Only 4 more days!!!!

Can you believe Christmas is almost here! Can't wait! Looking forward to seeing my family, watching the girls open their gifts and celebrating my Savior's birth! What could be better? :)

It was a busy week around the Dorsey household. As promised I have some pictures of L with her Sweden project. You know, it just isn't fair when she has a scrapbooker for a mom. LOL I helped her make this wreath using my Sizzix Pointsettia Die to make the leaves for her wreath. The girls just love using that thing. :) She also wove the basket you can see her holding in the picture with her best friend. Did I mention that all of this was due the day after the big party at our house? Did I also mention that she had an 8 paragraph report due about Sweden due the day before? We survived and she even has a smile to show for it. LOL




We got to spend the weekend watching this sweetie swim.
She had another fabulous meet. She dropped 7 seconds off her 100 freestyle and 3 seconds off her 100 breaststroke. She also swam her first IM and did great. We went out for ice cream to celebrate afterward. :)


Since the meet was home DH volunteered to time so I could take pictures. I know this one is pretty grainy but I love it anyway. I have the best DH, he is such a great dad.


Still need a gift box for Christmas goodies? I made this one for K's teacher (love that woman!) You can find all the supplies, except the berries on the Emma's Paperie Blog.


Have a very blessed Christmas. I hope it is everything you hope for and so much more.
