Happy 29th Anniversary to us!

 Love you Deke!

Easter Blessings from our home to yours!

Jesus has risen for all of us.
Let us rejoice on this special day!

Here is a bunny that the boys & I made...
We sure had fun crafting!
liquid glue, foam paper plate, cottons balls, 3/4" circle punch, 1" circle punch, large oval punch

AND then Brayden & I colored eggs.
 It was alot of fun.  The tie-dye ones were are favorites!

We also made Scotcheroos & put them into large eggs & added the chocolate on top.

We are off to church this morning & then to my sister Beckie's for supper with my family tonight.

I hope you enjoy your day with family & friends!
Happy Easter!
Many Blessings-

Here is a picture of Nathan's wrecked car!

My words to Deke when he text me last night that Nathan got wrecked...."CRAP"!  
Thank God he wasn't hurt!
The new car looks pretty bad though.
Guess the guys will be spending alot of time in the shop putting it back together.
And it was SO PRETTY before.

Oh, Whale

Good morning!

Here is one of the cards that everyone did at my 'All Occasions' card class.
I just love this little whale!
 (I will update this post in the next day or two with a supply list.)

I enjoyed supper & visiting with my friends Donna & Phyllis last night!
It has been along time since we've had the chance to get together.
The guys all went racing.
Nathan got 2nd in his heat & got wrecked in the main, so they'll be spending alot of time in the shop this week putting his car back together.
THANKFULLY Nathan wasn't hurt.

This is a quick post, as I am off to get my hair cut & then deliver stamps along the way!
Then tonight I have a date with my honey!
Nathan & April got us a gift certificate for Christmas, so we are going out to eat supper tonight to celebrate our anniversary!
Yep- tomorrow (03/31) I'll have been married to my best friend for 29 years!
It was a beautiful spring day on our wedding day too.
I don't know where the time goes.....doesn't seem like it has been that many years.
HOPING & PRAYING we have many more anniversaries to celebrate together.
I'm lucky to have such a great husband!
Heck how many husbands help their wife get ready for stamp classes?
Deke is a Big Shot pro!
Oh how I am blessed in so many ways!

I hope you have a great day!
Happy Stamping!

BUSY WEEKEND here.....starting today.....

Yesterday was a fun & busy day with the twins & new baby piggies!

Last night Deke & I went to the hospital to visit my step-dad.  He was in good spirits, but in alot of pain.  He has a long road ahead of him with healing from his hip surgery.  He has a huge screw, several little screws & a big plate in him now to hold everything together on his hip.  I felt so sorry for him.  He is definitely in my prayers, as he begins his healing journey.

My mom was diagnosed with bladder cancer late last fall.  She did several weeks of treatment & her last tests 6 weeks ago show that she is cancer free!!  She does have to follow up with treatment every couple months for several years & starts that process will be saying extra prayers for her too.
For today's schedule....
Manda has the day off today, so she'll get to enjoy the day home with the twins.
With my coffee in hand, I am off to my Stamp Studio to cut wedding invites for Shanoah, as she will be home this weekend & they want to get them all made.
Then I have several orders that arrived the past couple of days too that I need to get sorted, cut & bagged to get delivered.
Nathan races in Donnellson tonight so all of the guys will be going there.
I am going to visit my friend Donna, whom I haven't seen since right before Christmas.
(She was diagnosed with breast cancer last summer & has been finished with her treatments for a month.  She is doing great!!!)

Ok- gotta run....
I hope you have a fabulous Friday!
Many Blessings!

There were several friends & family that came to Pat's visitation tonight.
We were just going to have graveside services today, but due to all of SNOW- we'll be having her services at the funeral home & do her burial later, as she was cremated.

I hope you have a great day!!

Especially for You....

HI! has been a crazy week preparing.....
I've been cooking tonight & just got done loading part of my car.
My card stock cutting just got finished too!
I'm headed to bed for a few hours & will get up bright & early to bake cookie bars & finish loading the card before I head out about 6:30.
I'm off to Hiawatha to spend my day stamping with lots of stamping friends.
They will be attending my Annual 'All Occasions' card class.
I'm EXCITED & can't wait for them to see all of the cards.
I thought that the card shown today could be an "anything" card.
It would make a pretty wedding card, birthday card, sympathy card, get well card, etc.

Several of my downline & adoptees are attending a Stampin' UP! Regionals today in St. Louis.
I know they'll have fun & can't wait to hear all about it!!
If I hadn't already had this big stamp camp scheduled I would have been joining them.
I hope they have safe travels back home too with this predicted snow storm.

Wow- have a fabulous day! 
Happy Stamping!

Deke's Aunt Pat Baylor passed away at 5:00 a.m this morning.
Our hearts are sad.
But we are thankful that she is at peace & in a better place.
Bless her!

  • Visitation is Sunday (3/24) from 5 to 7 pm at Holland-Coble Funeral Home in What Cheer.
  • Graveside Services will be on Monday (3/25) at 11 am at Highland Cemetery at What Cheer. 
  • A Luncheon will follow the service at Thomas Memorial Hall at the What Cheer Fairgrounds

Thinking of you.....

Good morning.....
Deke's Aunt Pat was hospitalized 1 1/2 weeks ago.  (She hadn't been sick before that.)
She has ovarian cancer that has spread to her liver.  Her kidneys & body are shutting down.  They put her in hospice yesterday.  So we went to visit her last night.  Today is her 59th birthday. (She is so young.)   It is just so sad.....I grew up next to Deke's grandma & Aunt Pat.  We moved next to them when I was in 1st grade.  I have many fond memories of playing at their home when I was young, plus all of the memories since I've become part of the family too so many years ago.
Please keep Pat & her family in your prayers.

This is a card that I am doing at my 40 card class.
It is a simple but elegant card that could be used for many different occasions.

Summer Smooches Designer Paper

It was just 3 weeks ago that Brody had his surgery.
He is now bandage free!
His incision is healing well.
His hair is starting to grow back.
He acts totally normal.
We count our blessings each day!

I still have lots of card stock to get cut!
But I'm sure looking forward to stamping with everyone that is joining me on Saturday for my 'All Occasions' Card Class though. 

Have a great day!
Happy Stamping!

He still needs to wear his covering on it for another week.

Today all 3 boys will be spending the day with Grandma!
And tonight I'll still be cutting card stock!
And cooking.....we are having a yummy lunch tomorrow too!
Can't wait to spend the day with so many that will be joining me!

Then I worked on sorting stamp orders that arrived yesterday.
Gosh- when Sale-a-bration is over with the twins & I are miss seeing my UPS man every day.
The boys love seeing Chase (my UPS man).  
He is our nephews best friend & a racing buddy of Nathan's that we've known for years!
He always visits a minute with the twins & once in awhile he gets to grab a warm cookie to take with him, as he usually gets here just as the boys are getting up from their nap. 
They are always excited when they hear his big brown truck pulling into our driveway.

Ok....gotta run as Manda has an early meeting today & I still have lots I need to get done before the twins get here.

I hope you have a super day!
Happy Stamping!
