Stampin’ Up! Alpine Adventure in Plaid!

Good Saturday, y’all!  We’re waiting for another round of snow for the weekend and then looking for beautiful Colorado days all next week.  Whoo-hoo!

My friend from…forever?…is coming up on Monday and spending the night with us.  I met Sally when we were Girl Scout riding camp counselors (she was Bak and I was Pegasus and we still call each other those camp names!) in the Colorado mountains when we were in college.  We very very quickly became the best the best of friends.  No matter how long we’re apart – when we get together, it’s like there’s been no time passing at all.  Y’all have friends like that I hope! 🙂

A few (maybe…20?) years ago, we’d have had a “sleepover” – complete with roasted marshmallows (even if we had to roast them over an electric stove.  Yes – that’s doable!), multiple movies (like…Man From Snowy River and Star Trek), and we’d have stayed up most of the night.

These days?  I’ll have a blog post to do for Tuesday and she’s got an online meeting she has to do for her work!  Oh – and we’ll crash by 9, I have no doubt.

We’re not quite as spry as we used to be, huh? 😉

But – we’ll have a good time, there’s definitely no doubt about that! 🙂

My card for today uses a new (to me) set from the 2018 Holiday Catalog called Alpine Adventure!  I put it over some blue plaid that I created with the Buffalo Check Background.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Let It Snow Place

Mornin’, y’all – it’s Monday again.  The last Monday before Christmas.  With any luck, I’ll be headed to the post office soon and then we can get to the next large to-do list:  get ready for company arriving on Wednesday!  Whew…good thing the holidays only come around once a year!

So – Finn is back in the news.  And the headline reads:  “Finn-Chewie Hits Puberty”!  In other words, he’s a teenager.

I know this because he’s doing all the things teenagers do – testing the limits, deliberately provoking his parents, avoiding hugs, etc.  I call him and he heads the other way – never out of sight, just not responding.  We’ll be playing with the bumper and I throw it and he races to it…and right by it to go sniff something else.  And then gives me “the paw” when I call him.  Five minutes later – coming instantly when called, trotting right by the golf cart, just sweet as can be!

Like any parent of a teenager – I love him.  But…sometimes he’s a little hard to like right now.

And then – like any teenager – right before a parent just breaks down and kills him dead….he does something adorable.

The hanging out tongue does me in every time! 🙂  And you think he doesn’t know it?  Oh yes…he does! 🙂

This, too, shall pass and I’m betting we make it out the other side more mature and with lots of character.  Cuz…what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, yes??

My card for today is another Snow Place family portrait.  But this time that devious penguin didn’t make it into the picture!  Take a look-see:
