the kids are gone to "camp grandma's" for two days so i can get some catching up done around the house. i seriously had not put away laundry in the kids' rooms in i don't know how long. ugh!
i've just gone through all of em's clothes & organized her closet. such a nice feeling for everything to have a place and to purge some. we're getting a trundle bed for her room tonight from some nice folks on freecycle, and we're trying to get the room all ready in preparation for atticus to join her before the new baby arrives. i know we've got some time to prepare for that, but it's best to get stuff done when you can
, because time flies by so quickly.
atticus is not quite walking yet, but we keep hoping it'll be any day now. he just doesn't seem to be too motivated. he's such a happy little guy.
yesterday emerson was talking on "her" cell phone, and she kept calling people... papa, grandma, 'ninner' (ginger), kari-ann, and...... strawberry shortcake. i was totally cracking up. she is so silly.
oh glorious rain... we are actually having a thunderstorm at the moment. i really don't remember the last time it poured like this. seriously- a month at least, prob longer. it's like my dream day... i've got the house all to myself and can clean and organize to my heart's content, with the thunder and rain cleaning the earth outside. yay! :)
here's some cards i made last weekend and just hadn't had a chance to upload yet.... they were part of a challenge from my friend karen. i had to use the "wishing you joy" stamp and the blue velvet ribbon to make some cards.
and part two of the challenge is to give one of the cards to someone who lives outside of the state of alabama... so post a silly joke here for me, and i will put your name in a drawing for the card of your choice and a couple of other little goodies! :)
