First up: Charlie #1. The kitten we first brought home before the shelter told us they mixed up the kittens. This little guy was already paid for by someone else and his microchip number was not the same as the one we signed for. If it wasn't for that number, I would have said tough. It wa hard giving him back.
Here's the Charlie we ended up with. He's from the same litter and he's way more active. Although not the kitten we first brought home, he has earned his spot in our family. We love him.
I adore this picture of Charlie. When I caught him playing in the bathtub, I grabbed my camera and had some fun.
I have two Thomas fans now. Too bad they don't share that well all the time. Poor Charlie gets yelled at most of the time.
And one last layout of my Monkey. I love these Pebbles papers so much. The colours and adorable designs. I have good size scraps from my DT kit from The Scrapping Bug, but I still ordered a few more papers. Just too cute.
Until next time...

We had a fabulous time in Alymer and Ottawa, seeing friends and family. On the way home on Monday, we decided to stop in Kingston for the night. Here's where we stayed...
It was a nice place. Our room was nice and clean, the bathroom was pretty and there was a water park inside. Too bad this was our view...
But we got a good price on the room, so we weren't about to complain. We were only there for one night.
I have a couple more sneak peek loves...
Bella Bvld has really caught my attention this time around!

From Prima...A little on the frilly side, but I love the colours!
Crate Paper...Although very frilly for me, there's something about these pieces that are just calling out to me. I know I could come up with a way to use these. I'm thinking lots and lots of layering and clusters.

Update on Steve: He's resting right now. It looks like he's trying to hide a baseball in his ankle. It's so swollen. The radiaologist was not in last night, just the tech. Steve's foot is fractured. He can walk, but was told to stay off it. We're awaiting the radiaologist's call today to find out what type of cast Steve will be getting.
Steve's weekend of paintball has been canceled. He's also home with Monkey and I today.
Until next time...

Tonight, I am forcing myself to stay up.
Steve came home after baseball asking me to call my parents. I asked questions on the way to the phone. He slid into a base, heard sometime pop and then felt the pain. The medic on site thinks it's a possible fracture. He can walk on it; but he could also walk when he broke his leg around four years ago.
My mom was going to come over to watch over Monkey, but my dad said no. He came over to take Steve to the hospital so I wouldn't have to be there myself.
I'm now awaiting their return. They've only been gone for an hour, so it might be a long night.
It's a hospital week for our family. My grandmother went into the hospital yesterday. Steve today. And my mother will be at one tomorrow. Grandma fainted and hit her head on the way down. From what I hear, she's going better, but for how long? Steve, just a trip in to see if his ankle is broken or what. Mom is going in for a brain scan. She's been complainning about headaches for a couple of months now. Since she's had lung cancer, her doctors are taking no chances. She's getting the scan to rule out the possibility of brain cancer.
What a downer post!
Postive side of things...Baby Nugget is growing well. I was getting horrible leg cramps, but my doctor gave me calcium pills to take before bed at night. Two nights down without a cramp. Yay!

From My Little Shoebox:
Love the wood grain I'm seeing here. And the blue is to die for! So nice and bright. Awesome for my Monkey!
