Today my baby turns 1yr old!!

We are having family and friends over to celebrate with cake and ice cream, just a small group, nothing too big, I don't want Ryan to get overwhellemed (however you spell that). 

It's been a few weeks since I have been able to scrap due to me being back to work soon as things are back into a routine, I'll be scrapping like crazy.

I'll share some birthday pics with you tonight when the little one is in bed!  I still can't beleive it's already been a year...Wow!  time sure does go by quick!

Happy Thursday!

Well, the week is almost over, which means that I am getting closer to returning to work from maternity leave.  I think that returning to work is going to be a good thing for me, you know, kinda get back to normal again (whatever normal may be) LOL.

Anyways, I am really proud of myself, I was chosen as a guest designer with Simply Scrapping, I didn't expect that to happen, but I feel quite happy about it.  I usually have a tendency to shy away from doing things like that, but thought to myself why not give it a shot.  So this week I am going to be working on a sketch for next weeks challenge!  Can't wait to get started, hopefully tonight I can finish it up and submit it to the Design Team.

Anyways, I did a few things last night, a LO & Card.  The LO I did for my oldest son, since I don't have many with him in it, he won't let me take any pics of him, but I do have a few pics that I plan on scrapping.  The other thing I did was a card, that I will give to my mom for her birthday which is coming up next month.

I did this LO as an outlet to how I was feeling at that moment. I know there are many spelling errors in the LO, but hey, that's life, I wasnt' thinking of the spelling at the time that I was creating this LO.
I do love this little guy!! I mean I love everything about him right down to his little toes!!!

Ryan is such a little nudist, he loves to crawl around bare soon as you get him undressed, he usually tries to take off crawling!

I love you my sweet little prince!

I'm not crazy for this LO, I don't like how the background turned out, I was trying to play with paint on the background.  I'll eventually figure out a style that I like.

Well, we have been quarantined to our house due to the H1N1 virus, we are all sick (except hubby).  It's not a fun flu to have, you feel so tired and drained all the time, but after a week I am actually feeling much better and I can see that Ryan is starting to feel better as well.  My oldest son Keith is starting to come down with it too, so I guess another few days of being stuck in the house until we can venture out again.  I really dont' want to infect anyone else with this bug.

Only a week left!

Well, time has come for me to make all my plans to return to work, as much as I would love to be a SAHM, I just don't have it in me. I love my little man like crazy and so glad he came into our lives when he did, but I do need adult interaction.  It's a hard decision to make to return to work, but it's one that has to be done...I know I'll cry a few times after dropping him off with the sitter, but I know he's in good hands.

So how much sleep does a person really need!! I've been running on about 3 hrs per night, today I feel totally exhausted, like I got hit by a Mac truck.  I guess that's the fun of having a baby in the house...I'll sleep when he is 16 LOL

I should be posting more often, but these days I just don't have the energy. I'll try and do my best to post more of the LO & cards that I have made recently.
