A New Year, a New Baby, a New Focus............ - Lots of Pictures of our Family in November and December too!!! :-)

Happy Happy New Year All,

So I have not posted for a few weeks which was actually an accident because I wrote up two posts to post my last Design Team post for The Greeting Farm - Critter Crew and another fun Guest Design Team assignment for Claudia and Company formerly known as Die Cuts R Us.  I just assumed they posted as they were scheduled to but I came to my blog today for the first time in a few weeks and see they are still sitting in my post lists as scheduled for 12/24/10 and 12/31/10  wonder if my blog realizes those dates have come and gone???  LOL!!!

Anyway with a New Baby who actually just turned 4 months old I find myself having less and less time to do things for fun or for "Me" like stamping and especially since Baby Meadow is our last little one I don't want to steal time away from spending precious moments with her!!!  I also find myself less able to stay up past mid-night and still be an active Mommy to 4 the next day so less things are getting done in my hours after the kids go to bed at night.

My last current Design Team assignments were over on New Years Eve so I have decided not to pursue any new Design Team Assignments for a while at least.  Instead I am going to take my blog back to what it was in the beginning it was a FUN blog where I shared my creative projects along with fun stories about the kids and lots and lots of pictures!!!!

So now I am getting back to the basics I am going to stamp for fun and do fun challenges and contests when I have time and not stress about getting assignments and blog posts done on time!!!  I am going to post more stories about the kido's and share more of what we have going on around this happening house with 4 kids, 2 Dogs, 3 Cats, 3 Fish, and 1 Bunny Rabbit.

So Here are some fun pictures of the kids in November and December since I have not uploaded pictures in a while!!!  :-)

Tucker who at first pretended that he did not have a Baby sister now loves Baby Meadow very much and so here are some of the first pictures of him with his Baby sister he is a proud big brother now!!!  These were in early November.
Meadow's first time in her Bumbo Chair.  She loves to sit up and be part of the family.  She was so little here her feet barely came out of the holes it was funny!!!  They come out a bit more now.

Your kids are so cute! I found a really good site if anyone is looking to get poodle skirts or costumes that look like they are from the 50's. Thanks for the blog!
