Whew! It has been an exciting week here on the Farm...The January releases went up for sale, Marie had her adorable Lily Anya, and the Anya I'm using on my card today was given as a free gift to all of our fabulous TGF friends! Sweet!
I am running on VERY little sleep right now so I'm not sure I adore my card, in fact I really don't like the way it came out, sadly. I sure do adore New Year's Anya, though! :) She is darling, isn't she? I used some leftover "Snow Day" paper from the Crate paper 6x6 stack (one of my goals is to not BUY until I am done using all of my papers and well, I will not be buying for a while, trust me. This ONLY goes for paper though, haha ;)
This week's FFF Challenge is a sketch by our AMAZING and talented DT mate, Mercy Kerin. Here's the sketch:
Well, I can tell you that we have been VERY busy at the Diedrich abode. After coming back from a trip to see our favorite cousins over New Year's eve weekend, we returned full-speed to school starting again. Today is my ELEVENTH wedding anniversary...I am so excited about that too- love ya, babe! For all my FB friends who are friends w/ my DH too-you know what a great guy I have. We are so lucky...AND, to ring in the new year and our ELEVEN year celebration-we have a BRAND new addition to our family. Introducing:
Kekipu Sparklepuff Diedrich
(pronounced Kee-kih-poo...Kekipu means "REBEL" in Hawaiian :)
Born November 8th, 2010 (just 8 weeks old)
Weight at Vet appt. yesterday, ONE pound, ONE ounce ;)
and yep, Ava TOTALLY came up w/ her middle name, and the boys have shortened it to "Keeks" which makes me laugh, hee hee ;)
She has DEFINITELY been keeping us busy, but smiling ear to ear and is the sweetest little thing EVER! I definitely feel like a parent of a newborn-in fact, Marie and I were laughing saying we can chat during 2am feeds and in my case, letting the pup out at 2am when she wakes up crying, LOL! So far she has been very good and we just ADORE her-the kids are head over heels and are very protective over her and are fighting over who gets to do what for her. Hopefully that won't wear off any time soon, LOL!
Well, that's all for me now-SORRY i've been MIA-but this is why! I will be by your blogs soon-I've missed y'all! Lots of squeezy puppy hugs, everyone!
