Hello my favorite friends!
I haven't been posting much in August and I hope you don't think this is the norm. I usually post every other day or so but lately, most of my time has been in the nursing home with my Dad. (I will give an update on him after the MRI results). I continue to thank you all for your thoughts and prayers and sweet comments!!! :)
I am still going strong here and keeping my mind and soul as positive as I can be, without cracking up ;)
I am still working on Silver Bella swaps, practicing for our Alumni softball tournament (which is next weekend), and I am leaving for Texas tomorrow. Saturday is (my little niece) Ella Jane's FIRST birthday party!!! Her birthday is September 4th but this was the only weekend we could get the family (well...most of it) together.
These were the invitations that (my 16 year old niece) Payton sent to family members. The clothespin is a magnet to put on the fridge and little Ella Jane's photo hangs from the ribbon that is tied to it...too cute!
My two sisters and I (including husbands, kids, mother-in-law and a dog) are bombarding my little brother's house for the whole weekend! He and his wonderful wife live in a Texas-sized mansion so there is plenty room for all of us to stay. It's better known as the "Hotel Rougeau" ;)
And oh, did I mention his little wife was pregnant again and due on September 10th? Ella Jane and "the new baby" will be 1 year and 6 days apart!!!!!! Whew! Soon we will have another little patootie to spoil!
So I will leave you with some sneak peeks (without spoiling the surprise) of some of the wonderful things Payton made for the party!!!!! She worked so hard but we had SO much fun!
As you can see, I think I have Payton hooked on velvet too!!!! ;)
I still have SO much to post about! I want to give you sneak peeks of all the swaps I'm in! My little studio looks like it's been hit by a hurricane! Hopefully Sophie will clean it while I'm gone. ;)
So after all of the partying this weekend, I hope to bring some color back with me and post about Ella Jane's first birthday!!!
~I hope you all have a wonderful weekend too~
Even if you don't have a party scheduled, celebrate anyway!!!
