Catch up post

I can't believe how busy I have been lately. I have badly neglected my blog, so I am going to do a quick catch up. So it's not too long and boring, I'll do the dot point thing.

* Baby Cooper is doing well, although he has a little bit of jaundice. They should be hom in a couple of days. Still no middle name yet.

* My brother-in-law has become engaged to the lovely Leanne.

* Marcel and Belinda were here for Christmas which was nice, and they brought Tim Tams with them. We tried to make lunch as close to home as possible. We had a ham, although we had to cook it first. No ready to go hams over here. Lucky I read the lable. Could have turned out badly. It certainly looked cooked.

*Kyan loved his presents. He now has enough train pieces to fill up his entire bedroom.

* I went to my first real life crop yesterday with my new Scrappy Giraffe friends. I met Molly and Kat from the SGK DT and the lovely Rosa, as customer of Kat's. Was lots of fun, although we got lost coming home. We made it safely, albeit very late. Poor Kat still had to drive all the way out to Long Island once she dropped me off.

* We cropped at Molly's house. She is so so sweet, and has the best accent.

* I have a new online class being announced at Scrapbook City in the next day or so. It is a BTP class. Would like to see lots of people there.

* Sara and I have been working on another project for Scrapbook City. More clues coming to your email box very soon.

* Still no snow. It's cold but certainly not freezing.

Here are some pics:

And this is from the crop. These lovely ladies are Molly and Kat.

Hey Leish!

Glad you had a good Christmas and the ham didn't end in disaster. Did you go to Times Square for New Years? Probably too late for Kyan...:-)

Must have been nice to meet your new friends the New L/O's!

Looking forward to the NEW news coming soon from SC!!

Hi Alicia,

I am glad that you had an enjoyable Christmas and New Year. I absolutely love your layouts and can't wait for the next SC Class. Hopefully I'll make it online for this one.

I love your layouts.. You never cease to amaze me girly. Glad to hear Baby Cooper is doing well. :)

BTW..I am so envious that you guys get to crop together.

OMG Alicia. I can't believe how grown up Kyan is looking. He seems to have crossed that baby to toddler line. Still a most handsome little man. Give him hugs for me!!
Congrats to all on the new addition to the family, he is adorable!

Sara said...

Certainly seems like you have been busy. Loving the layouts as always!!
