Christmas underway!


So, the parties have started. Last weekend was the first one - the IKEA party. Man, I never knew a Christmas party could make you feel old, but there wasn't a person at our table that was over 25. Everybody in Chris' department are between 19-25. Makes you feel like an old woman, let me tell you.

My gf kindly offered to babysit our children for the evening so that we could enjoy ourselves. Not a great photo, but it gives you the idea of how we looked that night. All in all, it was a pretty fun evening - even though we didn't win the big screen tv, satellite radio or any other fabulous prizes they were giving away.

Kiana is really excited today. We are going to the premiere showing of "Charlotte's Web" It doesn't come out in theatres until the 15th, but our landlord got these great tickets and thought we might enjoy it. I loved the book when I was a kid so I think we'll really enjoy it.

Malachi got me started on a new project for him. He is really interested in this new project I am undertaking and had this great idea for a new mini-book for him. Only its turning out not to be so mini. These are some of the photos that I have been taking for the last couple of days:
















He decided that it would be a good idea to recreate all 6 of the "Star Wars" movies with his lego. So, I have taken about 50 pictures of them. Now we are in the process of writing the story. Once that is finished, he decided that I am going to create a mini book for him of the pictures and the story together. He is so excited you wouldn't believe it. Its quite a project, but he's so excited that I just get swept into it with him. The photos are in the wrong order, but you can tell who lost the battle based on the photos above.

But the most exciting thing was the kit pieces that we got from our wholesalers on Friday! YUMMMY!!! Scrapbook stuff is always yummy, but when you get it in the quantity that we did, you just want to swim in it. Its really real now! Here's a sneak peak and just one of the yummy things we received in our box of goodies! Can't wait to show and share more!
