Mom and I also had a card-making marathon. Between the two of us, we made around 40 cards. Here are some of my favorites: As some of you may notice, we used a lot of the scraps from the little scrapbook on the cards. Mom cracks me up because she will dig the tiniest little scraps out of the trash to use. This is a great way to use up scraps and not feel like I'm wasting so much paper!
When I got back from my parent's, Chris and I had yet another birthday party to attend. We sure go to a lot of little kids' birthday parties, and we don't even have kids yet! I can't imagine what it will be like later on!
This party was for our niece (Chris's side of the family), little Miss Abby. She turned 5 years old and was BIG STUFF! She really was too busy to pose for photos.BUT, she was sure excited that we were there. She told me that she didn't know we were coming and it was a great surprise!
Watching little kids open presents is so much fun because they are so genuinely excited. Abby loved the My Little Ponies that Chris and I got her. Watching three generations of N men eat cake is also pretty entertaining. These guys are three peas in a pod with their mannerisms!Of course, it was good to see little Zeke again. He's sitting up and drooling a whole lot. He's still very mild mannered and laid back about life. Chris was down on the floor playing with him when it was time for his bottle. Cassie (Chris's sister) just handed the bottle to Chris and let him feed the Z-man. Chris didn't quite know what to do, but he managed. It cracked me up though! I think Uncle Chris could use some practice at the bottle feeding thing!Zeke didn't care as long as he was being fed!
My post Spring Break work week proved to be a crazy one as well! We had several big events going on, including our new Student Center dedication ceremony and our Centennial Celebration.
Joy Lin and I were happy to walk in front of the team with the Basketball Banner in our Centennial Parade!Last night was my monthly Girls' Night Out. We had cheese and dessert at The Melting Pot. Yummmmm!
Whew... and it's not over yet, but I'm exhausted, so I'll catch you all later :-).
