Christmas Fun

Paul giving Scottie his Christmas present.
He played so hard with his toy he pulled a muscle in his neck but that didn't stop him from playing.
Max got a furry mouse to play with.
The other cats got toys too but they weren't in the mood to play or get their pictures taken.
Guitar hero for my sweetie.
Rocking out on the Guitar or trying too.

I got the best present ever, the most beautiful engagement ring ever made. It is incredible. Paul treats me better than I deserve.

I love you Paul and can't wait to marry you!!

New Quilt

My brother asked me to make him a quilt a few months ago. It took me forever to find the colors I wanted to use. The fabric square that is dark blue with gold, red and silver stars was my inspiration. I wanted the quilt to be masculine.

Here is the finished product. It's just a small size twin quilt.

A closer view

It took awhile but I think it's nice. My brother liked it alot.

Christmas Time

Merry Christmas!!!!!

Our first Christmas tree. I love glass ornaments and have been collecting them for several years. It was nice to see them all on the tree finally.
Someone is trying to sneak a peek at their stocking. The middle one is the fur children's stocking. Don't tell them but Santa is bringing them some very nice presents.

The front door wreath. We've added some star lights to it. The piano is decorated with my small pink tree that I have had for a million years.
Tomorrow we are going to my brothers house to do Christmas. I'm really feeling happy this holiday season it's so nice to enjoy the holidays with people you love. I've made 4 batches of fudge today and this afternoon we are making cookies. The majority of the presents are wrapped and I am just finishing up my brothers present (I'll post pics soon).
Have a Merry Christmas everyone and make some memories!

Busy week

It has been a busy week. Last week was insane with work and school, but thankfully it's slowing down. Today is the first weekend in months that I didn't have to work, go to school, talk to people, go shopping, bascially I am totally free to sit on this couch and do nothing!!!!!!! Of course our house needs attention and I have wedding things to finish up and wrap presents, but those are fun things! A storm is hitting us this weekend, it's already put down a nice covering of snow. I am so glad we don't have to leave the house this weekend.

Soooo, I got a wedding dress, I would love to tell you about it or show you a pic but since paul reads this blog, you all will just have to wait til june and be surprised like him. Of course if you can't wait email me and I'll send you a pic and tell you about it. We got the tuxes for the boys ordered, centerpieces figured out, appointments with the florist and pastor scheduled and last night picked the invitations. Next on the list to tackle is favors, bridesmaids dresses, wedding jewelry and rehersal dinner.

Enjoy the weekend all!

I'm dreaming of....

..............a nice, clear, dry roads, no ice, no snow christmas. Any of you that have known me for more than ummmmm 10 minutes, know that I HATE snow. I truly wouldn't mind if it never snowed again. Since this is my first winter in the big city and farther north than I grew up, I'm not sure what to expect winter wise, but it sure isn't looking great so far. On Wednesday we got about 6 inches of snow with about 2-3 of that being dumped during morning rush hour. And then today we have 2-4 more inches, looks like about 1 1/2 out there now, but it's ontop of the ice from the melted snow yesterday. Plus, my job is in healthcare so you have to report unless the county closes the roads, oh what fun. Yeah, I know I'm a big baby, but I don't care, be prepared for pouting and whining for the next 4 months.

Oh a good note, school is over, these last few weeks of classes just about did me in. AND more importantly, only 6 months til the wedding WOOOHOOOO. I will be going dress shopping next week.

Off to go clean off a snow covered car and crawl my way into the office.
