Total Randomness or Chaos...*whatev* :):):):):)

Hi everyone :):):):):):):)

It is FOUR days until we move.... wow... it seems like we have been planning this all year, and now its almost here :):):):):):):):)

Wanted to share some total randomness today :)

But, before I get started on that...I wanted to thank you all for the kind words for my Mom and her broken wrist.. I really appreciate it... a little update, she had to go back to the ER on Sunday night because the pain would not go away... and come to find out, she actually broke her wrist in TWO places and has to have surgery on it on Thursday... *sigh* so if you could say a little prayer for her... I would really appreciate it :)

Miss Brookie got her face painted at school last week :)



This is pretty much what my house consists of RIGHT now... lol :)


Pretty soon (REAL SOON!!) We will be saying good-bye to this number....

And saying hello to this one.....

And I wanted to share some layouts I made awhile ago using Nikki Sivils "My Friend Birdie"  and "It's Your Day" lines! :):):):):):):):):)











And speaking of Nikki Sivils... today is the day that I do my monthly "Showcase on YOU!" over on her blog!! I am totally blown away every month on the number of entries I get...and this month is NO exception...in fact, we had so many this month, I will be doing TWO posts for the "Showcase on YOU!" this month!! YAY! :):):):):):):):):) I would really appreciate if you would head over to Nikki's BLOG to see today's showcase!! I KNOW you will LOVE it... cause today... I am WAY giddy, as I had a FOUR YEAR OLD and a FIVE YEAR OLD send me projects (well, okay...their Mom's did...but still! LOL!) and I am proud to say, they are the YOUNGEST peeps I have ever showcased (before today's post, the youngest I have ever showcased was my friend and fellow Nikki DT member Deana's daughter Bryn!)



Thanks sooooooo much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :):):):):):):):):)

  3. I must have missed the post about your mom breaking her wrist...what a bummer for her. I hope it heals quickly! Looking at all those boxes brings back memories of all the moves I've made in the last 8 years. 6 to be exact. Each one is hard. I hope the transition and move goes smoothly for you :)
