Hi, a Christmas card!

Hi friends. Guess what I've noticed. I noticed that I usually start my posts by apologizing for my absence, however brief. So, sorry. Again. I swear, I really was busy.

Let's see, mid September, we got hit with a tornado. Yes, a friggin' tornado touched down in New York. There was some crazy statistic like there have only been 5 tornadoes in NY since 1950, and 3 this year! We lost power for 3 days, and everywhere you look it was just sad. These big, huge trees uprooted off the sidewalks - falling onto fences, homes, cars. Roads blocked off. I even got into a minor car accident that night. Watching it from our window was terrifying. I thought our windows were gonna explode! Crazy.

Anyways, I am all caught up for now! I created this and it's featured on the Purple Cows blog today. Never too early for Christmas!

Oh, and I just have to tell you, I am enjoying scrapbooking more now. I find myself admiring my own work, lol! And the best part, I get to keep it! I'll post my proud LO next week. :)
