and Dinner was no let down.
We had beef on a bun with 2 salads and dessert.

Most of the girks there are family & friends so loved one would pop in.

I need to get my room clean for my blog reveal....

Stuck?! Sketch...

well i am still not cleaning up ...
hmm Tomorrow? yes tomorrow.

i have been organizing and tiding for day s

time to play 

I found another sketch site 
this one took a bit longer 
not sure how long as I was watching House of cards as I did it, 
sometimes takes me longer as I pause for the good parts - 
Anyways i found this site
wondered there from some ones site - 
would love to figure out  who because I combine 2 sketches - 
i used the '&' so it would count for both 
A little cheater pants or brilliant?

here is the sketch 

and what I did with it 

i have been wanting to do rings for a bit - 
may try a different technique next time ...

Today - when I was supposed to be cleaning 
(after I made a different layout)
I took the kids to A&W 

He loves hamburgers!
then to the Lego Movie - 
i think i laughed more at Alex than i did the movie 
Alex loves lego men 
a good portion of his Christmas presents were Lego men ...
it was a great time .
