DARE to be ADORABLE...

Hey all!

It's time for another Whimsical Wednesday edition of The Diedrich Dare!  We are SUPER excited to be welcoming Krista Vantol as our newest DAREDEVIL this week...I have adored her blog, "Crafty Little Pigtails", from the minute our friend Andi pointed it out to me and couldn't be happier to have her join us!  Welcome, KRISTA!

My little guy Jack has QUITE the fun sketch again today....today being his 8th BIRTHDAY along with his twin brother Nick!  I can't believe it...I know that EVERY parent says this, but really...WHERE does the time go?  These birthdays, although so much fun, make me a little sad, too.   But while I lament, AND celebrate the miracle of these twin boys and how beautifully different they are, here is DDSC29:

Love the buttons!

Today just so happens to be another preview day on the Club Anya and Friends Blog as we debut a new set with the lovable OLIVER and AMELIA..."Buddies".   This adorable little duo will be released on Thursday, APRIL 1st...thats TOMORROW at The Greeting Farm!  Here is cute little Oliver and his pupster, using the sketch:

There is SO much fun going on today I don't even know where to start.  I'll say it again, I just CANNOT BELIEVE my twin boys are EIGHT YEARS OLD today!   HAPPY BIRTHDAY Jacky and Nicky!  Mom and Dad love you BUNCHES and can't believe how big you guys are!  We will be celebrating with dinner, cake, and of course, presents later!  We will go to Grandma and Grandpa's tonight with our cousins who are in town.

Speaking of which, I am still having an AWESOME time with my cousin/BFF Kim :)   Her, her husband, and two girls have been here since Sunday and I can't believe today is their last full day here.  They leave tomorrow and I'm so sad!  We have been having the BEST time.  Here's a picture of us yesterday taken at the top of Lookout Mountain near Chattanooga, TN.  Kim just so happens to be one of our DAREDEVILS to so be sure to leave her some love on her blog today!

Well, be sure to head on over to the DIEDRICH DARE Blog to see what the rest of our fearless Daredevils have been cooking up, and visit their beautiful blogs, as well:


Thanks for stopping by today-we hope you'll be able to play along!

Live, Love, Laugh, and Smile...

Jessica ;)  xoxo

this card is so cool. I wanted to say lovely but since it's a boy card I wanted to be not so girly in my comments tee hee. I hope your boys had a fabulous birthday. I always wanted twins- you are such a lucky mommy! xoxo
