We spent most of the day Saturday and all of today out at the ski hill. Doodle Pants learned to ride the T bar and went down his first "real run" besides the bunny hill and I got to test out my new snowboard while we both gave up keeping up with Chester! Yep, you heard it, I decided to get one and just do it! As of last weekend, Doodlepants had been reluctant to even think about going up the chair lift and was sticking to the bunny hill. Okay, I thought I won't rush him. Meantime though, the bunny run was getting a bit old for me, so I decided to get me a board and play around with it since I had to be hanging out at the bunny hill anyhow. So, I tried it out Saturday and a few runs again today - I did pretty good all things considered and didn't make a complete fool of myself, but my bottom is just a bit bruised. Since the last thing you want to do on a board is face-plant, you tend toward leaning back a bit and that means that every so often you land hard on your behind!!! Ouch! Just figures that today, Doodlepants declared he was ready for the t bar - he says he is doing the chairlift next weekend - I had figured on a few weeks of boarding on the bunny hill, lol. Okay, so I can do it on skis, but if I ever want to snowboard again I had better get it quick!
On to the crafty stuff! Here is the card I made for the arrival of Donna's little guy - this one was signed by everyone who went in on the group gift we organized. I really enjoyed working with these fun papers!
And here is the inside.
Using the same papers, here is the tag I made to go on the flowers that a couple of us sent when he arrived. I apologize for the "not so good" photos as I was in a hurry and had to take these at work where the lighting was less than adequate.
And here is the back where we signed our names. Stay tuned for more baby-themed items.
I hope you are managing to EMBRACE WINTER, whatever that may mean to you!
As for me, I think I'll take a couple of advil and head to bed! Fresh air makes you soooo tired! lol
