Exciting News and some kid stuff

I am happy to finally be able to tell you all that I am part of a new Design Team!! I was so excited to get the news on Monday!!  Scrap That! is a Canadian company based out of Alberta and their forum, blog and DT are all new.  I should get my first kit next week (awesome BG Marrakech papers and goodies!) and I can't wait to start creating for them.  Come on over and join in the fun!! 

Here is a LO I did for this week's sketch challenge over at Paws.  Awesome sketch, Marcee!! 

Yesterday was April Fool's Day.  I had to explain to Riley what it was, but once he got it, he and Kieran (who didn't really get it but wanted to be like Riley) had fun telling stories to everyone. He told Grammie he saw a bear in our backyard.  I think he almost had her until he told her it was swinging on our swings :)  He told Daddy there were frogs in the water table at school and they were jumping all over the classroom!

Another funny Riley story....Kevin was cleaning up the kitchen yesterday and put one of those microwavable steamer bags in the recycling.  Riley told him he should rinse it out, so he did and put it back in the recycling.  Riley says, "no Daddy, put it back in the cupboard so we can reuse it."  Then: 

Riley: "Knock, knock"
Kevin: "Who's there?"
Riley: "A person...."
Kevin: "A person who?"
Riley: "A person that doesn't use things again!"

Kevin finally gave in and put the bag back in the cupboard :) I laughed A LOT when I heard that one!!

I was on preschool duty yesterday.  It was a pretty good day :)  The kids were cute and good.  And snacktime was fun because they all had cups and saucers with juice and tea biscuits pretending to be kings and queens.  Awww, so cute!  While I was there Mom and Dad were looking after Kieran and Bridget.  They taught B that a dog says "woof, woof".  She is just too cute saying it!

In case you were wondering (I know you must be, haha) my finger is still numb.  It's driving me crazy and making typing kind of difficult.  I'll worry about it later though.  For now I'm having gum graft surgery tomorrow so I'm more worried about that.  Doesn't sound pleasant at all but I've been putting it off for 5 years.  Wish me luck!
