Almost December 1st...

Where has the time gone?! It is unbelievable that in 4 weeks we will be celebrating Christmas! With school programs, church plays, Christmas parties, baking cookies...who has time for anything else, LOL?

I just got finished taping my first webisode for Mosh-Posh. I think it went pretty well! Be sure to check it out in a week or so ;) Here are some sneaks of some of the projects I completed for the December kit:

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Happy 6th Birthday Hanna!!

Hanna turned 6 over the weekend!!! I cannot believe this little girl is already 6. We had a great time celebrating with friends and family. Happy Birthday Hanna!!!

We received some good news pertaining to Chad's job (or lack there of) and are very hopeful at this point. I always think I'm going to "jinx" a situation by talking about it or getting too excited about it. A lady in our bible study helped me to look at things like this in a new light though. She explained that good news is meant to be shared, something that should be shouted out, rejoiced. So I'm trying to get over my paranoia and just accept the good, ha ha. Anyway, I will hopefully be able to post more about this subject soon ;) Just wanted to shout out a huge THANK YOU to all of you who have been thinking about us, and praying for us while he has been laid off. It has meant so much to both of us.

On another GREAT note, I found out last weekend that I am officially a MOSH POSH girl!!! It is a wonderful kit club (actually the first one I ever belonged to) and I cannot wait to get started.

I also received some other good news (no, I'm not pregnant LOL!) but I can't divulge any information now ;) It is TOP SECRET!!!

Toodles for now!!

What is up with these toy recalls???

I just heard of yet another toy recall! Now "aqua-dots" has been pulled from the market. What??? I was actually going to get this for my oldest daughter. Now I'm leary to buy any toys this season. I just recently mailed back $250 worth of Mattel toys because of the lead scare. SO, what are you buying little ones for Christmas this year? I think we will stick with board games, books, play-doh, and anything else that has proven to be safe for the last 10+ years. It seems like nothing is safe now. My little Hanna has a certain obsession with a little toy called "littlest pet shop."
I just love this toy and will probably be buying a bunch of them for her. I'm not sure who likes them more, her or me!!!

Anyway, I wanted to thank all of you who sent me well wishings from my trip to the ER. I haven't had to go back and have only had minor problems.

I wanted to share a recent layout I did of Taylor, as she is getting older I rarely get the chance to take really good pictures of her. Well I just love this shot.

She is so sweet and innocent in this picture and MAN does this girl ever love watermelon! Lots of color infused in this layout. I have been in a bit of a scrapping rut lately. I seem to be pushing a lot of product around the table but not able to finish anything really concrete. Maybe this weekend I can come up with something!

I'm feeling ispired again....just got an e-mail from Scrapbook Trends requesting 2 of my Dream Street layouts for their latest idea book, "Embellish It." Their idea books are always amazing and I am thrilled to be able to contribute to it! In fact, it seems as though lots of familiar faces will be in that book! Congrats to all my CMK girls!!!

Speaking of this weekend, we have a girls trip planned with some of my family members. We are spending the day Saturday at a new mall in Toledo. Afterwards we are going to have a nice meal together. With Chad being laid off and the everyday business of life I am so thankful to have a get-away. I really need it lol!!!

We spent 2 hours at the dentist this morning. I HATE GOING THERE. And it wasn't even for me but for Tay and Hanna. They are little troopers and always do a great job but entertaining little Chloe is a suicide mission, HAHA. She was a maniac in there! At one point, the theme song from Shrek came on at the office and Chloe pauses long enough to gasp, "MOM, that song from Shrek!" The dental assistants were amazed that a little 2 year old would know that, I just sighed because that means my "little 2 year old" watches WAY. TOO. MUCH. SHREK. It was embarassing.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!
