Valentine's Day is in the air...and on my mind.

So with Valentine's Day coming up I was trying to think of cards for my family.  I'm still in the progress of valentines for my son's class, but at least I got my family's cards done.  Thanks for checking them out today.  I hope you enjoy and get inspired.

This card is for my daughter.  The hearts and flowers were cut by the new Cricut cartridge from CTMH Artiste.

This card is for my son.  Again the rocket and blast was cut by the CTMH Artiste cartridge.

This card is for my husband.  The gears were cut using the CTMH Artiste Cricut cartridge.

Thank you guys for stopping by today.  I hope these inspired someone.  I hope you have a great day.

Our last Christmas in Japan...

This was our last Christmas here in Japan!  The time has finally come when we will be coming back to the states soon.  Still waiting on our next duty station but as of now all the major holidays that we have had without our family in the states has been had.  This Christmas was really nice spending it with my little ones.  Not having to get dressed up or anything to go anywhere.  Dinner was ribs that were cooked for hours, mashed potatoes, and my crockpot mac and cheese.  Here are some of my favorite pictures from the holidays.  I hope you enjoy.
Zoey waiting for Thomas' first performance to start.

Of course my son is the only one standing "right" in front of the mic.

I took of few different pictures of the class while the kids were crying and being crazy.

The LOOT!!!

They did pretty good for only a half hour of trick or treating.  The last house we went to Thomas got scared and was ready to go home.

Christmas Eve and new pjs.

The stockings were hung on the staircase with precision.

Waiting on Santa.

Christmas morning 2012.  The stockings were filled with goodies from Santa.

Thomas cheering.

Zoey checking out her new wheels. Unfortunately Santa didn't measure her and the 4 wheeler was a little small.  

Soccer ball, all he really asked for every time he was asked what he wanted was a soccer ball.

Cheers from Zoey!

Yay for play kitchens!!!

Thomas' goodies plus a table from Santa to play trains and cars on.

Our little chef.

Mommy taught me the two handed, mitted grab.

I hope you guys enjoyed the photos.  Have a good rest of the day.
