Cutie Birdie Card

Its finally Friday!!!  Which means running around trying to get everything ready to leave for Christmas break.  My hubby gets almost a whole month off for break, so we are traveling to the mid west and then down south to visit family.  I'm super excited to see family!  This is my favorite time of the year! 

I found this picture tonight and realized I never posted it!  Shame on me.  So here it is!  I cut out the birdie using the Create a Critter cartridge (my favorite).  There is a wonderful blog and person who has created stamp sets that go with the Critter cartridge and many others.  I put a few of her stamp sets on my Christmas wish list.  So I'm crossing my fingers that Santa will bring me at least one.  If you would like to visit her blog, just go to www.mypinkstamper.com.  She is super creative and full of energy. 


Have a fabulous day!  Happy crafting!

Thanksgiving Pics

I hope everyone is staying warm on this cold Thursday!  Our home was built "cheaply", so its not insulated very well.  I dread getting our electric bill this month.  Because we have a little one who always seems to have a cold (oh and by the way, she has an ear infection...again), we keep it warmer than we normally would.  I would love to know your suggestions on how you keep your home warm.  

I know Thanksgiving was a week ago, but I wanted to post a few pics we took that day.  I hope you enjoy them!

A lot of food for just two people.

"I'm ready.  Where's my food?"

Our enormous turkey pile. 

I'll post the recipe for this sweet potato casserole tomorrow.

I truly hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoyed their leftovers.  I know I did.
