As of today there are only 5 days 'till the big man comes! And 4 shopping days left... I finished mine up yesterday and was putting my credit card back in my purse and jabbed something up in under my left ring finger - finger nail... I thought I was going to cry right there in front of the electronics sales boy in WalMart! I think it might have just been a paper cut under there, but it seperated my nail in the corner from the skin ... no blood, just pain!!!! And now it is really hard to type because it is so sore!

On to a better subject,
Look at this little sweetheart...

Dakota had his Christmas party yesterday at school. He LOVED the cupcakes, er well, the icing!
They had a book exchange instead of a gift exchange. I admit, I was against it at first because I thought they should let the kids play with toys and forget school stuff. But you know, those kids were THRILLED with the books they got! I was AMAZED!! They just loved them! Especially my little guy....


There is a story behind that picture... I have to tell on myself to tell it though!
I have always liked to smell of new books, magazines and such. Well, he has seen me do it so much that now he does it! I looked down yesterday and saw him with his nose stuck in his book. He WAS the ONLY one that done that... So I HAD to snap this picture. And yes, I explained that he should maybe not do it at school. I embarressed the poor little thing. I explained to him that it is a little odd and that we should only be "book sniffers" at home. HEE HEE! I think it is too funny! AND for anyone reading this thinking "huffing" NO!! It is only books that we smell of and nothing else. And YES I HAVE explained to him that some things we should not smell of because they can hurt you and it is important to not sniff ANYTHING else. Now back to the lighthearted side of the story. He was just being HIMSELF... and that is as cute as can be!! Yep, we are weirdos but come on, I know there are other "book sniffers" out there, admit it. Tell the world you are a book sniffer :)!!!

This is going to be a good day! It is Saturday and it is just me and him here today. I think I'm going to finish up my Christmas cards (yes, I did put it off until the last minute this year!) and start working on some things with the newest catatog from Close To My Heart. I got a BIG shipment in last Thursday and can't wait to start playing with it all! I may wait until after Christmas because one of my presents from my hubby is a huge box full of Stampin' Up! stuff. Yes, I do sell Close To My Heart products, but LOVE Stampin' UP! punches and stuff! I have seen some really great things made from Close To My Heart and Stampin' Up! products ... I will have enough to keep me busy well into next year!

My little guy is up and wanting breakfast so I guess I'm going to go fix us some toast with ham. I'm starving too!
Hope everybody has a good weekend!
Happy Scrappin'

Hi Lisa - I have to admit, I am a "book sniffer" too. Mostly just hardbacks (no particular reason) but perhaps they just seem like they would smell best..... so you are not alone! I think there are worse things we could do to our children! lol :) Merry CHRISTmas! Kristin
