Nighty-night

...the last thing I remember was, "Hun, where is the wrapping paper?...hun?...ZZZzzzzz." After a long day of Christmas shopping, wrapping presents, and chasing Avery around Baby Gap trying to take the pink ballet slippers from her kung-fu grip, there's nothing like coming home, turning the heater up to 97 degrees and conking out!
...bring on the visions of sugar plums...

I just love Avery's adorable chin! You are so nice to open your blog to your new adoring scrappin' fans. I'm one of them! I've set a goal to actually submit some pages to CK this year...maybe I'll try for the SOY contest while I'm at it! Wish me luck!

Dude! I totally did the same thing! And can someone please tell me how a 20-month old can have such a grip?? I mean, it is like trying to take something from a pit bull! Holy cow! Have a great day!

I met you years ago at Pebbles in my Pocket and I thought you were darling. You were always so nice and helpful. The last time I saw you was when you were shopping there and pregnant. We talked for a minute. I didn't know you, but I really liked you. I saw your CK Cover and thought, "I know that girl, I like her." Congratulations on all of your success, with your family and in the scrapbooking world. You deserve it. P.S. Avery is beautiful.

Seriously I just laughed out loud @ Avery. Just popping in to say hi! Hope you Collin and Avery have a great Christmas!

Where did you get her pj's? I have re-named that color "Peyton green", all my girls' stuff is color coordinated, and when she comes, she might look just as cute as Avery in those...

Liz,
I don't know that we have officially met but I am the one that I'm sure everyone still refers to as "Diffy". You're picture with Avery is so sweet. I've found that napping with the twins is my new favorite thing. They both love to snuggle. You're blog is amazing and you are truly talented!!!!!

Hello, Elizabeth! Congratulations on being the Scrapbooker of the Year! I was wondering if I could put a picture of the layout you did, no one in particular, on my blog because I want to write a post about how much I admire your style. I wanted to get your permission first. Thank you!

I like your blog "kisses and eyeliner" and can't wait to see more!:)
