Belated Happy Thanksgiving!

It seems I have been a slacker. Was my last post really on November 17th?

Well, I'm working on a how-to for you that should be ready in a day or two. Today, I need to catch up on orders from Thanksgiving weekend. For Thanksgiving, we all went to Orlando with my parents. SeaWorld and Animal Kingdom.

Highlights: Our gross miscalculation of how ready our kids were for the 3-D Bug's Life movie... which is ALL about scaring small children, it seems. My six year old and three year old were both crying their eyeballs out and had an early exit.

And the bugs weren't done messing with my kids yet! Big drama involving my son REALLY needing to go. We pulled over to let him pee in the grass. Ended up standing in an ant hill and Ryan and I got attacked by red ants. Apparently, he's allergic. He got just three bites, but they swelled up big time. He had red dots all over - I was freaking out thinking they were MORE bites - nope, just hives. I was very thankful we were 6 miles from the rest stop and got him Benadryl before it was too bad.

He is fine and I stayed home with him today. But I'm seriously rethinking that strategy! I'm pretty sure he's ready to go back to school now!

I hope you had a safe holiday with your family! And now that it's shopping season - let me know if I can help you pick the perfect scrapbooking gift for someone. e-mail gift certificates are great for last minute gifts or for picky scrappers!
