The girls got invited to a friends birthday party. He will be 2 but they love hanging out with him so we got a gift and then I went to pick out a card and was blown away by the prices on kids birthday cards. Seriously who spends anywhere from $5.00 to $6.00 for one birthday card. I can buy a whole pack of blank cards for $5.00. So I decided I would make his card instead of dropping a fortune paying for one.

So it's been a long time and I have had people to add since before we left Texas but aside from printing up some more pictures I got the pages made up for the girls Friends books. I now need to hunt down more pages the next time I am out at A. C. Moore because I had to take pages out of Zee's book to add to Kyrie's book. I need to put them in order because they are just in there however I thought of who needed to be next. But it felt nice to sit and scrap even if it was only small 8 X 8 pages. This is the most I have done in awhile and with ripping cd's into I-Tunes to put on Kyrie's new I-Pod she is getting for her birthday I had a lot of sitting in front of the computer time on my hands. So I pulled them out and got to it. I also took down all my albums and sorted through them to see where I stopped on which ones and what all I have to add, and I found some empty ones. I know empty ones it is like Christmas every time I find an empty one around the house. I still can't find some pictures I am looking for which started the album searching to begin with but I found an empty photo album and a bunch of pictures that have already been scrapped that I can put away so I have more room for when I have to order the pictures I need to be caught up to this year.

So I was crafty when I could be the end of the year. I got some invitations made for Church for a Pumpkin Party in October. I brought in some Pumpkin cakes for the girls classrooms and I made up some cupcakes for special trick or treaters.
I drew up trees and cut out leaves for the girls to have Thankful trees. It went over great and we will be repeating it next year.
I made a snowman out of bottle caps and painted a ton of caps for the craft afternoon at school.
And I made Christmas cards 20 a month from January through November. It kept me busy and I decided this year to take a different option but I did it.
