Great time planning events 2008 and scrappin' staff

Wow! What a beautiful weekend to have a staff retreat and planning time.
We have a great year planned for all of you with more in the making for our VIP members.
We were warm by the fireplace, yet enjoyed sitting outside on the deck. The weather was just to pretty to stay in all the time. Janett and Scralett got mud on their shoes as they walked on the beach. They really did wade in the water.
I think we did about 40 pages abd a couple of Bind it all albums. Food was great and the love of the staff is so very special. What a blessing to have staff work together. Look at the website soon for all the dates and events you will want to write in your calendar.

Family Time

I loved having the family in the home this Christmas. Debbie, Steve,Scott and Ashley pulled in and the thrill of family moved in too. The music went on the other "real" tree went up. The family receipe for cookies got rolling and the camera flashing. Mike got me a Sony video camera (watch out everyone.. I am likin' it)and the family history is going live! The day they left my wonderful son Rick and one of my grandsons, Johnny arrived. More food, fun and laughter. I took him out for a special grandson shopping trip.
Things I loved about the visits: evening prayers with the family, making more memories, going to the tea house with the girls, seeing Santa and being family. Spending time with my Mike before everyone got up and enjoying our time together. Things I am looking forward to in 2008. More time with him. I plan on being in his boat on the lake early in the morning with the coffee and enjoying us. Travel will happen more.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Remembering all of you on this celebration of Jesus' Birthday. You have been a blessing in my life and I bring to you a gift. The gift of a blessed New Year. The gift of happy memories to scrapbook. The gift of spending time with your family and loved ones. The gift of scrappin with Scrapbook Village staff. May these and many more come true for you.

I am getting real excited!!! We were going to South Carolina for the holidays but it just didn't work out this year. So guess what?? Debbie and her family are coming! I couldn't imagine Christmas without her. My son Rick, also lives there and he said it is time for him to come "home too" in Kentucky. He will be coming between Christmas and New Years. I can't wait for the grand kids to snuggle and songs to sing, games to play, and praying together. "Merry" Christmas to me!!!! Lots of pictures to take and scrapbook!!!
