Get Well Soon Debbie Cakes

My sweet DIL had surgery this week and we wish her a speedy recovery! The get well card is one I made for her. Love the fall colors of the Basic Grey paper, the Martha Stewart leaf punch, Stampin Up circle scallop punch and you know me and my beads! LOL Finally got Sean's birthday pictures from a few weeks ago. This is just a 6X6 page for his little SB. I think the nintendo DS was a hit! How many of you braved the crowds and got out there and shopped today? Not me!!! I worked Thanksgiving night so the only thing that looked good to me the next morning was my bed! It was a good night at work though. Lots of the staff brought in food from their family dinners and I got to sample it. Yippee! Hats of to Terrie's Moma, she made an Italian Cream Cake to die for! Yummy!

Does this happen to you?

I sit down to update my blog and start reading your blogs and before I know it an hour has pasted and I haven't done what I set out to do? There is just never enough time....
John has been home this week regaining his strength and getting his medications adjusted. Now that it is Friday he is going a little stir crazy, following me around like a puppy and messing with my mojo! LOL I am sure some of you can relate! LOL I am thankful he is feeling better now!
Can you believe this was Maggie Beth's school picture? Neither can I - Love it! Did this page last week. Maggie's outfit has apple slice buttons on it but they aren't visiable in the picture. Love this Stampin' Up paper because of the apple slices. The words are by Memory Makers found at Big Lot's for a buck a pakckage, gotta love that!

New Ways and Thank Yous

Got a new rice cooker yesterday, cute little red pot, yes? Trying to to find new easy was to cook low fat and whole grain foods. This little red pot also comes with a steam basket for veggies. Think I am going to like this pot! Also making thanking you notes for all the great people who helped John and I out. We are so blessed!

What a week it was!

Just a quick run down on what has been happening. My hubby was feeling bad last Wednesday night and had to be admitted to CCU. He was having some heart problems and HTN. The next morning he was sent to a larger facility were he had two stents put in. Lots of waiting, watching and medications and he is now back home doing well. We feel incredibly blessed to have such a good outcome and such good doctors, nurses and good friends. Our heartfelt thanks to you all!

Te he he he! These are mostly unpublished pictures of you from this past year. Which reminds me, is all you want for Christmas your two front teeth? or did you already get them? LOL Well I never claimed to be a comedy writer but I do miss cutting up with you!

It's Frightening!

I got busy after 'Dancing with the Stars' last night and created this page. Just loved this picture of Maggie and her friends. Their Mothers got together and plotted this plan for Trick or Treat delight. Speaking of 'Dancing with the Stars',
I am finding this season not as exciting as previous seasons. I did like the group dance which was scored. Added a little extra to the mix.

Home from the Big Town

We are home from a super fun weekend! Maggie's parade and party were a big success! So many cute costumes! Poppie John had a really big Birthday this year, he got a new RIDE! It was time, he had his last truck for twelve years! Yummy strawberry filled cream cheese cake with trick candles that just would not go out! On the last night we had a camp fire with smores, ghost stories and singing. The weather was perfect. One last little detail, we found out Maggie would be having a little brother! On the way home got to stop at Achiever's! Yippeeeee! Got a sack full of goodies. You know what that means, gotta go get scrappin!
