happy 17th birthday grace!!!

i can't believe how the years have flown by and today is your 17th birthday grace......amazing! it's been a seriously rough year in every way imaginable for the entire family but you have had to some how struggle through the reality of having both your brothers diagnosed with autism and your sister in the process of a diagnosis for autism as well as dealing with her breakdown and depression. yup it's been tough alright but we have survived and you have managed to get through as well. i know things won't be any easier as each day passes can they be with all we deal with but i pray and hope that despite the journey already walked and the journey ahead you will always know that dad and i love you incredibly so and we will always be here for you. we will take the journey with you one step at a time and manage the bumps and dives together. have a fantastic and happy 17th birthday grace and may all your dreams and wishes come true. all our love and hugs xoxo

latest emd sneak peek!

how could i resist giving all you edeline marta design fans a sneak peek of what's coming soon early january 2010 by edeline herself. it's stunning, it's full of gorgeous digital scrapbooking goodies, the elements are delish, the papers amazing and i absolutely lurve....yep lurve the colour scheme.....can you tell i'm excited??? anyhoo you'll have to wait till it's release early january and till then i'm happy for ya all to "drool" a little because seriously this kit is stunning. ok that'll do for this post...short and sweet and mind you 2 in one not too bad really but before i sign off for the evening..................

i hope you are all enjoying the christmas season....i know here in our household things are incredibly difficult for us financially for our family with all the extra medical expenses we have had to deal with it's been pretty tough but i plan to make christmas day itself very special indeed and do the best i can in making that happen with yummy food and spending time with tim and the kids although on our own this year we will celebrate quietly and peacefully. christmas after all is not solely about santa and presents, but spending time with loved ones and about the celebration of jesus christ's birth and the true sense of what that really means to the world. whether you're a believer or not i truly hope and pray your christmas is absolutely wonderful. hugs chris xoxo

latest emd lo's!

wow where has the year gone? it's already almost christmas and time is flying by every day at a speed so quick i can't keep! anyhoo just a quick is still pretty busy for us but thankfully this week....the week of my dd grace's birthday and christmas i only have one appointment which has now been rescheduled for thursday instead of today. like everyone else i have been flat out with the christmas season and all that goes hand in hand with that. unfortunately my christmas card list is non existent this year and i apologise to family and friends as i won't be sending any. it's got to much and far too late to do anything so once again i'm sorry you won't be receiving a card from the turnbull household this year.

ok enough of that as it's time to upload my latest emd ct lo's for ya all to see. enjoy!!!!

sneak peek!!!

.................check out what's coming soon from the ever talented edeline of edeline marta designs! yes i have been fortunate enough to scrap with this gorgeous mini kit but that's all i am going to say so i don't give to much'll have to wait till it's release! oh and you can find her designs here @ scrapartist and here in her own store...just in case you weren't sure where her goodies were sold!

i have to say that i am really enjoying edeline's designs, she is incredibly talented and i am incredibly fussy when it comes to what and who's designs i create with when it comes to my digital scrapbooking and i simply can't get enough of her goodies. i'm pretty sure i do more then is required every month as part of my CT requirements but that's simply because i just love the designs she brings out and can't seem to wait till the next kit is out and ready to scrap with......and the beauty of being part of her CT is i get to scrap with it prior to it's release.....gotta luv that!

we are officially on holidays here now....all the teenaliens are now finished with schooling for the year and with christmas almost upon us life sure is busy. but you know what????.............. i'm going to leave posting about all the recent "goings on" for another blog post update. for tonight it's just a quick one and till then....take care, enjoy the holiday and christmas season and remember the true meaning of christmas!
hugs from me xoxo
