Well, we made it home today!!! We named the baby, Arelia... James Paul was adamant that that would be her name. So it made the decision easier. He is a proud big brother! We are here at the house, if anyone wants to stop by, we are always here! I can not drive, etc for 2 weeks! Arelia really likes her new home, she has been awake most of the day, staring at all of her things, it is quite adorable.
Well, having the stomach flu was not conducive to being pregnant... I went into labor late Thursday night. I had her at 3:47 in the morning on Black Friday! I am in the Hospital recovering today... My Birthday... suppose to be out to dinner, and getting things ready for her birth... ON MONDAY... but she is here now, I will post pictures soon. Still haven't named the poor thing!
Just in time!!! James got his monster today! He had to stay home from school with the stomach flu :( So it was nice to have a little surprise in the mail. He really loves the monster that he created himself. He was excited to see all of the parts he picked out!!!!
Well... we just did the most fun thing!!! James and I won a Custom Monster from CurlyQ Cuties from Bloggy giveaways!!! As soon as the gift certificate landed in my inbox he was READY to build his monster. This is so fun for the little Monster lover... which my child is! I can not wait until his monster arrives in the mail... he also LOVES to get mail! So he will be thrilled. This is a 4 year olds dream!
Pink Poison is having a contest for BOYS! I read the directions to my 4 year old son, and he was REALLLLY excited to play! He really got into it!!!
Here is he is making his card... he knew just what to do! He chose the best mates set, and he said it looks like "Mom, Me, & my baby Sister, When she comes", he even stamped a sentiment... "you arrrr the greatest!" Afterward, he told me the card was for ME!!! The inside is a picture of Me, HIM and a shelf of stamps!!!! He knows what I love!
This post is not about politics... It's about my 4 year old son. He is amazing. He tells me today, while eating a dinosaur Peanut butter sandwich... thanks Renie... that he just watched Barack Obama. Oh really I reply. Yup, he says, he was on the news! Oh, I say. He then informs me that after that, something boring came on so he turned it.
Now I must say that I just love love love the way my son says Barack Obama... its all one word, and its super cute. He has also informed his father and I, that "kids picked the president". Gotta love Nick Jr. He has been very involved in this election process... he wants to know, "which team is ours." and how much points did John McCain get and how much points did the winner get?
He talks about it a lot, and the fact that he was watching CNN, listening to Barack Obama speak... just amazes me. The fact that Barack Obama kept his attention amazes me... not to mention the fact that we didn't even know he knew the name of our President Elect. We were trying to introduce the idea to him... we said... "Did you know we have a new President?" He abruptly replied... "Oh yea, BarackObama, Kids pick the President."
Pink Poison is finishing up their Card making Olympics tonight! Lots of fun! I didn't have the motivation to participate very much this week, I uploaded a few cards in the spirit of fun! I couldn't resist the chance to play with these fun stamps!
The new Anya's made their Debut today... well, they are available today. Get your hands on some fast!
There are 41 Cards here: (It's all I had time for, I also only used scraps for these cards - that was my own addition to the challenge, made it a little hard for me, but used up some of my scraps )
