Christmas Party!!

Had so much fun at the christmas party last night.........we showed up about an hour late...because somebody had the wrong time...I won't point any fingers....but her name sounds like beniece...hee,hee!! But as soon as we got there...we got to munch on some yummy...treats.....somebody made some yummy.....chocolate cheese cake......as you can see somebody liked it....ALOT....then she turns to me and asks if she has anything in her teeth.......she cracks me up!!me and jeniece in front of the tree at scrappy chic.......so sweet!!
and then erin took this one of us.....and tried to get the beautiful tree in the pic...it's so tall!!!!!!!!!! If you haven't seen it you should stop in...it's so pretty.
After we ate....we were checking out everybodys first scrapbooks....but for some reason, mine got the most giggles......one page in particular.....!! Which I will scan it and post it here tomorrow...so you can all have a chuckle....I think jeniece was laughing so hard....I think she was starting to tear up......
Then we all made an ornament........with the basic grey figgy pudding...papers
they were alot of fun to make....and they look so cute....I still need to add a couple pictures.....and the date...but even unfinished I like it!!

I felt bad that I didn't bring any presents....cause everybody was so creative...with their gifts....check some of the goodies we got....these cute mason jars filled cookies and then some spoons with the chocolate on them...and dipped pretzels....plus I wanted to thank Erin and her family who gave me another really special gift too...thank you so much!!! more goodies!!!!
and then I was handed this gift bag on my way out by chris.....from Scrappy chic...and some other Secret santa customers????? hhmmmm.......so to you all who...gave this gift......who ever you all are....WOW!! thank you....I just kept pulling out gift card....after gift card....amazing!! and check out all the cute goodies....(great for the stockings)!!we also got a Scrappy Chic gift card.....which I held for about 5mins....till I spent it.....I couldn't resist picking up these new papers from K&Company.......
and also these new ones from junkitz!!! the colors are just awesome!! I can't wait to play with these.......soon I hope!!! they also got lots of new vinyl thickers....in...with the new fonts and colors.......

and then later some of us played cranium...which I would never..play but it was fun!!!
Today started out so good felt all in the christmas mood.........but within' an hour.......down hill.....I try not to think to much about the future....I just can't!! and this morning.....I tried to imagine christmas morning without Ed...having the girls come in and wake us up at 6am.......we stumble...out to the living room...and act surprised to see all the gifts from santa.....Ed would always ask the girls...." what did you get?" "what did santa bring"........and then he would be the one to open all the packages...put all the batteries in...., and then when it was all over...we would just look at each other like....shoooo...we did it again!! and then he would start cooking his famous bisquits and gravy!!! And for the last 21 christmas's i've spent them with him......and when I try to imagine...christmas without him....it just breaks my heart......So to all of you...enjoy your hubby, your kids your family......because if you would've told me that last christmas would've been our last together....I would've thought you were insane!!

My heart always breaks and my eyes sting just trying to imagine Doug not in my life. I just wish we never had to lose our loved ones. On a lighter note, I am so happy you had fun @ the scrapstore. Jeniece looks like she is one heckuva wondrous friend, as are all your other buddies!! Hope you and the girls are able to enjoy the holiday!

Glad to see you out having some fun with the staff a Scrappy Chic...and Jeniece is too funny..I've been missing you both. Sometime it's just hard to read about how much you miss Ed..but that is normal..and you have to share..and remind us that are lucky enough to tell our loved ones..before they are gone too! I miss my mom, everyday..and it will be 2 years in Jan 08...and I see how much my dad misses her too! Can't wait to scrap with ya next Friday! Sandi

Aw, man...you got me with that last statement...I don't even wanna think about that! It's still weird thinking about Christmas without my brother being around.

I look terrible in that photo...oh crap...I just am not photogenic in any way shape or form...mind getting a picture of Vanna White or something and pasting it over me, LOL!?
