I Quit

I have had enough of the holidays and I am quitting early. I am skipping the whole New Years Eve and Day thing. I am tired and I've had enough. My Christmas celebrations started on December 21 when Katie and her family arrived and ended today when Krista left. It was magical and exhausting! We laughed and cried, hugged and kissed, played and worked, cooked and cleaned....we were loud and happy and together and it was crazy and now it is time to rest. I took about 600 pictures and maybe 50 are good enough to scrap, but the rest will tell the whole story of Christmas 2009. I am just happy that everyone had a good time and we all got along.... Actually we stole our Christmas theme from Brandi, who quoted Sponge Bob, who said "Don't b a jerk, it's Christmas". At times we needed this focus.

I did a couple of random LO's while waiting for everyone to arrive before Christmas. They are both of my nieces Emily and Meredith. One is from the Halloween (I used the October Mega Kit from MLAS) and the other is from summer of 2004 (I used First Dip of Summer by Samceline) .

And now I'm off to organize and scrap some of my Christmas pictures, clean my house and watch some tv...all while staying in my pj's.

Here's a freebie for you from MLAS. You should definitely stop by the shop to check out the new designers and sales. I hear there are some Thrifty Thursday Sales and lots of freebies and some really beautiful Christmas kits.
