Good Monday Morning you realize there are only 4 more days until Christmas!!!.

I just can’t seem to get into the Christmas spirit this year.  I keep thinking of my friend Betty and how much she loved the heart just breaks for her son and her mother who have to  make it thru the holidays without her.  The first year is always so hard..Please say a little prayer for them.  My mother and sister are sick with colds and congestion so say a prayer for them too.

I went to a Christmas reunion of my mothers brothers and sisters on Saturday night.  We had a lot of fun and it was great seeing my cousins I haven’t seen in awhile and seeing their children and grand children.  I have pictures to show you but just haven’t gotten them off the camera yet..I’ll show them to you another day.

Angie and her family were here for the weekend. It was great having them here..I got to spend some good quality time with my GS Gage..I couldn’t sleep so I got up and of course headed for the computer. I was playing Bejeweled and he came in..he watched and helped me for awhile, then we looked at short haircuts for me, picked out some we liked and made copies…and then we looked at pictures I had on the computer..we had a lot of laughs at some of them.. we got tired again and went to bed, he  got in bed with me and we snuggled up and in about 2 seconds he was asleep and I was right behind him. I thought we were being quiet but Angie told us the next morning we woke her and Dave up!

As promised, I want to introduce to another of my fellow designers at DSO. Meet Andrea.

I am sure most of you know Andrea. In addition to being a great designer, she is a SAHM of 4 children, there is always something going on in this family and she is kind enough to share great pictures and stories with us.  She always comments on our posts in the Designers Club email..and is so sweet. Andrea lives in Arizona and is a BIG Twilight Fan. Be sure and visit Andrea’s Blog for neat stories and insight, fun and freebies.

Here is a preview of some of what you can find in Andrea’s store at DSO
