Happy Birthday Abbey & Digi Shack Thursday challenge

WOW, it has been a few days since I posted. Things have been crazy over here in our house. Last Wednesday my husbands aunt passed away, and on Sunday, my husband tripped outside and broke his ankle in two different places. So, needless to say it's been all me. He broke his right ankle, which means he can't drive, and really can hardly walk. We are seeing the orthopedic surgeon today to get a date for surgery. He will need a plate and screws to keep the ankle lined up. I am telling you, when it rains it pours.
My daughter is also making her 1st communion this weekend and I have been trying to get ready for that as well. So this is the reason for my lack of post. Not enough time in the day for me.

WOW....Haw time flies when you're having fun. My Daughter Abbey turned 8 yesterday and it was blowing my mind. Amazing how fast time goes. I can clearly remember the days when she was an infant and loved to be snuggled, and now, Still likes to be snuggled, but not in front of her friends.

For her special day yesterday, I made Choc Chip cookie sandwhiches for her to bring to school and share with her class, and then I went and had lunch with her at school and treated her to a McDonalds Happy meal. She was very popular at lunch (hehehe).

When I was making the cookies for her class, I decided that I would use the left over cookie dough and make Abbey a giant cookie for her birthday, instead of cake. I frosted it with choc frosting and added some pink sprinkles. Well, as you can see from the photos, this was a BIG hit. She took at bite and said "I am in love". She's so silly.

Today is Digi Shacks Thursday challenge, and the challenge at hand is a sketch challenge . My favorite. I used DIgi Shacks weaved flower pot and saying and some new Making Memories paper I got from The Paper Tree.

So, if you're looking for a challenge, head on over to the Digi Shack and play along. While you're there, check out their new Digi packs. They are super cute and at a great price. I am loving the DIGI world. So easy! Have a great Thursday and maybe I will see you on Friday.

P.S. Today is also Three Clover Design Thursday. Due to lack of time I was not able to play, but if you would like to join them, head on over. Her challenge today is Ship Shape. ANy card that is not square or rectangle. Check it out if you get a chance! There's a prize.....
