I wanted to rotate this pic but for the life of me I can't remember how I did it the other day!
Anyways, This is Maddi's stamp set she picked it out for Christmas, she got this set and a box of blank cards. She also got a Scrapbook with a bunch of papers and stickers included. She is a very happy girl, we made a page in her scrapbook today, but while cutting her stamp set for her tonight I just happen to stamp this card (I always need older boys and men cards) . Maddi walked in a caught me stamping with her set. She teased me but then said it was okay to use it as long as I ask first next time. (sound familar? huh I only tell her that all the time :) Anyways I plan on checking splitcoast for some ideas on this set. Having a creative you can see.

more scrapbook pages from Maddi's book

My sweet girl!

Maddi's prince charmings

Maddi's pages. the boys wrote her a small note, she actually got emotional when we read them to her. I'm going to wait just a little bit longer to have Ethan write something (for obvious reasons ;)

Benchwarmer by choice

Maddi Loved the idea of soccer and thought it looked like fun so at 4yrs we signed her up (let me tell you juggling 3 soccer scheduals was way more complicated than 2) anyways Maddi didnt like the games and was just a little to shy so we will try again when she is older if she wants.

Scrapbook frame

Soccer Scrapbooking Frame I think I will give it to Bailey. No SU except some paper.
A scrapbook page I made using just my cricut expressions. This toy will never get old!

Christmas Eve

This is the kids with thier Christmas pj's and movies that they get every year on Christmas Eve. Ethan was only half awake for this picture.

priceless gift (and free)

The best gifts really are not just free they are priceless!

She made this cupcake ALL by herself!!! This was her present from Santa. These are the moments that make all that shopping and wrapping worth it.

It looks like poop!!! But she was so happy!


my mommy and daddy, so sweet!
Daddy's annual screwdriver present from Micah!

Nieces and Nephews

My children and my nieces and nephews the oldest are 18yrs old and the baby is my 3yr old Ethan. 11 grandchildren total for my parents. Unless..............not really Scott says I can't have no more!
Ethan with his absolute favorite toy Spiderman but only this one will do we've tried giving him other ones when he misplaces this one and he refuses them. He's too cute!

Its warm outside

Well the cold weather streak broke , at least for a few days today was in the fifties (in December!!!!) what a great break! I actually cleaned the junk out of the car (doesnt happen much in the winter) I would love to wash it but $ is tight and the hose is down for the winter so I will just have to settle for the inside being cleaned out! oh great the Tampa Bay Bucs just lost now they wont be in the play offs 'and the hubby will not be a happy camper today :( Anyways Ethan just informed me he wants sgetti-etballs" which is Ethan for Spagetti and meatballs. He's a little early for dinner but his small belly is always growling ( I swear he has a hollow leg) He is such a buisy boy, I love him so much! I wanted to get some cards made and posted today but I didnt even take the kids to the nutcracker today like I had planned, only to church and a special Mc Donalds visit. cost over $16 so ridiculous for junk food. I will post later
Rubber hugs, Amy

My future floor plan? well maybe I have been drolling over this floor plan for at least 4 yrs now. I am hoping this spring if we are lucky, and everything works out, but I have been let down many a times before! This is 3 times bigger than what we live in now and I can only imagine the possiblities for storage....ya know a place for everything and everything in its place. Anyways, I must get offline, Ethan is the only one up (as usual) and is demanding my attention! Besides I think I have made up for my lack of posting! Later


My Mikey with Santa

it stands by its self and has room for journaling or pics on one of the pages I put a picture of my mom who gave that paticular recipe.

Cover of the cook book

Okay fellow stampers here is a calender page from the calender and cookbook class I just had on

Saturday. SU colors bash blue, navy blue and brocade blue and of course white

I am still learning how to use the scallop punch, some of my corners are double scallops and some are only half there, but it still looks cute. I'm giving mine to my mother-in-law and I know she'll like it!

My Best friend and niece, Brittany (blue shirt) and ME. Thanksgiving at grandma's house.
I did it I figured how to rotate the picture, although its a pain
Posted by Picasa

this was taken at the train station, It was a day sponsored by the Austism society. I was a nice day. the kids like it, but on the ride back the kids were ready to go home

better late than never....this pic taken at Sandy Cove, MD. in July. This is one of my fav pics Ethan looks like his dad and me shaken up together!

I tried to rotate again it just isnt working if anyone know how please let me know!
One of the perks to having my Sexy DH home from work is he can have facial hair! woohoo! I LOVE scruff and usuall I only get a weekends worth of it. By the way I tried to rotate the picture but I so am not a computer or blog whiz so this will have to do!
you think my kids would like to go to the beach? until then they opted to just bury daddy in the snow instead!

So.....its been a while!!!

I apologize it has been crazy wonderful around here. I love this time of year!!! I am so in love with Christmas and all the trimmings. I love everything except the absolute fridgid weather we have had here lately. (so if you didn't know I'm not a cold weather person...and no I dont know why I still remain living in Pa, just family I guess) Anyways, Life has been so different lately, Scott (my DH) has been home from work over 4wks, because of a car accident. It totally has changed my routine and anyone who knows me knows how important my routine and rituals are to me. So it is really taking some adjusting. Although I will go through sever withdraws when he does go back to work, MOST ;) the time I love having him around.LOL.

By the way I stupidly sent all the teachers gifts (all 6 of them) to school with the kids today without taking pictures so I cant post them here. but my new year resolution is to post more projects and cards here!!!
Anyways on to posting some pics of the kids (cuz I always have lots of those) and then off to start our bedtime ritual! Later!
