I {heart} the blooper reel

i love it when a dvd has a "blooper reel" 

always good for a laugh. 

here is our version of a blooper reel from our family photo shoot: 

a little argument going on between #2 and 3 about holding hands
miss j is always so cooperative
the younger two are making a break for it
the pics of all 4 on the sled didn't work out so well...

trying again

picture crasher


so many faces
snowball fight


again, stellar cooperation from miss j

after only about 15 minutes out there miss baby was inconsolable sad

not even a kiss from mommy will help.  we're done.
the end.

a couple quick projects

just sharing a couple projects as of lately (and i use that term quite loosely).  i seem to be in a bit of a slump. not wanting to do any type of project, not wanting to decorate for Christmas, just not really wanting to do anything apparently. 

anyhoo, a set of cards i made (inspired by this on pinterest

i cut random "birdish" type shapes out of a piece of knit fabric and then traced around it, added legs, beak and eye.  these came together quick and i think they turned out pretty cute :)

and the only scrapbook page i have created in months....

it is nothing super exciting. and looking at it now i wish i would have added more paper behind the pictures or something.  it all looks rather blah.  BUT it was done in like 15 minutes AND it's done (unless of course i rip the pictures off and add more paper). 

that is all.  i will now continue on in my scroogy-ness, not wanting to do anything ways, but i can scratch off "update blog" off my to do list for today. ;)
