Not a good day yesterday:(

No matter how old your children are you always worry about them. Yesterday was one of those days. Michael (my oldest son for those that don't know) is a well-driller. I think it is one of the top 10 most dangerous jobs. There was an accident at work yesterday and Michael has a broken wrist and he lost the top of a finger. Someone was watching over him because he is lucky to be alive. He has a couple of appointments today so I will update here with more info when I get it.

On a happier note today is Dan's birthday. He is 19. Time sure does fly by too quickly. He also started college yesterday. He said it wasn't a bad day. Hopefully he will hang in there.

I sat back last night and listened to him telling Michael about his first day. Of course Dan comments that he will last longer than Michael did. LOL! But Michael's next comment stuck with me. He told his brother that he wished he had stayed and finished college because then maybe yesterday's accident wouldn't have happened. Hopefully that one statement will stick with Dan as well.

What a historic day ahead! Are you going to be watching all the events of the day? I am. I'll be in my scraproom with the TV on if you need me:)

Happy Birthday Steve!

Steve is celebrating his 51st birthday today. His day started early this morning with a phone call from Morgan, who proceeded to sing to him. Wish I was fast enough to record it on the answering machine.

We aren't doing anything special today because he is working into the evening. I did make him a birthday card. He always loves the homemade cards and is a very big supporter of my work. Gotta love him:)

Here I am!

I know I said I was going to get better at blogging daily. I'll get there...soon. LOL! I finally finished mom's calendar and thought I would share a couple of the pages. This was a kit and I just kept it simple- didn't really add anything extra.

We have some nasty weather headed our way- snow, sleet, ice, rain. I am hoping we are on the rain end of it but I'm not sure. I don't like driving in snow or ice and tomorrow I need to be out in it. My mom is having cataract surgery and I'll be taking her.

I worked on the BG calendar kit yesterday. It's really nice and I wish I had grabbed one for myself. This one is mom's. I'll share a pic when it is finished, which I'm hoping will be tonight.

I was emailing with my friend, Nanci, last night. She is planning her spring vacation so she can come for a visit. It will be great to see her since we didn't get to the Valley Forge CK convention last year, so it has been a while. I'm looking forward to taking her shopping at the lss here and taking a drive to the beach for my favorite pizza. She says it must be good if we drive an hour for it.

Zachary had his first basketball game last night. They lost by 1 but it was a good game.

Happy Sunday everyone. I see I forgot to post yesterday. I guess because we were busy outside taking down Christmas decorations. I did decide to leave the inside ones up for a bit more. I love having the tree up. I finally fixed the post from New Years Day so you can now see the pictures so take a look at Morgan. Thanks to Cindy from the CKMB for helping me get the picture thing figured out.

Last night Steve, Dan and I went with Brian, Lori and her parents to see Jeff Dunham. I was laughing so hard I had tears rolling down my face. If you have never seen his act you can catch him occasionally on the comedy channel. He is a ventriloquist with characters such as Peanut (my favorite), Walter and Achmed the Dead Terrorist.

Today is the big game so we will be watching for sure- Eagles vs. Minnesota. I know the Eagles can pull it off. Dan was a little upset last night because his team (Colts) lost last night in overtime.

I need to scrap today. Have to finish my mom's 2009 calendar. I know...I have been saying that for days but today is the day.

Feeling under the weather:(

About mid-day yesterday I started having some nausea. Not sure whether it's from a pain pill the doc gave me or a stomach bug. I'm guessing the stomach bug. I do feel a little better today so hopefully it was just a 24 hour thing.

I see that my links to photos didn't work so I have to figure out how to do that. Any help is appreciated.

This weekend we are hoping to get the Christmas decorations taken down.

Hope everyone is having a great day!

I hope everyone had a safe and fun evening last night. We spent the evening at Michael and Corey's. The kids had a great time playing the Wii. I actually played for the first time and we have had the system for a year. LOL! Morgan and Noah played a round of golf and a couple games of bowling. Morgan was a little upset that she lost the golf match but she got Noah back in bowling.

Today we are having the kids over for dinner and playing some board games.
