Finally a day off. Now I can rest and get something done before I go back to work on Saturday. I love going to my moms but I sometimes don't feel rested when we get back because I usually end up going to work as soon as we get here. I know the drive is only 3 hrs to and 3 hrs from my moms but lately the driving makes me super tired. I noticed it took some wear and tear on my brother too.
So, I'm looking forward to a day of doing nothing. LOL. Thinking about going to go see a movie.
Well, here's your name for today. Talk to you all later. I'm gonna go snuggle up with my puppies in my bed. They are such snuggle bunnies.
Hey everyone, I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas. We went to my moms and all got together. It was fun. Our christmas dinner consisted of a chicken sandwich one day and deer burgers the next (which were really good!) and that was just fine as far as I was concerned. After nearly burning my turkey at Thanksgiving I wasn't really wanting a huge dinner anyway.........LOL.
The most important thing was that I got to spend time with my two brothers David and Jr and my dad. We spent probably 6 hrs playing scrabble and had a blast. I haven't laughed like that for a while. It was really nice.
I did miss my Jo though. Missed his laughter and generosity. He sure loved Christmas time. And he would have loved playing with me, my dad and my brothers. It would have been great and I'm not sure how but funnier.
Anyway, I have a word frame for you. I am planning on giving one of these out to you a day at a time. That's the plan anyway. It's easier to get one done then to try and do all at the same time. So let's see if this works.

Sorry I've been MIA for the last couple of days. I tore up my computer room and just now got my computer all hooked back up and running. I'm rearranging to hopefully make things easier and more spacious for me and my brother.
So, I'll be back tomorrow with a freebie. I have to go to work at 7am in the morning till 3, so it'll be after that. Wanted to get something for you tonight but it's too late now. Gotta go to sleep. It's gonna be a long day tomorrow.
Looking forward to watching season 2 of Dexter. I'm addicted to it. Me and my brother both are. Call me morbid but it's a great show and I've only seen season 1. It's funny because I like the Glades too on A&E channel. We think it would be great if they did a cameo of Dexter and Jim Longworth passing each other and each one giving the other their looks. That would be great. They are both shot in Miami Florida. You would think they would collide at sometime. Of course, Dexter is in it's 5th season now and the Glades just started last summer. Maybe they are thinking about it.
Anyway, gotta go now and get some sleep. Take care all.
I originally made this page for the challenge and then realized I didn't read my instructions right. The challenge called for the car to be extracted. LOL. I keep doing that. Making my pages before I get all the facts. OH well now I have 2 of them.
Made this page for a challenge on Scrapbook flair.
I made another page of my dear Jose. I don't have any pics from this year not only because it's a sad time for me right now but also because I tried hard to make it good but ended up nearly burning my Thanksgiving dinner. Yes, I say nearly but I think that "God" interveined somehow. Because it should have been burnt to a crisp.
I had stayed up late the night before but decided to lay down anyway and set my clock for 4am. It went off and I got the turkey in the oven by 5:15am. Good to go, right? Well, I then reset my clock for 7am. I got up then and basted the Turkey - the temp was at almost 160 degrees. Was looking great. So I decided to put my stuffing in the oven too and then set my alarm for about 9:30am to take everything out. Fail safe plan right.
Well, my alarm either never went off or I just didn't hear it. Been working for like forever at work trying to get the store ready for Thanksgiving and I was pretty tired. (I work at a grocery store in the bakery 40hrs a week) Can you guess what time I got up? It was at 1PM!
I was so angry with myselt. Even cried some because I ruined dinner for not just me (which wouldn't have been a bad thing for me) but I ruined it for my brother. He was in our craft room working and heard me say a few things I can't mention. He later came in to see what was wrong.
I told him I ruined Thanksgiving for him. I felt bad because he had stayed here with me for Thanksgiving instead of going to our families house 3hrs away because he didn't want to leave me by myself. What a great brother. Anyway, he said it couldn't be that bad. (My turkey was in there for 8hrs and the stuffing 6hrs). I asked him why he didn't wake me and he said he thought I had it all under control. Then I noticed there was no burnt smell or anything. (Remember I had just got a new oven) So he took it out and we checked it. The wings were pretty much toast but almost all the breast meat and all the dark meat were fine. The dark me was really juicy! My stuffing wasn't even burnt exept a little bit around the edged touching the foil. So it was all fine. We had a great meal. We cooked mashed potatoes and brocolli with cauliflour. Awesome.
I know God must have been there that day but now that I think of it.
Maybe my Jose was there watching out for me a little bit too.
Or maybe I have a really great oven.
I'll take all three please!
So here's a layout from 2006 on Thanksgiving the first year we had Shaylee. She even got her own plate.
I hope this works. My brother shared this with me on facebook. This guy is amazing with this instrument. It's made from PVC Pipe................

And there are more leaf dollies, leaves, leaf wreaths, a pincone and some other things I couldn't get all on there. There's 4 pilgrim girls. But I got most of it on there.
