Catching Up

So it has been an AGE!!!! So much has happened in the past couple of months and I am still trying to recover from it all!

Firstly, we had our beautiful baby girl on Tuesday 20th September, at 3.41am. She is perfect and just so so beautiful - I am totally in love with her. We named her Emersyn Marie and she is a little sweetheart. Growing so so quickly though - I wish you could just hit the pause button for a little while...

 It was a fairly normal labour (ie. painful!!!!!) and I had so much on my mind at the time that is was hard to concentrate on what I needed to do (getting the baby out!!!!) - hehehehe - see, we were moving house the next day and Tuesday was meant to be my mega packing day and here I was in hospital not able to help at all with all that needed doing at home!?!?!?!?! Of course having a baby was much more important, but I would NEVER recommend having a baby and moving house anywhere in the same month, let alone the same week! I was so exhausted from all the packing and the extreme discomfort of being hugely pregnant and not able to sleep or move! :) Thank goodness for my wonderful husband, parents and parents-in-law and some lovely ladies from church who finished packing for me.

They sent me home on the Wednesday afternoon and my husband drove us all to our new house - an hour away. Thank goodness all the big furniture was in its place - all we had to do was throw sheets on the beds and put the kids in.

So all in all a totally eventful week. All I can say is paying for removalists was a life saver and something we will DEFINITELY do next time we move!

So - yes I have crafted a little over the last few weeks, but as my camera power cord is still packed in some random box somewhere I haven't been able to recharge my camera to be able to upload photo's. I will post some photo's of our new house as well once I can locate it.

And other exciting news - Lisa and I are attending the Regional Seminar in November!!!!!! Super super excited but totally freaked out about swaps!!! Anyone out there have any advice/guidelines we should follow?? So looking foward to getting to meet some local stampers as well and really get back into the groove of crafting frequently - its been one hell of a year!

Thanks for bearing with me through such a looong post - come again soon and I promise to have some craft to show you.

Have the best day!
