I didn't get to participate in this week's sketch for Lauren, but she has created something sooo cute. Our task was to create something using her "free" stocking template from PTI. Lauren's stocking is adorable and I'm considering using that idea for some gifts this Christmas too. I did get to do some online shopping while out here in Philly. I got a few things from the Site to Store at Wal-Mart......what a great way to get the gifts you want and save on shipping and waiting in lines or finding things in the store.....you just go there and pick everything up when it comes in. Can't beat that.
I'm hoping to be back tomorrow with something to share. I did bring my Christmas card supplies and worked on things a little last night. I have glittered stars on my card so I sat in the Ronald McDonald House family lounge here at the hospital and added sparkles to my stars, a little to the floor too.....the room needed a little bling too! I'm anxious to get all of my cards made and in the mail.....hoping to get that accomplished this week. We'll see how that goes.
Thanks for checking in. I tried revamping the look of my website a little. It was super easy and "FREE" Just click on the link in the upper left if you want to try too. Happy Saturday everyone!

Ethan is getting ready to have his MIBG injection today. He has surgery this morning to place his catheter. A funny story about last time was that when he got back to the room, he discovered that he had a "tubie" coming out of his wiener.....in Ethan's words! Needless to say, he hated it. He's doped up on versad, a sedative, so he's not all there during this process, so that helps, but he says the darndest things. Last time he had this treatment he told the Doctors that came in that He already had his tubie in his wiener, so don't try to put one in! He's too funny. He's asleep right now and slept good all night. He's just hooked up to fluids and the "fun" will begin today. We are praying that this treatment puts him in remission again. I know some of you read my blog for the "crafty" part and others read it for both "crafty" and "family" stuff......so you get both!
Here's a picture of my husband and Ethan at the Liberty Bell on Tuesday. I think Ethan was expecting so much more......all he wanted to do after he saw it was go!
Hope to be back with some cards later in the weekend. Best case scenario is that we return sometime on Saturday......that would be so nice! Thanks for stopping by.

Now this is a site you don't see everyday! The other day Ethan and Ava wanted to ride the "donkey", so my Dad helped me get Ranger saddled up so the kids could take a "ride" around the yard. Donkey just wanted to eat the clover in the yard and the kids were wanting to get going. So, they got bored and wanted to swing. Well, what do you do, you can't hold on to the donkey and push the kids, so I tied him up wo the swingset and everyone was happy!

Update on my son.....Ethan is doing great. He has no signs or symptoms of anything so that is wonderful. He's full of energy and just a joy to have around (most days!). We have scans this week so we would appreciate all the extra prayers we can get. He looks and feels good so we are praying that the scans are clear. What a roller coaster ride. I feel like for the last few weeks we actually got to get off of the ride though and just walk around the fair, but now we're hopping back on board.....I'll let you know when we get off again!!!
Thanks for stopping by! Hopefully I'll be back this week with more creations to share!
