My Girl is Growing Up......

Happy Monday to y'all! What a busy, fun weekend I had! It was such a great time with family! Christmas Eve we made it safely to and from Wisconsin (ice/rain storm) to see my sister and her family. Christmas Day we spent it with my in-laws and Brian's Grandma. (Who is 89) The highlight was his Grandma playing Catch Phrase! She couldn't see the words on the disc, so I had to write them on a piece of scratch paper for her! What a good sport she was! Saturday, hubby and I spent the day together, shopping, having lunch, and just enjoying being together. (Which we don't do too often) Some lady in Carson's told us how cute we were and wondered if we were newlyweds.....nope......16 years........ : ) Sunday, we spent the day cleaning, organizing, and enjoying our new things. We stayed in our jammies most of the day until Cort decided she wanted to go out to eat. So we obliged and went to Chilis.

I captured this picture of Cort at my Dad's house last week during our Christmas celebration. This was her expression when Santa walked in the house. With her new haircut and "sophisticated" dress, she just seemed so grown up in this picture. I mean she is 14 and all, but I think because of her disability, I tend to view her as younger than she really is.

I used Noel's newest kit called Paper Doll. Which just went up for sale on the 26th and is already sold out!


I love the embellishments Noel includes in her kits.....they are just fabulous!!!

I hope you had a wonderful holiday with your family and friends!
Off to go clean a bit more.......I think Cort needs a bigger closet for all of her new clothes! : )

What a gorgeous layout, and what a beautiful girl you have! I know what you mean about always feeling like they're younger than they are...can't quite face the facts, can we?! My 14-year old will be 15 next month, and I'm just not quite ready for that! Oh, well...ready or not, right?!

Glad you're having such a lovely holiday with your beautiful family!

There's nothing more beautiful than a mothers love for her child, and this layout really captures it. This is a beautiful picture of Cort, I love how her eyes sparkle with joy!
