New Toys!

I got my order from Hallmark Scrapbook today! I got the Pink BIA and some rings! I can't wait to start using this one! I also got the pink wire cutters that matches, they are so cute! I bought Bags, tags, boxes and more, since it's become popular again LOL I scored that on the 29.99 sale they were having.

I also finished up Alyssa's 1 year birthday invites! I took pictures, but they all turned out so bad! I think I need to start saving for a new camera! I'll show it anyway, the inside has a picture of her and says "come celebrate with us"

Little Animal

Here is a LO I did a couple weekends ago, I didn't get a chance to post it yet. It's pretty plain, but I used my new animal cracker chipboard set for the "little animal" and the flurish. I don't know if you can see it, but on his but there is a monkey so I thought it fit well.

I make Alyssa's 1st birthday invations today and got some pictures, but Devin got away with my camera and I have no clue where it is right now! I'll post pictures when I find it!

It's been a while

Hi all, it's been a while since I've had time to post, I've had to switch my work shift for a few weeks because of a medical reason for the person that works the day shift. She's back now so hopefully I'll be updating more often!

We had a great valentine's date! We went to Applebees for dinner, we got right in, no waiting! I had Orange chicken and Shane had a steak, then off to our play, it was sooo funny! I love going there. The play was called "Wonder of the World"

The next day Jade had bowling with the cub scouts, we live right next to the bowling alley so we just walked over, it was his first time bowling ever and he had a blast! He got 53 on his first game and 78 on his second.

After bowling, we headed up to Grampa Jim's to meet DH, DS, and DD and the rest of the family for "Gift Day" the kids all played for a couple hours and we headed home.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Just wanted to wish everyone a Very Happy Valentine's Day!

Update on the kids, Jade and Devin seem to be doing MUCH better, Alyssa had a fever all night even on Motrin, she started feeling a little better by morning but is still very tired and not quite herself yet. Hopefully by tomorrow she'll be feeling better.

3 sick kids And Alyssa's 11 Months old!

Sorry I have not posted much in the last few days, all 3 of my kids are not feeling well, I kept Jade home from School on Monday, Tuesday was a snow day and Wednesday I ended up getting a call to come get him early, that night I brought him into Urgent Care to make sure he didn't have Strep since it has been going around in his school/class, that came back negative which was nice to know. Thursday Devin woke up with a fever and a caugh, I was able to get him into the clinic for a quick check up, I was worried he had an ear infection since earlier in the day I seen some yellow-greenish stuff come out of one of his ears, they looked good though. Today Friday, Alyssa woke up with a caugh and a fever. Yay, 3 sick kids, so needless to say, I haven't gotten too much done with all of them being crabby! Oh well, it was an excuse for me to go out and buy us all icecream!

I hope everyone else is feeling well!

Tomorrow night, Valentine/Date night with hubby, no matter what! Grampa is coming over to watch the kids!

Here is a pic of Jade I took at Urgent Care

Alyssa turned 11 Months old on the 6th, she's still my little peanut! I'm not sure how much she weighs right now, but she still fits in 6-9 month cloths! I'm hoping by summer months she'll be in 12 months because that's what size summer cloths I've been buying for her! She still mostly army crawls, but she's been finally starting to actually crawl, I don't even think she relizes she's doing it though! She started picking herself up on furnature, just the smaller things like her leap frog table and her excersauser, she's so short that the couch is too high for her to grab and pull up on! Oh and she still doesn't have any teeth either!

Some Jade LO's

It's been a while since I've posted any layouts of Jade so here are a few that I did I think last week. One of them is pictures from a couple years ago at the Monster Truck show, the other one is a trip "home" and we always make time to meet some friends at Mc Donalds.

Another Alyssa LO and Order info!

Here is another LO of my sweet baby girl Alyssa, I think these were her 8 month pictures. I didn't use any cricut on it yet, not sure if I want to leave it untitled or not, I got the chipboard flowers on clearance at Target. The LO design came from my Idea deck. Speaking of that, DH bought me the 2nd Idea deck for Valentine's Day! What a sweetie!

I just ordered a bunch of new DCWV stacks from, I got The Green Stack, Green chipboard shapes, Animal Crackers, Animal cracker chipboard, Whimsy, Latte, Citrus, All About Boys, Safari-Chic, Garden Party, Nana's Kitchen, Blossom & Butterflies, Baby girl nursery, and baby boy nursery! I think I'm set for paper now for some time! I was planning on getting all of these in the twin cities in April, but J's has a free shipping code, and the stacks were all on sale so I couldn't wait!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Birthday Cake

Well, I've finally got 1 page done for Devin's 2nd birthday that was back in November! I'm hoping to get started on the next ones this weekend. This was his birthday cake and us singing to him. He had a Mickey Mouse Birthday. I believe this sketch was one of Okie's sketch challenges too.
