Christmas

Well another Christmas come and gone. This year I felt it went quicker than others. When I woke up Christmas morning, I had to remind myself what day it was. There just seemed to be some magic missing. Perhaps I allowed myself to get really caught up in the commercialism which is quite unlike me. I feel that I've struggled to teach my children, especially Nico, "the true meaning of Christmas". Maybe it's because this was the first year it was all about the presents for him and that Mom guilt just crept right on in. We are dealing with some major family issues right now as well. I just want to spend the next few days enjoying my family and taking it easy. Hope to get out to see Zoo Lights at the Calgary Zoo and get some sledding in with Nico.

Tags A Plenty, Tags Galore




It's official. I love making tags and love all the pretty ribbon I can tie to my tags. Nico just loves squeezing the crimper and I love to organize and tag baskets, scrapbooks, drawers, whatever the case may be.

Dazed and Confused

It's December 1st and the overwhelming holiday rush has set in. I feel way behind and the month has just begun. Need to:
*get Christmas photo cards done and mailed out
*put up tree and decorate
*bake cookies with Nico
*finish shopping (almost done, thank goodness)
*wrap gifts
Ahhh, the holidays!
