Finished Christmas Shopping!!

CHRISTMAS GIVE AWAY 1 POST DOWN!!

Brad (hubby) & I went to the city yesterday to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary (feels more like 10) and to finish our Christmas shopping. We have 2 sons, Luke (18) and Logan (16). Luke always has a list as long as he is, but Logan never wants anything! After telling Logan that if I didn't get something on a list he would get underwear and socks - he finally came up with a very short wish list. But we're done!! That's all that matters.


I've added some give aways from other sites to the side bar - make sure you check them out!! Also don't forget to enter my give away - a little further down.


Here is something I just finished:





It's the weekend, maybe I'll get a few other things started.
