Hello February!

Well, I have a lot going here in my home. So, blogging has been the last on my mind as well as crafting...ack!

This morning at 4:45 am, my family & I said good-bye to my mother and father in law. Today they moved to Missouri, that is about 24++ hours away from us here on the east coast. We are the last of our family to live here.

It was one of the hardest things to see them leave, not only are they my kids buddies, but also a help when it comes to babysitting. I found a new babysitter for the wed that they watched the kids and today they said they really won't be able to do it. Back to square one!

So, these past few weeks have been pretty hard. My youngest son, was(is) very attached to my mother in law, they were always buddies, I suppose but it seems this last year they really got attached. So, seeing him cry every night, and just be so sad has been very hard. On the positive side, some of my online friends have been sending him cards. He has been so excited to get mail, and has now asked if he has any mail, and that to me sounds grown up.

Sarah, another online friend sent him a 100 min phone card so that he can call her anytime he wants, we don't have long distance, and I don't have a cell, so he is limited on calling her. NOW, he can call her when ever he wants. Thank you Sarah!

Penny, sent him a card from England, I don't' think he knew how far it was or that it was another country till I "splained" it to him! (he's only 8)

Pam, the one in only sitequeen at the stamphaven site also sent him a card. They are all so pretty and he has enjoyed them!

Another darling friend to me Louise, sent me a surprise rak, with the most gorgeous comes the stinking tear.... she wanted to cheer me up, and just thought I could use them. I can't even begin to tell you what that means to me. I just got so overwhelmed when I opened the box. How can a technically stranger care for me so much.

What that tells me is she is a loving women who listens to God, and I wish her many blessings this year!

Ahhh, well lets see, I can't seem to find my camera but when I do I'll share some pics.

I'll be glued to the TV for the Superbowl, I am from Pittsburgh so GO STEELERS!

Thanks everyone for your virtual hugs, and totally awesome prayers, we here feel them and welcome them!

God Bless,

Hi, Dawn! What lovely, thoughtful cards and gifts. I think sending a phone card was a fabulous idea. And it is so nice that someone thought of you, too, while you're busy thinking of everyone else. Thinking of you and wishing you and yours all the best! :-)

Dawn, I'm so glad to see you were blessed in so many different ways!
(And I think I've known you long enough to not be considered a!)

(((HUGS))) to you honey! I know you are still missing them! I'm thinking of you!

Thank you card!

This is a super quick and easy card today.  I love how The megaphone comes out of the paper.
