Ok, so it's been a while!

Happy Christmas, Happy New Year and anything else I missed in my absence!!!

We had a fab Christmas. Mum and Dad came to stay for four nights, the boys got way too many presents.... although due to a massive clear out before hand the house isn't bursting at the seams like it was last year! Here are a couple of pics, of the boys with their stockings on Christmas Eve and Christmas morning, and the huge pile waiting for us downstairs.

Yes, Harry does look like an Inuit baby when he wakes up in the morning... his eyes do go back to normal after a couple of hours and a warm bottle of the white stuff!!!

Yes, it is a huge pile of presents but it was for 4 adults, 2 children and 2 dogs!!!Santa was good to me too. I got loads of pamper products which I have decided to save until after the baby is here. And Rob got me a Wii Ft which was a total surprise. For obvious reasons I haven't been on it yet, but I have watched others and it looks so much fun, I can't wait!

Have been busy on the scrapping front too, although quite a few of the LOs have been for Sarahscards DT so can't be shared just yet. Unfortunately the Rough Draft blog went t*ts up last week so there will be no more fab sketches from there to work with although I will still stalk the DT members blogs for inspiration. Sunday was probably my last Warrington crop for a while and I managed to get 2 LOs done. This one is quite simple but I didn't want to distract from the photo too much. The reason Rob loves the photo is because it is a rare occurrence capturing a Bear smile!!! He does smile a lot, just not when there is a camera about, so this one makes a refreshing change! The lovely shaped paper, the stripey paper and the alphas are all from Sarahscards.... how annoying is it though having to poke out all those eyelets!!!

This was one of those photos you had to get in a really awkward position to take... just glad it wasn't on a day when the window cleaner was round!! Bear had fallen asleep on the living room floor, as he does, and I had to get down and at his level to take the pic... not easy when you are the size of a MOOSE!!! The cloud paper and the striped paper are by Bella Boulevard and can be found at Sarahscards, as can the Thickers. All the other bits and pieces were from a Scarlet Lime kit. The LO is quite touchy feely as I scrunched the stripey circle so it stands up slightly from the backing card.Well today is the last day of my Bear being a 1 year old!!! Can you believe he will be 2 tomorrow.... I can't. The past couple of years has gone so quickly and my baby is getting to be a proper little boy :( I will be back with more pics tomorrow of him with his pressies... I am so excited as we have got him the sizzlin kitchen from ELC which he goes crazy over every time we go into Mothercare on the retail park near us. So tonight once they are in bed and fast asleep it's mission build kitchen and wrap kitchen and all the various bits and pieces we have got to go with it!!!

Well here's hoping the school is open tomorrow (burst pipe today which resulted in a houseful of kids). I want Bear to have the morning with his presents on his own, before he has to share them with the others.

Great LOs, colourful & fun - love the image of you contorting yourself to take a picture of a sleeping littlun. It also made me smile as I'd completely forgotton how I used to sleep on the floor just like that when I was a kid(& yes as a grown up when passed out on diamond white).

Hope the birthday plans go well this morning
