What a week....

Hi guys. 
     I have to tell you that I have missed everyone this week.  As most of you know by now the M&Ms will be graduating from 8th grade in just a few short weeks and that has made for a very hectic schedule on top on the one that I already have. lol...
     This week has been a very Very VERY BUSY week for the four of us and I am not complaining in any way at all.  :O) 
     I just happened to be on the 9 to 6 schedule this week, so that means I get home between 6 & 6:30pm depending.  No problem, except when I have to go get both the M&Ms haircuts for Tuesday and go grocery shopping on top of that.  Needless to say we didn't get home until 9:30pm Monday night. 
      Tuesday Mitchell had the last of his choir concerts and I am so happy that we were able to have both the M&Ms' Grandparents and Godparents come and enjoy it.  We kept that a surprise until that night and boy were my M&Ms happy.  :O)    We also went and had dinner afterwards and I have to say that I am sorry for how loud we all were, but we were having a fun filled old fashioned GREAT time together.  We were so so loud, and it was super super fun to have the time with family.  However we didn't get home until after 10pm, and our Mitchell is usually in bed and sound asleep at 9:05pm every night.  However we didn't complain as their Godparents still had to drive another hour or so to get home.  Mind you we all work and get up at 5 or 6 every morning.  lol.. It was so worth it though. 
     Getting through Wednesday was pretty easy with the exception that the hoses to the pool decided to spring a couple of leaks and of course needed attention right away.  We ran over and purchased a new set. new ones.  Thank goodness they don't cost too much, but the water is still sitting at 60 degrees, and you have to get your hands in the water to connect it all before you can even replace the hoses.  (I ho) I am relieved that the pool is up and running yet again.  Now all we have to do is get some warm to hot weather and we're good to go.  :O) 
     On Thursday the baby cats had to go back to the vet for their check ups and shots.  The good news is that it will be a whole year before we have to go again. (Well, without any emergencies..)
     By the time Friday came along we were all so tired and cranky that we decided to sleep in (8am) before we headed out for our walk this morning.  It has stopped raining once again and so far the sun is shining, so I am a happy girl.  It was so nice to be able to walk and not have the wind for a little while.
     Sorry for going on and on, it just feels so good to post something.  While I was super busy I did manage to make 18 First Communion announcements for my Cousins' nephew.  I always worry that they won'[t look nice enough, but by the time I get my design made up I find it kind of relaxing to make multiples of the same thing.   I have 10 graduation cards to make this weekend, and I am hoping to get a few extra cards made along the way as well.  I hope that you all have a great weekend, and I will talk at you later.
Hugs, Lisa G

I just wanted to share this card with you all.  I actually pulled out my Cricut and used it to cut out the crosses.  I then used my Copics to make it look like gold paper as I had none. lol... Jerry was nice enough to help me with cutting out 18 of these Spellbinder Labels Seventeen.  He saved me some time and I am very happy with how these turned out. All I had to do was emboss them.  Thank God for good husbands.   I would love to show you the inside as it turned out just as pretty as the outside, but it has specific info that I don't think the parents would want me to share.

What a pretty card the simplicity!

Isn't it amazing how quickly our "to-do" lists can fill up and consume so much of our time?!! I hope things slow down a little for you next week and you find a little time to do a few things you like to do!

You all have been very busy!! I'm glad you got to hang out with family and be loud. That just makes everyone around you envious that they can't join your party! hahaha!

Love the card! it's so hard to find really nice and clean designs for 1st Communion or baptismal cards and yours is lovely. I'm sure your cousin will love them!
Take care and have a nice "relaxing" Sunday!
