i'm baaaack!

And thanks to the post scheduler you didn't even know I was gone.  I love that it's possible to schedule posts for a few days.

Last week was CRAZY!  The first part of the week began with a major internet access problem . . . I was without internet access for a few days.  I thought I was going to lose my mind without access to all the lovely blogs that I read.  ;)  But then I received a call from my dad that my grandma had been rushed to the hospital in the middle of the night with what they thought was a stroke.  We were able to pack up and head out of town to visit her and spend some time with family.  Tests revealed heart issues instead.  She had a pacemaker put in and was able to return to their retirement home a few days later.  Look at how well she's doing:

It's so amazingly meaningful to see my children with my grandparents.  After a little pep talk, my super active girls did so well playing quietly, coloring pictures, behaving their absolute best during our entire visit.  I was so proud of them!

We stayed with my parents during our visit.  My parents did a great job of filling the girls up with cupcakes and tootsie rolls . . . notice the orange frosting circling their mouths.

While I was away, I had limited time and access to attend to blog-related e-mails and questions.  So . . . I'm asking for your grace and patience as I get back into my blogging routine and wade through my e-mails.  Basically, if you left a question in the comment section or e-mailed me anytime after Tuesday morning, I will respond . . . it just might take a few days.  

Don't forget to enter the giveaway from The Felted Pear on Saturday's Stuff Your Stockings.

Tomorrow, I have partnered with one of my super sponsors for a great giveaway, so keep your eyes open for ways to enter here and on facebook throughout the week.

Craft on!
