We were given a pass to Kiddoz Play Center here in Bend. We took Peyton their after lunch. This place is fabulous! Huge room for Peyton to run to his hearts content and a couple play structures, push toys and all sorts of fun things! Although he did think it was fun to take a push car, lift it up into a boat play structure then push it down the slide when we weren't paying enough attention! lol....he didn't want to go, but we had to as it was Maddy's feeding time. He had a blast and it was just what we needed, especially me. My mood and spirit is much better this afternoon!
Well, I have a load of laundry to change and want to grab a quick snack. Before I forget to mention, the Ronald McDonald house is amazing! They have an awesome play room which Peyton just LOVES. They also have washer and dryers for us to use along with laundry detergent! They have tons of food and a nice kitchen for us to use. The people who work here have amazing hearts and have been so friendly and helpful. We received a quilt (I'll post pics later) along with stuffed animal for both Peyton and Madeline! We are so greatful for them allowing us to stay here. They are a 5 min. from the NICU and have a golf cart that we can use to go back and forth!

A lot have asked what Peyton thinks of his little sister. He wasn't sure what to think at first. We finally convinced him to hold her hand and she squealed (I think he squeezed her to tight). That scared him and he wanted to go back to my room and play. The second time in he asked to see her and touch her and talked to her nice and softly. He also blew her kisses....such a sweetie he is! Here some more pictures!

We've come up with another name or two we are considering. But are always up for more suggestions. Here is what we have: Alexandria (nickname Alex), Adeline (nickname Addy) and Paige (thanks for that suggestion Arlinda!).
We are finally feeling better at our house! Peyton is sure back to his perky, full-of-it self running wild! I think he was so happy to be feeling better that he couldn't stop running for 3 days! I'm feeling tons better. But still have to sleep with a bunch of pillows under my head, so needless to say I wake up with a kink in my neck and a back!
Here is a layout I've had done for a while, just couldn't come up with a creative title. I finally gave up and just put 'Snow Day!' and called it good.

While in Bend we were able to meet up with my Aunt Sherry for a quick bite to eat. It was so nice to visit with her for a bit. We also stopped by Carters to see if they had any good sales going on. Kimmy, you'll be happy to know mom and I found few really cute pink outfits! lol.....I figured that with baby due in a couple months I should at least have a few girly outfits for her. It was a lot of fun! Peyton was too darn cute. He wanted to help shop for his baby sister so he'd pull something off of a rack, bring it to me and say 'Look, Mommy, look! Isn't it cute?' and 'Aww...how cute'. He's going to be such a great big brother!
Some exciting news...I am the featured member on Scrapbook Dreamer (www.scrapbookdreamer.com)! I was shocked to receive the e-mail saying I'd been chosen! This was my first site that Tammy got me hooked on and I have really enjoyed how friends and uplifting all the members are!

Chris is outside braving the wind to take the lights down. Peyton is watching Jungle Book 2 and I just got done starting a load of laundry, a load of dishes and making cookies!
Hope everyone had a wonderful evening last night and enjoying a day of rest today! We are still struggling a little at our house (me with my cold and Peyton with his bronchitis). But Peyton seems to be doing somewhat better! YEAH!
Have you started drooling over the fantastic cards you've seen so far? I sure have!
I used a Purse Card with Gift Certificate layer from Creative Cuts & More. We have had gloomy weather here and I haven't been able to get good lighting for a good picture. I have a random polka dot stamp that I inked up in red and created a depth to the card. I adhered a few embellies and tied a couple pieces of ribbon onto it. Easy as that! Gift cards have become quite popular Christmas gifts. I think this card is a fun way to give them!
Here is a shot of the inside. The die cut comes with the inside layers, one of which has slots for the gift card!
Now on to the ever so talented Lila.
