We are the Champions!!!!!!

It has been crazy busy around our household this past week! We finished up soccer for my oldest son, then both my boys had their Flag Football playoffs on Saturday....ALL DAY!!! Both boys' teams were in first place in their divisions going in, but sadly, my youngest son's team lost in the first game so they were out right away. My oldest son's team, though, KICKED SOME SERIOUS BEHIND!!! They won all three playoff games, then won the 'Superbowl' by a 20 point margin. It was not an easy win as it had been raining hard off and on all day so the grass field was muddy and slippery. My son got injured in the latter portion of the first half and was out the rest of the game. Another boy was off getting sick in a corner somewhere..I think he has a stomach bug cuz it just kicked in at dinner, I guess. Both boys are integral parts of the 10-man team but it's a testament to the coach to be down two kids and still pull off a huge win. Every single boy on this team does an equal share...it's a rare thing to find. I'm so proud of them all!



If you recall, I recently made an appearance at a local stamp store called Monkey Love Rubber Stamps. I did make-n-takes for 2 hrs for their Annual Holiday Open House. It was so much fun. Saw some familiar faces and lots of new ones. As promised, here are some more samples of what we made. I still have yet to take a picture of one of them. I hope to post some sneak peeks to my next class later today. I will have a class at Stampin In The Rain, at Bothell Country Village on Dec 8, doing gift tags.

Congrats to your oldest sons team on kicking some serious behind!! Sorry your youngest son did not have the same luck :)!

These cards are so cute! I just love that little penguin. I'm sad to say that he was not part of my Elzybells order, and I wish it would have been after all the cute cards I've seen made with him! Very adorable!
