Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. Well it's not quite over yet but I'm experiencing a bit of the post holiday blues. Hopefully it'll pass soon. I'll be back to post when I snap out of it and get back into the groove of things. In the meantime, Happy New Year!

The picture is from Kat's Christmas program at school last Friday. She did a great job! We were so proud of her. I know I have not posted any cards in a while, I can't help sharing pictures of Kat with all the holiday happenings recently. I have not had much time to stamp in a while. We just finished wrapping Santa's presents for Kat to open up tomorrow morning. We are doing the Santa Christmas early since we are leaving to go to Florida and Georgia on Tuesday after work for a week. Hopefully in the new year I will get to stamp a lot more and share them here. I am starting to run out of extra cards that I hold on hand. Off to bed.

A very quick post on this very foggy morning. Kat has been sick with strep throat. Several other kids at school have it too. She has been a good sport and is doing fine. We took her to see Santa the other night. It's the first time she did great with him! She loved it, just like any kid should. She told him she wanted a puppy. Her uncle is giving her a Lick n Love puppy (we are not ready for real pets yet!) I'm including two pictures. One is out of focus and I apologize, but the pose was really good. The other picture is in better focus. Today is her Christmas program at school. Hard to believe we are leaving for Florida and Georgia next Tuesday after work!
Ta ta for now.

Had a nice time in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg TN! We enjoyed spending time with our friends from NC. Katerina had a ball. Here are a couple pictures from our weekend. We were saddened to see that the Boyd Bear Country is closing down in Pigeon Forge. The one in Gettysburg PA is remaining open. Everything was on sale there so we got a few things.

I have some Christmas cards made, and some purchased. I haven't had the motivation to address them and send them out! This is considered *late* of me not to send out cards yet and it's still early December! :) I usually send right after Thanksgiving. We are going to do a newsletter this year and print a picture of the 3 of us (posted above) to include in our cards so that's the reason for the delay.

I want to try and stamp some white images over transparency sheets on cards. I've seen gorgeous cards using this technique!

It's been COLD!!!! Perfect for hot cocoa, coffee time! I need to get back to stamping and posting some of my cards here soon!

We're taking off for the Smoky Mountains this morning. We are attending a Deaf Awareness event at Dollywood on Sunday. Planning to meet some dear friends for the weekend and enjoy Pigeon Forge & Gatlinburg! It's going to be pretty cold, appropriate for this time of year! Have a great weekend, everyone. Be back here next week I hope!
