Texas Christmas Tour

Here's a little tour of  Christmas Texas style!!!
Down here in Texas we have to make our own snow!!! We drive to the nearest
craft store and buy it in a bag.
Down here in Texas this is the closest that we are going to come to having a
 white Christmas! If you squint your eyes it does kinda look like snow!!!
This is part of the TEXAS snow village!!! Look how cute the snow looks on the roof!!
My PINK church!!!  I had to get some pink in there somewhere!
No chopping down of the Christmas tree here!! These babies are store bought!

This is my favorite!!! I made this stockings years ago when I did not have very good sewing skills!! I keep saying that I am going to re-sew them, but I never get around to it!!! Notice the fire-place??? It's never been used! 
Here is our front stair case! I just love the sparkly garland and the feathers!!!
Here in Texas we use a lot of feathers!!!
O.K. Here is the funniest thing!!! Remember the first fire place??? Well this is the second fire place! For heavens sake we live in Texas who needs 2 fire-places?
But, I do like to decorate it, since we never use it!
Hark the Herald Angels sing, glory to the new born KING!!!

Winter Wonderland Party

Connor's 5th grade celebrated their WINTER WONDERLAND PARTY on Friday!!
Notice I called it winter wonderland because we have to be politically correct and we can not say Christmas!!!(but don't even get me started on that)
This is my PTA position 5th grade celebrations! ( I have done it for Cody and Kyle) so they suckered me into doing it one last time.
The kids all had a blast!!!!
Here is Connor in the middle of the crowd doing the Macarana!(sp)
We have all of the 5th grade classes come to the cafeteria and celebrate as
one big group!!!
This is Connor's way too cool teacher in the black
 Mrs. Kerstetter.
Notice her very cute t-shirt. That's what Connor and I gave her for Christmas. 
It says 5th grade Rocks! Of course all of the teachers want one!!!
Connor doing the bunny-hop!!! You can see on the stage we have a D.J. he is so
awesome and I have used him for the last few years for all of the parties!
He really gets the party going!!!!
This was one of the projects I worked on this week. This is the back drop we used to take class pictures!!! I had to beg Connor to come and take a picture with me! You know how embarrassing I am? HA>>>
Just one glitch with the party...we did not have electricity until about noon and the party stated at 1:15. So we we all getting a little nervous. That's why you see me in my wonderful baseball cap, no dryer, no flat-iron, no fixen' the hair!
p.s. I forgot to tell you that Connor got his cast off last week and he has to wear a splint for 2 weeks...

Miss Anne Made My Day!!!!

I was so excited to see this on my front porch when I got home!!
A few months ago I started blogging with the double-darling Miss Anne.
She suggested that we do a swap! One of my pieces of jewelry for one of her canvases.

Not only did I get this way too cute package she also included some labels for my new business!
How sweet is she????
This is my " FREAKIN" WAY TOO COOL canvas that she made. I just told her I want a big letter H on it and love the colors black and brown and for her to surprise me!!!
Well, she not only surprised me but but it is perfect!!!
The big letter H, blacks, browns, a crown (she nailed that one) and she added a saying 
"family runs deeper that anything else."
Oh, I just love it!!!!
And she even added some bling-bling (a girl after my own heart)

So go check out the way too cool Miss Anne and maybe if you are lucky she can make you one!

The "stupid","bloody", Christmas cards are done!!!

I have finally finished the Christmas cards!!!!
I'm just a little behind this year. I would normally have them mailed by now. But this year, I decided to wait until the most popular day of the year to mail them out! Did you know that today is the #1 day of the year to mail things out????
Here is where the bloody part comes in. I got a really bad paper cut. Can you see my little finger all bloody? I promise I did not compromise any of the cards!
See, I ran quickly to get a band-aid!!! See how painful it looks!!!
Here is were the stupid part comes in. 
This is the first time in a while that I have bought cards and placed my own picture on them. Well, apparently the card people think that we are really stupid, because they have this printed on EVERY card. 
ATTACH PHOTO HERE=because we think you are stupid
HORIZONTAL OR VERTICAL = because we think you would put it diagonally 
ACCOMMODATES 4x6= because you might be stupid and use a 8x10.

So after doing about 75 of these, and reading this on 
 I'm feeling kinda SMART,
 because I didn't mess up on any of them!!!!

I'm a WINNER!!!

Look what I won!!!! I am so excited. This is going to go perfect in my house....
The very cool, cute, talented and of course hip Angie at angelicagracedesigns had a giveaway and I won!!! Yea for me! Her very cute and sweet little girl Kenidi picked my name.
Thanks so much girls, I can't wait to put this in my house!!!!


The boyz and I went to a party last night and this is what we came home to!!!!
I guess it is official, "I HAVE TEENAGE KIDS"
Welcome to the wonderful world of teenage pranks!!!!
We got Toilet papered last night!
Actually, I thought it was kinda funny, so I ran out and took pictures.
This is what the mess looked like from our front porch!
These are the cute signs that were left in my Christmas decorations!
Notice the hearts? I'm thinking it was some girls that did this! What do you think?
This was the first thing that got thrown away! It says Obama baby!
In this house we are still McCain fans.
Notice the cute hearts, that's a true girl's work!!

Oh man, I should have turned on the Christmas lights! That would have really made the t.p. sparkle.

The boyz and I cleaned up the mess this morning and the yard is back to normal!!!
Well, until next weekend!

I'm Back.......

I'm back......
I know I have been a very bad blogger! With everything that has been going on all I can say is that I have been in a funk. You all know that I had my surgery and had the lump removed. So glad that is over. It took me about 3 days to fully get back into the swing of things. I had to wait 2 yes 2 weeks that is 14 long days for the results. Hip hubby and I went last Thursday and the doctor came in and the first words out of his mouth were "it's all good" I am clear, I have nothing and I am good to go........YEA!!! I felt like the wait of the world has been lifted. 
So I have so much to tell you guys.....
I have been working on opening up a store (web site store) It's called are you ready for this
Isn't that so me! I am having the web site built right now so it is under construction. 
IF you are wondering about the painting? This is something that little old me made. I will have others to sale on the site along with all of my sparkly jewels, hats, and I am having a line of t-shirts designs......
I just had to show off my 3 heart canvas. This is my world.....3 hearts for my 3 boyz, crowns cuz they are the crown jewels of my life,  bling because they light up my life and leopard well just cuz mama like her some leopard.
