I can hardly believe 4 years old today!! About this time 4 years ago they were just starting to induce my labor! The whole experience still seems a little surreal! What a joy our little Buggie has been. We love her so much and are so thankful for all her family and friends that shower her with such love and acceptance!! She is an AMAZING little girl and will tackle and overcome many challenges that get put before her!
The first couple photos are from this morning of her opening her gifts. Then we made cupcakes for her last night, she loves cupcakes so that is her Birthday Cake. And the photo of the card is what I made her for her Birthday card. I love how it turned out! OK, better run she is sleeping and I have to straighten up the house!!!

More Random stuff!

Hello all,
Still buried under snow here! I can not believe how much we have. We have not done to much as you can imagine! Did drag Larry down to town Saturday to get a few more things for the poor deprived child!!! I felt like she did not have enough toys to open!!! I bought mostly clothing for Allyson for Christmas, due to my terrible "Clothes Horse" problem. And since I can not buy what I really want to wear for myself I live this issue through my daughter!!! Here she is dressing herself completely, including sequined legging and shoes!! She is even starting to want to pose for the camera!!! Will not look at the camera, but says "Cheese" super cute!!

Here she and daddy are posing after giving each other "Tattoos" with her markers!I did the little tree in the Kitchen in Allyson's Hello Kitty Ornaments! It looks so adorable!!

That's all for now! Have a super good night, only 3 more days until the Holly Jolly Day!!! Hope everyone is ready! I have a few things to get done, but not sure if it will happen since I can't drive my car!!! But I am SOO not going to sweat it!!

Hello from Winter Wonderland!

Had to share a few random photo's this is an ornament that I made for my Bunco Group's Ornament Exchange. I love it so much! I am definately making one for myself! Larry was even impressed! It looks so much better in person, it is loaded with sparkle! that you can't really see in this photo.

This is a photo of the Dept. 56 Villiage set that my brother Justin got for me! It is SUPER cute! I of course had to rearrange all my houses to get this baby set up!! How fun is that! THANKS Justin, I just love it!
Snow on our roof!!!

I am in SNOW HEAVEN here! We have well over a foot of snow and it is still snowing at this hour. Allyson just had to go for a walk last night, she said "Walk Snowman" she thinks snow is called snowman!!! How funny is that. So we got all bundled up and played on the deck and then took a walk to the front door and then she was done! I got a great photo of the Christmas Tree and snow from outside the house.

Let it snow Let it snow Let it snow!!!

We woke up to a white wintery blanket of snow today! It is still snowing!! I AM SO EXCITED!! I hope you are getting snow Ms. Amanda! Allyson would not move away from the window! We had to take a trip out first thing this morning! Last year she wanted nothing to do with it!
Here are a few photos. We are trying to get the gang together for a SNOW PARTY tonight. So we will see if anyone can make it!

See you about 5 ish Beth and Steve!!

My Snowflake Tree!

So here it is! My FAVORITE decoration. This tree takes me so long to decorate! I put so many ornaments on this tree I lose count! I only could fit 800 lights this year. The limbs on the tree are a little weak, so it was a little challenging. I do love how it turned out!

In search of!

This past Sunday we headed out to get our Christmas Tree. The weather was not nice at all! We headed for the Schrock's Christmas Tree lot on Ocean Beach Hwy. I just love there trees. We got our tree from there last year and loved it. We basically got the first tree we saw last year and ended up with the second tree we saw this year! It is about 81/2 feet tall and just about perfect! I have it all decorated and love how it turned out, except I can not get my fake snow to stay on the branches. Usually I will throw snow that you use for villages on the tree and it will gather on the branches, but this year I didn't have much luck. OK, better run, I think that besides a few tweaks here and there I finally have my house all decorated for the season. It is going to stay up until the New Year, after all that work. We are suppose to get snow this week!! I hope they are right!!! Sounds like a snow party at the Timmons' household!

One down!

I just had to share my SANTA! Tree. So one down one to go! This is the fake tree. We got a tree on Sunday and had to let it dry out! I will be stringing the lights while Allyson is napping so I better get to it! Last year I had over a thousand lights of the Snowflake tree. Only 600 on the Santa tree.

The Big Pink Pirate Party!


