A Sneak Peak Just For You!

Nothing much has been going on the past two weeks- the reason for no updates last week.

September 3, Tim & I drove down to Giddings to celebrate Grandma Kalbas's 78th birthday at Joseph & Kalen's new house. It was a nice party.

Kalen lighting the sparkler candles (78) on the cake she made for Grandma Kalbas. She even went all out and had home made icing! YUM!

September 4, SFA played Texas A&M at Kyle Field. We went out to see Dustin & Lauren who were tailgating. It looked like SFA had a decent turn out of fans- too bad they lost.

Later in the week, Auggie's crib came in! I was super excited.. too bad there was a piece messed up so now it's sitting in the room disassembled. :( I was finally able to get ahold of the company and they're sending us a new piece. It better work this time!

I had a doctor's appointment a week ago today. Everything went well. Auggie is still head down. Hopefully he'll stay that way! :) My blood pressure was okay and I actually stayed about the same weight-wise. Everything seems to be going well... no swelling or anything, so we're happy! I go back next Tuesday for another check up.
Only 9 weeks left!!

This past weekend, we went out to Thorndale to celebrate Cohen's 4th and Libby's 3rd birthdays. The kids had a blast playing with their new toys.

I have been crafting A lot, though. Since September 3, I have finished 2 birthday presents, 6 cards and 5 layouts. All but 2 cards have been delivered and they're going out tomorrow. They're for a friend who has 2 wedding to go to in October- We definitely know how she feels! :) I was extremely excited she asked me to make them. For those of you who keep up with my Facebook posts, you've seen the next few pictures.

Letters for Cohen's room in the new house- Dinosaurs and Checkers. As soon as he unwrapped them, he laid them out on the floor and was like "C-O-H-E-N!!"

Letters for Libby's room in their new house- Butterflies and Stripes.

The 5 layouts I have finished are for Auggie's baby book. I'm hoping to have the majority of it finished for the shower in Giddings- that means I have 12 days and only like 30 more pages! lol.

Andd now for your sneak peak!

1. Sign-In page for the Giddings Shower. Each vertical rectangle opens up with more lines for people to sign on. Page 1 of 2
2. Sign- In page for the La Porte Shower. The invitation lifts open to reveal the lines the guests will sign. The tags are for journaling. Page 1 of 2
3. The front page of August's book. The white rectangle will have a picture. Page 1
4. 2nd Trimester page with ultrasound pictures. The u/s picture is folded like an accordion to reveal more ultrasounds. Page 1 of 2

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you enjoyed the sneak peak of Auggie's baby book- they won't be going on Facebook.

Tim is off to work- he'll be out doing a spotlight tonight and tomorrow and 2 times next week! He's definitely getting his hours in!
