OK…first of all…my best friend, Janet, is now blogging!  Yay!  This should be fun.  I would like all of you guys to go and welcome her to the blogosphere and show her some love!  Then print out the recipe for her biscotti…’cause girls…you have NEVER had anything so good!   She is now a permanent spot on my blogroll.  So go to her blog: Musings from the Minivan!

OK…we were having a “craft night” the other night and the girls were stamping.  The wanted to play with “the Christmas trees”, (“Playful Christmas” from Kitchen Sink), so I was helping Sophie (7)  who made the cutest little card:

I then lined up all of the sentiments on my block and stamped them.  Then placed the Ice Cream Cone.
