Today I am 43...............


I am blessed to have so many friends through my blog. I wish I could give out hugs to everyone. I talked to my SIL Cathy about my niece Aaryn's new baby. Sweetpea Alora is hanging in there. She has already been thru 2 surgeries. Since the intestines were so swollen, they are doing 2" of intestine at a time. We are very lucky that only the intestines were affected and not other inner body parts such as liver, stomach, etc. So praise God for that! I wished they lived in GA. ( Oh Kyle, ya'll would have free babysitting any time if you'd bring our girls back home! :)

Today has been a very laid back day. I even took a nap! I didn't have to go no where. My sister Judy and her girlies came over yesterday for early birthday lunch. She took me out to P.F. Chang's for lunch. I had shrimp, Judy had tofu! Eek to my taste buds! You have to give me a little credit though, I tried it out, but spit it out on the sly! hahaha

Tomorrow is baby quilt buying day. I'm heading to the quilt shop to get some material for Alora's baby quilt. I started a tradition that I make every new baby in the immediate family a baby quilt. I feel safe starting her quilt.

Look what I got from Heather who is my SBBC secret birthday fairy kind of thing. I adore SB, and I got this cute little Flag to stitch. I love patriotic things, so she did good! She also told me to look for another package in the mail! Man, I must have been real good! wahooooooooo!

Alright friends, it's getting late. I need sleep!

ps: From the bottom of my heart, I'm blowing kisses and hugs to all my friends that take the time to comment or email me. "Without our friends, our lives would be ever so lonely."

I hope the baby continues to recover from her surgeries. And HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU !!!!!! I'll be 43 in August, YIKES. Email me if you want to know about the digi scrapping...they have these great "premade" template albums that you just plop the photos into. If you know a bit of photoshop, you can certainly do it very easily!
