The Latest Christmas Tree EVER!!!

So I am sure that there are some families who decorate on Christmas Eve, but this is the absolute latest I have ever put at tree up! Whatever- it is done, and although a little lopsided, the tree looks great! It is really big- standing at about 9 feet- but it fills our now empty living room quite nicely! It almost makes me happy we don't have any furniture in the room...almost! lol! Oh well next year! I took some shots of our fireplace mantle too- it is much nicer in real life- couldn't get a good shot today! I have to thank my Mom, my Aunt Pam and my Uncle Ted ( for the awesome baby sitting!) for helping me with the decorating! Also thanks to the DH for chopping the end off the tree and helping me set it up! Sadly it has to be out at the curb on Jan 5th so we don't get to enjoy it for long! Here are some pics! ENJOY!

Only how many days!!!!

Hello all! Sorry for my very poor posting of late! I was very fortunate to get work for the past 3 weeks! The office I have been working at is wonderful and it was great to get back into the swing of things again! My temp stint there is now over (sigh) so I have some time to get caught up on all of the thing I had planned to to the past 3 weeks! In other words AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!
Oh well, I have all of my shopping and wrapping done, have purchased enough food to feed a small battalion and now it is just down to the last of the list! I finally purchased a Christmas Tree on Friday night, and after a day in the garage, it is standing ( very) tall and ready in the living room. It is a very good thing we have vaulted ceilings and no furniture in the room because the tree is HUGE!!!!! I can't wait to decorate it!
I have had a real drought of scrap related stuff, but I am hoping to get some time over the next little while!
Before I go, I wanted to link up a chance for everyone to win a little blog candy! The team over at shortcuts is offering up some yummy treats- go check it out!!!
Have a good one all! I will post a pic of the monster tree once we get a chance to decorate!

Yes, I am still alive....

I just feel really rotten! I have had a cold for like 2 weeks, managed to get my Mom and my 93 Yr old Grandmother sick and it is still going on!!!! I haven't done any scrapping in a dogs age and my mojo is MIA! I am going to tidy up my scrap space and try to find some inspiration!
Have a good day all!g
