Martha Stewart...or Bill Gates...I am not

Have I ever mentioned the time I thought it would be a great idea to handmake Isaac's birth announcements and our 2005 Christmas cards?

Probably not because I am likely suffering a touch of the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from undertaking such a task.

Because I learned my lesson in attempting to craft more than three invitation-type cards for anything, I recently purchased adorable invites for an upcoming shower I am hosting (or "throwing" as we tend to say here in the South). Let me preface this by saying, I am DELIGHTED to be co hosting this event for one of my dearest friends. DELIGHTED! Although I love my friend deeply, I do not love anything enough to reach the brink of insanity by attempting to hand craft cute cards.

E. and I purchased some great stationary today (this is actually the second great stationary purchased...but that is another post in itself). I sat down this afternoon all ready to print out my cute, rapidly produced invitations. I just finished these "super-fast" invites ten minutes ago (obviously there were child-rearing, dinner-preparation, bath-giving breaks in the span of that time). Technical genius I am not.

Because of such mental energy devoted to these lovely invites, I am simply leaving you with this nice park pictures from yesterday. Enjoy.

Also, someone please tell me when Evelyn morphed from a baby into an is just about breaking my heart!

They do grow up very fast. Great pictures as always.

What is that on Isaac's shirt?

His shirt says, "Motown"...which cracks me up everytime he says it!

If it helps any, I saved that famous Christmas card over which you slaved so hard. No, I don't have a shrine to your family or anything, I just can't let go of Christmas cards. Maybe one day I'll do something creative with them, like decoupage them on a lifesize Santa. ;-)

I know what you mean..I cried the other day when I packed away some of Nicholas' clothes (actually they were originally Patrick's-Gymboree is my friend forever). It all happens so fast. I am ready for about you???
