A Quiet Tuesday Evening..

So I should be working right now.  In a perfect world, I would be starting another client and finishing up two that I got a few days ago.  But I am tired, and Christmas break seems to have already started for me tonight.  For at least tonight.  Tomorrow is always a new day!  Right?

I have a darling new client that I got today.  She loves everything vintage and charming, and is Mormon.  I love her already.  I have found myself lost in the pages of beautiful inspirational blogs she has sent me--one in particular, The Daybook.  I happened to like this blog.  A LOT!  I have seriously been captivated for about an hour now.  What a breath of fresh air.  She is a great writer and talented designer.  I want her wittiness, charm and clothes, now.  *Sigh.

Not a whole lot else is going on in the Altom household.  The Mr. is in watching  a BYU game and Livie is sleeping like a little angel in her bed.  What a little sweetie I have.  Tonight we went to dinner with Chris and Kimmie and she giggled and laughed until she tuckered herself right out.  She is turning into a very social, giggly little girl.  Her new tricks involve twirling and singing--can't get any cuter than that, if you ask me.

Tomorrow I am going to work hard on getting my presents wrapped, start a new client, and finish my poem books and deliver them.  I am so thrilled with the poems my students wrote.  I would love to post them on this blog for you all to read--you would be just as touched as I was while reading them.  It's amazing what nine to 18 year olds can think of and write.  I will be delivering them to Utah Valley Regional Medical Center for the children in the Cancer Unit.  What a special gift for them to receive days before Christmas.

Hope you are all having a wonderful week and aren't as last minute as me.  Merry Christmas!


What We've Been Up To..

So we haven't blogged in a very long time.  So sorry we have neglected you, poor blog.  I have been so busy with work and I keep thinking we don't really have a lot going on, but as I thought about it more, I realized that a lot has been going on since I posted last.

Our little baby girl is quickly becoming a very beautiful little girl.  She is growing up so fast, losing her baby fat, and even getting long, wavy hair.  Not to mention all those teeth she has, now.  She has 12 teeth--quite the mouthful!  *I need to get Craig to upload some pictures from our camera from Liv's Birthday and more recent events.

Craig is finishing up his last week of school for the semester!  We are both so excited to have one more semester down with only one more to go at LDSBC!  I'm sure Craig is so relieved that he will be attending a school just down the street next fall.  Thank Heaven!

Like I said, I am keeping very busy with school, custom blog design, being a mom, and finishing up final preparations for Christmas.    I have been working like crazy trying to finish up twelve blogging clients this month (I thought this goal was much more attainable at the beginning of the month.  I hope I can make it).  This is the main reason why I don't blog a lot.  Blogging on my personal blog doesn't seem very fun after a long day of chasing Olivia and doing custom blog work.  I decided to take a break today, though, and give our blog a face lift.  I had been wanting to for weeks..today seemed like a good day.

I hope to post soon about some other going's about in our lives.  I have a fun project I am finishing up with my students for Christmas that I want to share.   

Hope you are all doing well and having a wonderful Holiday Season!
