My Father in Law and Momma Jody headed out yesterday and should be back home in TN this morning . What a Wonderful Christmas we had with our family. That was the best Christmas gift under our tree this year.
So many goodies everywhere ... 7- Layer cookies , Pecan Pie, German Chocolate cake , Pumpkin Pie , Coconut Cream pie , Chocolate pie , Cookies .
We had our family photos taken on Thursday which we were scheduled for Wednesday but we got a LOT of snow and it was not safe for anyone to be out in that mess . Thankful Courtney could re schedule us in for Thursday and it was so much fun 2 hours of photos / couple photos / group photos etc....
As soon as we get them I will post some of them. Here is a sneak peek of one of the proof's. We had so much fun !
Speaking of SNOW Dad did something he had not done in years ... Shoveled snow (See photo)
While they were here we went to Bronners /Famous TONYS ( which we were good and we all split this HUGE Nacho). Jody & I went to Home Goods not once but twice .
One thing with this fabulous store is if you see something you really love you should get it because it won't be there the next day . Case in point Jody found these adorable nesting baskets for her Kitchen in the Christmas section which was 60% off .
There were (3) sets of baskets and she picked up 2 I mentioned to her she should just get all 3 but she only picked up 2 then by the time we got to check out she put 1 back ... fast forward ... we got home and dad said she should have got more of those for that price . We went back the next day and she did get another set BUT the 3rd one was gone, as well as the end tables she fell in love with .
We would have went to Ikea but the snow knocked out 1 day of getting out .
Hubby got my Mom & Jody a Pandora Bracelet for Christmas and Pat got Jessie a Pandora.
Dad and Hubby hooked up new heating vents in my Stamping area and my Stampin office while he was here and Hubby got me a Beautiful Computer chair ( see photo) . Dont you love his wrapping with blue duc tape? It's a guy thing LOL!
While dad & hubby went over to the rental house and put in new counter tops and the kitchen sink Friday night I did Shellac on Jody's nails and she loved it ! She picked Clearly Pink and Mother of Pearl ( glitter ) are they pretty or what ?? She has such pretty nails.
Oh and look at the rock on her finger Dad got her ! We all agree her new sparkley nails go so great with her new ring and Pandora bracelet.
As 2012 comes to an end I just wanted to tell each of you I am so thankful & humbled that you welcome me into your home each day Thank you for all your encouragement with your emails and comments.
I was thinking of a year in review with photos. But what photos could I post that most of you haven't already seen on my Sunday shares.
I will be starting a 2013 Sunday Share category this new year .This way the whole year will have it's own year in review . Today's Sunday Share will be the 1st post in that category.
I am so overwhelmed with Gratitude for all of you . I have always said that stamping has brought us together but over the years I feel all of you have become a part of my extended family . So many of you weather its through my blog / email / texting / Facebook / Twitter / Phone calls ...I can't not express how you all have made my day brighter over the last year .
I am looking forward to 2013 and all the stamping fun we will be having together . Thank you so much for picking me to be your SU! demonstrator .

We are still enjoying our time with my Father in law & Jody who came up from TN for Christmas .
I wanted to pop in and share with you what I made everyone for Christmas .
I seen this idea in Pinterest and just knew it would be such a perfect gift for everyone ..
I started out making my hubby's 1st then I got alittle carried away and made everyone one .
All photos were printed out on copy paper. I just resized those in black & white to fit the 8 x 10 frame the center photo is printed also in copy paper but in color to make the focal point of each story frame .
I can't believe we are close to a week from Christmas & still no snow here in Michigan ( I am not complaining ) .
We are so excited about this Friday. That's because my Father in law and Jody and coming for Christmas so the Griffith house has been a little crazy getting things ready . Plus the day after Christmas we have a Photographer coming to the house to take family pictures.
We haven't done them since Jessie was little so we thought it was a great time to get that done when the family will be together .
We are having Courtney that did Jessie's Senior Pictures do them for us . She is amazing click HERE to view her website .
I thought I would share 2 of my favorite things for Christmas time wrapping ... These goodies make wrapping a breeze .
This past Friday we got our Sleep number bed delivered. We went from a queen size to a king size mainly because hubby is so tall (6'5").
While putting the sheets on I did something to my right shoulder.
I am not sure what I did but I can't seem to move my arm forward or above my chest without a sharp pain .
I was thinking I had my shoulder out of join and then my friends on FB mentioned it could be Frozen shoulder... I am not sure what has happened . If it doesn't feel better by tomorrow I will go to the doctor and see what's going on .
So needless to say I can't stamp and didn't film any videos for this week ( sorry) .
I will share items I made before this all happened along with a couple super cute Christmas cards I recieved in the mail last week .
We got some happy news My Father in law and Jody are coming up from TN for Christmas . We are all so excited !
