To make this year's Sr. hockey memory books. A few of the boys have made the papers, so I have those articles to include in pockets in their particular albums.
Then some wonderful ladies over on the Cricut message board are helping me out by cutting the team images I need for this project from a cartridge I don't have. I will try to remember to post pictures of the final albums. They won't be large - after all these young men are off to college and there is a good chance these won't go with them. However, they will be designed to fit/store nicely on a shelf. Prior years players tend to take them once they move out of their houses.
Quick puppy update - they are growing fast! Back when we got them.
Six months old now and growing to be even more fun and useful! These giant puffballs are a blast outside, they learn quickly and are very intelligent. They love the weather - the colder, the better. It was -7 and windy the other morning and we figured they would be in the barn with the cats out of the wind. Nope, these two were laying outside spread across a giant snowdrift just relaxing. If it is snowing, they prefer to stay outdoors rather than in their wonderful barn. These two hit panic mode when taking to the vet - basically they turn into heavy dead weight and don't move - flooring makes them nervous. Luckily, only one more visit (at spaying time) and then our large animal vet takes over their care. They guard their turf well even at this young age and it is exciting watching them learn new duties (they are Great Pyrenees Mountain Dogs in training to be our livestock guardians). Their favorite pastime right now - playing king of the mountain and digging tunnels in a few different large piles of snow we have right now.
