Where did April go?

Do you remember as a kid when grown ups would tell you that as you grow older time goes faster, you'd think yeah whatever! Well it's true, time is just flying by and I would like it to slow down!

This past weekend we celebrated Trevors birthday again with an extended family party. When we planned the party we didn't realize it was opening day and pictures for baseball, opening day was cancelled (it won't stop raining) but while we had a house full of relatives Rory was doing the picture shuttle. Trev first and then an hour later it was Brendans turn.

Getting some cardmaking done this week and plan to start looking at my Etsy store with a little more focus, just need things to slow down to find the time, oh and if the cold would go away as well that would be awesome!!

Baseball & Birthdays

We just finished our first week of baseball with both boys playing this year. They play on alternate days throughout the week and because of this every day, with the exception of Friday, we were at the ballpark.

Brendan is playing blast ball, this is our first crack at this and it's a learning experience. They practice for 1/2 hour each game and then play 2 innings. I think the kids have the most fun running to the bases because when you jump on them they honk, I had no idea what it was at first, crazy but cute.

Trevor is in his first year with pitchers. They play 2 innings with pitchers and then 3 innings with the machine. Oh and the uniforms, awesome!!! Trevors team are the Orioles and they look like mini Orioles, belt and all.

Today we had Trevors kid party for his 8th birthday. We had a movie party, 8 kids to see How to train your Dragon, honestly I think this was the best kids movie I have ever seen, I loved it. We didn't see it in 3D and I am happy we didn't because I think it would be too scary for some of them. We had a ball!

I was also able to put together some scrapbook layouts and cards this week, so it was a busy week but a fun one for sure.

Etsy feature - Monkeys

Today I was at a baby shower and the theme was Monkey's. I honestly have never seen so many monkey themed items and it inspired me to do a monkey feature.

Here are just a handful of the wonderful items I found today on Etsy.

You can click on the links below the pics to view these items plus many more in the shops.


Thanks for looking :)

Sick and windy

It has been a crazy week since Easter. We had a wonderful holiday weekend but one of my guests decided to share more than I would have liked :) Actually I don't know where it came from but I have been fighting a cold all week. It comes on so bad I don't want to move a muscle and then a few hours later I feel fine and then back to the other state. I wish it would either come on full force to get over it or even better just go away all together. I am actually tired of my whining, lol.

Then there has been the wind, it has been a constant wind storm for the past week. This isn't normal for us and it's starting to get on my nerves, we have a vent outside that just bangs when it's windy and it's awfully noisy when trying to get some sleep....there I go again with the whining :)

I put together a baby shower card today but unfortunately forgot to take a pic, you will just have to take my word for it, it was really cute!
