In the mean time, here is a delicious cupcake card made from Re- Make. It has real candies on it. You know, those kind you see on the slick paper and you bite them off? I thought they would make fun sprinkles. The tag JOY came from the packaging. Re -Make is a K and Company line that has images on the packaging so you can reuse the packaging, make less waste, and preserve your memories to help preserve the earth. I think it is such a cool concept.
Oh, yes-the drawing was today and you know I am working on giving for 29 days. Yesterday, I gave a favorite book to a friend to read. Today, I thought it would be fun to have 2 winners instead of one, so my kids helped me draw 2 names. SHIRLEY and VICKI F. http://texasscrapaddict.blogspot.com/ are both receiving copies of Artful Blogging and the heart tassel. Congrats and thank you everyone for playing along. Your posts mean a lot to me. When I first started this blog, I really thought no one would be interested in reading it....so again-THANK YOU! Kara

Sometimes, I feel so busy- like I am running a great race. It is unfortunate, but I get nowhere in my race. I am just running in circles. Today was the perfect example. I ran from 7 am (Miss H had before school choir practice) until 7:00 pm (Miss H had swim team practice and I needed 2 additional lights from Lowe's for my track lighting). I accomplished many little tasks-Wal-Mart returns, beauty shop, emails, Windex the french doors and table by front door, dishwasher...but my list is still long. I have things I must do tonight, so I feel like I won the race. Blogging is on my list....with out further ado....

Today was a chocolate and Diet Coke day. My 2-day headache arrived with my picnic, as my dear friend, Melanie http://melaniecdesigns.blogspot.com/ would say. Nothing makes my headache go away. I wake up with it and I sleep with it for 2 long days. So, I nurse myself back to health with my delicious Diet Coke and my chocolate. As you can tell, diet is only in my soda and was not part of my New Year's resolution. This year I didn't make a resolution and then, I happen upon a blog with the 29 days sign on it. I clicked on the link http://givingchallenge.ning.com/ and was so inspired that I joined it. Day 29-my gift was simple and odd. I made it so that someone that was on the entrance ramp on the highway could get on it. I moved over. It was that simple. Today, (Day 28) I mailed a box of goodies to my friend, Vicki. It is funny what I noticed as soon as I joined the 29 days, all the nice acts around me. Today, at the post office, someone held the door for me and allowed me to get in front of them even though I offered them back their place in line. The line was long....out the door. The selfless gentlemen held both doors and refused to take his place in front of me. He wasn't older, maybe in his mid thirties. Maybe he joined 29 Days too!

The presents were numerous. Such a generous family. You can tell by Mr.S's face he love the Nikon camera my parents got him.
Christmas morning was too quick. I just want to push the pause button and take it all in. Hayden got her very important present... a New cell phone. Perfect for her texting... The kids are in their new pajamas which is always the first gift of Christmas and given on Christmas Eve. My mom started this tradition with me when I was little. Old Navy had snowmen fleece pajamas...extra cozy and extra cute!
Shane and I had fun with a few presents this year. We decided to wrap up 5 of their favorite foods and mix them in with the gifts. It was hilarious when they opened them. The look of their faces was priceless. Both were happy with the food. It just shows you that it really is the little things that matter.
