WOYWW - First week of holidays!

Good morning deskers. You will be proud to know that my playroom has had a thorough clean. It took 3 day but it is such a great feeling to work in a clean room! The desk might not look very clean, but I assure you that it is only the left overs from recent play times and most of it has been cleaned already. You will see curtain hooks from a curtain that has been finished and is hanging already. Some pink vinyl from some signs I made for mt daghter's business and no, those are not potato chipsm that is my pencil bag!

 I gave myself a family photo shppt for Christmas and those beautiful photo's sparked the scrapbooking bug again. I forgot how relaxing and fulfilling scrapbooking can be.
 The first one is of me and all my children and grandchildren. Love having those.
 Next one is of my two youngest. They are 22 months apart and after 28 years I can not remember them ever fighting about anything. They are each other's best friends and I just LOVE watching the two of them together. They make me laugh every day.
The last one is of my son with all his nieces and nephews. They juat adore their 'omie'. He gives the best gifts, he understands them and is the only single man I know that has the guts to take 5 kids on an outing and have them beg for more when he takes them home
I am off with DH to go and do some Christmas shopping. Wish me luck.
Happy WOYWW. I will visit a little later. Enjoy the rest of this week.

  8. Those are lovely pages! You will treasure them. Not many people scrapbook anymore. Even I have put it on the backburner, being busy with other things.
    How wonderul that you have a son who is so good with kids. He'll make some lucky lady a fine husband!
    Have a good week,
