Ahoy Mateys!


As promised, I took a picture of Ethan's pirate party invitation! I just love it and I got to play a little too while the kids are napping......they are still asleep so maybe after I post I can scrapbook a cowboy page too! I have the cutest picture of Ethan with his red cowboy hat at the hospital the day that he got his head shaved back in July of last year! It was a very sad day for Mommy so Daddy shaved his head while I was in the shower and "surprised" me when I got back to find my baby without any hair.....I soon realized that hair isn't that important and it will grow back!

I made a cowboy card for Beate's weekend sketch today! http://beate.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/ I love the paisley embossing template! I can't wait to use this on my scrapbook page.....too bad the cuttlebug didn't come in a 12x12 size.....hopefully Provo Craft reads my blog daily so they can get to work on that!


I'm looking forward to the weekend. I've had a rough week trying to get back into a routine. The kids have been fighting constantly like sibblings do! I'm looking forward to Dave being home to help referee. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! Ethan's day 100 is June 1st! Oh won't that be a glorious day. 100 days of isolation.....it puts a true test to the words patience and sanity!
