*sniffle, sniffle, cough, cough*

URGHH! I hate being sick! Bob started off with a sniffle a couple days ago and it hit me Sunday night. I, on the other hand, have a nasty chest cold and one heck of a raspy voice, along with a lovely fever, aches and chills. Again, I say...I really dispise being sick.

On a happier note, only 2 days until we go home for the holidays! (YIPEE!) I'm so excited. My mom and I do "mega-shopping" when I go home. In other words, we're great procrastinators and we wait until the last minute before we run around like crazy for a few days! *grins* It's a great time.

I have been creating though. In my family, we have a tradition of getting a "special ornament" every year to hang on the tree. My mom started it with me and my brother when I was around 8 or 9 and we still do it today. I got the idea to create a mini-book documenting some of these ornaments and their history. (I'm not done only half way, but I'm posting pictures none the less.) Hope everyone is having a happy holiday season thus far.

OOOOOOOOH! PHEWY! On the raspy voice and being sick! I sure hope you feel better soon! Especially, for the big trip!

I love how your book is turning out! Only problem is that I want to see bigger pictures of it! How come it won't let us click on the pictures to make them larger?

I can't wait to see the rest!

Yucky-yuck. You've got a busy week (or so) coming up - I hope you feel better soon!

OMGosh, I love your ornament book! What a fantastic way to preserve the stories behind your ornaments - oh, I may have to steal/borrow this one! ;)
