A Happy Birthday & Catching Up

Happy Hip Hop, Peeps! :) I found my camera charger! Well, I found the charger to my old camera which I still haven't sold yet. Hey, it's better than my phone! While I was loading my photos to my computer I realized that I also had a zillion pictures on this camera from Christmas & even Halloween. Seriously?!? I'm really behind here. I'm playing catch up and might actually be gaining on the mountain of 'to-do's' but I was really surprised by the 'lost' photos. I will catch y'all up in just a bit with a few.

....but first, it's time for more Unity goodness. I used this weeks CPS sketch for this one. LOVE this super clean sketch. You can view it at the CPS blog here. Take a peek.....

This is one of my favorite birthday sets. It's from Ippity and called Party Hat Wishes. I love this super cute 'eye' chart with the special birthday message. I used some of my Jillibean Soup papers for this one as well as a bit of left-over ribbon that I had in my stash of stuff.


See the entire Ippity kit here.


Now it's time to head on over to Jessica's blog for more Unity goodness. :) Hope you all have a great weekend!

So now to a bit of what's been going on here while I've been away. I would share the Halloween pics but....there are none! Seriously?!? From me! This year we had friends join us for trick-or-treating. We had so much fun but I was so busy taking pics of everyone else....my kiddo's were off gathering candy!....and I was so busy fixing the beverages and food that I missed everything! Luckily my friends took some for me but I haven't gotten them quite yet. Keeping my fingers crossed they show up! ;) Christmas was a blur. We made treats for everyone again. One of the things we tried this year was chocolate covered pretzel sticks....they were covered in soooo much more! ....caramel, chocolate, toffee...oh my! Here's a picture...



The first few I dipped in chocolate....not so visually appealling. I will leave off my 8 year olds description. ;)


Eventually we made our way to santa. I brought my camera. They will let you take pics as long as you purchase a package. Every year I end up with the greatest picture of some random 'santa' while my children look like they are posing for a future mug shot. This year I was determined to get at least ONE good one of my boys. ;) I like this one....


....our Minion Madness...... ;)


Hayden was quite excited about this one. ;) Maybe more excited than seeing santa. ;)


That's all I have for now. All of my Lacrosse pics from this weekend were also on this card but I will save those for later....or for a later scrapbook page.


Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! :)
