Lots happened since last post - hehe

Sorry it has been so long since I posted last. We made a surprise trip to Kansas to see my parents, and I couldn't write about it because I didn't want to spoil the surprise for them. My Mom had been upset that her 3 kids had not been all together with her in several years, so my middle brother set it all up and we shocked her when we showed up. It was great and we had a wonderful time. I left on June 19th and didn't get back until June 30th. Then with unpacking, the 4th of July and all - it's just been a whirlwind. Things seem to be settling down now and I'm glad to get back to normal - even though I did have a great time.

We took the kids to see the fireworks in Haltom City, and it was a fun time. I actually read the manual on my camera and got some good photos this time - hehe. I'll have to share them if I ever get them downloaded.

Saturday was a fun day. I got to spend the day with Amanda and we had a great time shopping, eating, and watching a movie. It was great to catch up and the day went by way too fast!! We ran into our friend, Bobbie, while we were out and it was so nice to see her and talk with her!

Then Monday, Kaylee and I had a wonderful "Mommy-Daughter" day at Miss Joni's house (our friendly neighborhood Stampin' Up rep - and our good friend!!!) We had so much fun visiting, eating pizza, making cards and boxes, and Kaylee even learned to use the watercolor crayons with blending pens. Joni was so wonderful to show her and give her a beautiful paper to color and a canvas to put it on as a birthday gift to her!! Thanks Joni - she loves it - and we had a day we will not soon forget!

I'm hard at work on my next kit, which is about cats. I'm more of a dog person, so this one has been a little hard for me, but I have some people who are really wanting a cat kit, and I'm up to the challenge. I'm really hoping to finish it this week, so we'll see.

Well, I still have some laundry to do and a kit to make, so I'd better get to it. I hope everyone is well and having a great summer!

~til next time (hopefully not so long of a next time - hehe)
