Babies, Babies Everywhere!!

Seems like there's another round of babies being birthed! My cousin in California, Marcelo, called me last fall (I SWEAR it feels like a week ago!!) to say that he and his wife are expecting TWINS!!! I honestly had to laugh and laugh. Poor guy, doesn't know what's going to hit him!

I got an update last week and she's at 32 weeks and both babies are doing GREAT and weighing in at 5 lbs each. Can I feel any more sorry for her? I don't think so! One of my pet sitting clients also has a daughter that is expecting TWINS! Wow, what is in the water?! I'm excited for both couples and I sure wish I lived closer to my cousin so I could help out.

Here are some things I made for a baby shower. One main Diaper Cake and 2 smaller ones that were table decorations.

I love making these things and I'm getting pretty quick too. Which makes it REALLY nice!

Here are a couple of gifts I donated as door prizes. SO sorry for the picture being sideways, but it's not like that in the folder I imported it from. I don't know how to get it turned. So if you injure your neck, I am apologize in advance. The first time is a checkbook cover, the second is a pad of paper and the third is a post it note holder. So stinking cute!

Can You Believe It?

My Baby Girl is SEVEN today!! Wow, how time flies. Unfortunately, after all the fun at Grandma's on Sunday she started complaining (well crying and whining if you want the TRUTH, the whole truth & nothin' but the truth!) on the way home that her ear hurt. She proceeded to wake up at 12:45am, 3:30am, 5:30am and then getting up at 6:30am. All the while crying about her ear. I gave her tylenol, but didn't know what to do for it otherwise.

Needless to say, we headed to the doctor yesterday a.m. & she has TWO ear infections in ONE ear! That's a first for us. She's got a middle and outer ear infection. The outer one is also known as swimmers ear. They are two separate infections sitting next to each other. And apparently the swimmers ear can be VERY painful! My poor baby girl!

She's on the mend though and is looking forward to today! We'll be picking up a friend to spend the day with us & stay the night. Can't wait. It should be a lot of fun and involve a LOT of bouncing. I hope to have pictures for you. hee hee.

Okay, we've got a full day ahead and I still need to get my flower replacements replaced before we leave. Have a GREAT day and

Happy Birthday to my Lgirl! Sunshine of my Heart!

Such a pleaser and I'm so blessed to have her in my life!

Where did May go?

Anyone? Anyone? Bueller, Bueller? lol. I honestly don't know where it went! I guess I was consumed with end of school days, Scrap Club and PMS night. Oh and we cannot forget Memorial Day. Then BAM it's June!

We spent Memorial Day at Grandma's & Papaw's. It was a lot of fun. The kiddos got to go hiking through the creek with Grandma, drive tractors AND watch Papaw & daddy cut down some trees. Me? Well, I marinated the steaks and made up one of the desserts. I really enjoy cooking AND watching me some cable TV! Had to watch a bit of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, and then figured out I had seen the episodes & switched to Cake Boss. Love that show. Those cakes are unbelievable!

Check out these fox boxes I made. Are they not THE cutest? Kimberly Morris (she's AWESOME!!) gave me the directions for the original one and then my upline, Tracy, and I souped it up a bit. We stamped with the Sanded Background Stamp and roughed up the edges w/the edger. I thought up the girl all by myself. Isn't she a cutie-patootie? Look at the way that boy is staring, he should be ashamed! :)
