Last Tuesday I started to goto a Mom and Tot's group with my dd, since the boys are at school I thought it would be a great momma daughter thing to do. I have been seeing a mom with her little guy (about the same age as my dd), walking on our road and have been trying to "bump" into her at the grocery store. But as things would have it, it never happened...I know, I know why didn't I pull over and introduce myself??? Well, I am not that kind of momma to just pull over and do such a thing...but this mom I had been seeing is going to the same group we are and that is when we introduced ourselves :)...tee hee.
Wow, take a look over at Kristine's blog "Lost in Creativity", she is having a blog candy giveaway and this is what she is giving away. Looks good eh??

Wow, is all I have to say...lol! So my dh's cousin Matthew asked Stephanie (another cousin) if she wanted to try something with him called "Flying yoga"...she said "ummm...okay!" So here are some pictures of them doing a few of the poses...wish I got the first set they did on camera because that was really really neat :). It reminded me of that kids game called Airplane, however you are resting your hips on his feet while you are UPSIDE DOWN. Yes, you read that correctly...you are UPSIDE DOWN doing various stretches while upside down. Oh yeah, did I mention no hands are allowed either??? Yep, no hands unless of course you are holding hands with the person who is on the bottom and who is holding you up with their feet!!
She had just finished crying, as one of our good friends tried
There is a new family in our neighborhood who just moved here from Germany, anyways on Friday before we went to the family church retreat I made a batch of chocolate chip cookies. I also wanted to make a card to give to this family to go with some chocolate chip cookies, and so here is what I came up with. This family has a little boy who is in E*'s class at school, this is the little boy my father is helping out :)!

For this months challenge we not only had to make a card for everyone attending, but we had to make a single layered card. Here are the cards I received from all the other crafty gals...
Tuesday, September 15, 2009
The challenge this month was to make a card that only had one layer, as in the card base plus one layer. Any embellishment was considered a layer...so what I did was start out with a black base for my card, and added a Very Vanilla layer to the card. From there I inked the sides, I also brushed ink all over the front of the card, then stamped several stamps all over the 1 layer I had to work with. Basically, I created my own Collage card :p!

Please head on over to the blog called "Cardsngreetings", because she is celebrating her first Blogaversary and wanted to give up some goodies to help celebrate.
Okay, so I haven't been over to the Dartmouth Crossings Michael's crafty store in forever just because usually I have 2 out of 3 kids with me but today I only had 1 so it was a little easier to do. I was still crazy to even consider going in, but I thought I want to go in and just take a peek....well the peek turned into a long long browse.
