I had to share this card. I LOVE it! I made it the other day with my Serendipity Kit! I put the green ink on the stamp with my fingers and it gave it a watercolor look! I then punched a square out of the transparency sheet and stuck the button on top! I LOVE IT!
Okay gotta run!
I just had to share!

My new favorite....

My new favorite song is (You want to) Make a Memory by Bon Jovi! LOVE it!!! Here's the link if you want to listen! Click on Watch Video! The song takes a second to pick up, but gosh I LOVE it!!!

I got so much done this weekend!!! All thanks to my MIL! I finished up on my Guest Design Team layouts for Serendipity Scrapbooks and my DT layouts for Addicted Scrappers! I posted one of the layouts above! It's a photo of Brodey and my SIL, Madyson. It's from the Serendipity Scrapbooks Kit!

No plans for tomorrow. Eric will probably work. They have patients scheduled and he says if it rains he might as well go in! They will just take another day off instead so it's fine with me!

I just had to share this photo of Brodey I took yesterday! I haven't scrapped it yet! I can't come up with a title! MIL was messing with his hair and being silly and I wanted to take a photo. I took the toothbrush away from him and this was the face I got! LOL Priceless!

Okay I better run! MIL is leaving today and I have to take advantage of my free time!:)

Just a quick one!

Had to pop in and put these layouts up. They are from the June Kit at One Page at a Time! Totally different colors than I'm used to and I love them!
I have to share the journaling on the Everyday Moments one.
Journaling:: We don’t capture everyday moments as often as we should. I know I don’t. I think we tend to get caught up in the need to take the “perfect” photo. Years from now are our descendents going to look back and learn anything from those perfectly posed shots? Will they learn what our life was like now? Will they get a glimpse into our everyday? I hope that my children and grandchildren will. I am going to make an effort to try not to take only perfectly posed shots. I will try to take photos that are of the everyday moments. Moments that will be forgotten too quickly. Moments like Brodey pulling every single scrapbook magazine off of my shelves and enjoying it. Moments like Brodey eating Cheerios off of the coffee table while he watches the Backyardigans. Moments like us falling to sleep together in the recliner. Those are the moments I want to remember and the memories I hope I won’t forget. How lucky I am to be able to spend and preserve those everyday moments with you. December 2006
Thought it was sweet!
Off to do more reunion planning! If you are from my 1997 class, visit our website at!
Gotta go!


Graduation season is almost over! I am so glad! LOL
My sister graduated Saturday, but she goes to school another two weeks to make up for snow days. My cousins graduate Thursday night and my brother-in-law's awesome girlfriend graduates Tuesday night. AH!

Everything is peachy here! I'm busy and that's no fun! That means no scrappin' time for little ole me! Don't you feel sorry! Bwahahaha!!!

OH AWESOME news! I had THREE layouts picked up for the October 2007 issue of Memory Makers magazine! YEAH!!! This the first time I've been in Memory Makers and I'm so excited! I shipped the layouts off today! That always makes me nervous, but the peeps at the UPS store always do a good job. Knock on wood....

My high school reunion is a month away! Yikes! Make a girl feel old why don't ya?!? We are going to have a blast!! I'm planning a picnic, viewing of our slideshow, and a good old fashioned party that night! I can't wait!!!!!

Well I know this is a short post, but I gotta go! I'll be on more now since the season is wrapping up! Have an awesome Tuesday! Hehe!

All's well that ends well

Well Brodey is catheter free!!! YEAH! The doc said he looks awesome! I'm so glad Eric went with me because there is no way I could have held him down by myself! He is getting too strong! It seems to feel much better to him now that it's out. YEAH! I'm so very glad it's over and everything turned out great!!

Gosh we have had so much rain the last few days! It has made everything so beautiful and green, though!!

Brodey and I went to the zoo today! So glad he's better and we can start going again! LOVE it there!! All the school kids were there today! Brodey had fun saying hi to everyone! Hehe! Also all the Canadian geese's babies were all over the place! SO cute! I guess that's why they have been such pain in the butts every time we have been! ;)

Well I just had to put up the photo above! My handsome man! Men like flowers too!

Love this boy

I love this boy. This boy right here ^. He is such a little trooper. The dressing from his surgery came off today. I felt so bad. The catheter is still in, but the dressing slipped off after his bath today. He just cries when I put his diaper on. I can't imagine how it must feel. I have to admit we giggle just a little bit when he walks around. He walks like he's been riding a horse for the last week. Hehe.

He goes in tomorrow morning to get the catheter removed. I have a feeling that's going to help with the pain. It'll actually be able to lay against his body in his diaper. Eric is going with me. Thank goodness. Not sure I could handle that by myself.

The poor boy has been sleeping practically all day long. He needs it. I'll be happier when everything gets back to normal! I can't get anything done! He won't sleep unless he's on the Boppy or in bed with me. So I'll be happy when I'm free! ;)

Well he's ready for bed so I guess I'll go for now!

No fun!

Surgery is no fun! Escpecially when it's your child! That was the scariest moment of my life. By far.
Okay first I need to explain what he was having surgery for. WARNING this will be graphic, so just skip down if you have a weak stomach! ;)
Tuesday Brodey had hypospadia surgery. Brodey's urethra(peepee tube) didn't close completely when I was pregnant with him. So instead of peepeeing out of the hole in the tip of his penis, he would peepee out of a small hole at the base of his penis. The surgery was to build him a new urethra out of his foreskin tissue.

The surgery was supposed to last 4-5 hours and there was a slight chance he would have to come back for a second surgery if they could not fix it properly. We went in at 8:30 and he got to go in earlier because the surgery before him was canceled.

LUCKILY my best friend, Natalie, is an RN there. She was there with us most of the time which made it so much better! Eric got to go back with him when they gave him the gas to put him to sleep. I was crying at this point and there was no way I could do it! Eric came back and he said it was so hard to hold him while he went to sleep. Eric was a nervous wreck so he went to work while I stayed at the hospital with my MIL. My mom and grandmother went to my house to clean while I stayed there. (Yes I do have awesome relatives! Haha!) Then nurse called every hour to tell me how it was going, but I was still a nervous wreck. It is the worst feeling to have no control.

The surgery lasted about 4 hours and we went to recovery. It was so sad walking up and seeing him asleep all hooked up to everything. I got to hold him until he woke up. When he did his voice was all cracky. They had to put a breathing tube in his throat during the surgery so it was hard for him to talk for a little bit.

We finally got to take him home about 3 hours later. He got home and slept it off and was up and running around by 7 that night! Crazy. We actually had to restrain him from doing a lot. He is doing fine since then! The only time it seems to bother him is when we have to bathe him. Other than that you wouldn't even know! He sleeps A LOT during the day, though, which restricts what I can do. He wants to nurse a lot so I let him, of course!

I'm so glad it's over with! I have to take him on Wednesday to get the catheter removed. I'm nervous about that.

While I was there I saw other babies with much more severe problems than Brodey's. It makes me feel so lucky to have a normal and healthy baby boy. So lucky.
