The new catalog is out!!

YAY!! Stampin Up released the 2009 Spring/Summer catalog yesterday. It's got some GREAT ideas and new stamps in it. Best of all...they're all die cut! No more cutting out the stamps!! (Sammi's sad about this--she LOVED cutting them out for me. Silly girl!!) Check it out HERE and place an order 24/7 on my website. If you have any questions, let me know!!


I can't tell you how much we love this show! We love all the morons who think they're "good." We love the really good ones who make it through. We love everything about it!! I even have a bulletin board outside my room that I keep track of who gets voted off and such. It's so much fun to listen to the kids as they check it out each week; quite a conversation piece!! I can't wait for them to show Salt Lake!!

Happy New Year!

I can't believe it's 2009 already! We've had an eventful, stressful, relaxing, enjoyable time off. My mom had a stroke on December 12 which was horrible and scary but she's doing fine now. I'm helping as much as I can but always wish I could do more. Darn job!! Anyway, she's doing much better and we hope for lots more time with her.

We had a GREAT Christmas with all the kids. Bob and I bit the bullet and bought a Wii for our house.

We've had a lot of fun playing on it since Christmas (Sammi said we didn't buy it for the family...Bob and I got it for ourselves and "gave" it to them.)

I keep trying to play Mario Kart but the "hand--eye coordination" isn't what it used to be! The kids make a lot of fun of me because I tend to really "get into" my moves as I'm driving. At least I'm good for a laugh!! :) Oh well...it's fun!

I also got an iTouch! I'm so excited about it but I'm still trying to figure it all out. I really wanted it for playing music in the living room since we don't have a stereo or radio upstairs. I'm working on getting some nice speakers...and how to run it! (Just ask the kids...they know how to do it all!)

Hope you had a great holiday and are ready to go for 2009!!
