Hello all! I hope that you are doing well! I hope you enjoyed the Lawn Fawn Blog Hop for Cards for Kids yesterday. I have been! There is still time to hop and have a chance to win prizes, see my post under this!
And also have you played with us at Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge yet this week? There's something for everyone with the brads, bling or buttons challenge! There is still time to play with the challenge ending tomorrow (friday) at 11:59 pst.
By the way this is a super long post but there is a giveaway at the end! Don't miss it!
I had planned to blog again yesterday with a card and a giveaway celebrating my blogaversary but I took my kids to Tinkertown (kids amusement park) With 13 of there friends and there mommies (5) We ended up spending the whole day there (from just shy of opening until when they closed!) It got so slow around dinner time and it was hard to leave since the lines were gone the weather wasn't hot and well the kids were behaving so well still! This resulted in a very tired me and I basically drove home walked into the door and onto the couch and Chad took over daddy duties of feeding and putting the kids to bed. I could barely walk! I took a hot bath and went to bed early! Lots of fun and I am glad we stayed so long but wow was I tired!
So a card, this one has been in my head for a while. May be my first ever single layer card, I wanted to use all the stamps from this Kiss From the Sun set by Hero Arts, love this set!
And today is my sweet baby boy's 2nd Birthday! Happy Birthday Carter! I can't beleive it's been two years since God blessed me with a boy! You are such a joy, so full of energy (just like me when I was little!) and your so happy! This past week you must have decided to talk since your saying all sorts of words that we didn't know you knew! Your so smart and your love of balls shall make for you being very involved in sports everyone thinks! I am sad that your molars have decided to come in right now that you've had a fever and don't seem to be yourself, although we are enjoying your cuddles that you need right now! I thought it would be nice to share some photo's of Carter these past two years:
Right after you were born, looking all suprised at how fast that was! (Arrived at the hospital at 1:20, born at 1:45, 15 minutes of pushing!)
Love this photo!
This is one of my favorite photos. Ariel loved you from the minute she met you.
So cute at almost 3 months!
Love the bowtie!
One of my favorite photos of you as a baby. You wore this hat a lot (I always thought when I had a baby boy I would put hats like this on him!)
Love your smile!
Happy 1st Birthday! I made your hat!
Getting into something! Which is what you do often!
Someone likes to help mommy cook!
Summer brought bleached out hair, and a tanned skull since you hated your hats!
Well I may have gone a bit crazy. There are even more cute photos to share but I will stop. Looking through his photos also leave me with another thought. I get pretty good photos of my kids, I should scrapbook!
If your still here reading this yay you made it to my giveaway time! (Rather than a big blog candy I am doing 5 smaller giveaways to 5 different people) Here is today's giveaway:
A cuttlebug folder, See Spots! This is a new one, I got so many comments on the folder when I made a card with it a bit ago so I thought it would be fun to buy another and give it away!
The deets on winning this:
You have to be a follower to my blog.
I would very much appreciate it if you would mention my giveaways this week on your blog, facebook, twitter your choice. You do not have to do a separate post about it or even share photos maybe just mention it with a link. And you don't have to do one for each giveaway either, you could wait until I post all the giveaways if you would like.
You can live anywhere in the world I am willing to send it wherever. Having small giveaways makes it cheaper and easier to send far off.
Leave a comment on this post for this prize. I will only draw on this post for this prize. I will try to figure out random.org to draw the prize.
You have until Monday August 30, 2010 to enter. :> Good luck!
Hope you have a super day! See you tomorrow with another giveaway!
