She's nine now.

Yeap my baby turned nine on Thursday. Here she is blowing me a birthday kisses. I took a similar photo last year and thought I'd try and do the same each year or as long as she will let me.lolThe little monkey in her hands was one of her pressies from us. A few years ago I altered up a shadow box I found at a market for $3 that just happened to have 24 little windows in it for an advent calendar. As some of the windows were bigger I made sure that the 17th was one of the bigger ones and a small pressie always gets popped in the advent calendar. Jojo was wrapped up pretty tight to fit in but he did.
We got her a DS and a few games for her b'day and she loves it. Will probably take her a while to get the hang of what to do with some of the games we got for her but that is all in the learning I guess. She also got from us a little pet shop play house, wii game, an outfit along with a xmas book and pjs, that has become a tradition of sort each year.
From her grandparents on Craig's side she got Mario cart for the wii, a puppet, some bathers, boardies and a rashie. From my parents she got boardies and a rashie along with her first bottle of real perfume as she calls it. Barbie stuff.
From other family she got some books, a fairy ornament, a mirrored jewelry box, a dvd and her first real make up set.
Totally spoilt but you get that. She had a sleep over with two friends on Thursday and I took them all of to the local fun station for a play and lunch the next day. Lots of fun was had by all three girls.

52 week catch up.
I bet you all thought I had forgotten about it but seeing as it is only a few more weeks left now I wasn't going to stop now.
Week 45
Asher's pal hoggie
Week 46
Dancing concert rehersal
Week 47
I can't show as it is a pic of one of the cards that are going to be published in the new year.
Week 48
Dressed as a xmas rock angel for a xmas dress up day at school.
On my rock angel page I have used some of my purple onion stamps. The small pine tree, happy holidays note block and the Skinny dip alpha.

I also made up some quick gift tags using the small pine again and the Christmas sentiments from the mini sentiments set.
and a gift box using the Happy holidays note block again. lol I made up the box then tried to pop in the pressie and the bangles tied onto the front wouldn't fit into the box with the rest of it.

I also needed a few more Xmas cards to post out to family so I grabbed my Dec a la tart kit and made some more cards similar to the ones I made before and there is still heaps of paper left in the kit.

I played along with this months sketch challenge over at Artistic and this is the page I did.
I so couldn't resist scrapping the pics of Missy jumping into the water finally and it wasn't a fluke or a once of as she was doing it again on Saturday. Yeah Missy.
Well that is all from me for now. Two more days of work for me this year and bot will they go slow.
I also want to wish everyone a safe and happy Xmas and new year.
Till next time thanks for popping in, any comments and happy scrapping
