"SMILE FOR THE CAMERA"

Since my camera is acting "goofy" well not really goofy, i think it's broken I don't know when i'll be able to take photos to post.  Damit!  Since I wasn't "smart" in purchasing the extended warranty for my camera, i don't know how much it will cost me to fix.  I've had my Sony digital for 3years and ONLY NOW it decided to give me a headache.  I guess i'll be calling Sony to find out what's wrong with it & the dreaded cost to fix it.  If it's too much to fix, i'll just have to convince hubby to buy me another one....hey, my birthday is coming up in 2 months.  Hmmm...copic markers or camera?  Such a tough choice.  


Enough about the grumbling....i leave you with a cute photo i took of the "girls".  This is my mom's pom pom Mia.  She's approx 9years old now.  Lily loves to play with her and tries to bite her tiny feet when they're playing ball. So funny & fun to watch.  Thank god they get along.  

I think i'll be spending my New Years Eve making cards & writing up my resolutions for 2008.  

BE SAFE, BE SMART & BE HAPPY THIS NEW YEAR!!!

Introducing.....Our "furry" Daughter Lily


I haven't officially introduced you to our (husband & I) "furry" love of our lives....LILY.  She's currently (in this photo) 1yr & 7months old.  She is currently almost 4lbs and she probably won't grow much more.  Lily is a mixed maltese with 1/8 poodle & 1/8 chihuahua.  This dog is SUPER smart.  She's potty trained, knows alot of words....water, food, pillow, blanket, toy, monkey, ball, boyfriend, etc..... We consider her our child since we don't have any (YET).  Lily has brought so much joy, happiness & love to our family.  She's constantly making us laugh with things she does...for example, she likes to push her ball (one of her favorite toys) with her nose under our sofa and looks at us with her sad eyes saying to get it for her.  So, as you lay down to reach under the sofa to get the ball, she's right there next to you with her butt up high and her nose & eyes looking under the sofa waiting patiently.  It's just hilarious.  One of these days I will need to get a good picture of this.  She is just simply spoiled by her mom & dad.  But most of all she is greatly loved by the both of us.  I must warn you though, she doesn't like people very much (very protective of her mom especially).  Her bark is probably much scarrier than her bite.  But we all know she couldn't even hurt a fly....hahaha!  

This is her most recent picture taken this Christmas.  We had her groomed just in time for Christmas & all dressed up for picture taking.  She may just be the princess of clothes....she has her very own closet "almost" full of clothes.  

So, on this blog I will be posting alot of picture and stories of Lily since she is part of the family.

When I saw Lauren Meaders version of this, I just had to give it a try.  I'm glad I did because it was so easy & fun.  These were given to those people that you forget or just want to give them something small.  I have become very inspired by her creations and am grateful that she is willing to share them with us.  Thank you Lauren!  


My New Years resolution for 2008' will be to dedicate more of my time (what time?) to doing what I love....Scrapbooking & Card-making.  Last year 2007' I didn't get to make things as I would have liked.  I plan on selling at craft fairs next year also...so YES that means I have to start getting busy.  I hope 2008' will be a better year for me.  My life can't be revolving around work only.  

I hope to keep up with THIS blog and post some exciting things here.  You know how life can get....:0(  

Merry Christmas Everyone


.....Tis the season to be jolly...falalalala lalalala (hope i got enough falala's in...haha) Wishing you and yours a Very Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year!!!
