I immediately thought of the Last Scrapper Standing contest and asked Tony if he thought it was a sign :-) Well, guess who found out today that she was one of the newest members of Create My Keepsake's Design Team? Did you figure it out yet, lol? I am so honored and thrilled beyond words right now! Unfortunately, however, two of the current designers left to move on to other things - Raechelle Bellus and Kate O' Brien (they both will be very missed!), and Danielle Flanders will now focus soley on CMK's card kit, so i'm glad she'll still be around! So, that means that besides me, CMK also added Emily Anderson and Shanna Vineyard to the team. Whoo! Did I mention how excited I am to be working amongst CMK's amazing talent? Thanks again to Lisa at CMK for making my fortune cookie come true, hehea!
Now, onto our weekend - it was fabulous! Tony worked on Saturday, so my mom came up to join me and the kids at a birthday celebration for our neighborhood... it turned 40! They had music and free food, and the kids had a blast! Chloe is such a music lover, it's the cutest thing. Every time the band would stop playing for a break, she would start frantically signing (and saying) more. Noah had a blast with one of the beach balls that was being thrown around - that kept him occupied for awhile. They also had free bubbles and 3-D chalk for the kids. And, bad me, I forgot my camera! Luckily, the press was all over the place, and Chloe is supposed to be in our local town paper and Noah is supposed to be in the Baltimore Sun. We'll see if they actually make it in!
On Sunday, we took the kids to the pool for the first time this summer. In our town, we can go to any of the n'hood pools - there are a ton of them. Some have "beach" entries, splash parks, water slides, etc. So, we went to one of the brand new splash parks. It was so much fun! Chloe loved all the ground and overhead water sprayers in the splash park, and Tony and Noah loved the heated pool. We'll definitely be going back to that one. Would you believe I forgot my camera again?? What kind of scrapper am I??
Today we had a playdate at a park - I was intent on keeping myself busy while the judges were deciding on the Last Scrapper Standing, lol. It was another fun day! So, although I don't have pics of our fun weekend events, I did snap some cute ones of the kids being all lovey in Noah's bed over the weekend:
I'm sure this shot will bring back memories for my mom, as I heard I always used to pull my brother's hair, lol!
And, finally, look at what my 18 month old decided she wanted to do the other night?? She has been fascinated with the potty lately when she sees Noah going, and she kept pointing to it. So, I pulled out Noah's old potty seat. She's so little that I doubt she's ready to train, but I think it's cool that she's showing interest. Noah was about the same age when he started casually sitting on the potty.
Hope everyone is having a good week!
