Merry Christmas Morning!!

I had a wonderful Christmas eve with my family and boyfriend. We ate and drank, and gave prezzies and laughed. We always laugh so much...it's great!!!

Tonight I will spend with my Mom and my four legged critters. Have a nice crab and lobster dinner and then relax and exchange our gifts to each other. WooHoo! And by the looks of it...I've been extra good this year!!!




MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!
HUGS!!!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!




Well it's here!!! WOW the time went way too fast...heehee but I am ready!!!
Tonight the family will come over and we will eat, drink and be merry!! Exchange some prezzies and have lots of fun(like we always do!)

On a different note, we found out that my kitty has diabetes. Which we kind of knew was going to happen cause he's such a fat cat but we were hopefull that he wouldn't BUT now we have to give him insulin shots twice a day. I am so scared of hurting him or doing something wrong. Last night was our first night giving him a shot( we had a lesson from the vet of course) needless to say I did NOT sleep well at all. I'm watching him like a hawk anytime he moves. The needle part isn't so bad, it's everything else. Make sure he eats, 12 hours in between, not to much, not little, COMA from shock...AGGGGGHHHHHH.

I know there are a lot of cats and their owners going through this and I know we will get used to it but.......my tummy hurts! But I will do what it takes to keep my baby healthy cause I need him with me for as long as he can. Good thing about this is his qualtiy of life is going to improve(he's been very tired) plus it's not a disease we can't control. It could be sooo much worse than this so I am greatful for that!

Okay enough of that!!!!


MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!
BIG HUGS from Julie(FUNGUS),James(FATCAT),Mom and ME!!!!!!

December 17!!!!

Already?!!!?

Where does the time go??? Well I am happy to say that I am pretty much ready for Christmas. Everyone is bought for...I need to do some wrapping(which I LOVE to do)!!! And I need to do some baking..I promised the girl's at work that I would make some of my Rocky Road Fudge. I've been told that it's not Christmas without my fudge...LOL.....It is awfully yummy!!!!!

I haven't been doing any bear making.....I'm starting to feel the desire again...I am doing a Christmas swap with my friend Melanie and then I want to make some big bears!

I hope everyone is enjoying the Christmas season!!!!

It's A CLINKER!!!!!!

That's a line from one of my favorite Christmas movies...for those of you who have never seen "A Christmas Story" MUST go and buy it, rent it, burrow it!!! It is fantastic!!! This movie leaves me with the warm and fuzzy Christmas feeling..... And what??? you might ask is a CLINKER!! It's a strand of lights on my Christmas tree that likes to turn off......and then turn back on..............................then it turns off..................................and turns back on!!!! These are not twinkle lights...they are not supposed to do this....LOL...
Every year, it has become a tradition, there is always a strand of lights that burns out....turns on and off....etc. And it always happens just a couple of weeks before Christmas....One time a strand burned out on us two nights before Christmas eve....it never fails.....so there we are running out getting a new set.......cutting the old set off so we can remove it and trying to place a new strand on the tree between all the ornaments on the tree......
So today, there I am sitting,watching TV and from the corner of my eye I see a flash....now at this point I'm not sure what it is or if I even saw anything....and then there it goes again.....is it just my imagination?????? NOOOOOOOOO...It's a CLINKER!!!!!
It's just way to funny!!!!! You just gotta laugh!!

Well anyway here's a picture of my pretty tree outside(who's lights are perfect)buried in the snow...It looks so nice and magical.....The picture was taken from inside the house, that's why there's a little glare...



Hugs,
Kristina

Christmas in Mexico



In Mexico we went shopping down this street called 5TH Avenue, no vechicles were allowed. It was pretty cool and very long...LOL. You kind of forgot that it was the Holiday season until you saw this beautiful tree in the distance!! It was so stunning and of course my pictures don't do it justice.....It was really neat to see!

It's Good To Be Home!!!

I'm back!!!!! I'm so happy I am home I was missing everyone and all my furry four legged pets!!!

We had a blast!! The resort was huge and at first a wee bit over whelming but we finally settled in and got our bearings and everything was fantastic. We had awesome weather minus one day where it rained allllllll dayyyy but we and another couple decided that it wouldn't keep us away so we sat under the roof at the pool bar and had a lot of fun! It was sunny in our minds!!!!

