Photo Of The Week # 1

Yes, I realize that I am WAY behind with my POTW, but things have been really crazy this past week trying to get everything ready for Christmas. I'm only about half-way done with my shopping & still not completely done decorating the tree, but I wanted to post this picture anyway. Our tree is going to be done in all purple & gold this year & I just love it! I have some more ornaments & the bows to hang plus I have to put the ribbon on still. This picture was taken using my cross-screen filter.....told ya I would be using it a lot :)

I've also been having a lot of fun giving away some RAKs (Random Acts Of Kindness) on 2 Peas. I won 3 RAKs in one week, so I'm just repaying the kindness. I even made some homemade items for some of the prizes......I hope the recepients like them :) Now I need to get busy making my Christmas cards.....haven't even started those yet. Don't know what I'm waiting for.....I guess Christmas? LOL I can't believe that it's less than 2 1/2 weeks away! I really need to get in gear! So if you don't see me updating my blog much this month, you'll know why. I'm going to try to keep up with the POTW, though. Here's another one of my Christmas lights on my tree:













We woke up to 6+ inches of snow on the ground.....to be honest, I haven't even gone outside yet today to find out exactly how much we got overnight, but it was enough to cancel school & I was able to sleep in :) Cassie woke up at 10:30 this morning & says to me "I guess we don't have school today?" LOL Figured I'd let her sleep in, too.

Off to get some more laundry done & then bowling tonight. Have a wonderful weekend!
