Catching up our Christmas 2008 pictures

Dear Friends....
How is your Holiday going so far?
Hope your Christmas was amazing.

Just had time regrouping myself yesterday and unload the camera 1 and camera 2 and camera 3 to put all the pictures I snap here and there during the whole season to be print. Turn out to be quite a lot...:-) Like it is a surprise to find out!

Well.. I really wish I have enough spare time and energy this New Year's holiday to put all of these in an album. Before all the decoration being put down to the box and the songs change to regular songs again...(which is really turn down the spirit to zero, if I say so).

So...hope you also have something to catch up to do this last few days! And don't forget to make your New Year's resolution...I am making it into the layout tonight! And gonna share with you tomorrow.

We don't have space for our big Christmas Tree this year, and I don't want to waste to buy another small tree which is mean we have to buy all new smaller decoration, and Adam very much want the nativity set we saw last month, so here it is, the nativity set for our home, and the kids had fun decorated the scene on the back.

Snuggling close after that....

"Mom, let's draw Santa!"

Preparing some gifts.....

Letter to Santa is a wish....

Having fun....

The kids loooove to perform the drama and the songs, again...and again....

Adam's performance at school

Audy decided to build the menger for our navivity set...and here come the little helper...

My favorite time is this...

On Christmas day at the church...

And last but not least...

Happy Holidays to you all................

What do you want to do now?

Begin doing what you want to do now.
We are not on this earth for eternity.
We have only this moment,
sparkling like a star in our hand
and melting like a snowflake.

Ticket For Life

Today I went to my kids school to get their first term report card. And from Adam's teachers (Mrs.Tia and Ms.Sri), I got this heartwarming note. For all the parents in the class. It melt my heart instantly, so I want to share it here with you, all mommy in the world...


by Wanda Oleson

Bandage scraped knees. Kiss away fears.

Watch their heartbreak and dry their tears.

Teach them to know what's right and what's wrong.

Show them how to be gentle and when to be strong.

Tell them you love them, and then let it show.

That's the easiest part of helping them grow.

There needs to be discipline, but don't over do it.

Praise and encouragement strengthens their spirit.

Show them respect for their feelings and thoughts.

They should know their important, self worth can't be bought.

Show them some patience and always be kind.

Developing minds make mistakes time to time.

Teach them to be the best they can be.

When they're happy within,

Christmas Album - Final - (for 2007 Christmas pictures)

After I made up my mind (very quick), I used this album for my 2007 Christmas pictures and stories instead of using this year pictures. Although I know, (and you know for sure....) that working with fresh memories and pictures always double the fun and excitement, but then, if I don't do last year Christmas into an album NOW, the chance will become rarer and rarer in the upcoming months. Hhhh. So accompanied by Josh Groban, Kenny G and Chris Botti, which take turn until 2 a.m two days in a row this weekend,(of course they only do the singing and blowing part) I finish the album.

If only I had spare time at New Year's weekend, I'll make this year Christmas album for sure. Because this year Christmas's papers from K&co are begging me so much to use them. Absolutely adorable. Hmmm. Okay,okay. I'll do it. So next year I'll only dealing with what's happening in front of my eyes at Christmas. Hopefully.
Now, I still have to wrap some Christmas gifts for my kids school teachers.
See you around... bye..

Christmas Album - base

This is where the inspiration for my album come from. If you are local, you probably had seen this boxes at the stores.Or at my wrapping store. Because this boxes are thin card boxes, they are easily being cut and modified. And I can't resist the cute image..... After a few hours, this boxes turn out to be like this :

And for the inside, I gather many many scrap papers and transparencies to make it interesting :

The whole book looks like this :

Now, the fun part begin...when I will put together all the pictures and the embellishment inside. I still have to decide whether this book will be for This Year Christmas (2008), ....or Last Year Christmas (2007).... which I still had not succesfully put all the pictures in an album...(already a year gone by again, oh, my...) I'll be back to post the finish album soon. Have to hurry..because this base for Christmas Album will be on sale at SCRAPKING counter next week. And only 12 album will be there.........I only can make that much!

Have a nice day!
