New Blog Header

Ok, so I spent last weekend in Wisconsin visiting my family. Well, we had a birthday party for my niece (Hi Makayla...we love you!) and the party was at a bowling alley. Sounds like a lot of fun.....and for the most part it was.....except.....the second time my darling daughter was getting ready to bowl, she wanted to carry the ball herself. Okay, not such a bad idea...if the bowling alley doesn't have a step leading up to the lane. Bethany insisted that we couldn't help her. She tripped on the stair and landed chin first on the ball. Split her chin open and we ended up spending all but 10 minutes of the party in the emergency room. (Poor baby!) She had a concussion and a 2 inch gaping cut in her chin. Four stitches later and I'm sure the entire state of Wisconsin heard Bethany screaming. It took 3 of us to hold her down (wow, her 33 lbs sure came up with some awesome strength) They couldn't give her any more anesthetic than they did, and she felt every stitch. When we finally got finished and went back to the bowling alley everyone was waiting for us to get back because we had my nieces carseats in our car. Well, Bethany is fine now, just a little wounded that she didn't get to bowl and we have to go get the stitches removed on Friday. Thank GOD it wasn't worse!!!

On a brighter note, I was able to get my blog header changed this weekend.......no stamping done, but I think I figured out my new Photoshop Elements 6.0. Now the new task comes in scanning some SU paper and embellishments to use with it and create a SU! blog header. Hmmmmm. I got the elements for this from a digital scrapbooking kit SP ~ Promise Collection.

I also did get some of the cute little dove chocolate Easter Egg boxes that I saw on another blog done and will get them off my camera in the next couple of days and share them with you! (I had one in Bethany's Easter basket)
