Here comes the bride!

Well, the wedding day is here........for my sweet friends, Maegan and Vann (here's a few shots from a fun photo day at the park)! And, guess who the fabulous wedding director is! MOI! What were they thinking! That is hilarious!

I digress.

This cute little couple is just precious! I have watched her grow up from just a little girl, maybe 9 years old (that's old my chap is now). And, now, she is about to walk down the aisle. I can't believe it.

And, the worst part about it, my dear friend, Connie (the bride's mom!) is about to send her little girl down the aisle! As a bride! Oh my!

But, the rehearsal went great, and the church is gorgeous!

I can't wait to see the beautiful bride, and that handsome groom! I am so proud of them. I know that God has big plans for them, as they begin their life serving Him together. It's a great day.

The busy-ness of it all!


Well, this time of year, seems to be busy, busy, busy! But, on the other hand, it seems that we spend alot more time with family and friends. I like it!

We have had people "just drop in"more than usual, and have spent more time, just here, hanging out, and I like it!

I baked a LOT this year! Well, not really "baked", but just made some yummies! And, yes, the boys LOVED giving them out to all of their teachers, helpers, janitors, you name it!

The egg nog? Well, the minute I see it hit the shelves, we start buying it, well, we drink it a little, but I mostly use it for Egg Nog French Toast! And, let me tell you, it is so yummy! So, I make it until the Egg Nog disappears from the stores, and then we wait until next year!

These little beauties are for Scott's work, and all of those that work with/for him.

And, finally, Merry Christmas from us to you!

Cocoa and Canvas

Well, for Chappy's 9th birthday, I was feeling a little adventurous......or maybe just a little crazy!

But, I tell you, Sips n Strokes ain't got nothing on us!

Check out these little cuties!

17 Santa Bellies! I love it!

We had a blast. The kids were GREAT! The paintings are precious!

And, again, I am thankful for my studio!

Santa Shop time again!

So, I have the most fun in the Santa Shop at Chapman's school! I spend all year, buying stuff, finding little deals and treasures, and then, when it gets here, we set it all up,and they come.......boy do they come! Tons of them, millions of little people with their cash and their list.

Side note: Why in the world would a mother send their K-5 child to school with $25 cash! Are you crazy!

So, they shop, we wrap......and wrap........and wrap!

Here are just a few funny tidbits from my first 2 days this year:
Me: So, do you need a gift for mom? Or grandma?
Kid: No, grandma died and I don't have a mom.

(Quick note to self: SHUT YOUR MOUTH)
Me: Oh, who is this cute dog bowl for.
Kid: My mom, she loves dog bowls.
Me: Who is the little journal for?
Kid: My dog.
Me: Your dog? The notebook is for your dog?
Kid: Yes, I am gonna draw his picture in it!
Me: Do you want me to wrap this ponytail holder?
Kid: No
Me: What about the pencils?
Kid: No
Me: What about the mirror?
Kid: No
Me: Do you want me to wrap any of it?
Kid: No, it's all for me. I like to shop!
Me: Ok, that will be $9
Kid: Do you take credit?
Me: Now, you need to remember to get a gift for mom.
Kid: Oh, I will get her this, she can put her beer in it.
Geez, I love a kid!

Wow! What a weekend!

Well, I guess we are not big enough fans, because our cheering did not pull 'em through!

Oh well. It was fun! And, heck, the king size bed was just what I needed for a getaway!!!

So, before I left, I played a little with my new Crop Suey Kit and here's what I made!

And, I played with my scripts kit too! I will post those pics soon!

Roll 'Em Tide!

Well, we are here! In ATL for the SEC Championship game! Wow, it is crazy here.........ROOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL Tide screamed everywhere you turn! I don't know if I have ever seen so much houndstooth........even more than on campus. I love it!

So, this pic is blurry, but who cares.......we were having fun in the elevator!

And of course, I was thinking of my friend, gretch, when I took this pic! Dr. Pepper boxes stacked up for this cute little display! Here's to you, gmac!

And, now, I guess I gotta go! Scott just reminded me of this:
