Well, it's another day closer to Christmas! I'm sure the kids will chew my ear off with a million questions about Santa and the North Pole again. Oh my gosh, it never stops! And it's so funny at the moment too. Normally, Jack and Emily fight constantly, about everything, but lately they've been getting along beautifully. Usually they fight when they sit on the couch, about who has the best seat, and god forbid if one of them "crosses the line". But yesterday, Jack sat on there to watch a dvd, and asked Em to sit with him. But that's not the amazing part....she sat down, and then he patted the spot right next to him, and said "sit here, closer to me" Um...I almost fell over with shock! But it doesn't end there...they've been getting drinks for each other, helping each other to tidy up their rooms, and get this...When we went for a walk on the beach, I was a bit ahead of them, because I was throwing the ball for Daisy, but when I looked back, they were walking along holding hands!!!!
I was thinking they must just have some good holiday spirit going on, but when I commented to Em on how nice it was to see her and Jack getting along so nicely, she let me in on what was going on...apparently Santa really keeps a watch out, to see which children are behaving, and those ones get the best (and most) presents, so they are trying for the best pressies in the world. LOL!! Figures...they are so cheeky! Well, let's see how long it lasts. I happen to know that Santa has got some pretty awesome presents in store for them already, but it would be nice to see them get along for the next few weeks. Especially seeing as school holidays started last Friday!
So I haven't scrapped as much as I would have liked, the last few days, but I have started sorting my scrap room (again), so hopefully that will make scrapping,(and finding things!) a bit easier. I just have to keep the kids out of there, as it seems to have become craft central in there for them lately! I do have a layout to share though, this one was in the last Scrapbooking Memories magazine...
I didn't even use anything Christmassy on this one, even though it's a layout of Em on Christmas morning! SO not like me!
Ok, so don't look too closely at these flowers. They were my very first (and only) attempt at the Tim Holtz flowers, lol...
And the papers I've used are Kaisercraft Devonshire. Aren't they gorgeous! It's one of my all time favourite Kaisercraft ranges.
Well, I suppose I should go, I've rambled on enough for one day! Hope you have a great one :)
