Well, Hello There!

Good Sunday evening, blog readers! Hope you had a great weekend . . . only a few more days until the 4th of July holiday, woohoo!

As you can see, my blog has had a makeover! How do you like it? I love it! Thanks so much to the talented (and patient) Kristine Davidson for the beautiful artwork. What a wonderful difference!

Believe it or not, I've been a busy lil scrapbooker lately. I just completed a layout with a photo of my boys that I took recently at our "new" house on the bayou. Y'all know I'm not one to clutter up a page, but when I got the Cricut "Create a Critter" cartridge, the wheels in my head started to turn like crazy! Isn't it cute? I love the dragonflies!

Last weekend was Father's Day, and in keeping with tradition, I made Gil a card from me and the kids. He really liked it and I'm glad about that, because he is a wonderful father to our four babies. I've never known anyone to work harder to take care of his family than this man. And even when he's exhausted from working all night and all the next day, he still gives lots of patient help with homework, goodnight hugs, attends soccer games and teacher meetings, without complaint. Yep, he's a keeper!

My brother's daughter and twin sons celebrated their birthdays earlier this month. Here are the cards I made for them!

These cards were really fun to make. I went a little crazy with the Stickles!

Anna, Jack and Matt had checkups with the dentist a few days ago (Caroline was still at camp), and as a reward for their good (ahem) behavior, they each got a stick-on mustache. What silly geese!

Special hello to our sweet friend, Rhea . Here she is with Anna in Colorado in December of 08. Rhea is a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a friend, a physician, and a beautiful human being. Tons and tons of hugs and love to you! Oh, and "shut your pie hole"! ;)

Happy 4th of July, hope that you all have a safe and fun-filled holiday! As always, thanks so much for taking the time out of your day to visit with me. :)
