Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope fun was had by all.
This was our first Christmas and New Years without family. Since we were just in Alberta in October we didn't feel like going back so soon. As much as I missed my family it was nice to have a quiet Christmas. The girls were both sick so we enjoyed laying low.
We were supposed to start kitchen reno's but the stinky Home Depot messed up our order and we didn't get our flooring until this morning. It was only 3 weeks late. Can't really do reno's with flooring. Anyways, we decided to make the most of it and go away for a couple of days. We went to a wonderful spa resort: Tigh-Na-Mara ( It was so lovely. We had a log cabin with all amenities there were restaurants for when I didn't feel like cooking. I even got to spend a few hours at the spa while hubby took care of the kids. He even got the favor returned. I highly recommend this place.

I have to say I am looking forward to getting back onto the grove of things. I am signed up for a 14 hour crop in February and I signed up for a few classes as well as committed to accomplishing some layouts this year. I hope these kitchen reno's don't interfere : $
I did attempt Tim Holtz's 12 tags of Christmas. Unfortunately I only manage to get 7 done since I didn't get my supplies in time. Here's a picture of the 7 that I did finish.

Anyways, I wish everyone the very best for the new year. Wow! Can you believe it's 2010? Any good resolutions out there? I have a couple... To meditate more often, to get fit (get into pre-pregnancy clothes), to get more scrapbooking in, and to be the best mom that I can be.
