WOW! Where did the time go? I have been so busy this week that I haven't had time to really blog!
First, my middle baby turned 16 last Thursday. Then I had a birthday on Saturday. Sunday was Easter. I had Eric's sister and brother and their families as well as my mother in law over to our house for lunch after church.
On Tuesday we bought Ryan a car. The KMA contest ended Thursday. Creating Keepsakes Convention/ St. Louis was on Friday. Which brings us to today.
I'm waiting for a good photo op to capture Ryan's step towards adulthood by getting his driver's license. It was been yucky and rainy for over a week! I can't believe how gross and cold it is outside!
The KMA contest lasted for 6 weeks with challenges weekly. Although I didn't win in the contest, I had so much fun and made a bunch of new friends, which is the great part. I can now post my layouts from the contest to my blog. I posted a couple of them already before I knew about that stipulation.
I took a card class at the CKC on Friday which also consisted of a card swap, so I had to bring 20 cards with me so I've been busy working on those this week.
Connor has been saying some of the funniest stuff this week. I hope I can remember it all.
The other day we were in the car and Grammy asked him, "Connor, what are you going to be when you grow up"? Without missing a beat he said, "A man". Ha ha! I thought he would say, policeman or doctor or something else. Ha ha! Also, I'm so proud of my son. He knows Eric's and my cell phone number by heart. We only had to tell him a couple times and he remembered it! It's so amazing how quickly they pick things up!
Here is one of the layouts I did for the contest.
Here's the challenge:
Create a page that answers this question: What do you (or your family) do for fun? And of course, for the rules:
1. At least one photo must NOT be a square or rectangle.
2. You must doodle somewhere on your layout 3.No piece of pp can be larger than a dollar bill
Journaling in the star reads: Eric's dream job is to be a race car driver, so to fill his need for speed, we head out to race go-karts. He's passing his love of racing to Connor at an early age! The place we go also has an awesome arcade complete with Skee ball and games. We always have a good time.
