I've got a crush...

Who has this new Crush line by Teresa Collins? It is sooo stinkin' cute!! She's our manufacturer sponsor at CMK this month, so i've been having fun playing. These papers were perfect for this photo of Noah and Savanna next door - I just adore this photo!!Journaling for "Remember your first crush": Yours is Savanna and the feeling is definitely mutual! I love how she is looking at you so adoringly!

The CMK design team is doing Secret Santas, and my secret santa sent me this yesterday:
Am I lucky or what?? I got a big stack of yummy new papers, some Scenic Route chipboard, Prima's lollipop flowers, some bling and a Blackboard mini. THANK YOU Secret Santa!! I can not wait to play with my new stash!!

So, both my parents are retiring this month - isn't that exciting?? My dad's work threw him a big party yesterday, and my mom had a party thrown for her today. I'm so excited for them! Here is a picture of Noah and my cousin Kaela from yesterday:
And, of course, I can't leave my little girl out. Here is a photo I took last night after we got home while she was tending to her baby:
I can not believe she is going to be TWO next week!! This is our next few weeks: Chloe's birthday, Chloe's birthday party, Hanukkah, Christmas and then (hopefully) our New Years trip away with our friends. Crazy busy, but lots of fun! :-)

Hope everyone had a great week! Enjoy your weekend!!
