Been awhile......

since I've posted. I guess with shopping over the holidays can do that. Take up all your time, that is, lol
We had a good Christmas overall. I actually started early, but ended up spending way more then I usually do.
We have a new addition to our family. Puppy Bailey. He is almost 3 months now. My Grandson has also had a birthday recently, he is 1 yr old now!
I spent New Years Eve in, as I usually do, lol, with a few drinks. I think I was in bed before 12.
I am slowly getting my pixel muse back. It has came and left many times since last summer. It seems to be happening to a lot of pixel artists lately as well it seems, as hardly no one is updating.
You can see my pixel site here. I am hoping to get started on my next updates tonight.

Twas a long tiring day...

So much for a relaxing Saturday.
The day started at 8 am when Sarah woke me up. Sarah and I worked on our Gingerbread house. Afterwards, I went shopping. I got a few major things on my list so it was an accomplishment.
Then my Grandson came over. Now the plan was for him to stay over, then we were going to see Santa tomorrow, but well, he just did NOT want to sleep! At 9:30 I decided it was best to take him home. I think he missed his own bed.
Speaking of bed......I need to go now....
Here is a couple pics of my youngest daughter and our Gingerbread house, and another of Aunt Sarah and Kaiden(my Grandson).

Cheers to school being in!

Here is a pic of Sarah I took yesterday while she played in the snow for a bit.
I am having a lot of fun using these scrap kits I am finding. This photo template is by "Shabby Miss Jenn Designs"
Today was Sarah's first day back this week at school after being off all week due to bad weather. So I was finally able to get a bit more Christmas shopping done. My goal is to be done by or before next Friday.

Christmas Tree and Snowstorm

My tree is up! Very unusual as I like to wait as long as possible. My Christmas tree looks different this year then any year before. The colors are turquoise and silver, with white lights. Trees of past, were quite ugly with a mish mash of colors, and colored lights. Could it be that's why I got the tree up as late as I could and as early as I cold? Not sure how I feel about this tree, I almost feel like I am cheating by breaking out of my normal tradition. Yes, ugly and boring.

On a bad note, we are in the process of a nasty snowstorm, the first of this season. It started Sunday night (I am writing this in the wee hours of Weds), and it is still going strong. Yes with snow comes school closures of course. Today made 5 days in a row, Sarah has been home with me.(Friday she was sick. Isn't it funny how kids never get sick on a snow day? Sarah has been keeping me entertained with many things. The girl loves to sing, unfortunately for me, she sometimes has a singing voice like Edith Bunker. To anyone old enough to remember (lol) the 70's, you may remember Archie Bunker. Remember now? The opening song, "Those were the Days".
I really need to get myself a pair of earplugs, to have on hand, for the next snow days.

Another Thanksgiving has gone...

It was a small gathering for me, my 3 youngest kids, and my grandson. We had our dinner on Sunday, as I usually do, as do others.
I notice a lot of people have ham for Thanksgiving. I wonder if that's because they don't like turkey? I cannot imagine Thanksgiving without turkey.
I have ham many times throughout the year, so eating ham, is just not special to me, lol
I usually have turkey twice a year, Thanksgiving, and at Christmas.
Speaking of Christmas, its' only a couple months away. I am looking forward to it also.
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, btw.
