Happy Birthday!

Hello!  Today is my birthday!  I wondered if I should blog on my birthday or not but I have been quite creative lately that I may as well share it!  Ariel had school today so Carter and I enjoyed some time at home.  I hate to say it but it's not that bad when she's gone, Carter plays with me a lot and enjoys sitting my lap with me reading stories or just cuddling!  Ariel had her Christmas concert tonight at school so that was our evening! She was so sweet singing 2 songs with her class!  Chad and I are going to try to fit in a date sometime soon to celebrate, between all the Christmas activities!

With it being my birthday I figure I should share a birthday card I made. Trying to work on my stash of birthdays! 

I embossed the blooming meadow stamp on some pp by Cosmo Cricket, and distressed the edges with vintage photo ink.  The twine is from the twinery and I thought the bright button added!  The sentiment is by PTI.

As for my December daily.  I have been doing really well with taking the photos but that's it!  I know I will catch up!  I can totally see the use of a cricket or a silhouette right now...hmmm... Or even some alphabet stamps!

Here's some photos from the concert, get used to this pretty dress of Ariel's.  There is a lot of things she will be wearing it to, but that's good, it's such a pretty dress (oh and now that I have figured out how easy it is to curl Ariel's hair, I may be doing it all the time!)

On stage singing.

Trying to get a photo of Carter looking when there's cake just doesn't happen!  Hmm Tiramisu! 

Blowing the candles is the best part!

Hope your week is great!  Thank you for reading!
