Stampin' Up Family Fun & Sister Blog Candy

Family - it has come to mean everything to me.  We celebrated Grandma Ovitt's memorial over the weekend and so much was shared about the foundations we build over the years.  When I sat down at the table to finish my card fronts for a Christmas swap my youngest daughter Kaetlyn asked is she could make cards too.  Before long three of the four kids were at the table sharing laughter (a bit of chocolate - a crafting staple in our house) and my heart just swelled.  I found myself fighting back tears.  and I reminded myself for the second night in a row WHY I became a demonstrator.  I woke up the next morning to find a card and flower from my nine year old daughter waiting for me.  I was a proud Stampin' Up mom!!
This picture of my family was taking during the outdoor celebration on Sunday.  Myself, husband Blaine, son Ryan (21), daughter Sayde (16), daughter Kaetlyn (9), son Caleb (11) and son Steele (13).  The Lord has blessed my life and to Him I am forever grateful!
If you get a chance, stop by my sisters blog:  Isom Cre8tions.  She is offering up some yummy candy - leave a commet for a chance to win!!

Have a Blessed night!
