I have some exciting news.... I am going to be DEMONSTRATING some of the NEW OCCASIONS MINI CATALOG PRODUCTS at our Stampin' Up! LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE in Arizona next month!!!! So... as you can imagine.. I've been making SAMPLES SAMPLES SAMPLES with the new goodies, and I cannot share them with you until after my presentations on Jan. 6th. If you are attending Leadership, please stop by my booth in the Make & Take room on the 6th either between 2pm and 4pm or between 6pm and 8pm ! :) See you then!
So... in the mean time, I thought I'd share some Christmas pictures - SOUTHERN CALIFORINA STYLE...
Here is Jason with his 4 cousins (my brother's kids) in their backyard (I think their backyard is BIGGER than our home!)
We drove 400+ miles to Southern California to celebrate Christmas with my brother and his family in their gorgeous home. We got to see my dad and his wife briefly before they took off on vacation. We stopped in Bakersfield on the way back home to see Eric's parents... so it was nice to see many of our local family this year.
My brother and his wife by their pool...
Gorgeous bougainvillea in their backyard:
Fun snacks for the boys:
Stampin' Up! goodies for the girls:
Great shirt from my sis in law for Jason:
We also did some celebrating before we left... YUMMY dessert for Ashley:
Sharon liked what I made for her:
We LOVED what Sharon made for us... (filled with yummy cookies):
It's always easy to find things with Joy's name on them..
and I just have to say... this is the ONE THING that I really HATE at Christmas time.... someday someone will invent ornament hangers that don't get all tangled up!
I hope that your Christmas was FABULOUS, and I pray that you all stay safe and enjoy celebrating as we ring in 2010 !!!
