Christmas and the New Year

Well, after all of the shopping, running around, hiding gifts in the basement, wrapping, celebrating with family, Christmas is OVER. Every year I am always surprised by how fast it all goes by. We had a great Christmas. Lots of new toys for the kids to play with. Including a new Wii!! Ty and Kate were beyond thrilled with that! They had NO clue. Tyler even started to cry tears of joy. (So glad I had the video camera ready for that one)
Today I went through all the new clothes the kids got and started washing them. Not only did they get a lot of toys, they got a lot of clothes too. Thanks to my generous Aunt!
So, the next celebration will be New Years Eve! Any plans? We have none. Which is fine with me. I told my sister they could come over if they have no plans so we will see.
I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas and will have a safe and fun New Year celebration!

Blog Change

I was looking through my blog and felt like changing the colors. I think it looks good. I was getting tired of the black background.
I'm a little under the weather today. Not sure what the heck I have. Just know I really feel that great. Achey, sore throat, and tired. Fun. I just hope it doesn't last for Christmas. I still need to get a few presents too. Nothing like last minute shopping. I do it every year. You would think I would learn. I don't look forward to the last minute crowds. People just get nasty.
I haven't done a lot of scrapbooking but I did manage to get a few layouts done this past week.

One is for a challenge I posted at The Mosy Scrapper and the other is for a page idea that Christa posted.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!

My YouTube Star!

My son's class wrote and put together a video to put on YouTube! It is based on the Discovery Channels "Boom De Yada" commercial. They did a fantastic job...I know I'm biased, but they really did! They want to get a ton of hits so feel free to visit and watch their fun video.
Tyler is the one getting popcorn and saying "I love the movie nights!"
