Ho!Ho!Ho!


Is anyone else exhausted from this holiday? I am so tired and without any energy...and it's not from the cooking or the shopping, althought the Black Friday 4 am shopping trip had me all facockta...that's a story all in itself. All i can say is that i will never do it again!

My son came home from college. it was great to see him. he looks so handsome, omg! He is in his 2nd year attending Pepperdine University in Malibu, California and we live in New York. I don't know about you, but i'm the kind of mom who waits up for all the kiddies to come in at night. Well 3 am to us is like 12 midnight to him...so for 6 days i was waiting up for him to come in everynight...or should i say every morning! Exhausting! And then the clean up from the late night munchies...as much as i was thrilled that he was home i couldn't wait for him to go back and get out of my kitchen. lol! He went back yesterday, and yes Malibu was burning again. He couldn't get to his apartment! They evacuated his area and the Pacific Coast Highway was closed. Hopefully he had school today. You think he would call.....?

While waiting up one night i did sneak in a card. It's another $1 M's stamp. I used the dashing paper from SU and tied it up with a big red velvet ribbon. Hope you like it!

What a great mom! I'm just glad I have a couple more years (they are fast approaching) before I have to do the wait up all night thing. Great card, I love cards using traditional Christams colors.

Super darling card!

So glad you had so much fun with your son! My oldest is only 10, so I have a while before mine leave the nest. He is, however, already eating me out of house and home--can't imagine what he'll be like when he's in college--Yikes!
