Merry Christmas....a couple days late...

Merry Christmas to all!!! Running a bit late on the salutations....but I am running late on my Holiday Cards also. Good thing that they say Happy Holidays rather than Merry Christmas!

Here is the picture that comes with the card...

They are too cute! My girlfriend Sondy (who designs stationary) did our cards with some of my designs and then the photo of the kids. Love it...Love her!

Over the past few weeks I have been furiously making Christmas Presents. Still not done with a few of my Wish Birds but luckily I have some time this week to get them to my friends.

Some birds....

I made a bag for each bird to "wrap" them in. I couldn't think of any other way to wrap up the bird. My husband thought I was crazy to do so much but I just couldn't help myself. They have to look right and feel right for me otherwise I am not going to give them away....
For my girl Andrea.
For my mama.

In the meantime I received my strike-offs for my Spring Collection....want a sneak peak?!
It all looked wonderful! What a great Christmas gift!

Our day was so fun with the kiddos. Ross and I were so excited that we didn't sleep well....The morning 5:30 a.m. was filled with wonder and amazement of Santa and presents. The weather was pretty good so Ross, the girls, my parents and I hiked down into the canyon. There was defiantly some snow but manageable. The canyon and creek were absolutely beautiful. Couldn't believe that we hadn't been down there in ages. In the summer I am cautious of the rattlesnakes and cougars. Well, cougars anytime but there were a lot of us and the dogs. The girls did great in the snow until the end of the hike when we had to climb out of the canyon. I carried Olivia on my back and Ross carried Violette. Not sure how I got the bigger kid. Better work out for me with all the yummy food and drinks it was good calorie burn.

Now we are on a cleaning mode. We thoroughly went through the kids rooms yesterday. I am wondering how long all of my baskets will stay organized???!! Tomorrow will be the laundry room and what ever else we can get to. My pantry needs a good cleaning and mom gave me great containers for organizing it. Just have to get my motivation up for it. Cleaning is not one of my favorite things, I really have to get over that.

Now back to work before the kids get home from meme's and papa's.
