"Buddy the Elf, what's your favorite color?"

As you may have noticed, I have been tinkering with my blog layout over the last 2 weeks or so. I recently downloaded a freeware program with much of the functionality of Photoshop without the hefty pricetag! has afforded me the opportunity to create some design elements and backgrounds for the site. So, I am not thrilled with my blog layout quite yet but I've had a delightful time learning about digital scrapbooking free downloads (Sarah Pitts, I'm thinking of you ma'am:)) and editing HTML. I have left the blog as is for about a week. I mentioned to my sweet sister Katherine that I think I want to re-do the blog header and what was her response? "Yeah, well it's a looks a little bit like Buddy the Elf designed it."

Wow. So, I'm sorry blogging friends if I have recently assailed your eyes with my design choices;). I promise I'm getting better...and maybe a tad less colorful...well at least not so colorful all at once.

Also, cute Ethan pictures are on the way. Oh, and he's cutting another tooth. Yep. Right next to the first one. We're guessing, based on the first tooth, he'll cut it by the end of the week, Lord willing! After 4-5 days of blissful sleep Ethan adopted a newborn sleep cycle at the end of last week as this tooth began to surface in earnest. Boy did his Mimi call that one! So, I'm looking forward to the second tooth and some more sleep!


  1. I absolutely LOVE the picture on the top of your blog. It's so sweet!

  2. So my "buddy the Elf" comment was definitely an Atoo moment.....I love you! AND I love the picture too---it is so sweet!!!
