Good Wednesday morning, my Christmas friends!

Nancy and I have spent the last three evenings till midnight trying to get a birthday present made for my mom. We're throwing her a secret 70th birthday bash (shhh!) with about 100 friends and family coming. It's a Smoky Mountain-themed party, since she and I love it so much. Nancy's mom is a retired caterer, and is designing and creating a mountain-shaped cake, Cake Boss style! It'll be a wonder if we can all keep the secret for two more weeks.

Anyway, besides the party, we've decided to do one of those hardback photobooks that Shutterfly makes. We've upload 200 pictures to Shutterfly of our trips to the mountains with her, and arranged them in the book. I have to say, it's a great present idea! You guys should check it out: http://www.shutterfly.com/photo-books

I have another birthday party to go to for my niece this evening. It should give me a chance to get some practical experience with my new camera!

I hope y'all have a great day!

So keep doing those little things with your kids, that is what they will remember when they grow up.
What a lovely thing to hear!!

Just shows what a wonderful Mom that you are =]

First of all , I have been thinking of all of you experiencing severe weather. Stay safe you guys.

It is still grey , damp and dull here but compared to what some of you are experiencing, I am not complaining!

Baby Isaac and I are going to try and tidy up the garden today.....which usually means I've got a toddler covered in leaves and dirt by the end of it LOL.

Ok , well have a good day everyone !!!!

Sounds like a fun day with Isaac!!

Thank you for all the hugs and good thoughts, my friends. Don't worry, it's not health-related or anything like that. I just got an unhappy surprise yesterday regarding a legal matter that threw me into a funk. I didn't sleep well after that, and I'm having a hard time shaking off the blues. But the good news is that the matter will soon be concluded, over, and done with for good. Time for me to put it away and look ahead to the long weekend and our upcoming vacation.

You're all the sweetest people I know after my Mr.
You're the best.

I should have consulted with you, too! Right now, I'm trying to find a small plastic log cabin to put on top. If I can't find one, I'll get Elizabeth to make one out of pretzel logs or something.
