Christmas Eve Madness!!!

I'm finishing work today at midday and Abbey will be with my in laws so I'm going to use that time to quickly (and I say that in the hope I can somehow defeat all odds and get in and out) pick up a few fresh food items to do us a couple of days as well as stop at the local BWS to get some vouchers for friends that have very generously helped us over the last couple of months looking after Abbey of an afternoon since I went back to work and then....wait for it....I'm officially finished with Christmas shopping!!!!!!!!! YAYYYYYY

We have presents hidden everywhere....tonight once Abbey goes to bed we'll be putting things together and wrapping whilst having a very quiet drink with some friends.

I'm so knackered, I can't wait for 10 days off :)

If I don't get another chance to post ....Merry Christmas from my family to yours. 

May your day be filled with those you care most about, I know mine will!!!!!!!!!

could this be our christmas card for 2010??

would you look at that beautifully blurred tree in the background!?!?!?!?  I have to say I'm not overly fond of the pic of Abbey (sshhh she's in her PJ's) but that background, LOVE IT!!!

busy busy busy!!!

The weeks are just flying by with work, Christmas shopping and spending time with my family.  Abbey has been booked out for the last 3 weekends.  She loves being invited over to put up everyone's Christmas trees.  Week 1 was our own tree, last week it was Aunty's (my Aunt, her great Aunt and godmother) and today it was Nanny and Poppy's tree.  Every year they invite all the grandkids over for a fun filled couple of hours of Christmas tree prep and fun in the sun.  Normally we hang around and watch but Hayles and I left the daddies with the kids decided to take the opportunity to get some more Chrissy shopping done without the kids....bliss!!

I'll leave you with a couple of Chrissy pics I've taken this weekend.  Trying to choose one for our Christmas cards is hard work when you love them all!!

look at all those presents!!!!  Shame none of them are for the little elf hiding among them!

Hopefully I'll get some scrapping done soon...I miss it!!

Grandparents Day

What a treat for Abbey this year to have both Nanny and Poppy at school for Grandparent's Day to have a look around her class room, check out some of her work and to participate in games and other things they had set up for the Grandparents. 

Here's my layout... created at the Storyboard Crop last Friday night - I've used the November Sketch from Anna's Craft Cupboard again.  Love this sketch!

It's the little things like hanging out with your Nanny and Poppy that create the best memories.  Whether it be at a function like Grandparent's Day or just getting stuck into Poppy's special ice-cream when we visit ....always lots of fun!!!

TFL, Shell xx

Go Dragons!

Last Friday night was the first crop night hosted by Lisa Warren of Storyboard kits.  Lisa started Storyboard Kits 6 months ago and has already gathered a huge following from local girls as well as girls from all over the country.  It was really lovely to meet up with quite a few of the Storyboard shoppers on Friday night.  We chatted and enjoyed the bliss that is scrapping without husbands or children.  I did 2 and a half layouts (the half is still a half, will hopefully get it finished this weekend).  Here is my first layout of the night.

I love these pics of Daniel and Abbey enjoying what is one of the best feelings...your footy team winning a grand final!!!

Hopefully I'll have time to share the other layout a little later this week.  Christmas is just around the corner and I really need to get organised.  That means not a lot of scrapping for me :(

hope you're all enjoying the approach of Christmas :)
