As promised...I'm BAA-AAACK!

As promised, I am back!
Things have been extremely busy around here and it just seems like the longer you go without blogging, the easier it is to postpone it for another day.
But 2010 is upon us and I want to start it right!
I didn't want to post photos of my December Daily until the outside was finished but I'll show you anyway :)
I used a Prima canvas album and glimmer misted with Peppermint Stick & then Marshmallow on top of that. I plan on putting some green ribbon over the album's edges and possibly stitching "December 2009" on the front...
Here's a peek at some of the inside pages:

I got a lot of my embellishments off of

We have been doing lots of holiday baking
I made over 10 dozen Italian cookies with the help of my 2 sous chefs:
(Notice Miss Mia's new haircut? She got a cute little bob!)

Yum Yum!

Here the kids are on Christmas Eve, so excited for Santa to come!
We tracked Santa all night thanks to the
NORAD Santa Tracker
It was utter madness once Santa reached the USA, the kids went bonkers!!

And then the magic of Christmas morning
Koby was so thrilled to get the Guinness World Book of Records!
(he didn't get his 2 front teeth though)

Mia with her Littlest Pet Shop animal
And Roman rocking out!
Santa brought Rock Band!!
We had a White Christmas
Here's the proof!!
We still have several inches of snow on the ground, with a forecast of more to come!
I haven't taken the kids out to play in it yet but hope to soon
I'm sorry I was away for so long and have missed all of my friends
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday with your loved ones
Can you believe 2009 is coming to a close?
It was a tough year for many and I am looking forward to 2010
I am thankful for my health and for the good health of my children and husband
Have a happy and safe New Year's Eve!!
