Easter Baskets

April 2nd, 2009

Last year I was a bad mom and didn’t get Derek an Easter basket. Luckily, he has a great aunt that usually picks up where I fall short. easter1

This year, I will be a good mom and get them Easter baskets! I was thrilled when I opened these last night. Aren’t they cute?! I want to order one for every kid I know!

I purchased them from Ceadar Hill Heirlooms. The workmanship is amazing! And the turn around time is very fast. You can see their store here.

New Designs – Baby Shower, Graduation

March 30th, 2009

I have been so busy with custom orders, I haven’t designed any new cards.  I finally decided to sit down today and come up with at least one new design.  The first one is a revised version of an Easter card I designed.  I think this is a fun design for that mom-to-be that doesn’t like the traditional, themed shower.  funky-shower


Jenn at J Cooper Photography sent me some great images to use for graduation announcements. Here’s one design I have completed. I have a couple others started, I just get side tracked and can stay focused enough to finish! By the way, if you are in the Kansas City area, look her up. Her photography is amazing! 01

You can see all my designs in my Etsy store.

Lucas’ Hospital Stay

March 28th, 2009

Little Lucas gave us a little scare. He had a pretty severe case of croup. As a result, he had to spend 3 nights in the hospital. He was a trooper though. Here are a few images that were taken in the hospital.



Of course, nothing can make you feel better like McDonalds french fries, right??

Here’s the jail crib that he was supposed to sleep in.


Of course, he wanted nothing to do with sleeping in that thing. Although, they aren’t supposed to, the nurses let him sleep in the cot they had in the room for me.

It really was nice to be able to cuddle with him though.

We were finally able to come home Friday morning.
Lucas sure does look better than Dan and I do! I think he was just happy to not be hooked up to any machines anymore. They had taken the IV out right before this picture was taken.

We all were so happy to be home! Now, he is going through a phase where he doesn’t want to sleep in his crib. Between that and the teething that he and Derek are going through, we haven’t been getting much sleep. Oh well, such is life.

Terrible Two’s?

March 24th, 2009

This has been a rough couple of weeks at our house. To start, it’s been a long winter! I think we all have a major case of cabin fever. Additionally, both boys are teething. This means that we are getting very little sleep. To top it all off, I think Derek is going through the terrible two stage. He has always been pretty easy going and well behaved. Here is a list of some of the naughty things he has done lately.

* Scribbled with black Sharpie and yellow highlighter all over Dan’s computer monitors. Luckily, it came off! It wasn’t fun calling Dan at work to let him know.

* He broke a glass candle in the bathroom. This candle had been there, untouched, for two years.

* Playing in the toilet. I heard laughing and water splashing and knew I better investigate. I thought I would find them playing in the tub with toys that still had leftover water in them. Nope, this is what I found.

Fun times playing in toilet

Derek is trying to pretend that he had nothing do to with it. But, he is just as wet as Lucas. You can’t really tell in the picture, but they were both soaked!

* I was feeding Lucas his bottle on the couch. I kept hearing something hitting the floor…blackberries! He thought this was a ton of fun!


Add to the list, squeezing the tube of anything he can find, lotion, toothpaste, conditioner….the list goes on. While most of this may sound like normal child’s play….it isn’t normal for Derek.

Ugh…recounting all this just makes me tired!:)

Lucas has been equally difficult in his own way. Come back for that story!
