Ahhhhhhh ...

Wow, it's nice to relax. Christmas was wonderful. We had a really nice time with our family and of course ate too much. All the hustle and bustle is over with for another year.

Now it's time to look forward to spring. Our weather has really changed this past week and it's been really mild. The snow is almost all gone. Yesterday it was so windy out all over Ontario and there were power outages everywhere. Today it is sunny which changes my whole outlook on life ... lol.

Wow, it's Dec 22nd and I still have shopping to do. Shame on ME!!! Every year I swear I am going to get it done early and it never seems to happen. Next year for sure because I would love to know what it's like to sit back the week before Christmas and just enjoy it.

I bought this Santa Claus last year and I have it in my entranceway. It is motion activated so when you walk by it says one of three sayings. My husband turns it off once in awhile because it drives him nuts

Officially Winter

Today is officially the first day of winter and I feel like winter should be over already ... lol. We had another big snow storm the other day and it is COLD~!. December has just flown by and wow, it's almost 2009. It seems it was only a few years ago we were talking about the millenium and how weird it was going to be to say and write the year 2000. I finally have some Christmas spirit and Christmas is almost over Oh, life is funny.

Today I've got another Christmas freebie;

Time to Shine !

Hmmm ... maybe we are not going to have a white Christmas after all. It's 9 degrees celsius out and all the snow we had is melting.

Todays freebie is something I made a long time ago for my own wedding scrapbook. Well, over a year ago Yes, us old farts have only been married for a one and a half years. We've been together for almost 11 years and engaged for 9 of those years ... lol. For those 9 years my husband drove 200 km's back and forth because we lived in different cities. And I don't drive~! Then finally a few years ago I decided I better take the leap and give the guy a break. Wow, good timing with the price of gas the way it was ...LOL.

Anyways here is part 8 of the Wedding Wishes Series;

White Christmas

Well, it definately looks like we are going to have a white Christmas. It's been pretty darn cold and the snow isn't going anywhere soon~! It's not even officially winter yet, not until Dec. 21st.

Todays freebie is in two different versions. I did the frame with the 2008 and then decided to do it without.

So here they are: (There are two different passwords)

Brrrr ....

Wow, it was C-C-COLD out last night. With the wind chill it went down to minus 32 Celsius. Even today it's -14. That is way too cold for my liking. But we did go out and get a Christmas tree the other night. I couldn't decide on whether to get an artificial one (my cat broke every branch on my last artificial one~!) or a real one and we opted for a real one again. The cats don't seem to bother with the real ones. Not a huge tree, about a 6 foot tall spruce but it's a pretty one. I normally like all white lights but I thought I would use multi-coloured this year.

The time is just flying by and I haven't bought one gift yet!! Yes, I did go shopping but with no luck. So I'm going to have to really concentrate on that part this week.

Ok, I'm trying ...

I really am trying to get into the Christmas spirit. I put out my decorations the other day around the house, hung two wreaths outside and put lights up. I even looked for good Christmas cookie recipes and personalized my cat's stockings

I've had eggnog, been shopping, did my Christmas cards, listened to Christmas carols and there is snow outside - so why isn't it working? lol
I think it's just too early for me.

AND ... on top of all that I made some Christmas elements. So here is todays freebie;

Thanks Juno~!

Thank you to Juno for pointing out to me that I had spelled 'widely' wrong in a Wedding Wishes 6 element. It has now been fixed and the new one can be downloaded with the same link below.

Darn, I must have read that thing a few dozen times (as did other people) because I had made that awhile back for my own wedding scrapbook! LOL Oh well, I hadn't noticed it before. Oh,who am I kidding? I know I'll print that whole 12x12 page

I will leave the links up longer then usual because of this error. Thanks again Juno.

We were supposed to get a huge snow storm last night, around 25 centimeters of more snow but it just didn't happen. I guess it didn't quite get cold enough and it came down as rain (almost wet snow - snow wannabe) so it didn't accumualate. We still have snow from last week but even that is melting because of the above freezing temperature. I'll take a bit of snow so we can have a white Christmas but then it can go away~!

Wow, December 1st~! I'm going to force myself to put out my Christmas decorations today to see if I can get some Christmas spirit. Then tonight maybe some egg nog to really put me in the mood!!!
