this week's CT LOs

For the second AAM page that was due for Scrapdish this month- my take on the topic of what you do when you aren't scrapping. With 7 people at home, if I'm not scrapping I'm usually trying to keep up with the cleaning tasks of everyday life (not my favorite pastime by any stretch of the imagination)!
journaling: Housework has never been a favorite pastime for me. There are so many more interesting things to do with my time than spend it cleaning up after myself and my family- like scrapping all of the memories and pictures that have been made. The cleaning will get done eventually; no one has gone naked or hungry yet!

A LO with pics from last year tree decorating event
journaling: Having grown up with an artificial Christmas tree, taking the tree out of the box and putting it together is as much a tradition to me as bringing home a real tree is to some families. The kids like to help put together the tree now- sorting the branches by size and color, ‘fluffing’ them, and bringing the correct branch to the parent putting the tree together. Then, they take turns helping put the lights and garlands on the tree. Each child has their own ornament collection and gets to hang them on the tree, and finally the family ornaments are brought out and put on. Everyone enjoys the effort during the christmas season with the twinkling lights giving the room that special christmas glow that nothing else can emulate. I think it must be a bit magical.

Robin's latest kit at SBB was perfect for these photos of us taking a little hike in one of the local parks in town.
journaling: We decided to get out of the house for a bit Saturday, November 4, 2006. We ventured out to Palmer Park and found an entry point to the trails. It is amazing how peaceful and quiet it can be in the heart of the city when you drive up the hill into the park. It is like you are out in the wilderness even though there is a major city street not a mile away.We enjoyed walking on the Grandview trail for about an hour before the sun started to set.

And finally, the project I've been working on the last few days- the Digicraft for December at RAKscraps. My family isn't going to be surprised at all this christmas since I post everything here LOL! Oh well, at least they can't see what is on the CDs tucked inside ;)

Whew! I think that takes care of everything scrap-related I've done recently. Tomorrow I will be busy in the kitchen making a few things for dinner on Thursday and prepping other things that won't be cooked until Thursday morning. Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!
