Time to Breathe

Happy Monday everyone!

Ahhh...that is the sound of me exhaled. LOL  I finally feel like I can finally breathe.  This last week has been a busy one for K (which also means her mama).  Several months ago, she decided to try out for the school play. The play was High School Musical and she has always loved that movie and the music.  She didn't want a big part, just one of the ensemble parts.  And so, she has been practicing after school several days a week for the last couple of months to play the part of one of the "skater dudes".  Both sets of grandparents were able to come see her.  (sorry for the bad photos, we were 40 minutes early and still had to sit quite a ways back). 



 K has been taking piano lessons since September and had her first piano recital on Thursday night. (more bad lighting. Sorry.)


On top of this, she had finals this week.  Three of the tests were on Friday and three more today.  So far she has done well.  I am hoping today goes as well as Friday.  She seemed very confident this morning as I dropped her off.

Keeping with giving you ideas for fast and easy Christmas gift wrap ideas, I have one more to share with you today.

We had a gorgeous photo inspiration at Emma's this week.  I am a sucker for pink red and white together.  :)

Here are my projects I made based on this wonderful photo. You can find the supplies here.



Have you tried these Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark Squares?  Oh man, they are heavenly!!!

I will probably not have a chance to post again before Christmas so I want to wish you all a VERY Merry Christmas.  I hope you get to spend time with those that you love.  Thanks for stopping by!

Wow, you always make my head spin with all the activities you guys manage to do! Makes me feel like a slug. ;) Love, love, love that your girls grab life and get involved. They really seem like they have fun, and that is the best thing of all.
Love your fabulous little treat bag. I've always been such a sucker for treats in a cello bag, and I love the fun topper you made. Red and pink are one of my favorite holiday combos. Really love that sweet snowman, too.
Wishing you and your family a very merry Christmas, Lisa!
