I was delighted when Michelle's Mom sent me pictures of little Michelle. And I thought I couldn't have loved her more. . . .
Both Greg and Michelle are the oldest of 2 siblings. Here are the pictures before I did my cutouts where you can see the darling little brother and little sister!
The bridal shower is this Sunday!

On Christmas Eve, we always go to the newspaper (where Bob works) and pick up the Christmas Day newspaper, which is printed early to allow the pressmen to go home. The picture of Bob and Greg is in the photo room where Bob shares some of his pages with Greg. After that, we took a ride to the downtown campus to see the lights on Woodburn Hall. I call this photo a "Blue and Gold Christmas".

This is the layout from 2009. We're getting to be old hand at putting these together. Most years we make 50 bags and kits. This year we made 40. I leave the fruit bags in the area of the serving area and kitchen where each employee begins their work day.
Wishing everyone a happy and healthy new year!

I called the layout "Know Your Place", borrowing the title from Sande Krieger's digital place card set.
"Know Your Place
1st Child to Laura & Steve
1st grandchild to Terry & Nelson
1st Great Grandchild to June & Jim
Thanksgiving at your Dad's Restaurant. . . you can sit anywhere you want!"

Chris' friend Steph made his sweater for the party they attended. They even donned hats. Glad to see the young folks in the holiday spirit. 2011

Cindy, the creator. Pages, menus, memories.
Terry, the teacher. Reading, writing, children.
Amy, the all American girl. Critters, family, career.
The charms also reflect a bit about us. The fork is attached to my initial because I am a dietitian. The sunflower to Terry, as she loves sunflowers. The dragonfly to Amy because she enjoys small critters and insects.
Back to my Christmas cards. Monday I ran out of ink, paper, stamps and more. After work on Tuesday, I drove 24 miles in town to stop 5 different places and stock up. Time to do a few more cards........

"So many 25ths of December, just as many fourth of Julys."
On a Saturday afternoon Bob asked me if I wanted to take a walk with him up the hill by our house. Here we're doing what we did many years ago "Acting like we only just met".
I wanted to use both side of the Teresa Collins Christmas Calendar paper. So I scanned the opposite side, then digitally cut out the blocks of the paper I needed (December 25 and Four). I added words to the blocks, a digital frame by Cottage Arts to my photo and a Rhonna Farrer brush for the title. Now when I listen to the Celine Dion Christmas CD when she sings this song, I'll think of us and this time.
