Getting ready to go

Well, sort of. I haven't packed a thing yet. I still have to finish the last ATC and I need to do a little cleaning before we go. The hamster's cage needs to be cleaned and I have a load (or maybe 2) of laundry to fold. But before I do any of those things I have to post to my blog ;)

I already did my morning scan through most of the blogs I read so I shouldn't be on the computer again but I probably will do another e-mail check and then maybe one more scan through the blogs and check the ones I missed. I need to get my fix because Mom is on dial-up and I don't usually go on the computer there because 1) it takes too long and 2) we don't usually have time anyway.

This is one of the cards we did at class last night. I just can't seem to get enough of Baroque Motifs and when I went to stamp the monkey I thought the flourishes looked like vines. The colors are Wild Wasibi, Close to Cocoa, and River Rock.

Here are a couple of picturs from the parade on Monday. I don't know if you can see it in the picture very well but I stamped "FJ" on Ian's shirt to make it look like Daddy's fire fighter shirt. In the front seat with Ian is a "carpenter giraffe".

Emma was supposed to ride in the wagon (which she usually loves!) but
because Ian had to go slow and the truck was kind of jolting the wagon she wouldn't go in it.

The sign on the side of the wagon is a piece of bristol board. I stamped the letters in Handsome Hunter with Headline Alphabet. The tools are stamped in black. It doesn't look like nearly as much work as it was (or I made it). I figured out the middle of each word and then started in the middle and worked my way out. There were balloons on the sides of the wagon but Emma didn't like them being stuck on there so they had to be removed. LOL!

Yesterday I mentioned the marker Emma had on her legs......this is why.

Ian loves it when I get an order because he sits in the box and colors it. Sometimes he just colors it in all over and others he makes them into cars and trucks. This time they both had to have a box to color. Next time I just have to make sure we have power so I can bath her after ;)

Hi Karen,
I asked you if (because you are in Ns now) brought the pics of the parade and you said, 'No' they are on my blog. So even though you are visiting now, here I am in front of my computer checking out life in Fredericton Junction, go figure!
