I was featured on Creative Parties and Showers!!!!

As you can tell, I have been in a blogging slump lately. Partly because I have been sick and also because I feel like nothing exciting has been going on.

Anyways....remember that Canada Day party (which by the way will be even bigger and better in 2010 given the amount of Canada gear I picked up this summer on our trip)...well, I submitted it to Creative Parties and Showers, an amazing website with tons of great ideas and awesome parties. I honestly didn't think it would be featured since it was my first party to submit but guess what.......IT WAS FEATURED TODAY! So Cool! Check it out here!

Definitely a way to kick you out of your blogging slump and help you smile when you are checking email at 4 AM because your munchkin won't sleep.

Stay tuned for details on Peyton's first birthday party coming soon....

Home Sweet Home

We have actually been home since Saturday but it has taken us a couple of days to get back into the swing of things and for me to have a chance to sit down and blog (I really don't have the time now considering the insane amount of laundry that is waiting but it has waited since Saturday so it can wait a couple more hours).

I could really go on and on about our trip and what a great time it was but that would be way too long. In summary we had LOTS of great family time, beautiful scenery, cool weather, ice cream, watching Peyton entertain us, reading four books, running a 10K, Settlers of Catan, and pure relaxation!

Here are some pictures to help summarize our vacation....
