Welcome Little One! and my Little M&M

My friend, Jen, had her new little baby boy today around 9:30 this morning. I'm a little jealous because it sounds like she had him pretty quickly. My little Ethan....I was in labor for over 18 hours! That was after my husband discovered that the IV drip from my epideral had been dripping on the floor after they put it in! That made for a very fun afternoon!!!

Here is what I came up with. This is an old SU set called Welcome Little One. Isn't the baby just precious. The paper was from my stash and the ribbon is from PTI. I absolutely love this gingham ribbon that they are carrying. I drug out my nestabilities to cut out my main image. It seems like I go in spurts with that and use it a lot and then put it away for a while. I'm really loving this new Martha Stewart lace edge punch.

We had a very full day here at home. I did all the usual stuff and really tried hard to get all of my Christmas decorations put away. I managed to get "almost" everything. The trees are still sitting waiting to go to the basement, but I finally have my house back. After Christmas it always feels so much bigger when I get the decorations put away! I'm off to work tomorrow and Friday. I usually work on Mondays and Tuesdays, but that didn't work out this week. Ethan is pretty bummed that he can't go to school tomorrow. He was going to go, but there is so much flu going around that we decided to keep him home.

Hope all of you have a good Thursday and Friday....I'll be back on Saturday with Lauren's sketch! If this picture doesn't make you laugh....isn't this too cute. Ava came downstairs with this and "only" this on a couple nights ago. She went to the corner where the Christmas tree was with her kitty slippers and was eating Valentine Sweetarts! She's too funny!

That picture of Ava is tooo cute!!!! Kids do the darndest things that is for sure. I will have to tell you some time about the time I dropped Willow off at Church and when I picked her up her Sunday School Teacher pulled me aside and asked me if I knew she did not have any underware on under her dress with no tights!!!! OH MY Word the horrors, but she was supposed to have underware on!!!! Funny story!!!!

I left you a couple of awards over at my blog tonight. I love totally love this stamp set!!! It is still one of my favorites to use for Baby cards!!! I have used it for Laurens sketch before!!!

Have a Great Day at Work!!!!

OMG...Ava is too funny :O) Such a girly girl...I LOVE that! The card you made for your friend is so sweet! I love that it's simply blue and white, with the gingham ribbon and the plaid background...and the lace scalloped borders are a perfect touch. I'm sure she'll love it.

Your new blog layout is adorable by the way! I need to find one that fits with my new layout...

Have a great weekend, Alicia!
