"HERD" It's Your Birthday!

So I forgot it was my Father-in-law's birthday.....oops! There has been so much going on lately and with Ethan's hospital admission, that put things all out of sorts. I'm finally caught up on my laundry and now on to other household things.....it's never ending....especially with 2 kids 3 and under! I decided I better get a birthday card made so I used Beate's weekend sketch http://beate.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/ and used a set that I've had for a while from My Favorite Things http://www.mftstamps.com/home/homepage.html called Punny Farm. My initial idea was to make a baby book with letters of the alphabet corresonding to the animals....which I would still love to do sometime. One of Ethan's Oncologists is going to adopt a baby this year and I wanted to make it for her. One of these days I'll get that done. The patterned paper on this card is from misc sources....meaning I don't have a clue. It was just in my stash. I did make my own background piece in the upper right that says "Moo" I thought it would be cute to do that! By the way, my father-in-law milks cows so this card is perfect!



The kids are both doing good. We're actually getting to go out tonight without them! It should be fun. Then tomorrow we're going for a bike ride with some friends coming to town from Wisconsin. They have an extra Burley trailer so we're going to put Ethan and Ava in the trailers and take off for a short ride and then a picnic lunch. I can't wait. The kids will be super excited. Ava got a helmet for her birthday and Ethan has had one for quite some time so we should be set. Hopefully I'll get some good pictures. Here's my latest take on Ava's 2 year B-day photos. I've decided that I can take the kids pictures....especially since I have a nice camera. I'd going to try to head to a friend's house this weekend and have Ava sit around her Daffodils. Enough babbling.....I need to get back to cleaning house and getting some kids down for a nap. Have a great weekend!
