meme with a difference

I’ve signed up via Martha’s blog and must reciprocate before I forget.

The first five people to respond to this post (via the comments section) will get some form of art made by me.

The only catch, is that if you sign up, you have to put this in your own blog as well.

I can’t believe that our Christmas holiday is almost over

The week has flown by. My son has so enjoyed the time with his grandparents. He is so happy to see them each morning. I know I’m not the only one who is going to miss them.

We are going to be exhausted when we get home. We have not maintained a schedule (nor factored in the time change) at all. Uh oh indeed.

We finally made it to Candy Cane Lane and saw it via horse drawn carriage. I couldn’t resist my son’s excited and hopeful face. He thought the church next to us was a barn that housed all the other animals from the farm. lol. He wanted to actually ride the horse but that changed once he got closer to them. They were huge horses. It was over far to soon and he wanted to go again which resulted in a tearful ride home. I hoped to get photos, however, my camera skills are not what they could be.

Lots of blurry shots. (secretly I like some these odd & blurry shots)

Peace and goodwill to all

Merry Christmas!

Hope you are having a great time with your family and friends.

My three nephews and son are having a great time. All four are excited blurs at any given moment. lol. Luckily they stopped for a moment and I got a wonderful picture of them together. They are going to miss each other when we leave to go back to Edmonton tomorrow.

I called Daddy and Uncle at home and they are having a seafood feast for Christmas dinner. I can tell that they are missing the little guy. We will have another little ‘mini’ Christmas with them when we get back home.

We are going to my sister-in-law’s parents house for dinner today. I’m looking forward to that. Her parents and family are very sweet.

Remember the calories don’t count today…

Forget snakes on a plane…

how about a screaming toddler for the duration of the flight? Combined with a set of parents that think this behavior is oh so a*d*o*r*a*b*l*e.

We are here and having a great time with our family. My son has been a trooper about all the new places and faces.

I can’t wait until Christmas morning!

ATC Challenge – Twelve drummers drumming

ATC question

A friend called me at work to ask “what is an ATC?” I thought I’d defer to an authoritative source for that query.

I really enjoy working on ATCs. They are accessible for me. Meaning that they can be done fairly quickly and much less intimidating than a 12 x 12 layout or an entire album (shudder!).
