Skipping Tilda

Well I did start off with this weeks SCS sketch challenge, but it didn't really turn out for me. I wanted to use one of my new Magnolia stamps I had gotten from Diana and had cardstock cut for a 5.25" square card (cause I thought it would better fit the size fo this image), the when I went to mat the image and such I cut right into my 5.25" card that I already had folded and ready to go...needless to say I was a bit miffed at myself and didn't feel like chopping up another piece of cs, so I just went with the regular 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card instead. I really love the sentiment from Aud Design and of course Tilda with the skipping rope and ball cap on backwards, she's too cute!!
We had a wonderful visit over at my sister and Jason's place yesterday. It was nice to finally see where she lives. She moved in with her boyfriend Jason in February, but we usually see them at my Mom and Dad's or here at our house, so it was about time the kids and I went to see them at their house. The kids had a ton of fun and of course didn't want to leave. I think they were both asleep before I got out of the driveway and then the whole time I got groceries, I carried Landon and he slept on my shoulder. He didn't even wake up at all when I took him out of his car seat, just slept right through everything. Likewise, he didn't wake again after I loaded everything into the Durango and put him back in his seat...tired little monkey, that's for sure. Kirsten was a great helper pushing the cart for's tough to get groceries with a 2.5 year old asleep on your shoulder:-)
We are having a couple of Lance's friends out today to vaccinate and castrate our calves, so I need to get a move on it and get some chili and goodies for lunch started:-)
Thanks for stopping in and I hope you have a fantastic day!

    Have to say i'm going off of you very quickly! ;-) Not only do you have a RV bigger than my house but now I read you have a Dodge Durango! We love this car and have hired it on both visits to Florida and hate giving it back. You should see us when we go shopping trying to squeeze everything and the two kids in our Ford Focus..! Big Hugs, Nikki x

    p.s. still haven't had a reply re: my HH 's order :-(

  4. Cute, cute cute! Kelly, I just can't get enough of those Tilda stamps! Love the papers, layout, and of course the adorable stamp. I have messed up, and had to re-do so many goof ups I definitely feel your pain. I'm glad you had a great time this weekend. It sounds like your kids were pooped! Holy moly I bet your arm was tired from carrying your little one around the grocery store. haha. Saturday, I held Cam while DH pushed the cart and my arms were killing me by the time we were done. lol.
