A Holly Jolly Tag - FMS


It is go time around here!  The tree is up, on line shopping is finished, packages are wrapped, and pies are in the freezer.  Please notice there is no mention of Christmas cards being finished or mailed....sigh...I won't even pledge to start earlier next year because it never happens!  So quick and easy tag cards work perfectly right now!  I am sending a few more cards than usual this year since our regular holiday gatherings will not be happening this year.....because of you know what....

In the meantime find yourself a nice furry four legged friend to hang out with!

Coming Home With The Tree! FMS464


Bringing home the Christmas tree never gets old - even though I do!  The Big Guy and I will head out this week to find just the right one.  In the meantime we had our annual Christmas photo shoot.  Luckily the photographer got some great shots but the not so great shots are the ones that make me smile the most.......


Yes they are fighting over the candy canes......

But he is very happy making a run for it on this sled with wheels!

Snow Much Fun


Being a total fan of snow AND Colorado meant that this sweet stamp set found its way to the Callahan house from the Colorado Craft Company.  Last year on this date we had 21 inches of the fluffy stuff - this year just rain today.  But there is not a doubt that the white stuff will arrive soon!

In the meantime the only sledding happening is inside.  Will is loving his new roller coaster!  Yes it is a Christmas gift but I couldn't wait until the 25th and had to open it up as soon as it arrived!   It is back in the box now and I will let him open it again next then the next until Christmas when he can take it home!  You can do those fun things when a little one is not quite 2!

The Paper Players have a Tic Tac Toe challenge this week - I went down the left side!
