Book of Dreams

I'm obviously new to this, considering this is my very first time EVER to make my very own digital scrapbook art. I don't know how to take out part of images that I do not want in there yet, (the green background in the photo of Morgan I took) and I am not so sure that there is a way to do that unless you do it on photoshop. And, well, we all know that I haven't learned squat on my photoshop stuff.   So I tried to hide it with some sparkles and angel wings, to make my angel, more angelic. I did this entire image from scratch.  I'm loving it!!! 

It is very addicting as I was told.  I am going to call this one my "Book of Dreams".  I am so looking forward to putting together some photo albums for grandparents for holiday gifts. 

Good Night, I am off to bed!

PS:  I am still so thrilled about MckMama and Stellan's status today.  Go God!!!! 

Ugh, my whole family is getting sick!


Both, me and hubby, woke up Monday morning not feeling all well. We sort of shrugged it off to allergies since we had a bit of a cold front hit us here in Florida. Today is now Wednesday and we do not feel any better.  In fact we both feel worse and now Morgan has it.  She is fussy, keeps spitting up and can't breath when nursing a bottle.  To top that off, I had to take my kitty to the vet today because he appears to have blood in his stool again.  Sigh!!  On the way home from vet, my car sends me an alarm saying "reduce engine performances".  Yea, the last time I got that message we were stranded at Disney in Orlando, when the car would not accelerate over 40 mph and we had to have it towed and drive a rental back to Coral Springs in the rain.  So, I call Land Rover and they send over a tow truck to pick it up.  My friend comes over to get me so I can get a rental from Enterprise, eat lunch and for the rest of the afternoon I have been doing my best to take it easy for my body hurts.  I can't breath and my baby girl is just as cranky.  I am sitting her counting down the time on the clock for when I can feed her cereal and put her to bed and get myself in bed.

Speaking of bed, last night was my first night to refuse Morgan her 2:00 AM feeding.  I got up and soothed her by rubbing her back and straightening her in her crib.  Sat in the rocking chair and let her fuss for about 10 minutes.  And when I say fuss, I mean just a little fuss, nothing dramatic at this point.  As she started to get a little wound up, I soothed her again, straightened her back up in her crib (she likes to turn sideways and gets herself stuck) and then I sit back down for another few minutes. This time she is getting a little more upset, so I get up and I soothed her by rubbing her head gently and slow.  I do this and she starts to doze off, until she finally did.  I was impressed for although it took about 45 minutes, it went smooth in my book! I went to bed, not 15 minutes later I hear her moving around and starting to fuss again and I quietly say to myself "no, no, no....go to sleep baby girl!".  As I watch the monitor from bed, she goes back to sleep and stays alseep till 6:30 AM when we get up around here anyways.  Go Morgan!!! Let's see how tonight goes!!! 

So, as I am sitting her trying to buy time from wanting to take some sleeping drug and sleep away this cold/allergies/flu for the next 3 days. I decided to play around and learn how to do MY OWN scrap design.  This is what I came up with on my very first try from scratch. It is simple, and it was fun. I want to make some for my own photo albums I plan to put together.  Scrap booking, I see, can become addicting.  Its fun, its easy and so up my alley. I wasn't good at the "real" scrap booking stuff.  Just couldn't ever find the time or get into it.  Anyways, take a peek at my first design!!!!  I just used photos I already had of the kids on file. 

Ugh....cranky pants is getting really upset so I better get off this computer!!! 


So I was a day off..... GREAT NEWS THOUGH!!!

Big Mac, MckNugget and Small Fry joyfully announce that they now have another brother!!

Our long-awaited little MckMuffin has finally arrived...(click his name below for more details)

entered the world this sunny fall morning
at 10:19 am, CST
weighing 6 pounds, 10 ounces
and measuring 19 inches long

As you can imagine, there is a lot going on here at the hospital. Please thank God with us that little Stlellan is here and be in prayer for these first hours of his precious life. 

The NICU attended the birth--which went very smoothly--and Stellan is with the NICU team now. MckMama is recovering and, in spite of a pretty low blood pressure, is feeling well. She has seen Stellan only briefly, but Prince Charming has been back and forth between her and baby Stellan. When she is stable, she'll be wheeled on her bed down to see their new baby.

Details on exactly how Stellan is doing as well as photos of the sweet baby will be forthcoming. But, let's just say that Stellan got a 9 and a 9 on his APGARS and the NICU team has yet to find a single thing wrong with him...

Happy birthday, sweet Stellan. You are God's miracle to us and you are finally here!!!!

Yea, GOD!!!!! 

Hello everyone! I have been following an amazing mom,MckMama, through her blog for the last several months. She is pregnant with her fourth child, and at 24 weeks gestation, she was told he had a heart problem and would surely die within days. She is now 36 weeks, 6 days along and is set to deliver baby Stellan tomorrow morning at 9:00 am CST. God has worked a miracle in this little baby, but he still has an enlarged heart and the doctors aren't sure what to expect when it begins beating on its own upon delivery. MckMama's friend, Esther, has set up a prayer vigil for tonight and tomorrow for MckMama. Feel free to hop on over and check it out and sign up for a time if so moved. If not, please just say a prayer for Stellan's safe delivery and his health thereafter. This is an amazing story.
