This is Dean and I
This is parents - my dads eyes are always closed I was pretty happy with half way open.
This Katie and Geramy - good friends of ours
My brother in-law Joe and his wife Stephanie (he spent way too much money) - but it was for a good cause! Bobbie and Casey - Dean's cousin and his wife.
I was so great to have such a support system - it wasn't cheap to attend this event and I just wanted to say thanks and I love you guys.
Besides raising all of that money - i had a dang cool exprerience - you'll never guess who i met!! The funniest part is that my husband is the one who recognized her - it was Lisa Bearnson and her family(if you don't know who that is (my family)- she is the founding editor of CK magazine). I almost couldn't do it - but i introduced myself to her - i had been in an article in one of their special issues for a crop that i did for CF a few years ago - they put a picture of Ethan and I and did an article about it - sooooo i introduced myself - i wanted to know why she was there!! She didn't know anyone with CF - just knew a board member - CK bought 2 tables (not cheap) and brought friends to attend. ALso during the live auction her husband donated a substantial amount of money to the foundation. I'm very impressed with her and her family - wow - she's amazing. So that topped off my night - she said to call her next time I did my crop for CF!! Well i have officially rambled way to much! Be back later - hopefully before the holliday - if not - Happy Thanksgiving!

Also did this one last weekend and submitted it to the Method Playground Challenge - to 'Dress it UP' so i got out the chipboard (i have way to much) and went to town. This layout is sooooooooo simple but it seriously took me forever to make those darn flowers - just covered the chipboard with PP, buttons, ribbon and pen. This is seriously my favorite face she used to make when she was 10-12 months old.
I'm not going to put up a few of the ones i did because i submitted them - which brings up some fun news for me - I got an email yesterday from Scrapbook Trends for one of my layouts for thier Embellish It idea book. Its a good thing they have the idea books because they won't give me the time of day in their monthly mag - hahaha!
On a personal note - i'm home alone with Ethan and Baylee - Dean took Mason fishing for the weekend - and i have to say - he's dang lucky he did (take Mason i mean). He's been gone so much with the bishop thing and hunting and......... i could go on - but i won't. So Mason was pretty excited and i think they will have a great time. Baylee on the other hand has a double ear infection and is hurting pretty bad - she won't let me put her down - its so sad - hopefully the antiobiotic kicks in and she starts feeling better.
Next weekend we have the 'Taste of Salt Lake' - a fundraising event for Cystic Fibrosis. We bought a table for 10 and have some friends coming with us - i'm pretty excited. They have wonderful restaruants and silent auction items. This year my friend Carey who also has a son with Cystic Fibrosis, helped put the movie together for the event. I sent her pictures of Ethan and she said that he is all over in it. I can't wait see it and to spend a nice evening out dressed up (which i never d0) raising money for such a good cause.

Me and Katie
Katie and Stephanie
I think we might even add an extra trip and make it 3 times a year - we had so much fun. I finished 5 layouts and will post them as soon as i get pictures of them.
Kids are still sick and i just i'm struggling with it. Baylee is so clingy right now - its hard - she literally wants to be held all day long and its driving me crazy. Hope she feels better soon. Dh and i actually went to dinner last night with the intentions of doing some christmas shopping afterwards and the babysitter called and said Mason barfed all over the place so we had to come home. He actually was just coughing so hard that he threw up - so luckily he doesn't have the flu. So i ended up ordering the kitchen that i wanted for Baylee online today - i dont have the patience to wait till the next time i don't have kids to go get it! This whole christmas thing gets to me - I JUST LOVE IT. Going to start on my Christmas cards soon! I even listened to christmas music in the car today - it was just baylee and i and i don't think she'll tell anyone. Love it.
