Pre-Christmas Rush

It's on!!

Finally sorting through photos and just had to scrap these...Rainer's first ever school award for.....handwriting!!! Gotta love Prep!!

Felicity's Free Online Class at Bon's using the yummy Boy Kit!!

Catching up on the SCRAP YOUR YEAR layouts for the In-Laws!!

And, of course, Christmas Cards.
These made with a gorgeous Hero Arts Stamp.

These with the free Christina Re paper in Scrapbooking Memories yonks ago.

These made with those fab layered Prima Flowers.

Bought the bells from Spotlight...super-duper easy.

In the last month, we've had a few milestones! Rainer is sitting in Mass now for the full hour; we have lots of echolalia (repeating of words/phrases); his receptive language seems to be off the charts (woohoo); we commemorated 10 years since my Nonna died and 2 years since my Dad died. It's been an emotional rollercoaster this year and I couldn't have made it this far without LOTS of support - both IRL and online.

In 3 days we'll be celebrating the birth of Jesus, and in 5 days we'll be celebrating the birth of Giovanna!! Yes! Me! We'll be holidaying and spending some much-needed family time together the next 4 weeks. Michael will need to travel a lot next year, so I'm preparing for that!!

Until next year.....when I'll have my new WORD...

and Merry Christmas!!
