Making Progress / Weekday Fun

For the past week I have been stamping away, and re-stamping for that matter. I've been diligently working on The Wedding Invites but I'm ready to throw that stamp out the window. I've used probably twice as much paper as I need because either the stamp doesn't land where I want it to (I guess my fault) or it smears (maybe my fault too) or it doesn't stamp all the way (OK, all my fault, but still). I'm about 3/4 of the way done. It's coming along nicely, though. I'm glad I gave myself plenty of time to get these done. Here's a little glimpse of what the aforementioned stamp has been up to...

In between all the stamping we've been taking advantage of Mike's time off. It was actually warm enough to go to the beach a couple of days ago. It was about 80 degrees, but the water was fuh-reezing, the kids didn't care. Drenched from head to toe, they had a blast.

And we did a little bowing, too. Nathan's getting pretty good. We almost don't need the bumpers anymore (but without them, I don't think I'd ever break 100). Then there's Ryan, kids got determination...

(BTW, this is taking FOREVER to upload.)

(Seriously? I almost want to click Cancel, but Ryan is just too cute. C'mon!)


  1. Goog luck with that order. I'd have been in tears already if I were you! Keep up the good work :)

    Psst...I wouldn't be able to break 100 even WITH the bumpers!!!

  2. That was the cutest thing I think I have ever seen Ryan do!!! He just went for it with those big bowling balls!!! I loved it, I was cracking up!

  3. ....And I love the Wedding Suite!

  4. I can't get enough of that baby!! He was so determined to bowl like his big brother!! That was so cute!! Grama

  5. I bet your kids had a blast in the water! It's great to have found your blog!
    Isn't it wonderful to meet such crafty people in the blogosphere?
