Fabulous February!!!!

 Wow what a great month! We are finally grandparents and we couldn't be happier. Evelyn Marie was born on February 15th  at 8 pounds and 12 ounces. She is adorable.  We are just so in love with her.
Sleeping Beauty

  We were worried that she might be born while we were away on our Florida trip the first week in February. But she waited and we got to see her shortly after her birth. What a blessing!
  Nathaniel and Kristin are pretty tired but are doing a great job as new parents.
  I forget how small everything is on a baby from their fingers to their toes. I just love her little tongue when she sticks it out and makes cooing sounds.
  I am looking forward to getting to know her better as she gets older. We are going to babysit two days a week which is going to be such a joyous time for us.
  Anyway, we have had a great February with our trip to Disney coming before Evelyn's birth.
For Evelyn
  I couldn't resist this outfit I found
at the Disney Store. We are starting early with the Mickey/ Minnie introduction. Isn't just too cute?
   I made this card for my daughter-in-law, Kristin. She has a birthday in February along with her new baby girl.

Inside sentiment
 I used a two stamp method to get this rose just right. This stamp set is from Stampin Up and  is called Roses in Winter. I really love how you use a darker pink on top of the lighter pink. The die cut label is from Spellbinders. I embossed each section of the background with a different folder. I saw this technique somewhere on Pinterest. I like it alot.
  I have spent a good deal of time rearranging my craftroom to be more organized and to take out alot of furniture that I did not need. It makes my room seem way bigger. I got this idea from my sister, Chris, as she has moved to a new home and is setting up her new craftroom. I noticed how open her space was and it made me want to have that same feeling. 
  I love what I have done so far. I am not quite finished, so next time I will post some pictures of the completely finished space. I will be putting some things in my sister's yard sale this spring for someone else to use them.
  I will finish this post with a few pictures of our Disney trip. We went with my two sisters and their spouses.
Also our adopted sister, Cindy, and her spouse, Dave.  We had a great time! Can't wait to go again.
All of us having fun at Magic Kingdom.
A cast member offered to take our
picture in front of King Neptune, I think.
We did have great fun.
At Animal Kingdom on the Safari Tour. I love this picture sinec
I usually only get their hind end. The tour was great 'cause we
saw lots of animals up close. We go early morning.

Russ and I at Epcot. We have
jackets on 'cause it is a
little chilly. 

Russ outside Be Our Guest. We
had a lovely meal there for lunch.
I would recommend this place
for good eating.

The guys having fun at Downtown Disney
These t-shirt models are outside the
make your own t-shirt place.

This is the yummy case at Downtown Disney. I can''t
remember the name of this store. We go there
every time we go to Downtown Disney and get their
chocolate dipped pretzels. 

This is the new roller coaster ride at Magic Kingdom called The Seven Dwarf"s Ride.
I really liked this ride 'cause I am not a roller coaster person, but I can do
this ride. So can small children, if that tells you anything.

You have to have a Dole Whip
when you go to Magic Kingdom. I hear
they are selling these at the other
parks, too. Good move...

The Electrical Light parade at Magic Kingdom is okay. I loved
Spectromagic, but they don't do that one anymore. I
wish they would bring it back , at least the music .

This is me at Epcot. Russ took this picture and I love it
'cause the flowers look so good. We are looking forward
to going again in the fall.
