I also try to always take a photo of the kids in front of the tree before opening gifts on Christmas morning. Last year it wasn't too successful though (see previous post) and I'm hopeful that this year I will get my photos. Hopeful, but I'm willing to take whatever I can get, LOL. My little Rachel is quite demanding, and I have a feeling we will have a few tears throughout Christmas morning. Why? Because we do not do a 'free for all' type of gift opening. We open them slowly, taking turns so we can see what the other person is getting too. I fear this will be just too much for my 2-year old, lol. Oh well, it will make for a fun page!
And here are my most recent pages:

Christmas Spirit: credits here.
BRRR: credits here.
Christmas Cheer: credits here.

In case you are wondering what's up with the nontraditional page shapes... I have noticed lots of paper scrappers scrapping 6x12 layouts. I thought this was a great idea so that I can print some pages at Costco without wasting space :) It's kind of fun to do something different as well.
I also want to wish each of you a happy and safe holiday! Merry Christmas!
I'll see you in about 2 weeks, have a fun winter vacation!

Today, for the first time in weeks, I'm actually feeling pretty great. And my family will definitely benefit, because I am actually cooking tonight. We have been living on my husbands cooking, take-out or simple dishes like... pancakes, LOL. Finally we will be getting back to our regular routine.
In fact, I was feeling so good that we even decorated cookies today. Boy, nothing is much more fun or messier than watching a two-year old go at a bunch of sugar cookies with frosting and candy toppings, LOL. I haven't downloaded my photos yet, so I can't share... maybe next time.
Here are a couple of layouts of my sweet girls. Have a great day everybody!

And I'm totally loving Tracey Monette's new paper pack, Colour Outside the Lines. I think I will do a monochromatic page using each of these papers because I was quite happy with the way this one came out. See here for credits.
Okay I have to admit, I cringed when I saw a Christmas layout in the gallery on November 1st. I actually cringed, LOL. It's too soon!!! But two weeks later I am beginning to get in the mood and I'm also starting to see some cute Christmas products in the stores.
Well let me ask you, is there anyone that doesn't love a brush by Michelle Coleman? She has a new snowflake brush that is (I feel like a geek whenever I say it, but here it comes) awesome.
And speaking of awesome, are you guys watching Chuck on Monday nights? It has quickly become my favorite show, I love it. And I love it when they call the sister's boyfriend Captain Awesome, LOL.
And check out these snowflakes by Jackie Eckles and these ones by Leora Sanford. I love a good snowflake... can you tell?
Well, I know there are ton more Christmas products out there, and a ton more will appear within the next few weeks. It will be crazy trying choose which to buy, LOL. So good luck with that!
In the meantime, I think I will get started on some pages using snowflakes! Have a great day!

But over the last few weeks my first turned 8 years old and had her first slumber party. What chaos! LOL I can't believe the noise that little girls can create. Thank goodness the weather was nice so they could play outdoors part of the time. And as part of her present I took her to her first concert, the Hannah Montana/ Jonas Brothers tour. The only other times I can remember her being this excited was when she found out she was getting a sister and when she learned she was going to Disneyland. LOL
We had a good time. I told her that I had been to lots of rock concerts, but this was my first pop concert and she thought that was funny. LOL
On to scrapping...
Here are a few pages featuring my sweet Rachel:

Have a great weekend!
