Double Digits or I've Been Carrying a Diaper Bag Every Day for a Decade

Love this photo. It is the essence of my Bubba's life. Always surrounded by the rest of the brood. EVEN on his big day. My oldest turned the big 1-0. Yikes. How did THAT happen?!?

We spent the morning of his birthday at...wait for it... Bass Pro Shops at Christmastime. Every 10 year old boy's dream come true. There were guns and boats, and remote control trucks involved. Ahh, this is the life. The boy deserves all he desires and then some. This kid has it all. Kindness. Smarts. Brains. Humor. Mad athletic skillz. Empathy. Compassion. And boundless energy. Plus, he has my heart for ever and ever.

Here he is enjoying the fruits of my labor. (No, not that 20 plus hours of labor followed by an emergency c/s). The 5 am door buster labor I stayed up ALL NIGHT for on Thanksgiving.
He loves his new limited edition orange DSI.

On the scrappy side of my world, I have some last projects for Croppin Paradise to share. Croppin Paradise's store is still open with tons of new product coming in daily, but they have disbanded the DT there. So, my 12 months of fun designing with the scrapbook industry's latest and greatest have come to an end. You can still get all this great stuff (Basic Grey's Jovial, Dear Lizzy Christmas, Jillibean Soup's Chestnut Soup, Crate Paper's Restoration) there...

Still playing ketchup here, so check back soon for another fun update. Hope 2011 is treating you well.
