It's all about the Football!

So, this year we celebrated Christmas with my girlfriends Susan & Amy and my favorite nephew Colin.  He was playing in an indoor soccer league, but when I asked Amy what he could use for Christmas (other than the super cute Blue & Purple little people slippers and neat personalized pillowcases), she said a football.  My hubby was happy to get the little guy a football, hoping maybe he can play with Andy, Colin's dad, Colin and Uncle Glen (maybe Uncle Kris too), even though the rule in our house is unless you've got a multi-million dollar contract, you shouldn't be playin' football (I remember the months with his broken leg, blood clots, therapy, hospital stays, etc.).  Anyway, we got Colin a football.  And like they say, if it ain't in the scrapbook, it didn't happen.  It was so cute, he was so excited about the football.  And I love the chocolate on his face from dessert.  I can't wait until the spring when the little man can get out and toss around the pig skin.  That'll be some fun scrapbook pages!
This is also Sketch #9 for the Scrap-Friendzy Sketch-A-Thon that will be posted on Saturday.  The sketch was courtsey of Julie Bonner, you can check out her great scrappy blog here.  She does some AMAZING work.  You can check out the actual sketch on Scrap-Friendzy on Saturday morning - it'll be in the Sketch-A-Thon forum under Sketch #9.

We're dealing with 6" of snow that arrived last night and early this morning.
WOO HOO!  I'll be sure to take a photo - it is pretty but not very pretty driving home in. 
Thanks again as always for stopping by.  I always enjoy hearing from everyone.  I hope you're all having a wonderful new year so far - hard to believe we're 8 days into 2010.
Happy Craftin'!
