Just Some Random Odds & Ends

It is 10:25 p.m. and Nicholas is finally asleep. Hopefully he is out for the night. I am sitting here watching the Radio City Rockettes Christmas Spectacular on ON DEMAND (comcast) ->WOW! How do these women do it? I'd fall over. I would so love to see this live. It's amazing! The toy soliders are on right now. This is definitely something I will have to take Nicholas to see when he is a little older.

This is what it looked like this morning out my front door:

My icey tree. 1 inch of ice fell and then a slight dusting of snow. My street looked like an ice rink. CRAZY! I waited until everything was plowed and finally went out to run a few errands about 2:30 p.m. Target was crowded! So glad my christmas shopping is done.

Snow is expected and in the forecast for tonight, tomorrow afternoon and also Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I WOULD SO LOVE A WHITE CHRISTMAS!
UM, what is this about?
I was making dinner tonight while Nicholas watched his favorite show - Wow Wow Wubbzy. He was laying on his little couch. I look over and this is what I see. I, of course grabbed my camera and ran over there and took some pictures. And he started laughing when I said EWWW, Nicholas stinky toes, no no.
I really want to scrap but I feel idea-less. I need to get organized and I am a little tired right now but hopefully tomorrow I will start scrapping. My goal is to do a little bit of scrappy each day of my vacation and since I don't go back until January 5th, I hope I will get quite a few layouts done!
Well that's it for now. Tomorrow I should be back with a brand new layout (hopefully if all goes well).

Jan please email me at with your address and I will get your RAK out to you this week.

Thanks for all the advice! I attempted the photos last night and tonight with no success. Mostly because I couldn't get Nicholas to look at me. He wanted to look everywhere else, pull on the ornaments and bows on the packages, etc. I will try again tomorrow. I just need one semi-decent picture.

Hope everyone had a great weekend. I spent my shopping and am happy to say I am almost done! Whew! It is a relief to know I only have a few small things left to get.

1 week and 1 day - the Coutdown begins AND A RAK!

I have ONE week and ONE day left of work before I am on vacation for the rest of the year! I cannot believe Christmas is almost here and with it the end of the year. Where has the time gone? 2 whole (although busy) weeks to spend with my family at home. Enjoying the season, baking cookies, getting the house ready for the holidays. I can't wait. I can't wait to pull out my scrapping supplies and get every memory down on paper for my gorgeous son who is growing so quickly. It makes me sad. 16 months old, almost 29 lbs (yes you read that right). Talking, walking, running, just constantly on the go.

This was him last year at this time:

And since we haven't gotten many pictures by the tree because he has been so sick and crabby here is the best I can do so far this year.

I can't believe how much he has grown in a year and everything he has learned.

Okay so this weekend I will be taking pictures in front of our christmas tree with my son and step daughter for our christmas cards. All the pictures I took last weekend with my flash off to get a good picture of the tree in it's full nighttime glory came out with different colored squiggly lines all over. ETA: I should add that I have an SLR (nikon D40).

So please leave me a comment with some advice. What is the best way to take a nice christmas tree photo in the evening so that my christmas cards will be pretty. No squiggly lines!!! Here is what I am talking about.

See that's just bad!

In exchange for your advice I will pick a winner on Sunday morning from my comments by and send them a cute little rak. The rak will include a little UNITY love!
Hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season!

Have you heard?

My favorite Stamp company is having a Scrapbook Design Team call! YIPPEEE! Check out the details: Unity Stamp Company.

I realized I haven't posted in quite awhile. Life has been busy lately. That and the fact that I have not been getting much sleep. Nicholas (16 months) wakes up 3 or 4 times a night now. I can't figure out why. Sometimes when he wakes up, he stays up for an hour or more. Anyone have any advice? I could definitely use it. I've tried just about everything!

I haven't updated the blog with any new scrappy projects lately. So here we go:
How cute is she. My little niece Sara. Love her to bits.

My little man. I DO MY OWN STUNTS BABY! is from a Zany Zinnia kit. And 1st Swim I believe is from a past ScrapRoom kit (not the best pictures - but it's 10:40 p.m. right now!)

How adorable am I? This is some crate paper. Loved this line!

And here is the most recent layout that I just did for the Unity Wednesday Addict Challenge. YOu can find the info on the SCS forums. I am so in love with this little deer from the Unity November kit of the month. Did you see the December kit? I can't wait to see it in person! Everything else on the layout is from the Studio Calico Looking Glass kit. Again not the best pictures but they will have to do for now.
Well I am off to LALA land now for at least an hour before Nicholas wakes up for the 1st of what I am sure will be numerous times tonight. Goodnight!
