmas. I was able to get pictures of Parker (my adorable 3 year old) and our house with a cutie pie girl (Parker) standing at the door.
