Ok... so I will be watching the fireworks at the Disney castle tonight and I am sure the pics I will get are going to be out of this world...What a way to bring in the New Year...I am surrounded by the people I love the most and I am in the happiest place on earth!! Yippie !! I hope you all have a great and safe night!! I was thinking that I would try to do some girl cards with the same papers but one for a younger girl and then maybe a bit older girl...here is how the younger one turned out.....I will post older one tomorrow.....

We are leaving for disneyland this morning at 6:00 am yikes !!! The 14 of us are off and soon to be running wild with mickey and Minnie!! So to keep you all up to date ...We have moved Kathy .and my dad....and my my brother and his family to their new house...they have a bit of work for themselves at the new house but all in good time right Kathy!!! We had and survived our sleepover with the little boys and had the big ones the night before...just for good measure!! and Christmas is done and done!! Yippie!! I am not glad it is over but I am glad it is over...Know what I mean!! We did get some fun things this year and I am so glad we decided to cut way back and have a smaller " gift " part of the holidays...we got a lot of things still but we made the little things count instead of a bunch of big things... The girls seemed happier to get the special few to play with....This time of year is all about kids so I have a week of kids cards to share while I am gone!! Enjoy!!

Getting back to everyday cards was exciting and a bit hard for me this year...but I have done a few I want to share!! I have missed these fishes!!!

While I wait and watch at dance for my girls ( about 12 hours a week) I x-stitch ...It is funny that lots of the little girls (7-16) are so interested in not only what I am making but how I do it and even some of them have started projects of their own and brought them in to show me! I am glad to share my progress with them and I love to see the pride of my own girls when they tell their friends about the project I am working on...I feel proud when the parents come in and jokingly say things like do you ever leave and ask if I am "still" working on the same thing...I am grateful to my hubby for working so hard so I can be the kind of mom that just sits and be with my girls and stitch for hours and they all don't want me to be anywhere else!! I wouldn't trade it for the world!! Here is what I made from Sept to last night! 192 hours to do it!! Worth every min. This is going in Ash's room and the next one will be for Hailey...If you are wondering how the quilt is going.....yep I am still on it but I am starting the 5th square!!!

Ok it was my garden...and I think that it is better this way ...I don't have to weed or decide what the heck I am going to do with it this year!!! I vote to keep it this way ...if only we could !!!! It will never last ...my kids will take it for their snow girl!!! I will post if they get her done!!

So the amount of cards I got in the mail this year was way down...It makes me sad because seeing them hanging up in my family room is part of the holidays for me!! I love to see how my family and friends are and I think cards are so important!! I did get some great ones but because we make our cards I like to feature those who do the same!! Diana has had her cards posted hear before and this one is just a great card!! Thanks!!
