"Put us on your blog Mom"

While i tried to escape to my scraproom today to make a card Sammy say's... "Mom let me make a card and you can put it on your blog".... Please! Well how could i say no to that. Once they saw the Fellas by Bella stamps they started picking out the paper (not my CTMH stash please) and they got out their colored pencils and away they went. They even went through my embellishments. Yikes I had to help a little. But this is what they made and they are very proud of their cards. Sammy wanted to stamp Sammy, while Micah was off in the other room writting his name on his card. If you think their cards are cute please feel free to leave a comment. I'll make sure they get them ..... Kids? .... I love mine!! Love the tanned face and yellow legs. :)
I guess i should include the stamps... fishafella and grillafella

Say Ahhhhh

My 8 year old son Sam had his Orthodontics appt. this morning. Poor guy has his upper mouth/teeth full of brackets, bands & wires. Just over a year ago at Sams regular dental appt. we found out through xrays that his 12 year molars were coming down crooked on top of his 6 year molars and killing the roots. Yikes. So needles to say he had to have those 2 upper - 6 year molars pulled to make room for the 12 year molars to come in. Well the 12 year molars were not coming in straight but on an angle. So here's where the Orthodontics comes in. Dr had to put brackets on his other upper molars so they would pull his other teeth foward to make room for the 12 year molars to come down straight. (still with me) If not treated he would have quite a mess in his mouth, his teeth would be everywhere.

Sam cried today after his appt. Dr had to put a different bridge device on the upper roof of his mouth. But the painful thing about it is, it has to be tighten everyday. Dr gave us a little wire tool that i have to hook up to the roof of his mouth and give it a crank. "Ouch" In time it will actually widen his upper jaw outward. He'll have to wear this device for 3 to 4 months.
Sam just wants it all out of his mouth. We try to explain to him that it's for his own good that he has this done now. Because later in his life it will be all worth it when all his teeth are straight and where they should be.

In light of all this it's kinda neat that i got braces last June. I never had them when i was younger (I needed them) but just never did it. $$ Well when i got my braces Sam felt so much better because we both had a mouth full of wires. And there were certain foods neither one of us could eat. I guess you can say.... I feel his pain. (well kinda)

Gone Fishing

This LO was fun to put together considering it was two different ice fishing trips in Jan/Feb 08 The first page was when Charlie took both Sam & Micah, they caught fish that day. The picture of Micah in the hunting tent was when Charlie took just Micah ice fishing. They caught nothing. He's just waiting patiently for the fish to bite. I love the picture! I had help with the title (got fish? ) on CTMH BB. Thanks ladies! Caption fits perfectly. And the picture of Micah smiling at the fish. I guess Charlie told him to... Kiss It ....YUCK

It's Monday

Me and the boy's are surviving here while my hubby is visiting his family in Florida till the 8th.
He has been seen popping in on a few posts, commenting on my artwork. =) Thanks hon! We Miss You >>>> XOXOXO<<<< can't wait to see you!!
Yesterday afternoon my boys school had a family fun day at a "Germ Infested" Indoor Water Park. LOL We went and they had a blast. It was hard to get them to leave. ( you know how that is) But when you tell them... "we'll come back again" It makes leaving a little easier. Not

I have been enjoying my time off from daily part time babysitting my granddaughters. (I miss them) My daughter is on maternity leave for 3 months which gave me time off as well. I have been getting reacquainted with my scrap room, goodies, toy's, tools, and creating again. LOL It's been fun. Not to mention relaxing and the feeling of accomplishment when the pages are completed, and they have a voice and a story to tell, and not just preserved in a photo book.
I've been so far behind on pages, so I'm playing catch up right now. I have a few events like birthday pages i need to complete.
Well, my boys will be up very shorly and my day will begin by getting them ready and off to school, errands, and the daily chores of a... "Stay at home Mom".
It's Monday... Have a Blessed Day!!

Oh and today i'm sending out my very first blogger RAK (random act of kindness) package. Who will it be!?!

LOVE The Hat

This picture might look a little familiar. I used it with the post... "She Called Me Gamma" But the real purpose of this shot of Meghan was the hat. It was made just for her by a family member of my son in law. I wanted the title to say "Love That Hat" but i ran out of T's.
