Peekaboo Xmas Boy

Good morning and welcome to my blog.  The school holiday break has ended and the boys are now back at school for the last term of the year.  My eldest tells me he only has 4 weeks at school and then he's finished for the year as he'll be on study leave when his exams start in November.  How wonderful to be at school again and always on holiday or breaks or leave weekends.  
This past week I've had a few issues with Blogger, all of my links in my sidebar are missing, I'm not the only person it's happening too, but it is annoying and they say they will return shortly I want to know how long is shortly is it as long as a piece of string? Is this happening to you and have you had problems with Blogger?  All my photo's were missing the other morning but they were back in 24 hours.

This week we have a new sketch but firstly I would like to congratulate our winner from last week.  This week is our
100th Sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and Anne has a little giveaway for our lucky winner.

I love the brown and red colors together. It's really pretty, especially for a Christmas card. I haven't lost anything on my blog but Blogger has been running REEEEEEALLY slowly (tear your hair out slow!!) I hope they solve whatever they have going on soon. My boys have four days off for Fall break next week. I don't think that we have big plans so a bit of a lie-in will be nice.

Hope your week is fabulous!
