AK's Boo-Boo :(

Poor AK had her first real sports injury tonight in her pre-game warm up. She was in the batting cage and according to her, the ball "curved" at the last minute and she caught her thumb between the ball and good hard swing. I don't think I have ever seen a smashed finger look that bad! Poor little thing. She was so brave but I know it hurt so badly.

Fortunately, Brian T was on site to look at it for me and give me some suggestions as to how to drain the blood from behind her nail. However, about 30 minutes later, he had Ashley call me to say if we wanted to come over, that he had a tool at home and he would do it for me. So sweet!!!! We went right over and in just a couple of seconds, it was over and AK never felt a thing! I told her that now her thumb is like a little ghost with two "eyes" in it. She was so brave during the whole night. I don't think I have ever seen a child or adult handle a situation like that as well as she did. She is my hero.

It's Daffodil Time!

One of my favorite, if not the favorite thing about our yard, is the Daffodil crop that comes up each year around the bird bath in the back yard. And I am not the only one who loves them. The girls absolutely ADORE picking daffodils each year and that has been true from the time they were little. So, I wanted to be sure to get some good pictures of our daffodil harvesting this season.

Here is a layout I created using some pictures I quickly snapped the other day before school started. I used the March 2010 Treasure Box Kit to create this page. The fabulous Daffodil embellishment was created using the Daffodils Cottage Cutz die. This one was definitely a must have for me!

Are we in a parallel universe?!

I live in Alabama for a reason...not to have 6 months of Winter!!! I am so tired of being cold!! And not just a little cold. It has been absolutely FREEZING!!! I would like to think that since we have had such a miserable Winter that we should get a nice, mild Summer as a reward, but you know that is not going to happen!

In the meantime, cold days outside make for great scrapping time inside :) I have been making some cards using the cute Cottage Cutz Dies from the Valentines release.
