Holy Blogging Batman!!

Okay, so I know I promised I would be better at blogging in the New Year, but alas, I've been crazy busy, and actually pretty sick and tired too...but I have a fabulous reason for that....

YAAAYY!!! This is actually an old ultrasound picture...It was taken when I was 7 weeks and 4 days...I am now 16 weeks pregnant with baby number 4!!! It's so crazy! Most days I'm really excited about it, but there are some days where I think I must have lost my mind to think that 4 kids!!  So, after 3 boys, we are kinda hoping this is a girl, but honestly, we don't really care as long as baby is happy and healthy :)

The sad part about this is that I'm losing my scrap room :( But I'm actually kind of excited because I'm moving it into my kitchen. I'm picking up a really fun china cabinet for my scrappy supplies on Friday and I have a long counter in my kitchen that pretty much doesn't get used. So I will have a comfy puffy bar stool type chair, and I can scrap in the daylight around my family instead of in my dark basement (which will soon become our bedroom). I'm just going to have to get really good at putting a million scrap supplies into one tiny space and keeping it clean too! 

Well, on that note, I actually do have a layout to show you too!! I know right?! It's craziness! But I'm finally not feeling like I have to drag myself to bed at 9pm and I'm able to function without wanting to throw up too, so I've actually been spending some time in my scrap room! 

Kiwi Lane is having a challenge about "Love". I had taken this picture before Christmas when we packed up some shoe boxes for kids in third world countries for Christmas presents. I asked my oldest son to write a note to each of the kids, and this was what he wrote! It definitely brought a tear to my eye!! What a sweet and caring boy that child of mine is! So I thought this would be perfect to play along with that challenge! 

Berry 71 Bleu is having a fun white space challenge and I think this layout has a good amount of white space, so I thought I'd play along too! The girls over at The Paper Girls are challenging us to use Washi Tape. I'm kind of addicted to Washi, and I used a bit of it on this

Also, Seriously Creative Challenges is having a really fun photo challenge, and it ends tomorrow at midnight! There's only one entry so far, so your chances of winning a 10.00 gift certificate to their online store are pretty good!! Head on over there and play along!!

Well that's all for me today! I've got some scrapping to do! I really do plan on keeping up this blog more than I have been lately, so please do stop by again!!
