Sorry for the break in blogging. This was a doozy of a week-- both good and bad. Let's see if I can sum up in a few lines:
There's stomach virus going around the city, and it hit us last week. Audrey got the worst of it on Thursday night, but luckily it didn't last too long. Unforunately, she tossed her cookies while sleeping in our bed, which made for quite the mess and lots of laundry.
By Saturday, with no one else sick, we thought we had escaped unscathed. I taught my class at Scrapbooks By Design, which was such fun. (Thank you, Ladies, for braving the -14C weather!) The night before I finished up the last layout I was using for the class, using a FREE digital template from Oscraps and Paislee Press:
A quick, simple layout using 12 photos of Audrey from 2007. I was glad to finally find a use for this fabulous Sassafras paper.
Later that day Q and I left on an overnight date that he planned start to finish. (We will spend Valentine's Day on a plane with two kids bound to Vancouver-- not very romantic!) We checked into a beautiful hotel, had burritos for dinner, then headed to the hockey game. Q's team is the Canucks, and I was suprised to see how many Canucks fans were there. I wore a jersey, like a good hockey fan should.
And I think our choice of beverages is about as Canadian as you can get:
A Timmie's for me, a beer for Q.
The Canucks won 5-3, so there was a happy husband. Unfortunately, it was overnight that I came down with the stomach flu-- at least we got to enjoy the evening first! The next day Q felt sick, and Lily, too, so we all settled in at home to recuperate.
On Monday, I scrapped with Sonya. In my continued scrap therapy to accept that I will have no more babies, I did these two layouts:
(Super froufy this one. All bling and glitter. Ah well, i have to get it out sometimes!)
(More simple below. I loved using up some of those Making Memories sparkle letters.)
Last night, I unexpectedly relapsed with the flu, so today was a quiet day with Frick and Frack:
I'm also finishing up four layouts for the Spring issue of SACT. I wish I could share them now, because I love them all!
Okay, there's the update. I am off to put the girls to bed and (please, please, please) get a good night's sleep!
