A White Winter for us in Nebraska!!!

Notice the cars still covered! This was our street a few days after the snow storm. And this looks good compared to the day after!
Everyone kept getting stuck on our corner so Lance finally decided to snow blow the street as well!
Our house looks pretty good with a fresh coat of paint, snow on the roof, and such a pretty blue sky for a background! :)

Winter in Nebraska... gotta love it!

Santa poem

Twas the night before Christmas, I'm glued to the tree.
I’m wondering what Santa brought just for me.
Could it be cardstock or inkpads or lace?
Or some stamps, I said, with a smile on my face.
And that's when I heard him.....
"Hi Santa," I said
He replied, "You know...good girls should be in their beds."
"I know I should Santa, and now I've been caught.
But I was just so excited to see what you brought."
"Well, let's take a look in this room where you work."
He shook his head quickly, and left with a jerk.
I heard him exclaim as he put it in gear.
"You've got enough crap,
I'll see you next year!"

Made from the Heart....

Open and empty a can of your choice. (use a can opener that doesn't create a sharp edge). Fill the can with whatever you want! Ex. candy, lil' gift, etc... Using liquid glass, glue the can lid back on. Turn upside down and decorate your can however you choose! I used the backside of an Animal Cookie B&T sheet, White grossgrain ribbon, craft buttons, green embroidery floss, and Rub-ons!
What a cute, inexpensive gift for just about anyone!!!!!!

Baby Shower fun cont.......

Our last game was Baby Shower "Loving" Advice: Have everyone write a "loving" message for the mother and father to be on a notecard - giving them advice/tip for when the baby is born or during their last few days or months before the baby is born. Examples of this would be "Remember to enjoy the moments since they go fast, Get as much sleep as possible before the baby is born and when he/she takes naps, Make sure to take lots of pictures and keep up with a journal writing everything the baby does for the first time, etc. This can be a very memorable and touching activity at the shower as well as help for the new parents.

I created a flip book to insert these words of advice along with the pictures of each guest with Shell. Hopefully, it will be a great momento for Shell and baby!

The rest of the pics are of the guest and Shel :)
