well here it is...day 1 of my christmas journal. had such a fun time making it. and so excited to continue. went scrapbooking tonight with a dear friend. had a wonderful time. it's amazing what a few hours of ME time does for the soul. I'm rested, recharged and ready to play with the kids all day tmr. Rich is working, so the kids and i are off to finish the xmas shopping and hit the park.
