My Great News!!!

I've been waiting a long time to share this with you all...but I am officially a member of the Odd Bird Planet Design Team. I am very excited to start in December!

My trip to Portland was parent's new house is absolutely gorgeous. You can see the outside of it in the pic below. I'm happy for Anna to have her own house...but sad to not be in my mom's house. It was nice to see my grandma and she's doing a bit better now that she's adjusting to being up here in Oregon.

As always, the kiddos are just a bundle of fun. They're such hams...its hilarious. I think Michael should be a "Gap" baby!

I let Emily play with my Copic Markers and she fell in love with my ballet Tilda I colored. So I let her have it, and she named her "Pink," lol.

My Aunt Nancy took us shopping, since my Grandma wanted to buy some things. While they were shopping, I let Emily ride on the cars. Elmo is her favorite, so she had tons of fun!

I hope you all had a great Monday...and its back to work for me!
