I've been enjoying the sneek peeks from CHA. Looks like some more fun stuff this year! Yesterday I took Ethan to a movie for something fun to do. I took him to see Paul Blart, Mall Cop. I guess this is rated PG and looked pretty funny on the previews, but he got scared half way through so we left! Oh well, he really enjoyed the popcorn! I brought in some sodas for Ethan and me to have and I put his in my purse when we left half way through, not knowing what was in store with that. While walking down the mall, Ethan was trying to tell me something, but I couldn't hear him. I bent down and it sounded like he was peeing, well, he wasn't, but he thought I was peeing! To our amazement, neither of us were peeing, but the rootbeer cap wasn't all the way on and so I poured it all over the inside of my purse and onto the mall floor! What a mess! I cleaned up what I could and let someone know about our mess!
Ethan got some good deals on some button shirts as he calls them. He likes to wear button up collared shirts, except he is in the phase right now where he always wants to dress like Daddy! Pretty funny huh?? Well, I had 3 shirts picked out for him and asked Ethan if he liked them, he would then look at his Daddy and say "Daddy, do you have a shirt like that?" If Daddy said yes, then Ethan liked the shirt, if he said no then we didn't get it! How long is this phase going to last?? Ava didn't get left out. She got some cute things too and on sale! I got her 3 shirts at Baby Gap for under $15! My friend Heidi will be so proud!
I better get off of this thing and get a few more zzzz's. We have to be back at the hospital around 9:00 or so. We are praying that all goes well with Ethan's new meds tomorrow. I'm definitely ready to be home and Ethan is too. We miss our little Chicky. Ava and Ethan have a cold and are taking antibiotics, so Ava is a little more clingy than usual. She didn't like it when I told her on the phone that we weren't coming home last night. She'll be glad to see us tomorrow.
Hopefully I'll be back later in the week with a sample or two to share. I have the stuff cut to make the Birthday card holder by Lauren Meader. I used pink pirouette, baja breeze, and close to cocoa for my colors. I really like that combo together! Back to get some zzzzz's.....thanks for stopping by!

I don't have any cards or scrapbook pages to share. I do have a few pages that I haven't taken any pictures of yet....just haven't had time this week. I did get to stop off at Michaels on the way home this evening and got a new stamp set....it's so cute. I can't wait to play with it. I'm sure I'll be stamping some tomorrow....it definitely helps to keep my mind off of things.
I'll be back on Satuday morning with Lauren's sketch. What do you think of me making scrapbook pages or are you wanting to see more cards? Thanks for stopping by!

Here's my scrapbook page for Lauren's sketch. Now this was very fun to make. I had cut all of these hearts out with my pazzles a few days ago and planned on using them on another scrapbook page, but I took a picture yesterday that I just loved and wanted to scrapbook it right away. The background paper is called Queen of Hearts by Splendid. I LOVE it! I used Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, and Baja Breeze cardstock from SU. I've found that the Ocean Tides ribbon from PTI matches pretty closely with the Baja Breeze so I've been using that a lot lately. The lace is from Wal-Mart. There are my kiddos yesterday! I put pony tails in Ava's hair for the first time and she loved them. She looks pretty funny though when she takes them out! Hope all of you have a great weekend. We're off for scans next week on Wed/Thursday so we could use some extra prayers for our son! Thanks for stopping by!

Today has been very busy on the medical front. We left around 7:00 to get labs, found out around 9:00 that Ethan needed platelets and then headed on our 2 1/2 hour trip to the hospital for a transfusion. We got home a little after 5:00, headed to my nephew's 7th grade basketball game and then came home to get the horse and burrow in the barn for the next few days as we are expecting very cold weather. We are finally in now and getting ready to head up for bed. There's always something going on here at our house and today was definitely no exception. If I have the energy, I'm going to come back down and work on PTI's Guest Stamper challenge. I've had my little valentine treat made for a week now, but haven't gotten it totally finished! I need just a few more hours in the day and a few less trips to the hospital.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week!

My Mom played along this week and actually created the card for this weeks sketch. I asked Lauren about trying out scrapbooking with her sketches, so that is what I did. Here are 2 Valentine day ideas with Lauren's sketch. It's so easy to take a card sketch and use it for a scrapbook page. Ava was so funny last night when I was making this. She was sitting right next to me of course and she got all upset when she found out that I had "broke her". I used my nestabilities on her picture and she thought I broke her, it was really funny. Mom's card uses SU's stamp set, So Many Scallops and I didn't end up stamping at all. I printed my title from Word and added a little glitter. I made my own background paper with the small heart punch from PTI. I added glitter to my hearts for some bling!
Hope all of you are getting a good start to your weekend. We don't have much planned. Hopefully we'll be home all of this weekend and next week, that would be so nice for a change. We did finally find out a schedule for Ethan's upcoming scans, so that is nice to have "somewhat" of a plan. The kids are doing great. They even went upstairs by themselves last night for a half hour and played with a puzzle and they didn't come down screaming or crying at us....now that is amazing.
Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check out the other gal's cards too.

We had so much fun that day building a snowman. We tried to make one this year, but the snow wouldn't pack, so we went sled riding instead. That was so much fun, I even got to join in. Hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday. We have a busy day of getting our house back in order from the holidays. I have laundry to do that probably will only take an hour or so, but it is just the part in getting in gear and getting it done. Then we probably should attempt to take down the tree. I thought we were heading to Philadelphia this week so I had decided to leave it up, but since we're not, I think I'll try getting at least the big tree down today. Well, Ava is here crying.....who knows why, so I better run! Thanks for stopping by!
