The Holidays!

Down to the last final days and I am rushing around like a mad woman (as usual). While, the kids gifts are pretty much packaged and ready to be ripped apart I still have so much more gift shopping to do. I am one of those crazies that is out shopping on Christmas Eve. However, I work Christmas Eve night so I am on a even tighter schedule this year! Really, I need to get my butt in gear!!

Our Christmas cards were sent and have been received...WHEW!! That was a toughy to get all the kids in a good mood long enough to get a pic...LOL...kinda--sorta. Haven't seen too much of the sun the last few weeks so the lighting was BA-HAD! It was just an all around BAD time by all. So, next year I vow to do everything different and I think it will make us all happy! I am just glad I was able to get them out this year. It has been hit or miss the past few years! I have gotten so many beautiful cards this year! I am so grateful to all who have sent us Holiday wishes!

We are having dinner here. I enjoy cooking and having my family gather at my home. It is something I look forward to every year! So, my house is all decorated (see our tree up there?!) and ready to go. JUST have some tidying up to with natural disasters (aka the kids) makes it a little hard to keep a clean home at all times!

Just some pics of the kiddies by the Christmas Tree...

Hope everyone has a lovely Holiday and Happy New Year! Are you ready? It will be here and then be gone before we know it. ENJOY it!

Let's talk trash!

Trash Ties that is! "The coolest new hair thingie" by Heather Bailey. I have several boxes on order (for gifts and for myself)--can't wait to try them out! My hair is seriously annoying! It is super fine and just doesn't do anything I want it to do! I was ready to chop it off until I read that Heather Bailey FINALLY released her long awaited Trash Ties! They come in 2 sizes and multiple colors! Endless styling possibilities!! Check out the website...and even better check out Heather's blog for some creative inspiration! :) (her link is also available in my "it's stalkerific" files...LOL!!).

Check them out!! If you try them please let me know how you like them!!
