Happy Veteran's Day

I want to wish a Happy Veteran's Day to everyone who serves or has served in the military or is married to a soldier. Without them we wouldn't have this great country to call home.

Well, I knew it was going to busy weekend but man, it wore me out! It was so wonderful though. Both the girls did a fabulous job at their meets. Lauren had a little trouble on the bars and beam this meet but she knocked it out of the park on the vault and walked out with her first gold medal! Katie was just as successful. Although she was upset about getting disqualified on the breast stroke she did fabulous on both the back stroke and freestyle. She knocked 18 seconds off her previous freestyle time! I am so proud of both of them, not because of their success but because of their dedication, effort and amazing sportsmanship.

The visit with my parents was so nice but way too short. They didn't end up getting in until midnight. We had to be up 5:45 in order to get to Lauren's meet. I know they were just exhausted and everyone hit the sack pretty early on Saturday night so I didn't get to spend much time catching up. My mom, sister and I did get to do a little Christmas shopping on Sunday before they went home.

Oh...speaking of being busy, I got my Lime Tart kit on Friday and have been busy creating. The kit is absolutely fabulous. I got the Ala Tarte this month. I just love all the amazing Fancy Pants papers, the ribbon and rub-ons in this kit. YUM-O. The other two kits look awesome too. I wish I could share with you but I have to keep it under wraps for a few more days. How about a litte sneak instead?

Don't forget you can order the kits through Odd Bird Planet if you are in the US.
Well, I have a few more projects I want to get done. Have a fantastic day and thanks for stopping by.
