Whenever we go out, Natalie likes to go to PetSmart or Petco. It is the closest we get to the zoo this time of year. We walked by this tarantula and he was so creepy, I wanted her to take a picture next to it...this was the closest she would get. :)

It is almost like he posed for me, ya? He would move after the flash went off, hope I didn't blind the spider. Gross he is really gross and furry!

Natalie got her Diego stuff, "It's what I've always wanted!"

She had to put this dress up fairy dress on last night, too cute! She is just now starting to dress up and like girly stuffs.

Oh how she loves McQueen! "It's what I've always wanted!"

Merry Christmas Everyone!
This has been a great year, and I know 2007 will be even better!

Chuck E. Cheese Xmas

Today we met Jo Ann and Alan for our annual Xmas exchange at Chuck E. Cheese. It was good that we got there early because people sure piled in about an hour after we got there. Natalie and Alan had a great time, I have more pics, if you want to see, check them out. They sure enjoyed hanging out and opening presents. Natalie got home and tore into her Ariel bath doll and gave her about 6 baths. She loves it! Thanks Alan! Alan loved his motorcycle dude and safari remote car too. I hope he has fun with those. I know the kids get so much stuff, but it was time to clear out all of Natalie's younger toys and bring in the new ones.

Ok, I am totally excited about this. I received my December kit from sei and it was 2007 calendar to just add photos and embellishements and you are done. Mine came out great. It only took about an hour or so to print out he pics and put them on the page. In the back of the calendar there are tons of tags and stickers. I guess I'll take it to work, I don't have room for a double long calendar in my studio.
Everyone have a happy and safe holiday. It is going to be great this year now that Natalie totally gets it!

WeeCare Xmas Party and an {Oopsie Daisy}

Well, what I busy day I had, then to come home and bake cupcakes, woweee! Aren't they cute? The best part was that I took the frosting and put it into a plastic bag and piped it on each cupcake. This was sure easier than frosting each one, prob because when I frost each one has to be perfect, so it takes a while.

Oh also, Natalie bopped her sad...she will have 2 black eyes tomorrow for sure, we'll take more pics to share. Can you see how the light reflects on that BIG OL BUMP on her head?

Feeling Groovy!

Wow, what a rush feeling good is. Job is good, family is good, I am good, so that makes me feel balanced and happy. When I get home at night I am energized to hang out with family and do what Natalie wants me to do.
"look at the presents"
Every night about 3 times, she just wants to sit in front of the tree and talk about who the presents are for.
Oh gotta post a pic of my tree, the biggest yet, 9ft tall. The cats love it too :)~ Tony is replacing bulbs like crazy so he is good for that sorta maintenance.

Hey, I am taking a Donna class (Portfolio Album) and an Ali class (Perspective) at Youngplay Memories in Tracy in Jan and Feb. Totally excited about this, join me if you can, she can hold 100 people in each class. Still not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing. Good for her $, but then we get a less personal experience with Donna/Ali. I am going to bring my books to get an autograph and a camera to get photos with these ladies, LOVE EM!

Top 10 Things I Love

Ok, I just love SEI. They are the coolest company ever with the greatest designs!! I joined Club SEI and now get kits every month in the mail. You can preview the next month's kit and opt out if you don't like it. So that helps.The Dec kit is a calendar kit, I am all over that.
So, today I was able to sit down and fill one of the albums with photos. I think this was the October kit. Cute eh?
