Boots.....May the Simple Joys of Life be Yours!

NEVERMIND my STAMPO!!!! (Get it, typo, stampo). My husband pointed out I forgot E"t"han's t. Oh well, my brother tells me I'm a horrible speller anyway.....guess he is right. I'll get it fixed....nothing a few circle punches and a little adhesive can't fix!!!

So we are back from day 2 of Ethan's radiation! We got to leave an hour later today....5:00 am! That extra hour of sleep was wonderful :-) We got home today around 1:30 pm. I was blog hopping after the kids "finally" fell asleep and thought I would try a challenge to use one of my "new", but old to Papertrey Ink, Green Thumb stamp set. Check out one of my favorite blogs: Thinking Inking http://debbiedesigns.typepad.com/muse_and_amuse/ This is what I submitted using my Green Thumb stamp set.

The message says it all. Our 3 1/2 year old son, Ethan is in remission from his cancer that was found last July. Ethan is still receiving treatments, but how wonderful it is to enjoy each day for what it is. I used some pictures of Ethan playing outside with his boots. He loves wearing boots and collecting "walking" sticks! Isn't he just adorable!!!

Alicia -- I love reading your posts. They just make me feel good to know that someone out there is making the most of every day and appreciating what too often we take for granted. Plus, you make time to stamp & scrap -- life is good, isn't it? And your children are ADORABLE!!!! Love this sweet page, and Ethan and your family stays on my prayer list. : )
