Ringing in the New Year!

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas! It was busy around here, day and night. It feels great to be in tonight on New Year's Eve with my family, just hanging out. We have been going non-stop since the kids have been out of school and we are all worn out!

A few shares tonight before 2011 gets here...

Here is a card I made for one of my special friends who gets a handmade, one of a kind card, every year. She truly loves getting them and frames some to display at Christmastime.

The Christmas trees were traced and cut out from Paper-Source stencils and then I covered them with glitter. There is some Bazzill, Making Memories and October Afternoon too. :)

Then I made a couple little gift bags for neighbors that I put homemade goodies in. I used a Basic Grey embellie for the bag and then die cut a tag and stamped it with Papertrey Ink supplies. Tied on a ribbon with some berries and voile!

Then, on Christmas Eve, we had a very special visitor at my mom and dad's house...

Santa himself! The kids were so excited and couldn't believe their little eyes! It truly was magical...

Anna kisses Santa when he tells her his Elves put some extra "Go-Go Puppies" on the sleigh. A wonderfully priceless photo!

Elan getting cool with Santa... he was described tonight as a "Carnival." That about sums up his little personality! ;)

Mac was a little timid about seeing Santa... I think this might be his last year believing in the "Big Man Himself." He has asked a lot of questions this year, but being the sweet boy he is, he does it privately so none of the other kids hear. We have loads of cousins!

It was my niece, Claudia and my nephew, Graham's first Christmas. They were jolly little babies all day long!

Christmas morning was a delight, to say the least! Everyone got their Christmas wish...

Elan got a Polar Express train set. Finding it alone was a Christmas miracle!

Anna got her "Go-Go Puppy!"

Mac was so surprised that he got the Star Wars set he wanted! His expression says it all!

We made lots of new Christmas memories this year and hope to make more in the new year ahead. Happy New Year to you all!
