My First Stampin Up Order

Not many people would understand my excitement about posting this picture, but anyone that scraps, stamps, or makes cards would understand. I have never ordered but just one or two things from SU and was sooo excited to place a large order. Their shipping fees have always held me back before, but I finally gave in and bought several things I had been drooling over. This is a pic of my first of three Stampin Up orders. Shortly after receiving this I was reading someone's blog and they mentioned SU just made tons of items available on clearance. So I went back and placed another order. The very next day, another blog saying more items placed in the clearance section. So I went back for a third and final time and ordered a few more things. I bought every paper pack they had listed, along with some stamping wheels, ribbons, and buttons. I have not looked since. Too dangerous for me. I meant to get a pic of the other orders, but totally forgot when I started looking at all of the pretty papers! I am totally loving everything I have bought so far!

This is my new niece...Mattisyn. She is sooo adorable and pretty in pink! She was born on March 02, 2010. My sister Audrey has waited many years to be a Granny and is loving every minute of this sweet baby. My sister Brenda just went to NY this weekend to meet her. Taunia is a little over thirty and has prayed for a family for many years. At one point she was considering artifical insemination before she turned 35. Then just a little over two years ago, she met her husband and they married in September 2008 and now they have this beautiful blessing. She also has a Wonderful Life!

These didn't upload with the egg. I'll try again!

The Easter Bunny

I was sitting here at the computer in the front of our house and saw this flash of white outside my window. I looked up and saw someone on a scooter dressed as the Easter Bunny. I quickly grabbed my camera and rushed out the front door. It was a friend of our neighbors who is having an Easter egg hunt at their house. He sweetly let me take his pic and then returned a few minutes late with an egg! How sweet!


I just talked with my Granddaughter and asked if they were doing eggs today for the EB and she said yes once her cousin comes over this afternoon. I sure hope someone takes pics of this and send me a few! I love my pics and it's hard to enjoy these Holidays when our kids all live out of state.

Madison's Pappy's

Alex and Madison was at my house for Spring Break the middle of March. After they got back home Ashley called and said "Mom, do you know what happened to all of Madison's pappy's? I don't have that many of them" I told her I would look, but that I tried to find all I could when she went home. Well, last week while sorting thru my punch drawer I found one of her pappy's and this morning Rick came in from the garage showing me one of my old containers he had placed in the garage. I can now tell Ash that I found two more! Sweet baby!!

Emily

This is my youngest daughter Emily Kay. She is also my favorite youngest daughter. I have a favorite oldest daughter too! We laugh about being Mom's favorite all the time. For years whenever I go on vacation to a condo or hotel, I always take a washcloth and bring it home. My husband scoldes me each time, but it's just something I do. While Em lived here I would just wash it and add it to my household linens. But when Em moved to Fort Worth several years ago I started giving them to her. She always knew when she unpacked her suitcase, somewhere in there she would find it. When Rick and I go on vacation alone, I still get one and whenever I see Em or happen to send a package to the girls, I will tuck it away in the box and a note on where it came from. She has come to expect them and enjoys our little exchange. Two weekends ago we drove to Monroe LA to meet my girls and Jeremy. We had both Grands here for one week while Alex was out for Spring Break and it was time for them to go home. My kids had spent the previous night enjoying a fun night at one of the casino's in Sheveport and spent the night at the casino hotel and left the following morning to meet us. After a nice lunch and then going to the cars to transfer the kids stuff back to Ashley's car, Em said "Mom, I got you something" and handed me a small bag. Inside it, you guessed it, it was a hotel washcloth!! I thought that was soooo sweet! A fun, small exchange that was full of sweet memories for both of us! I love you Emily!
