Family Photo

Jeff doesn't have any current family photos in his office so I made this layout for him to put up. Give me some paper, glue, stickers and embellishments and I am soooo in my element. I just love spending time in my office and with a few more days of Christmas Vacation, I hope to do even more scrapping!

All the Excitement of Christmas!!

My parents joined us Christmas Eve for dinner and then spent the night to watch the kids open presents the next morning.

What a great Christmas! Very low key but lots of fun family memories. We all got spoiled by Santa. He seems to know just what everyone wants!

Family Tradtitions

Each year we make a family gingerbread house. We put it off till the last minute this year because the past few years, Conner has started eating it as soon as it is finished. To my surprise, he didn't eat any of it this year. What I beautiful family I have! Life is GOOD!

Preschool Christmas Party

Looking a little mischevious! Conner wouldn't perform the program in front of the parents but he would definitely sit on Santa's lap!

Wow, making his very own gingerbread house was so much fun!!

Christmas Lights

No this isn't my house, (I actually like my house better) but I am just wishing mine were lit up this beautifully! I have been trying to get Jeff to hang lights for years and he thinks lighting up the inside is enough, besides he starts his busiest time of year in October, just the right time to hang lights. I have to say, I love having many trees and lights inside too but I think it is just so beautiful to drive up to a beautifully lit house. Who knows maybe next year, I can keep hoping!! Maybe I'll have to ask Santa!

Ohhhh I love it!!!!

I subscribe to the most amazing scrapbook kit club EVER!!! It is called Scarlet Lime and is amazing every month. I don't know how Christy does it but she comes up with the funnest products I've never seen before. She has all the connections! In addition to the monthly kit club, she does a monthly project kit also. The December kit was these darling Christmas Ornaments! The pictures don't do them justice but they are so stinkin cute I can hardly stand it!!! There is beads, ribbon, glitter, felt (yes, I cut and sewed the cute bird) and rhinestones. If you've ever thought about becoming a member of a kit club before, (I know, I'm obsessed) Scarlet Lime is THE BEST!!!! Check out their website of past artist galleries @

So, I took Conner to the library the other day and he picked out some Arthur books. Well, he loved them so much we had to go back a few days later and get some new ones and we visited the video department and found a bunch of Arthur DVD's as well. Kenzie and Kaden loved Arthur when they were little too so when I put in the DVD's it was just like old times for all the kids to be enjoying Arthur. It sure beats Spongebob!!!!!!

Poulsen Cousins

Thanksgiving was at our house this year and guess what..... we went to Chuck A Rama for dinner! I just couldn't deal with the stress of the whole dinner thing this year. We loved having the family here but we were missing a couple. Jeff's brother Kevin didn't make it and stayed in Arizona and his Nephew Josh is serving a mission in Brazil. Other than that we had the whole family here and my parents as well. It is so great to spend time with family and especially around the holidays.
