I am still here, but I am not. My mom is in town so we are having fun playing scrabble, playing in my scraproom, and shopping for baby stuff. I am only online this morning because it is 4:00 am and my pregnancy insomnia is in full-swing!

Over the weekend was Jacob's birthday so both of my parents came in and we had a whirlwind celebration. Unfortunately, my dad has to work so he headed back on Sunday, but mom is here for another week! Yippee!!

So, obviously, Jacob had a great birthday. He is 12!?!? How did my little boy get so old? And funnily enough, he is growing like a weed too. We put a mark on the doorframe just 2 weeks ago trying to measure him for the Scout backpacking trip and on a whim, I put him back up against it this weekend...he has grown 1/2 an inch in just 2 weeks!?!

He is such a great kid, but I have to tell you...there is something about his birthday...he is never sick except the week of his birthday...
What is up with that??!!! This year we were lucky that it was just a cold (one year we had the fun of spending his birthday evening in the ER), but now it seems that both Ben and I get to share in the joy. I am just hoping that my parents don't get it.

Needless to say, I am desperately behind on my challenges, but that is okay...I am having fun! But because I hate to do a blog post without some sort of art, here is an old layout...

I hope that everyone is doing well! I will be playing serious catch-up with everyone and everything next week...I promise!

Sounds like you are having fun with your mom. That's so cool. I just have to say I am so happy that I am not the only one who doesn't like to blog without sharing some art. With my scrapping MoJo all but gone since the holidays I finally had to break down and post with no art....otherwise my blog would have been abandon for another month.

Enjoy your visit!!
