Well, last night I felt like stamping a little.. so I whipped up this little Cami Fold card. Just thought I would share. I like it.. it was really easy, which I liked even better, and I think it turned out sort of cute! I loved the colors that I chose! Coral, Apricot, and Celery!
And this is what I am reading now. I finished The Last Lecture, which was terrific! So I started this last night. I am not very are into the book yet, but it seems pretty good. I will let you know if you are interested...

Thought I would put an updated picture of my orchid.. More blooms.. It really is beautiful when it blooms.. I just love it!! The flowers will last for a good 2 months!
And this wouldn't be complete without a new picture of Gretel!! She is just so cute these days!! I just had to post another one!!

I got this book to read, I have seen the lecture, you can watch it here is the link http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=8577255250907450469I am sure that some of you may have already seen it. But if you haven't, spend the 12 minutes and let it sink in.
It makes you think about life, what you would do if you were told you were dying.. What is important to you...

Hannah was so excited today! We were getting ready to go to dance class, when she yelled, "There are ducks in the back yard!"Sure enough, we have 2 ducks living in the back yard! In the corner there is a fenced area that is filled with leaves, and the female duck was in the middle, I am guessing with a nest! I hope that no one bothers them, and we will soon have a little duck family! I wonder how Grets will like that!
One of Hannah's "fangs" is now history! When we got home from dance tonight, she pulled the little sucker out! One down, one to go...
Wonder what the tooth fairy will leave tonight!

I found the instructions on how to make this little scrapbook somewhere.. I think probably Splitcoast... anyway.. I have been working on it for about 2 weeks.. not that it was hard, actually it was very easy, but the finishing of it was the difficult thing. I just didn't know what embellishments I want to use.. so that is why it is blank on the front. When I figure out what I want to put into it, I will do the "self adhesive die cuts" or something on. But for now, I thought I would post what I got done..
I needed a thank you for "Grandma Sharon" from Hannah. She dropped off her belated birthday gift and a belated Easter gift on Friday, and I am a stickler for Hannah writing thank yous within days of getting gifts! So, I thought a butterfly would work, too! so I made this one! Same idea, only the wings are a bit different to make it a butterfly! So this will go out in tomorrow's mail with some nice wonderful words written from Hannah!

This is a picture of the snow we got the other day.. on our deck, I measured 3" at 4:30 pm.. it was still snowing hard, and I know that we had a lot more after that..
These are my orchid plant. I have had it for 18 years. My mom sent it to Pat and I for our 1st anniversary.. It was from the same grower who I got my wedding bouquet flowers from. I had over 100 phalaenopsis orchids in my bouquet. I am always excited when it blooms.. and the flowers last for a good 2 months or more. I am always amazed that it hasn't died in all this time, with all the moves and all.
As I was taking pictures of the orchid, Gretel the Greyhound was right there.. I think that she wanted her picture taken too.. so.. But look at her.. how cute can you be?? (I think that she wanted a treat really...)
Hannah and Pat playing Guitar Hero.. I think that Hannah won.. or at least gave Pat a run for his money..
