Hello December

Wow, first day in December. It already feels like it is flying by. 
We had a good thanksgiving, lots of grateful, lots of family, lots of traffic. About 18 hours worth of traffic to be exact. That's a long time to be in a car with a toddler, the world's most active baby on top of that. But, we did it. We drove 3 to 6.5 hours every day of the 4 day weekend. It's good to be home, except I'm digging out underneath tons of laundry. If dh pulls one more bag out from hiding I swear. I'm on my 6th load already today.
I panicked last night, couldn't wait for cyber Monday. I had been stalking Buzz and Woody Dolls from Toy Store on Amazon for a month now. In the past week alone they went up in price $10 each, same thing with Red from Cars. It upsets me, I can't lie. I know that people are buying these things as collectors items, and I almost didn't get one for my (soon to be) 2 year old because they keep driving up the price. I think it is sad when the adults won't let the children have the dolls. I got the Woody doll at $55, three vendors already are selling it for over $150 and I suspect it won't take long for the others to realize they could raise the price too. I looked everywhere, searched every random online toy store I could find and my local Toys R Us. No one else had it, or had it cheaper. Anyway, it's done. One Buzz for his birthday and One Woody doll for Christmas. What are you stalking on this cyber Monday? Have you been waiting for the price to drop? 
Here is my entry for this weeks Cocoa Daisy Diner Scrap-off. Everybody came to play, brought some great stuff this week. The playing field will be cut from 8 to 4.
Supplies: Cosmo Cricket Chemistry Stripe Tease Patterned paper; Cosmo Cricket Chemistry Togetherness Patterned paper; plus Bazzil Black and white cardstock; Maya road Chipboard circle board and heart; Basic grey offbeat alphas; Golden red and white acrylic paint; Making Memories mini alphas; pen unknown. 
The challenge was to do circles, paint and handwriting.  I'll find out tomorrow if I made the cut. I'm waiting on pins and needles for my Studio Calico kit, I got both the stamps and I can't wait for it to arrive! Have a great day!

That is some crazy traffic!! Sounds like our usual holidays though - more time in the car than anything. :( You're so right about the adults and the toys. Cute LO - good luck! I'm hearing Cocoa Daisy all over the place this week!

Love the layout! Hope the laundry is progressing - I always get stuck on the folding and putting away part!

I know, i know the search for "the toy" is enough to drive you to drink. Glad you got Woody. OK, the ten year old boy in me is laughing at that last sentence :P
