I'm soooo excited!!!

I'm so excited!! The mailman just drove up and you know what that means??? A PACKAGE! It was my Amazon order and I forgot what I had ordered so I was so excited when I opened the box and saw the "Slumdog Millionaire"CD!! Whoohoo! I immediately had Lil put it on so now we are doing art to the Slumdog musica! 5 stars all the way! Of course how can it be anything but fabulous considering the awesome movie!

Lily is making things to put on her etsy and I am working on making a banner for her etsy store! I have been hounding her to get an etsy shop going for sooo long! I'm excited she's finally going for it!!

Current Favorites and such....

Ahh, I don't know why but I love the music of Blue October! I love to do art while listening to them. And I can't figure it out because I am not a "rocker chick" (: Something about them, his voice, their lyrics....... And then yesterday I downloaded Angels on the Moon by Thriving Ivory, another rocker-ish song! Quite the contrast to Sarah McLachlan whom I just loaded all 4 cd's onto my ipod too!

Current read is Saffron Kitchen by Yasmine Crowther. Nice book, I have a feeling some tears might be shed though. That's ok. It was time for a change. I just finished the four books that make up the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer. They were ok. I don't know, something about them made me come back to read each addition book. Hmm, not sure what my next book will be. I can't wait to browse my shelves though.

Ahhh, my beautiful girls....

I love having girls! I am a girlie girl and so are they. That explains the need for them to do "modeling shoots". That's what they call them. Jas will come home for the weekend and con Cam into giving up precious study time (why isn't Jas studying?) to have a "modeling shoot" then they have to download them and see who can create the coolest look with photoshop. The stark photos Jas calls the "Marc Jacob" shoot. No make up and really random poses. Cami calls the ones with her and Lil the "twinnies" shoot. People mistake them for twins! Weird!
NOTE: Pearliss made a cameo with Jasi!

The Trifle!!

I forgot to address "The Trifle"!! I made a chocolate peppermint trifle for Christmas dessert. It was Martha's recipe and easy but many steps! It called for chocolate liqueur which I had to go buy. They recommended Godiva but gee whiz, $30 a bottle? The big guy was with, so I had to buy another brand at $10 a bottle. I am sure it wasn't as good BUT no matter I didn't use much anyway. The trifle was delicious but very very rich. And it looked so pretty!!

I also loaded up a picture of Sophie on Cami's scrapping table at Christmas time. Cam was working on a very awesome scrapbook for Jas for Christmas and Soph had to be in on the action!! She is the "Sophie Jekyl Sophie Hyde" kitty....multiple personalities....

And here is the "Snowman thank you" card I made Looney's Mom for sending her delicious cookies to the tea party!! Also, I finished Laveda's birthday card and it turned out real cute! The Queen Bird!!

Some Christmas Photos......

Since the Big Guy worked all Christmas Eve and Christmas Day it seems like Christmas never happened for me!! It was not planned to happen that way but when duty calls I guess there is no choice......So we all kept waiting for Dad to get home and didn't want to open gifts or have dinner until he got home even though we didn't know when that was going to be!! Finally around 6pm Christmas night he came home bleary eyed with fatigue but ready to "get the party started"!! The pictures are of my three beautiful girls, me and Cami, me with Lily's drawing of my 4th child Zoe (so precious, I cried) and me with the touching scrapbook Cami made of all our furry and feathered pets!!
