I'm still bumbling...

Hello friends! It's me! and yes, I'm still bumbling around :) I've missed y'all!
I was trying to catch up and finally realized that I just cannot do it... it was stressing me out, and with finally starting to feel better - I took a few days off and figured that it would be better to just pick up were I should be without worries :)

So here I am :) and ready to show you 2 cards I was able to finish today!

My lil Nicky turns 6 on Monday :) and we're celebrating small today (Sunday), going to see Santa, stopping in at Build-A-Bear workshop and his choice of lunch... later on small dinner and cake with family!
His "real" b'day party with more family, friends and schoolmates will be share with his lil bro next month ;) With all of this past years chaos, my boys missed out on quite a bit and we feel that they deserve a big bash for being such sweet lil boys - even at their age, they are so well behaved and patient! Our lil angels ;)

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!
I hope to be back on Monday morning with some of our b'day pics and RAKs :)
