Hello everyone!!! Yesterday was the United Way SWARM and boy did we have a BLAST!!! The goal was to raise $500.. the amount raised was over $600. WOO HOO!!! We had raffles and door prizes and silent auctions. There was sooo much food it was unbelieveable!!! By the time I remembered my camera most of the women were in and out getting food, so I only got a couple photos.

   Hey everyone!!! I made it home and so did my Gypsy!!! We had a GREAT weekend meeting Jenny, Carla, and their families. Our family was really comfortable with theirs. It was as if we knew eachother already. Jenny and Carla checked out the Gypsy and they BOTH NEED one now. LOL.. My mission is accomplished. We all chit chatted and the kids got along GREAT!!! Jenny and I didn't have time to craft, but she did take me to Joannes and I got a few paper stacks. We took lots of pics so.. be ready for them soon.
   Tomorrow the evaluator will be here to check Colton out. His speech is less than it should be for a 2 year old so... doesn't hurt to get him checked. Cross your fingers he is just being lazy and it's not something serious.
   Well.. hope everyone had a GREAT weekend. HAPPY CRAFTING!!!

December 1, 2009

Ok.. so it has been a while since I have posted anything. Can you believe it is December 1 already??? For starters, I have had one heck of a time trying to make this blog. Ugh... As you can see.. my header is still jacked up and I have NO CLUE how to fix it. If any of you bloggers have a clue.. can you please let me know?

Well, we made it through Thanksgiving and had a great time. My parents were down from Michigan and that in itself was amazing for me. I haven't spent a Thanksgiving with my parents since I was a child. Well, I married young and moved and never made it for holidays. Working at Walmart never helped as there are times when THEY say you can take a vacation. So.. that's it. Anywho.. we had a great dinner and wonderful family time. I hope everyone did as well. Now it is time for the Christmas season and finish up those cards... oh no.... those are the same cards I have only 1 made of.. so... everyone.. stop blogging and get to crafting!!!
