Wow! It has been way too long!

I can't believe how long it has been since I have last posted.  SO much has happened in my life!!  My husband and I welcomed our fourth child on September 25th.  Elise Christine was 7 pounds 6 ounces and 19.5 inches long.  She is just perfect!  (except for a bit of colic, but I think we are turning the corner on that one!)  Allison, our 6 year old jumped off the swing in our back yard and broke her elbow when Elise was just one week old.  She ended up having surgery and got 2 pins put in.  Her cast comes off at the end of the month along with the pins.  My husband had been laid off for almost 11 months and got a job last Friday!!  Thank God for this blessing!  This has been one action packed maternity leave to say the least! 

I have not had much time for crafting,but did get a chance to make a card tonight.  I used this adorable new Angel Cake designed by my beautiful friend Heather.  She owns Fresh Brewed Designs, and is having a DT call right now for her amazing company!!  The papers are all SU! and the Sketch is the current sketch over at Sketch Saturday.  Thank you for spending some time with me!!  I am looking forward to making some more cards and getting back to the blog world!

Girl I love you!!! I hope you know that!!! And I have said it already... but WOW!!! OK, Supermom ... what are your secrets? I know that one of them was prayer, faith and trusting in God that he had his hand on you all, and he does! Praise God for all the things he has worked through for you all. I got chills reading it (again) and knowing that through it all he makes a way.

Elise is PRECIOUS!!!! Oh my how sweet she is!!!! and your poor little one with the broken arm. I felt so badly for her!!! I hope she is feeling better. I saw in the pic of them all asleep together in a row, and her little cast up over her head. It made me do the pouty smile.

I LOVE LOVE your card. I know I said it already on CDAC... but girl, you really rocked it. I am glad you had crafting time and was able to get crafty again. :) It is weird how time escapes you and when you do get to create it is like WOW!! :) lol.

I am starting to sound loony. I need to NOT comment in the morning when I am all hyped up on my coffee :)

Lots of love and hugs to you sweetie!!!
