So, I joined a swap on CM (CafeMom) where we have to make an Envelope Card with a Fall theme and stuff it full of goodies for our swap partner! So, here is my "Fall/Halloween" Envelope card! This one is going to Jenn, I hope she likes it! This card uses Stampin' Up! stamps (Spooktacular Greetings), Dollar Stamps from Michael's and an old unmounted rubber stamps that I got years ago at a convention.

And, while I was working on that one, I decided to make my brother, Davy's birthday card as well! So, I made him an Envelope card, too! This one will get stuffed with a Starbucks card! I'm pretty sure he'll get some use out of that! I hope he likes the card, too! This card uses Stampin' Up! stamps (Espressoly For You and Espress Yourself)

Emily's Outfit

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Wednesday, September 17, 2008 2 stamps of approval

So, I got an outfit for Emily to wear to school today and asked her to go get dressed.
Jeans, a pink tank top, pink socks, pink panties and tennis shoes. I went to get Bradley dressed and when I went back to check on her, she had put her socks BACK in the drawer and was putting on sandals... I told her she couldn't wear sandals to school, because the rocks in the playground would hurt her feet. When she stood up to get her socks and tennis shoes, I saw that she had put her pink tutu on over her jeans! It was just soo cute! I left it on her and sent her to school! She still had it on when I picked her up! Hey, at least she matches! Maybe she'll start a new fashion trend! Prada, watch out!

Mid-September Ramblings

Hello from Kennewick! It's sunny with blue skies here today. I wish I could send some of this good weather down south! It's starting to cool down a little bit, and as much as I complained about the hot days of summer, I'm not looking forward to the icy days of winter!!

So Emily's second week of preschool was a short one! Wednesday was a teacher inservice day, so there was no school. This turned out to be a good thing, because poor Emily spiked a fever that day of 102.2! So, we stayed home and she actually took a nice long nap that afternoon! The next day her fever was down to almost normal, but it did creep up to 99.2 later in the afternoon. So, she stayed home with me again. Friday morning she had her first dentist appointment, which we ended up canceling because her fever snuck back up to 100.4! So, I called her pediatrician (again), only to find out that she was off that day! We ended up taking her to the walk-in clinic to see a Dr. I didn't want her to go the whole weekend with a jumping fever! So, the Dr. saw her and said that she just had a bug, her ears were fine, but her throat was a bit red. So he gave her an antibiotic and told us to keep giving Tylenol to keep the fever under control. After one dose of antibiotic, we could see a definate improvement! Today she is feeling much much better! Back to her old self, really!
Bradley stood up all by himself today! Well, I stood him up, but he stayed up by himself! He held on to his little table just long enough for me to snap a couple photos and then he fell down! Poor little guy! It's a long way down for him! So, after that, he was a little scared and I had to stay behind him where he could touch me when he wobbled! He's still just scooting along the floor, but today he was using his knees more, not quite crawling, but he's figuring out that if he uses his knees, he moves faster! Pretty soon, he'll be chasing Emily through the house!! Oh, I'm so not ready to chase after 2 of them!!!

I'll sign off for now! Thanks for checking in!

Have a wonderful day!

September 11, 2001. The entire world felt the impact as the Twin Towers in New York City crumbled to the ground on that fateful morning. All around the world, people watched as planes crashed into the ground in Washington D.C. and Pennsylvania. The world stood as one in front of their TVs in shock as the most massive terrorist attack in US history flashed right before their eyes.
September 11, 2008. 7 years later. The entire world remembers.

They attacked our Country. They attacked our Home. They attacked our Families. They attacked our FREEDOM. And We Will Not Forget.
Our soldiers fought hard for our Freedom. Our soldiers now fight harder to protect what they earned. Our soldiers have spent years away from their loved ones, away from the comforts of home. Our soldiers continue to need our love and support. Until our home is safe again and until every soldier is in the arms of loved ones or honorably placed to rest in US soil, we give our support.

The American flag flies today, in remembrance, in honor and in thanks to all those who have fought to protect us and keep us safe. The flag flies today to support those at home, praying for the safe return of our soldiers. The flag flies today to remind those who attacked us, that you can attack our buildings and our land, but you cannot attack our spirit.

God bless this land that I love.
