Basic Grey/Basic Gray Hi

I tell you, this de-hoarding is somewhat cleansing {lol}...look at this card...my new Basic Grey Ambrosia paper....Making Memories Shimmer Alpha....American Crafts Felt Flower and K&Co Adhesive Gem...no hoarding here!!! All piled onto my {current} favorite Stampin' up Basic Gray cardstock....I was sooo excited to tell you about my de-hoarding that I almost forgot to add that this is for the CPS 92 Sketch. I've been really enjoying the sketches over there...it's fun to see the various interpretations. There is sooo much creativity over there...I just {heart} it!!!

I thought I'd share some pictures of the birthday party that I went to on Saturday....This curly hair cutie pie would be the 1 year old birthday boy.....isn't he thee sweetest??!!! His Uncle {one of many} is holding him.


This would be the oldest in the family..."m" will be going to kindergarten next fall. I seriously cannot believe it....look at her chalk-y face...yes, Auntie Amy gave them chalk to play with...and bubbles...and books....stickers...

This is "m" {another "m"!}....she has become quite the chatterbox and oh-so-very-polite...happy as can be...all 3 kids.

We are soooo thankful for these beautiful and healthy kids...MY kids love them to pieces {and so do I!}!!! I didn't realize how much I missed these babies until I saw them on Saturday. Their Mom & Dad absolutely rock....we are grateful for both of them {sheesh Dad can cook up a storm!} and their fabulous children.
