We had a room full of women and a few high school girls putting memories in photo albums. We were "busy little bees" all weekend. There were two Cricuit machines going, paper punches, "hammering" for eyelets and brads...you name it and it was probably there. It is always fun to see how each of us has our own scrapping technique.
I was able to complete 13 pages in Ethan's album. Now, keep in mind, Janice and I were there for 5 hours last night and I was there from 10-4:30 today, so they weren't full days. Ethan was so excited when I got home and showed him the new pages in his album. I think he looked at his album about 6 different times before I finally told him it was time for dinner and the album needed to be put away. He was so proud of his pictures of "Baby Ethan". The next set of pages to go into his album will be his 1st birthday. I ended there because I need to make a little trip to Treasury of Memories. I'm needing some John Deere paper and stuff and I'm hoping TM will have just what I need.
So, here are some pictures of the weekend.
This is my friend Janice, another friend, Kathy Jansen, and myself...hard at work, completing many pages!
This is our friend Shelly. She gave us all a good laugh this afternoon. She is wearing two pairs of glasses just to see whatever it is that she is putting on her page and get it on straight. I think it's time for Shelly to invest in a new pair of glasses...hehehe.
Here are just a couple of my favorite pages from the weekend. I realize the lighting isn't the greatest...sorry!

***Oops...I made a mistake when posting this...the scrapping slumber party is in March. How does one make such an error? So, that's 3 scrapping events in 4 weeks. (Thanks Janice for catching my mistake!! Good thing I had it on my calendar correct!)

Another picture of the sisters! They have stolen their daddy's heart! :)
I got a call last night around 8:30 pm that I needed to get Brenna (Todd's daughter) as Todd and Trisha were headed to the hospital. We were so excited that the time had finally arrived. Brenna came to our house and I camped out in the family room with her as we would be getting updates throughout the night. At 2:50 am, the phone rang and it was Trisha. She was dilated to 6 cm and they were ready for Brenna to come in to see them. Brenna really wanted to go to the hospital with them at 8:30 pm but we convinced her that she really needed to get some sleep before becoming a big sister. Whew...glad that worked! I have never seen a child wake up so fast and throw on clothes. She had picked out the "perfect" outfit before we had left her house earlier. She and I were out the door by 3:10 am and at Cruisin' Coffee by 3:15. Todd was in much need of coffee as he had been up since 4:00 am Friday for work.
We arrived at the hospital by 3:35 am and found our way to Trisha's room. Brenna was so excited when we walked into the room. She snuggled with Todd for awhile and then the Grandmas started to arrive so she snuggled with each of them for a bit too.
By 5:30 am, we were leaving the room as it was getting close for Miss Paige to begin to make her way into this world. At 6:30 am, Todd came to the waiting room to get Brenna as she was the first one to meet her new sister and got to have some special sister time with Paige.
I think Trisha is going to get a bow of some sort in Miss Paige's hair!
My sister has waited so long for this absolutely perfect day! She is so proud of her precious little baby girl.
Todd's girls... :)
It was a perfect morning! Brenna (McPhail) and I are now going to go lay down and get some sleep so that we can head back in to Bellingham this afternoon to see our precious sister/niece again.

Everyone enjoying their dinner...funny how we didn't have any battles with the kiddos finishing their dinner. They all finished so quickly.
