Age Is Just A Number...

I hope you all had a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Can you believe January is almost among us...just two days left of 2008!!

Tomorrow is a really special day... not only is it New Year's Eve, but it's my youngest son's birthday!! My baby will be turning 4!!!

Four years ago was really emotional for my husband and me!! Aidan was born 10 weeks early and only weighed 3.5 pounds. He couldn't breath or eat on his own and was given a 50/50 chance of survival. It was devasting!! I didn't get to see him until the next day and didn't get to hold him for a couple more days...for a mother that is so hard!! January 5th I was released from the hospital...without him!! It was the worst drive of my entire life...turning around to see an empty carseat!
My husband and I came everyday to the hospital to visit...it was really hard!! We never knew what to expect...one day he was doing really great, but the next was worse!! One step forward, several steps back!!
But he was a fighter!! After 5 weeks, he was finally able to breath and eat on his own and then was able to come home a week later!! It was Valentine's Day!! Such a joyous day!! So you can see why his birthday is even more special to us!!!

I had the pleasure of getting to work with the "Age Is Just A Number" kit for January at Paper Popsicles!!
I dedicated this kit to my son, so here are the creations I made....

Thanks for looking!!

Can You See It??

My car that is!!
It's seems to be missing!! lol

OMG...we got 20inches of snow within the last 24 hours!!
They have shut down the city streets and are advising everyone stay inside!!
A lot of businesses are closed along with all the schools, garbage pick-up...and the list goes on and on from there!!
They said we are expected to see another 3-7inches today and then 3-7inches tonight!!
We are "officially" snowed in!!
But you know what that means.......LOTS of scrapping!!! lol
At least I can see that positive out of this!! ;)