I do believe the Pink Pirate Party was a success. Other than the fact that Allyson was on sensory overload! She LOVED her Pirate ship and wanted to spend the whole party in the boat! The kids loved to be inside the boat as well. We had a house full! It was great. Thanks to Tutu and the Johnson crew for setting your sails to the party! We are so blessed and thankful for all our friends and family. After the party wrapped up we headed to dinner with Steve, Beth and the kiddos. MEXICAN! Thanks guys! And Justin I have your jacket in a box ready to ship out to you tomorrow! Now if I could stay out of the leftover party food I would be happy, but who can resist a PIRATE SHIP cake!

I just LOVE this time of year, don't you! I am frantically trying to get Allyson's party together for this Saturday along with having one heck of a cold. Sore throat, and trying to lose my voice! I actually had to take a nap with Allyson today! I did manage to get a little scrapping in. I made a Cookie Sheet Christmas Countdown. I am not 100% crazy about it, but had a hard time finding things small enough for it. I had Larry sand blast our old cookie sheet, because I could not find anything that was non-stick. So Mara will be happy I recycled!

I am also tring to take at least a photo a day until Christmas, I purchased a kit online from Designers Digital by Ali Edwards called the 25 days of December. I plan on making a little photo book with the photos. I better run, I have to get my little Bug some dinner!

Long Time no post!

Not to much going on here, just getting ready for Allyson's B-Day party. I have a bad habit of over doing it and this year is not exception! I have some random photos posted below of what we have been upto lately. Have a good day!

This first photo is of my latest layout. Allyson has decided that all trees need a HUG! She is just such a silly little thing!
Here we are making cookies and Allyson getting to lick the spoon for the first time!

This photo is of the sunrise. How AMAZING is that !

And this is of Allyson getting her hands of the box of Nesquick Coco mix. Larry and I were deep in coversation and not paying attention, but I did notice that she kept saying MMMM! Well needless to say she was in Coco Heaven! You can see all the powder on the coloring book and little finger marks thru it, this is from her taking hand fulls and shoveling it into her mouth!

Complete Sillyness!

So we are a bit of the Simpson's fan in this household (I am sure that I shouldn't really admit that?!) But last year when the Simpson's Movie came out, they had this website that you could go to and "SIMPSONIZE" yourself. So OF COURSE I had to do it! And here is something else that I shouldn't admit, but The Simpson's Movie was Allyson's first movie at a movie theater. She LOVED it! She watched about 45 mintues of it and then fell asleep on Daddy's lap.
I really want to scrap these but need to find the perfect paper and such.

Larry (Looks alot like Jimmy don't you think)

What is sad about this is that it looks alot like me?!

AHH! How Cute is she!!


Just wanted to share a photo that is a repeat for most of you, but someone at work wanted to see the Kitchen set that Larry made for Allyson last year for Christmas. This year I have him assigned to making me a Birthday gift - New Wall Unit for my Scrapbooking Room!!! YEA FOR ME!! Can you believe that he did this from scratch, no drawing, just a photo from the Pottery Barn Cat. He is so darn talented.

Latest Project

I just had to share this cute little tree that I did. I got the idea from a magazine that Bethie turned me on to. Here is a link to her blog She is so talented!! I made all the little felt ornaments, it was so much fun!! I also have a photo of how I attached some of the ornaments to the tree. I found these in the curtain section at Walmart. I am now addicted to them and am brainstorming different ways I can use them!! Well I am off, Larry is having Football Thursday at the house today so going to go help him get ready!

Trick or Treat!

OK, so finally getting a quick moment to post! I got whatever Allyson got on Halloween, and have not been 100% and have not been around the computer much this week. So my photo's were not that fabulous this year, she was not a willing participant! and we only got to go to one house the neighbor. She looked very cute in her costume made by Grandma Tutu (thanks very much) She was Little Red Riding Hood this year. OK, got to run time to get ready for work, but today is my FRIDAY!!!

One Last Post!

OK, this should catch me up for now. I had to post photo's of the pumpkins that I carved. These are the fake pumpkins you can get at Micheal's (craft stores). Let's just say these are a labor of love. It was not easy to carve these babies! I had to super glue a few sections back together. I now understand why you see these get painted more that carved!!!

Last Friday's Fun!

So I am a posting fool today! Making up for lost time. Last Friday I took Allyson bowling for the first time and she of course just loved it! She loved to watch the ball return! She would throw the ball and then run back to the ball return and wait, saying OH NO! the whole time until it spit out the ball!
