Baby Update

Jamie went to the doctors yesterday. The doctor said the baby is measuring 29 weeks. She really doesn't have that much longer before this little guy is born. He seems to be doing well, growing big. Jamie has started some early contractions. This is not new for her, as she had early contractions with 3 of the 4 pregnancies. The doctor told her if she starts early labor with this baby she will have to stay on bed rest in the hospital. They don't want to take any chance of her not being able to deliver the baby at the right hospital. The bad news is life expectancy for this type of heart condition, Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. That is unknown at this time. The patients that had the surgeries are only in their twenties. This does not sit well with me. But we can have lots of hope and faith that they will develop something to help them live a long life.
The doctor told Jamie that the left side of the baby’s heart is basically scare tissue. It has shrunk much smaller then the right side of the heart. They will have to do surgery when he is born to keep him alive. They will expect to keep him in the hospital for 5 weeks after he is born. We hope that you will keep our grandson in your prayers.

Still snowing!

Still snowing and they closed the freeway and my husband got stuck
down in the valley and can't get home!
I love the snow, but it's not to fun to drive in.
Maybe we will have a white Christmas!

Snow in Sunny California

This is the nice surprise we woke up to this morning. What a way to celebrate the Christmas Holiday. We rarely get snow and when we do get this much snow they usually close all the schools. I know don't laugh. But in Southern California this is unusual for us. We love though! Now I just hope my husband will be able to make it home through the mountain pass.

Make a Wish

Lots of chipboard on this card. On the chipboard ribbon slot I attached the same pattern paper that I used as the background, I also sanded the edges. The label holder I applied chalk black ink then attacked to the top of the ribbon slot with glue. I used my cropAdial to punch holes for the brads. On the round chipboard I used a metallic marker then inked the edges with chalk black ink and stamped it using scrappycat clear stamps, these are great stamps!

Smile Card

Here is a card that I made using metal corner embellishments. For the chipboard I used a chalk ink pad. The colors I used were blue and black and white. I first put the blue ink on and blended the edges with black and then added white to the edges to soften the black. I edged the brown cardstock with the black ink. I also edge the pattern paper with brown chalk ink. The string is a waxy string, which is nice because it doesn't slide around on the cardstock.

Zoofari Again

Since I have 9 grandkids I can say I will get some good use out of this Stampin Up set! For the background I used a Versamark pad for the Kitty stamp and then I used a sponge dauber with a brown stamp pad for the round dots. I wanted the Kitty to be really shinny so I stamped the image with a stazon ink pad then colored in with markers, I covered the image with my versamark pad, added embossing powder then heated it with my heat gun. Now the whole Kitty is shinny Ü

Since when did I say she can grow up?

It just seemed like yesterday that we had Kelsey! now she is 19 and all grown. She has been such a blessing in our lives! She is busy, busy, busy. Work, college and friends. What a life Ü

Ezekiel and Mia

Ohhhhh, aren't they so cute! April sent me this picture of her two sweet little babies. Boy do I miss them! I can't wait to see them again.