We went on a couple of tours. A shopping tour(of course) in the evening at a place called 5th Avenue it was very cool. Picked up some goodies and got some great pics. Then went to Xel Ha where you got to go tubing down a river and then do some snorkling in the crystal clear water...it was so nice. I don't snorkel so well....LOL...so my baby did that while I basked in the sun and he was my motor and pushed me on the tube...great deal I thought...heehee...The food was great...small portions but you learn to order a few more appies or order room service  before you go to dinner..HAHA!!! Which was also included in the resort. No reservations were needed in any of the restaurants and the longest we ever had to wait was maybe 30 minutes......the hotel rooms were very nice and always very clean and the staff at the resort were great!!

I have some pics to share.....there's a few of my favorites but I have so many it was hard to choose...or they had me in my bathing suit and that I won't share!!!! HAHA wouldn't want to scare you away from my blog....heeeheee...

Well I am all packed and ready to go!!! Except for some last minute do-dads.....

Our spot in the sun is getting closer....I can feel it!!!

I am already feeling a mini withdrawl.....LOL...Now  how crazy is that??? Maybe I should bring some with me...cook some polymer in the sun!??  NAH That's too much even for me...hmmmmm or is it :OP
Nope this is a vacation no minis allowed....no bears allowed.....besides I brought sewing with me a couple of times before and I never even looked at it..heehee...

Santa Has Come Early

I got a Christmas prezzie early!!!

My baby got me an electric fireplace!! I have been wanting one for a few years now. My computer/craft room can get really cold. Plus I think it would just add a certain something....LOL...

So we were out and about and surprise!!!! Merry Christmas!!!

Yesterday I spent the evening putting it together...which I managed to do with very few swear words...:O)...and boy does it ever give off a lot of heat. It is going to work great!!
So now I am rearranging my entire room. It is going to get a complete make over. I have so much stuff in this room it's going to be difficult figuring out what goes where...heehee...but I have visions in my head (nope not sugar plums) so with some elbow grease and time, I think it will transform into a very special room.

Thanks Santa Baby!!!!

Some pics to share

Today is my Mom's birthday!! Happy Birthday MOM!!!!

I gave my mom a new dollhouse kit for her birthday. She wants to make a Christmas house. She has been gathering and collecting Christmas do-dads for some time now. So now it is time to place those little treasures in a house. It's a big house and it will take some time but she is so happy and excited!!! I don't think I'm going to see much of her....LOL....that's okay! I know where she is!!!
In anticipation she has been working on creating the Christmas kitchen...when inspiration hits you just have to go with it!! So for the moment she has placed the kitchen in a bread box. It is very darling! I'm sure it will have tons of more Christmas do-dads once it's in the house.

So I thought I'd share some pics with you! I gave her my first gingerbread house and it looks very sweet(I must say)on top of the fridge.

I hope you enjoy the pictures!!!

It's My First

Yup! I finally did it!

I waxed my first bear nose! LOL

I was so nervous....I mean I did all this work to create a bear and now I'm going to play with hot wax!!! And it's not like once you start you can change your mind....you must continue!!
So I did and I Love it!!!! And I think once I have more practice (and a little more faith in myself) I am going to do it all the time!

I hope you all agree!
Please meet Cutie Pie!!!!

She got named that cause that is what everyone said when they saw her...LOL...I want to add a bow or a flower around her neck but I haven't gotten that far yet.

Hugs

My Weekend....so far

Okay I was hoping to post some pics of my new critters...but I haven't finished yet!! :OP
I am almost finished...I need to do the final touches on my elephant and a couple of pull toys I made.

I've had a great weekend so far....Friday night my honey and I went to an Oilers hockey game. It was a great game (they kicked some butt) we had great seats and my right ear was deaf from the cheering...heehee......it was loads of fun and I don't even like hockey...HAHAHA!!!

Saturday night went out for dinner with some friends. That's was fun, it only took us a year to try to get us all together......well worth it and look forward to another get together.

Today we are going to just relax and I'm going to go shop for a new winter jacket and then we are going to go for some pizza tonight. I'm having a craving!!!!

Happy Sunday!!!
