It's Done

At 5:45 p.m., I submitted my application to be considered. I submitted cards 2, 3, 4 and 6. I will hear from them by the 27th. There are only 3 spots open, but I wanted to try anyway. Wish me luck.

Card #6

One of the things my DH and I are involved in is the Host Family Program with our church. We "adopt" college students and have them in our home from time to time while they are here attending school. Through the years, we have hosted nearly 50 students. This card is for a former set of students who have since married and moved away. They recently welcomed a daughter. I love how this card turned out. What do you think?

It's official....

One of the things I have always wanted to do is join a design team. So, without further ado, I am going to apply for one. I don't know how I'll do my first time out, but I think it would be awesome for a stamper like me who is not a professional or a sales person to do it. I will keep you posted on the out come.

I will post the pics of my enteries here, so watch for them.

Ice, Sleet, Snow storm of 2010

We were expecting a huge snowstorm, but as usual the weatherman got all mixed up. We were told to prepare for 6-12 inches of snow and instead got 1" of ice, 3" of sleet and 3" of snow. We ended up making a place in the backyard we could sled, snowboard, and fall down! We used a giant jelly roll pan to sled and snowboard on.

Ari going down on her knees. She tried snowboarding but ended up falling pretty hard. She decided that she was closer to the ground if she was on her knees.
Daddy attempting to snowboard. He made it down once, but fell on the second try.
Connor did ok snowboarding, but like sledding down on his rear the most.
Hunter was an excellent snowboarder until he got tired and then he couldn't do it and spent some time in his rooming because he kept crying!
This is the only way Connor will ever hit Ari with a snowball---through a window!

Because of the snow, we were limited on family. My step-dad arrived safely from Hinton and we had some friends over, but most of our family couldn't make it to our house.
