Fun Stuff

Here's a layout that I finished today. It was made with the awesome new January kit from The Scrapbook Stand. The papers are from We R Memory Keepers. They are subdued and look really cool in real life. Seeing them online does absolutely no justice. The alphabet letters are the coolest. They are made from thick chipboard and are double-sided. The photo was taken at the mineral hot springs in Thermopolis, Wyoming. We were visiting Clayton's family at the time. The funny thing is that Hayden wasn't potty-trained until the next month, so he had on a swim diaper and needed to poop. He was confused and whined to Daddy about needing to go. We had to take him out to the car and change him into a real diaper before he did anything. He was so pitiful. I felt bad for him holding it like that. It was great that he didn't try to do it in the pool (yuck!). Anyway, the photo is of Clayton comforting him on our way out of there. Betcha wouldn't have figured any of this out if I hadn't of told ya, LOL.

Oh, and just so you know, Shirley at The Scrapbook Stand R-O-C-K-S!!! Along with our design team kit, she sent us all the 2006 Autumn Leaves calendar and some Li'l Davis vintage wood shapes. Earlier in the week, she sent us all homemade caramels and candies from a gal on Willow Traders. I am so lucky to have the privilege of knowing her and being on the team!

Little does Hayden know, but Santa is going to be calling him tonight around 6pm. I cannot wait to see his face when he answers! That will be fun. We should be making some sugar cookies at that time for Santa's arrival. Then around 7pm, my neighbor Joanna will be placing a baggy from Santa's elves on the front porch. I told her to ring the bell and run. Clayton doesn't even know that I have this planned, so he will be surprised too. The bag has new Christmas pajamas for all of us in it and a note from the elves that says that the kiddos need to go to bed soon because Santa is on his way. I am so giddy! Could this day go any slowwwwer???
