I had a wonderful life moment today, and I needed it worse than you can ever imagine. We had a very light day at work today and we only ran the call teams. The house supervisor called for a 2nd tech to come to OB and help with a stat c-section. I did not have one available, so I went upstairs to see what was going on. When I walked in the door, the physician on call said she had a woman in labor and the baby had gotten into distress and we had to go now. She said , you know how to scrub, come on and I did without even thinking. I have not scrubbed a c-section in years, and really only scrubbed to assist a few times in the past 10 years!! We delivered a big, healthy baby boy in about 12 minutes. It was cool!!! Mom was awake and she was great. She was thanking everyone for doing things so fast and helping her. It was a life moment for sure.
In honor of this little one, I posted this card. I did this several weeks ago for a challenge, but was waiting closer to Christmas to post it. I think today is the perfect day for it. The entire card is from the Everlasting paper packet from Close to My Heart. The other item on the card that is not CTMH are the baubles from Stampin Bella. The stamp and sentiments are in the Let Us Adore Him set. The sentiment on the inside of the card that you can barely see in the bottom right corner is the scripture Luke 2:12. The colors used are Cranberry, Ponderosa Pine, and Desert Sand. I hope ya'll have moments like this in your life. Take care and God bless ya'll!!

I would like to wish ya'll a wonderful, blessed Thanksgiving. I hope your day is filled with love and happiness with family and friends. I have been cooking all morning and this is my first break. We plan on eating with my sister-in-law at 1 and with my family here at 6 tonight. I am on call, but so far things are quiet. It is a crisp cool day her. The temperature dropped 24 degrees over night after a cold front came through. The ground is wet, but it is a beautiful day.
The card above is one I made for one of my daughter's friends 21st birthday. The inside says Happy 21st Birthday in black glitter letters. The cs and background paper are from my random stock. The bella is presentabella, and she is paper pierced with some of the random paper I have. The ribbon and flower are scraps and left overs from previous creations. Just a quick throw together, and not very Thanksgiving, but I thought you might enjoy. Have a great day and God bless ya'll.

I was in a swap called Bella/Fella with a twist. You were to take a bella or a fella and do a Christmas card. It was supposed to have a twist to it instead of being completely traditional. This is my version. I used CTMH paper packet-More to Adore with pink big brads. I used brown baubles as an accent. The ribbon is also from CTMH. I embossed the brown cs with my snowflake pattern in my Cuttlebug. I received my package this week and all the cards were great. Thanks to Shannon for getting this together, and to Venlanda, Ami, Korin, Cris, and Susan. I love all of the cards. This was a great swap.
It is raining here and pretty yucky. It has rained almost all day. I think the weather is supposed to be better tomorrow. I spent most of the day the cooking things the kids and hubby could snack on the rest of the week. They are all home for the holiday week. I started thawing my turkey in the fridge today. I am going to start cooking Tuesday for Thanksgiving. I hope everyone has a great week and ya'll are blessed with family and friends for the holiday. I will see ya later on the blog. God bless ya'll!!!!

http://susiestampalot.blogspot.com/ emailed me today to let me know I won her blog candy. Isn't that just great??? Go take a look see. It is really some good stuff. She has a great blog, and I really admire her style. I am so CRAZY though, I emailed her back and never included my address!! I just talked back to her and explained my stupidness. I have been on call a lot this week at work and worked late some of the days I was not on call and I am really sleep deprived. I am going to bed early tonight, and maybe I will be back to normal tomorrow. I am so happy to win this candy. I kind of consider it my 1st Christmas present--Oh and by the way if you have not realized Christmas is 37 days away!!!! Take care and God bless ya'll!!!!

Well, I am still feeling pretty yukey. I hope tomorrow will be better. I have got to get better soon, because this is not me--I hate to sit around and do nothing. I did venture to Wally World (Walmart) today and bought the kids some new play station tapes they had been wanting. Guitar Hero and Backyard Football. All my children and boyfriend have been in my little one's room since we got the tapes. They are really fun. Thanks goodness I cooked a large supper because I was not expecting all for supper. Ya'll take care and I will see ya later. God bless ya'll!!!
