I am happy to say that I am finally almost feeling back to 100% today. Not quite there yet but at least I am able to function almost normally. Today I spent the day watching Christmas movies and wrapping presents. With 7 in my family it is quite the task. Plus, I do the 12 days of Christmas for my kids by giving them a wrapped present in their stocking up until Christmas morning. Then "Santa" hides their stockings on Christmas morning and they are allowed to find them and open the 12 gifts before everyone wakes up. We had the same tradition when I was growing up and I loved it! The only problem is that because of my bout with food poisoning, I am a couple days behind. :) I will be busy wrapping a ton of small gifts tonight! :)
I have a video for you all today! I hope you enjoy it. I actually filmed this the day before we went to Disneyland last week and just finished editing it today. It's one of my favorite newer projects that I've shown this month. We have so many awesome things coming up in the next month or so that I can hardly wait to share them with you!

So last night I thought that it would be fun to watch a Charlie Brown Christmas while eating popcorn and decorating our Christmas tree. What ended up happening was that me and my 9 year old basically decorated the entire tree and then I made my other children come by the tree and pose with an ornament "like" they were actually participating in our fun family tradition. (Just being honest here. hee hee!) Anyway, I know that years will pass by and as I look at my family scrapbook I will only remember them actually helping me. :) That's what scrapbooking is for, right!? LOL!
(Acting like he's helping)
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas! I'm not sure how much I will be blogging and crafting in the next week. It's all about family time around here once the kids are out of school on Friday. Plus, I have ANOTHER little boy with a birthday this weekend! I'm off to finish wrapping presents and then I have to make 60 goodie bags for class parties on Friday. PHEW! Good thing I'm feeling up to it and actually looking forward to it!
Big hugs to you all! I truly want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me something to look forward to everyday. I love being able to do what I do and it's you who makes it possible!
