An Award and a New Layout

First off, I want to thank Dorthi for giving me this award! What a sweetie! And after I've had this blog for such a short time!!

I would like to pass it on to


Things have been a little crazy around here. My two girls have had what is presumed to be H1N1 - I took my oldest girl in to the dr. yesterday, because she had it last week, and it appeared to go away, and came back. Everything I've read says if they have it, and it goes away, and symptoms come back, they need to be seen... so she was. And they said it's likely just swine flu. They are not running tests anymore, because, frankly, they have very few left, and most that they've sent in were positive. The youngest is feeling better now, thank goodness!
Then, yesterday, my 12-year old boy landed wrong while jumping in gym class, and hurt his ankle. The teacher told him to "Walk it off." When he got home, his ankle looked like a tennis ball. I took him to the doctor this morning, and he was diagnosed with a severe sprain. Poor guy had to go through the rest of gym class, and the rest of the school day limping around like that. My husband exchanged a few words with the principal this morning... : ) I have to take him later to get fitted for a walking boot that he has to wear for two weeks.

Anyway, in the midst of all that, I have gotten ONE layout done (wishing for so many more!!) The baby got his first tooth recently, so I had to commemorate that! My plan is to make him a scrapbooked baby book - I hope to do that for all the kids eventually - sadly, I didn't do very well at filling the baby books for the last, well... 4 kids.... I know, BAD MOMMY!! Anyway, I have lots of pictures, and some things written down, so I think I can make them something pretty nice yet! But, here is my newest layout.

I love the Animal Crackers kit from DIGI_licious Designs! And I love the onesie that my sister got for the little guy, that says so well what happened on that day! I know in this small preview, you can't really read what the shirt says very well, but it says "Yay! My first tooth!" Take care!

Ugh, sorry about the swine flu. We had it too, in August. My poor husband has never been that sick. :(

Oh, and congrats on the tooth! :)

I think we have Swine around here - at least I do and my son just popped a fever this am. I hope your kids feel better soon! And UGH how awful for the teacher to make your son 'walk off' a sprain. I would have had a few choice words for the teacher and maybe even gone to the school board ... that's just awful.

Thanks so much for your nice comments on our collab, and I look forward to seeing more layouts!
