Happy {scrappy} New Year!

Just a real quick post to say I haven't fallen off the side of the earth and things are good at my house. I am finally feeling on top of things again... getting bigger by the minute though... I PROMISE belly pics next post! ;) We had a lovely Christmas with my BIL (DH's brother) and family. I played the preggers bit for all it was worth and did very little all day with my feet up watching the kids play... it was bliss! ;) Hey, I figure this is going to be the last chance I get so I may as well use it! LOL New Year's was a very quiet affair... in fact I think we were all in bed by 10pm... which is actually unusual for us... most nights we have been up (kids included) until way past our bed times! The kids had fun with the hose on the trampoline... sacrilegious playing with water like that I suppose but it was only for a few minutes. These are the posed "smiles" I am getting every time I point a camera at my kids at the moment... I will have to learn to be sneakier me thinks! We went up to visit my lot in Walkaway for a few days last week... the kids always have a ball playing and keep themselves well entertained. It is great to catch up with all the fam, the collection of in-laws we are acquiring along the way, nephews and nieces... and GREAT nephews and I also got to meet my cousin Kate and spend time over lunch with my Gran (who is 94). I have not had much of a chance to get any scrapping done so nothing to show on that front I'm afraid. I am looking forward to getting back into it all very soon. DH goes back to work Monday BUT then I have my father staying with me for a couple of days while he has some health checks with the specialist... I will have to run him back and forth from the hospital... sooooooooooooooo... AFTER THAT I am DEFINITELY getting my scrap desk sorted and into action! Hope you are all enjoying 2009... a happy and safe one to you.

Loved your stuff in Embellished comp and then you seemed to disappear - wow what a gret size for a family you will have - I find having a 22 onth old and 3 month old a challenge at times but that's because they are difficoult sleepers but love them to bits - your work is inspiring - what photoshop program do you use?
