Back into the swing of things

Holidays always derail my creative endeavors just a bit. This year was especially crazy with the addition of swim team for Matthew (INSANE schedule!) and a nagging cold/allergies/not feeling so great for me since about mid October. Needless to say, I am waaaay behind on my 365 of 365, but I will attempt some catch up in the next few weeks.

Love these pictures of Max. His face was priceless when he got that first scoop of pumpkin guts. I loved these so much, I scrapped them twice (see below!)

I just adore this Studio Calico paper and it was perfect for a layout about Mason and I being together every day, 24-7. The mini chipboard houses from Maya Road are so fun!

An older picture - we don't have this kind of cold or the snow here. Makes me miss the crisp, cold (but sunny!) days in Minnesota. Here, we just get gray, gray, gray...

The other page with pumpkin goop. Wish I had done some misting on this page, but I thought of it too late.

I probably should have skipped the misting on this page because I had already put the snowflake chipboard down. I tried to mask it, but it didn't turn out so well. LOVE the picture of McKelle, though. She is growing up into a most beautiful young lady!

Max is such a goofball. I took about 30 pictures of him with our Christmas tree in the background and this was the best of the bunch. Mmmm, love that gold Maya Mist!

All the layouts I do about Matthew lately make me a bit weepy. I can't believe he will be a senior next year. And he keeps saying stuff like this to me! He's grown so tall (and holy cow, has swimming ever packed the muscles on my previously scrawny kid!) and loves to make sure I know he is much taller than me.

I haven't shown this one to Mitchell yet. His ears are just a wee bit pointy and the Santa hat certainly made it more noticeable. Wish I could steal those eyelashes for myself!

(Yes, one is missing. I have a Micah picture sitting on my table, but didn't quite get to it yet. His Christmas tree picture was even more goofy than Max's.)
