I got to stamp some today...Donald Duck Signiture Book Swap.

I can tell that I am not feeling my best and it shows in my pages today. I am not sure how I want to fix these up, but I am not that pleased with these pages for a swap that I am in.

There is one thing that I do like is my Donald, on this I used one of those mini fine point sharpies to have the cricut draw Donald for me (for those of you that want to try this, I suggest that you get out your scotch tape and tape a band around the sharpie because they are not thick enough to sit in the blade/marker holder, so I rigged it to be thicker so that it could draw). After the cricut drew it for me then I had it cut it for me as well but re-running it back through the cricut. Then I used my Tria Pantone and Prismacolor markers to color Donald.

It is hard to see in the picture (my zoom on my camera is not working at the moment) but the Yellow 6x6 page is stamped with stars in yellow and the Gray background is like a corrgated paper. Here is the picture:

Check out the pictures below of Grace, yes that is her sharing a push-up pop with LG! Gross!

Life is interesting to say the least...

That is something that crosses my mind when I reflect on this past weekend. My goals were to stamp and clean and get a lot of organizing done. Yesterday morning I got to sleep in with Matt, the first time in months and I woke to find out that I would possibly be meeting my nephew for the first time. I doubted it as we had hopes to meet him this past summer and it didn't happen.

To make a long and very detailed story My nephew Coy is 7 years old, 2 months and 4 days younger than Madelyn. His parents broke things off before he was born and then he was moved around and we lost track of them. In July we got a phone call that we had been waiting for for such a long time. Well around 11 yesterday morning I got to meet the little boy I had only seen a baby picture of. He was just an older taller version of that picture.

He looks just like Matt did when Matt was that age. It's amazing. He is a cheese lover like Matt, very in tune to video games like his dad. He loves to rough house like his dad and little brother.
When my brother in law brought his youngest son the house both Kayden and Coy embrassed like they had missed these each other all these years.

The kids were up until 2 am last night and we finally got them to wind down. It was a bittersweet moment when my father in law got to meet Coy as well with him being sick now. Today was another long day full of laughter and they just pulled out of here about 20 minutes ago.

5 cousins, it was great. Coy's mother has a total of 3 children, I got to meet his big sister Jocelyn and I only know her from pictures as well, but my brother in law cared for her like Matt does for Madelyn now. We haven't met Coy's younger brother...but was was interesting is that Coy now has 2 younger brothers, both with the same name, Kayden and Caden. We haven't meet Caden yet but when we do we will have 6 cousins under one roof!

Here are some pictures from our exciting weekend:

Just to catch you up from the last few weeks:
I wanted to take some time to post an update on here. I haven't really sat down to take the time to stamp or make anything creative with my hands in almost 3 weeks; a lot has been going on in a personal level.

Work has been on the rewarding side, as I am hoping to snag a position at the company that I am temping for. I have already applied for the 30 hour work from home position. This will be a great opportunity for me seeing that the gas prices keep going up!

I had a meeting at work, there was a meeting explaining a new bank that we would be working with and how that they will be filling 7-10 positions on our team. I am excited about this as this gives me a great chance to get a full time job. I also have to take the civil service test for the county sherrif's dept in April in which I will take because there is lag time in thier hiring process. I figure it would be something to fall back on if this new position does not fall through. I also got a call from Walmart to schedule an things are looking up in the employment arena.

Easter was good for us. The girls seems to have gobbled up their baskets of candy before we had gotten out of bed. They also had their easter dresses on and cover in chocolate by that time as well. We didn't get very many pictures of the girls so I will have to take some of them soon. I did have some pictures of the dyeing easter eggs. They each picked out their own dye kits from the store and got to color 2.5 dz each.

My mom came over for Easter, I think it was good for her because she doesn't see the girls often. Plus I made extra of all the meals and froze them for her so that she could take them home. I hate going over there and seeing an empty refridgerator and empty beer bottles laying everywhere. He roommates do not have their priorities is a greater necessity. My mom has an excuse the government expects her to live on 299 a month (my deceased fathers pension), and will not give her foodstamps until she goes to the GED classes they set up for her. My mom is the type of person that you can ask her "whould you like to get your GED?" and she says yes. With her disability her IQ is less than 70 and so she is very gullible and has little reasoning skills. Needless to say she does not drive and they expect her to use what little money she has for public transportation that will only get her to the classes as they do not run after 6pm....for her to sit in a class and zone out because she can not read and writes very would be a waste of her time and the teachers time. She could definantly use a tutor of sorts to work on some reading skills because she does have the ability to read a higher reading level than what she is now.

My father in law has made it through this week doing pretty well. Chemo started a few weeks ago and he was achy and was pretty sleepy for a few days. I am just glad that he has gotten meds to help with any nausea that he may have. We are also watching all the germs flying around her to make sure he doesn't catch one of the girls bugs. His next treatment is next week.

Matt is a month away from finishing his medics class! This is something I know that we are both ready for. I can not wait to hear the day that he is hired full time on a department!

I spent all of last week building my desk. A few bruises and scratched later and here it is:

I also got my my hair cut and highlighted this past week, the hair looks good, but my new picture at the top of the page doesn't do me justice!

Last but not least, who is not enjoying this warm weather?? Here are a few pics of the girls from this evening:

I hope to be updating with some projects that I have in mind! I hope you all stop buy soon to check them out!
