A Christmas Parade and Lotsa Goodies

Hello Every One!!! Did ya'll miss me LOL!!!! Just kidding, but really, it seems like FOREVER since I've been able to blog a little and play a little. I usually start runnin the week before Thanksgiving and don't stop til Christmas afternoon!!! Then I crash ROTF!!!

Speaking of crash ya'll. I dropped the Turkey!!! Yes I did. It just slid down the bottom of the roaster, hit the edge, and swooosh, popped right outta that pot!! I was sooo scared to look down, I just KNEW it was smashed all to smithereens. But luckily, it wasn't done yet and held together. I just grabbed him up before any one noticed,washed him off and put him right back in that pot. Naturally, I did not tell ANYONE about our little escape from pot and the one son who did see has had his mothers "secrets of the kitchen" curse put upon his head should he ever tell!!!!

Actually, after all the turkey drama, the day ended very nicely. We went to the square to watch the lighting of the Courthouse and and then the lighted Christmas Parade. It's always sooo fun and funny. As the sun goes down, you hear the loud "POP" as they switch millions of little twinkle lights on. Then everybody "oooohs" and "aaaaahs" It's the same thing every year but I LOVE it LOL!!!
Here are some pictures of the floats. They were sooo pretty this year :-) And the weather was PERFECT!! A little breezy and a little cool. We had a great time!!!!
Well ya'll, sad news, bummer. Jen at Chaos Lounge is taking a break from creating for awhile. But with a little sad news, there's a little silver lining!! She'll still be around at her blog and plans to create again in the future YAY!!!!! I panicked there for a minute LOL!!! I'd miss chattin and playing with Jen and my Chaos Lounge goodies something AWFUL if they were gone forever!!!! In the mean time, she has put her entire store on sale 50% off until December 12 when she leaves for vacation.
I did this layout with Jen's newest kit "Reves de l'amour (Dreams of Love) " What a lovely lovely kit. The color pallet is just BEAUTIFUL!!!!
Here's a peek at more of the kit. You can snag it at Jens store at Digital Candy, on sale right now 50% off until December 12th.

Kim Broedelet has this AWESOME new Christmas kit out right now as well, "From Santa With Love". I had a blast playing with this. The doodles are so cute ya'll!!!! Perfect for my silly kid pics LOL. I just noticed Kim still has this kit on sale right now 35% off so go grab it quick. It's a fun fun kit to play with!!!!
Here's a layout with my little guy. I use to tease him that all he's getting for Christmas is his two front teeth and he's like NO WAY MOOOOOOM!!!! I want TOYS!!! I've been REAAAAAL GOOD!! Promise!!!! Forget those teeth ROTF!!!
Well ya'll, Scrappin Doodles had a huge sale last weekend and I went shoppin'. I've discovered I loooove Clip Art. It's so much fun to make little printable goodies and they're sooo cute LOL!!!

Ok, I'm off this thing to sit and look at my tree a little while and listen to the norther blow in before I go to bed. I loooooove just sitting watching the lights and hearing the wind blow. I'm a silly girl I know LOL. Well, actually, silly woman, but that's Ok, I still think of myself as a girl, and that's all that matters :-) Sweet Dreams you all and talk to you soon.
