Holy Toledo!!

My last post was Nov. 20!!! How embarrassing!
I'm soo sorry I have been such a horrible blogger. December has been INSANE!
I think tomorrow will be our 5th party and we still have 2 or 3 more, a wedding rehearsal and wedding, 2 baby showers and 2 birthday parties before the end of the year...and Christmas and NYE of course. Add cooking and baking for almost every event, some fundraising to help our youth for their winter disciple now trip, basketball games and practices, shopping, wrapping, etc., etc....I don't remember being this busy last year...or ever, for that matter!
So...I really have not had a lot of time to do anything "fun" as in scrapping :(! HA! Just kiddding...I've actually been having a lot of fun.
Bry just got back today after visiting his NaNa for almost 2 weeks. I missed that little booger. Bad news is...he's sick. So he has a Dr. appt in the morning to find out what's going on in his little body. Corbin is supposed to have a friend over tomorrow after school, but that is now limbo...b/c of the little dude and his sickness. I think Corbin thinks B was only put here to make his life miserable. Poor Corb. I hope his friend gets to visit tomorrow.
Sooo...I guess I will give ya something to look at and not just my random rambles!
Here is a little project I did...I took an online class here (the 12 days of Christmas) and it was really fun. I have more stuff to make, but I'm really...TOTALLY behind on my online class :(


Our house was taken over by wreaths last week for one of the church fundraisers...messy, but it smelled so yummy. Not a smell we normally get here in the Panhandle. Usually it's more of a spicy sulfury smell. Ok, so not so much spicy...just real stinky. FYI: There are like 4 chemical plants in our small town.



Here are some pics from our visit to the 4 sixes ranch/abilene...








Finally I just have to share one of my FAVORITE sites to visit...Bakerella. She makes the cutest things. One of my faves, the cake pops are SOOO awesome. She just posted her Christmas cake pops this week and I love them! I made some a few months ago and they are YUMMM-MMMY! Takes a little bit of time to do, but so worth it. I'm hoping to make some for friends for Christmas!
Ok, so that is all for now. I have a million more pics to share.
We finally put the tree up tonight, so I'll try to get some good shots tomorrow night. I found some great info here!
