FINALLY!




I have been looking for FOUR days for the cord for my camera. I have pictures to upload and no way to upload them! Here is a picture of my 'clan' on the 27th. We celebrate a birthday on the 26th(youngest son) and an anniversary on the 28th(parents 51st)....so the 27th is a great day to gather! Included with us is our older son's girlfriend~ we feel like she is family already!




I have had some 'ah HA' moments the past couple of days...here is the 1st: Got any batting scraps? Got ornaments to pack?...see the connection!? I have felt guilty in the past just pitching those scraps out. Between saving for dog beds for the pound and packing up holiday ornaments, I have found them a HOME...and its NOT in the trash!

Happy New Year, my friend! Hope your holidays were wonderful! *S* Thanks for the batting/ornament tip...I too hate just throwing out the scraps and I do stuff pillowcases for animal shelter bedding already so now I can use some for ornies too! :D

Thanks for the idea! I don't throw out the scraps usually - except for the tiny ones - they just accumulate forever in sacks LOL! Now I have a great idea about what to do with them - if I can only remember it until next year!

Nice looking family!

Great idea with the batting scraps. Just think of all the items you can pack with batting scraps.

What a fabulous idea!! That almost makes me want to unpack everything again and clear out my batt-scraps. Thanks!
